The largest carp caught in the 21st century
Lately Thailand has become a real Mecca for tourists, but few suspected that he might be the real capital for fishermen. Associated with such an extremely interesting fact, specifically the capture of big carp when fishing the bait in the 21st century.
The facts about carp
- Weight 120 kg
- Long more than 2 meters
- Age approximately 10-12 years
Particularly interesting is that the Thais have a rather small height and weight. The more surprising fact that the fisherman was able to tire and eventually get out of the water like a monster. The incident occurred on lake Bong Salaam, which is just over an hour away from the capital of Thailand.
Given that the residents of the Republic live pretty modestly, this trophy is not only a reason for pride, but also a pretty solid addition to the family budget. Carp is quite thick and hearty fish that can be a kind of meat substitute. Consequently, even if lucky didn’t sell to their neighbors the meat of this monster, then he is, at least for quite a long time is not spent on the purchase of meat or fish in the store. Revenues as you know are divided into two types:
Active income, such as salary, when a person gets “real money”.
Passive income, when a fisherman brings home the fish and do not want to spend the money of the family budget on buying fish.
