Quiet Weekend Customer Wise
A very quiet weekend customer wise. Sunday saw the return of a Malaysian regular who as ever had plenty of fish and our pal and season ticket holder Dave Allen also had a good haul in the morning.
With the afternoon so quiet and Monday our day off we decided to head to the West coast of Phang Nga. Jen had found a nice little place to stay which was cheap as chips and just across the road from long near-deserted beaches.
We went to the pier for the sunset and were surprised at how many locals were around with lots of people fishing and doing ok as well. As we walked back from the pier to the beach Jens’ ability to smell a beer kicked in as she spotted a mobile cocktail bar. It turns out that the Aussie guy (Wombat) and his wife had only opened up a couple of months ago and so it only seemed right to stop and sample the 50 baht beers while Jazzy played in the sand…perfect.
After chewing the fat with Wombat for a few more beers it was time to head back to the guest house and order dinner which was also very cheap but extremely good and delivered to the room where we sat outside, the only sound being the insects of the night, a couple more cold ones and an early night.
The following morning we were up early and we drove along the west coast road with some great scenery heading to Khao Lak and a 3 km bamboo rafting trip which was discounted due to the current situation. Another great experience and Jazzy loved it.
We then headed to the east coast and to the jetty where the boats go to James Bond Island but it seems that the lack of people here meant that nothing was operating so we headed back to Phuket where Jen had found a lovely restaurant “Bangpaeseefood” hidden away on the east coast, right on the beach amongst the mangroves, great setting and lovely food at good prices. Nice to get away and with things being as they are we did it all on a shoestring budget and we hope to go back soon with some friends and try out the fishing from the pier as well.
You can do the same here and take advantage of our reduced rates, hungry fish, lots of space, so why not come and 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!”…..??????????
