John and Guy at Chalong Fishing Park
John and Guy joined us yesterday afternoon. John is an experienced angler and has fished some of the top Thai venues with some great catches under his belt. Guy is comparatively a novice so it was no surprise that having banked a nice little Red Tail within minutes of starting he then went on to land a very nice Arapaima, possibly the largest fish that we have. We think it has only been caught once before. A baptism of fire if ever there was one.
Taking nothing away from John he also caught loads of fish, a couple of small siamese carp in the mix but the pacu had moved into his swim and were getting to the bait before the carp, not his target species but still extremely high catch rates which is what we are all about….”FUNFISHIN!”………🎣🐟🐠🎣🐟🐠🎣🐟🐠🎣🐟🐠😎

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!”…..??????????
