MORNING WORLD…..

It was nice to see some old regulars Duncan and his Son “Beer” return for a few hours yesterday morning and plenty of fish for them.

James, who is originally from Hawai but now lives just up the road form us in Kata, was the only person that took us up on our beer and fishing offer (that we have now stopped) and James had already paid for this a couple of weeks ago so he used his ticket yesterday, 8 cold ones and well over 20 fish in a half day session he was one happy chap as was his little lad “Sawai” who spent most of the time playing with Jazzy but sometimes watching Dad who landed Amason Red Tail Cats, Tiger Red Tail Cats, Asian red Tail Cats, Walking Cats, Striped Cats and Pacu in a busy session. Some mutual friends came down to say hello so a great afternoon in great company…..it does what it says on the tin….”FUNFISHIN!”……silly rates for silly times, come and join us🐟🐠🎣🐟🐠🎣🐟🐠🎣😎

We have had a couple of people ask us if we are currently doing any deals and so the poster below should answer that question as we are basically offering our fishing at half price in an effort to tempt ex pats and remaining stranded tourists on the Island. All the usual things are included in the price and with very little pressure on the lake, very good catch rates are to be expected. We have removed our short 3 hour session as it would just not be worth doing and the half day package is great value anyway.
 
Please note that we do not offer hourly rates and the packages that we are offering do not even come close to meeting our running costs so please do not ask for further reductions.
 
We were also offering a half days fishing with 8 cold ones included a couple of days a week for just 1,000 baht (do the math) but we had no takers so we will have a re think.
 
Virtually all businesses here are struggling with the majority not even open and many perhaps closed for good. We are very aware that this is the same world over and this is not a cry for help, just putting it out there for you and the fish photos were all caught in the last week so why not come and catch some for yourselves and enjoy some “FUNFISHIN!”…..🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠😎

Loy Krathong-1

Loy Krathong

After last years drought we are happy to announce that with a lot of hard work and a decent rainy season the new lake is now virtually full and almost the same level as the original one so we thought that it was cause for some celebration.

Saturday 31st October is the date for the Thai “Loy Krathong” festival which is celebrated on the last full moon of the luna calendar. Loy Krathong literally translates to floating banana trunk which is what the floats were always originally made from and still are but often styrofoam is used these days as well as bread. The floats are decorated with flowers and candles and often hair and nail clippings along with some small change are added and are pushed out onto the water as an offering to the water Goddess Mae Khongkha to give thanks, wave good-bye to misfortune, wash away sins of the last year and make wishes for the coming year. It is also used to mark the end of the rainy season.

Many of us may feel that there has not been much to be thankful for over the last few months but one thing is for sure, we all want the next year to be better and we all have lots to wish and or pray for so we have decided to christen the newly filled lake and have our own little Loy Krathong festival right here. We will have the materials to make the floats late afternoon (or you can bring your own), a few cold ones, some music and a bar b q with friends, everyone welcome and if we all wish hard enough…..you never know and we can have a good time trying. Its also Halloween so if you wanna make yourself look silly feel free ! 🙏🌝🍌🍗🌭🍻🎼🎤🧛‍♂️🧟‍♀️🧙‍♀️

A very wet monsoon day

A Very Wet Monsoon Day

A very wet monsoon day1

MORNING WORLD…..

A very wet monsoon day saw our pal Mark Lawrence make the most of his day off from Islander Sports bar and restaurant in Rawai and join us for an afternoons fishing.
 
Mark set out to try to target the Mekong Cats and the Siamese Carp both of which have been hard to come by of late with the carp having little feeding flurries and then going off again and the Mekong on the missing list for weeks even months now. Both of these species are filter feeders and with little sun of late there is little algae so maybe that is why they are scarce but they are sure to turn on very soon as we approach the end of the rains.
 
Mark did have a couple of big lumps spit and even straighten hooks but it was still non stop action for him with well over 40 fish in around 4 hours and he said himself he only sat down once. Pacu, Striped Catfish and Walking Catfish were just going barmy with lots of fish on the drop and several double hookups and we wonder what the tally would have been if the predators were targeted more which Mark opted to do towards the end of the session and was rewarded with a nice Chao Phraya Catfish, a perfect ending to a very busy session and the picture of Marks float shows just how hard the fish were hitting it on the drop.
 
Want a bit of this ?? Very high catch rates and the bigger fish sure to start showing in numbers any time now.
 
Silly rates for these silly times, come and get involved and enjoy some “FUNFISHIN!”…….🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

These pics show some of the Mekong Giant Catfish caught towards the end of last high season. We hardly see these from when the rains start until around now as the monsoon winds start to turn and the rainy season draws to an end. If the last 3 years are anything to go by, when they turn back on, they go barmy and several of these crazy hard fighting fish are a real possibility in a day and believe me its knackering! We have a large head of these fish ranging from around 10kg to an estimated 50 kg and the first person to catch one of these brutes and get in the relatively cold water for the photo will get another session free of charge 😀.
 
The last of the pics shows just what a good monsoon season we have had this year with the main lake full to the brim and overflowing nicely into the new lake. Lots of work and money behind the scenes has gone into the new lake and more hurdles than you can shake a stick at but it looks like we are finally getting there, we just pray things change for the better and we will still be here so our customers and us can enjoy the improvements. Still lots to do and a good way off yet before things are completed but onwards and upwards, we’re determined and will do everything we can for our customers to carry on enjoying more……”FUNFISHIN!”……..🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

Our pal Bud Winters moved “oop north” last year and it was great to see him back here in Phuket for a couple of weeks holiday, he’s not lost his touch with 38 fish from several species in a little over 6 hours.

A big THANK YOU to Pim for doing a bar b q and to everyone that joined us on a wet and windy evening. Too many to mention and the support is much appreciated. We were blessed that the “Golden Chalice”🏆 stopped at our place last night and tonight it moves on to “No Name Bar” and “Walkabout Sports Bar” in Karon for a pool night before moving on to “The Living Room” in Karon for a double birthday celebration tomorrow night. Good friends supporting one another which is just about the only thing that is keeping us going in a very sleepy Phuket.

The fish are hungry, catch rates are very high and prices are very low so why not join us for some “FUNFISHIN!”….🐠🎣🐟🐠🎣🐟🐠🎣🐟😎
