THAT’S A BIG FISH, MAN!
GLOBE-trotting TV star and world renowned fish specialist Jakub Vagner really put his strength and skill to the test when he won the battle with this stingray, estimated to weigh almost 400lb.
This huge male, measuring 1.75m across, took him more than an hour to land during a visit to the Mae Klong River in Thailand to assist scientists with research on giant freshwater stingrays.
The star of the hit series Big Fish Man, currently airing on Quest, was helped to carry out what he described as ‘one of his toughest fishing challenges yet’ by guiding company Fishsiam, and after capture the stingray was tagged and safely returned.
