We want to help you catch fish
We want our customers to catch fish and have an enjoyable day. It is what our business is all about. Myself, the staff and the guides, as their title suggests, are here to “guide”. To enable us to do this the customers need to listen and take advice from the guides. They know the water & the fish. Accurate casting & patience are the key factors in any fishing. Constantly winding a newly baited rig just means that the fish have not had time to get to the bait. Holding the rod in your hand will move the bait and spook the fish. Over tightening the clutch on the reel will result in fish being lost. Casting into other peoples areas because you have seen them just catch a fish will upset everyone. They caught because they listened! This is not directed at anyone in particular nor is it a rant but please help us to help you.
Thanks for Reading & Listening

Have been to Phuket many times, but our most recent visit my husband wanted to go fishing. We came across Chalong Fishing Park, and what a find! Firstly Jez (English owner) and his wife Chen extremely welcoming and helpful with plenty of knowledge of not just fishing but also of Phuket and other areas of Thailand. Within 1 hour my husband had landed an enormous chao phraya with several amazon red tail catfish in quick succession.
I fished for the first time ever and also landed a red tail catfish, my best day ever, a great peaceful place to be overlooking a wonderful big lake of course! Not to mention the pool with Big Buddha looking on down.
Food great, company great, lots of fun and laughter with ‘Boy’ also being an amazing guide to have for the day and many more after. We visited here 5 times during our 2 week stay.
Very easy to get to, very close to Rawai, Karon, Kata etc. Very central location to everywhere.
We will return for sure, can’t wait to come come back! Thank you Jez & Chen ❤️

Visited on 11 August with my two young sons (aged six and eight). Jez was exceptionally helpful in planning our visit, and very responsive to our questions providing great advice on how to make the most of our visit. We arrived at 9am and within ten minutes both my sons had caught a small fish (obviously good fortune, not guaranteed) – their first experience! We spent three hours there, the fishing was great fun, the staff (Boy) very helpful, the facilities are exceptional with a good selection of food and drink options, and there’s plenty of shade from the sun or rain! I’d definitely recommend Chalong Fish Park – thanks Jez for a great experience.

I went to Chalong fishing park on Sep 7th Sunday. Prior visiting there, I had communicated with the owner Jez. He is very responsive and a very nice man. Warned me that there is a Moto X going on opposite the pond that day which might somehow affect the bite rate.
Nevertheless, I still brought my Son over for a quick 3hrs session while Wife is doing her spa in the resort.
It is not a huge pond. But is nice, clean, cozy and relaxing place. There is a bar and food menu available at the pond. Pool n massage room also. One can find out more thru their website. Fishing area is equip with chairs and even sofa to rest on under the shade. Drinking beers while waiting for action. Truly relaxing.
The service staffs there are very friendly. The guide is very helpful, brought out extra tackles to ensure better catch rate. Also take times to explain and share types of fishes in the pond and method to catch them.
Overall experience is great !
Will definitely go back for more action when I am back in Phuket again.

I cannot talk more highly of this place.
My partner and I visited the park in July 2017. We found the staff to be friendly and extremely helpful. We honestly couldn’t fault their service. From baiting our rods, giving advice and helping me reel them in (I don’t know a lot about fishing).
We went for a short 2 hour session and we were going in with the hope of catching at least one fish between us both, but by the end of our 2 hour session we had caught 5 fish in total, 4 being large catfish!
While the 2 hour session was amazing I’d defiantly recommend going for at least 4! I wish we had!
Overall an amazing place to visit!
We are just disappointed we didn’t have more free time to visit them again before we go!
