A Day For Arapaima

A Day For Arapaima

Day for Arapaima


Our pal “Lau Kau” returned for his second visit since escaping quarantine in Bangkok having come over from Denmark.
He messaged me the previous day saying that a bet was on with a couple of his mates and the challenge was to catch an Arapaima so he asked me if I had any tips. I suggested that he should get some fish From the market and we can safely say that it did the job as he landed 3 “Arrys” in a haul of well over 30 fish in a little over half a day so one very happy Dane who is now a couple of cases of beer better off.
Our African friend Usie also joined us for a short afternoon session. His first time fishing and he was also kept busy with several fish.
Great to see so many Arapaima coming out on a regular basis now, having been hard to catch until recently, so if you fancy some of the same with discounted rates why not join us for some ….”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!”…..??????????
