Monster Carp Fishing in Hanoi – 1 Day

Black Carp are found in a lot of freshwater fisheries in Vietnam and can be targeted with very basic tackle. These Black Carp grow to massive sizes and was once thought to be the biggest and hardest fighting freshwater species in the world.

The beautiful Red River fishing lake is located in the stunning area of Red River side and is surrounded by stunning golden paddy fields and trees.

Red River Lake has been packed full of incredible looking Black Carp. The owners have stocked over 200 Carp in this lake from 40lb – 80lb and that’s not to mention the original Carp that were present already.

There are two lakes for you to fish from, the first and main lake for big black carp is around 5 years old and only 500m2. The other lake is 20.000m2 with it only being 10 years old
