In Lam Plai Mat, Khon Buri. They say it weighs over 300 kg. If I understand well they caught also a second one of about 150 kg.

That's a monster - reminds me of an incident in Spain I read of a few years ago. A British woman fishing in the river hooked a 200 kg catfish that dragged her into the water and she drowned.

I was fishing from rocks at Ko Proet near Chantaburi yesterday and caught 3 fish - total weight about 1lb I'd guess. But a Thai Guy caught a largish ray that then gave birth to 5 babies on the quayside - we dropped them into the sea and away they swam !

Just a nice mackerel would do me nicely.

In Lam Plai Mat, Khon Buri.

That's what they say in the news report, but I just found that Lam Plai Mat is not in Khon Buri district but in adjacent Soeng Sang district.

I am pretty sure that Lam Plai Mat is in Buriram province

This is close to SoengSang, about 15km south from SoengSang.
