MORNING WORLD…..

 
Canadian angler Ryan contacted us in the week and pre booked so the Canadian / English gang of 4 made the most of the bungalow shelter on a wet but busy morning with lots of fish and lots of laughs.
 
With things as quiet as they are and the football being on so late we did not expect to see other customers but a message from our pal Darren said different as he and the family joined us in the afternoon. With the bungalow bank now vacated they stepped in and they were also rewarded with plenty of action, great to see the kids enjoying it and a playmate or two for Jazzy.
 
Late in the day a couple from California also joined us and again plenty of fish from several different species to give us an unexpected relatively busy day.
 
The Siamese Carp are well on the feed and as yet we have no bookings for today so if the kids are off school or your taking a break from training why not take advantage of the reduced rates, lots of action 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!”…..??????????

MORNING WORLD…..

Our South African friend Glen Macdonald joined us on Wednesday morning and enjoyed a busy half-day session with well over 30 fish from several species. While we are blessed that we are allowed to open things have still been really quiet with Glen being the only customer so far this week and with the ridiculous catch rates coupled with slashed prices that can’t last forever anglers or those looking for something a little different to do with their day are really missing out on a great opportunity and quite probably having the lake to themselves, SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ITS BEST!

On a more positive note, the lack of customers has given us the chance to get on with the never-ending list of jobs that need doing and over the last few days we have upgraded our pumps and pipework that we use to get water from the nearby klong (stream) giving us a far more efficient system and larger volume of water. A massive difference is already evident, with the lake nearly full and a big thank you to our pal Steven John Wood from the Aussie Bar in Patong for all his help.

The next couple of days show some settled sunny weather and the forecast says there’s some wet stuff to follow, normal for the time of year and there’s ample shelter around the lake from both the sun and the rain so why not join us for some………”FUNFISHIN!”….YOU WON’T REGRET IT……..🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

As mentioned in our previous post our pals Rob and Albert joined us yesterday to try to beat the lake record of 86 fish in a day. This has become a bit of a regular thing and with so many “off days” over the last 15 months we are happy to open up for them. They were here bright and early, very early in fact as they tucked into a full English breakfast at 6am and were fishing 30 minutes later. These boys fish hard, they really work at it and are happy to use and pay for lots of bait to keep the fish interested. Spare rods were available to hand so if there were any snap offs no fishing time would be lost and they were catching from the start. Siamese Carp, Chao Phraya Catfish, Arapaima, Striped Catfish, Walking Catfish, Amazon, Asian and Tiger Red Tail Catfish, Pacu and some Java Barb that were not even counted in the final tallies all graced the nets on a very busy day.

Was the lake record broken?…..NO, IT WAS SMASHED TO BITS with Robert Porter catching 112 fish for the day which works out to a fish every 6 1/2 minutes over 12 hours and when you take into account that many of the fish caught were several kilos in weight and take several minutes to play and land that really is non stop fishing.

Albert Greenaway who has previously come out on top in their “fish offs” could not match Rob’s catch rate and he settled for 65 fish in the session which is still remarkable and a couple of nice Arapaima in the mix for him to make up for taking the silver medal.

A total of 177 fish caught between them and guess what they’re back again in two weeks to see if they can better it, well done guys and well done to the guides Jack and Dee who were running around like headless chickens all day.

We’re back at it again from 8am Wednesday morning so if you fancy a work out with a difference give us a shout and join us for some…..”FUNFISHIN!”…….🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

 
The “Old Sea Dog” and our good friend Paul Whittall celebrated his birthday yesterday and what better way to do it than spend an afternoon by the lake. His target Arapaima eluded him but he was kept busy with lots of other fish from several species, we hope you “adagood’nmate”.
 
American angler Parker had already fished here twice in the last week and joined us for his final session before heading home to the States in a couple of days. He also had a good mixed bag with lots of fish including a nice chunky Chao Phraya catfish that gave hime a good battle and something to remember us by. Safe travels mate, we hope to see you again some day.
 
Rob and Albert are regulars here and we sometimes open especially for them on a Monday. They’re aim is beat the lake record which currently stands at 86 fish in a day and I’m glad to say that it looks like it’s gonna get smashed today….more about that tomorrow. With little pressure the catch rates are crazy now, the prices are slashed and there’s shelter from the sun and the rain so make the most of a bad situation and join us for some…..”FUNFISHIN!”……🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

 
It’s always nice when customers like our friends from the States return within a couple of days and we think they will try to squeeze one more session in before heading back home soon. They had the place to themselves and plenty of fish once again, thanks guys your custom is much appreciated during these challenging times.
 
There was some more bad news for bar owners the other day as they have been told that they will not be able to re open any time soon as the powers that be deem that is was these venues that caused the last wave…..really ???…. we all know who was to blame with 3,000 people gathering in a highly organised and pre planned event bringing infected people in from other parts of the country was what did the damage, a far cry from watching the football or having a game of pool with a few friends and a couple of cold ones and we hope for everyones sake that this will change soon. There is too much negativity out there with people posting doom and gloom and videos of constant rainy days which is just not the case in the monsoon season. We all have to try to survive this last part of the battle and be positive and putting people off coming here is not the way to do it.
 
The weekend is with us and one sure way for some to de stress is sitting by a lake and catching fish, give us a shout, book your slot and join us for some ….”FUNFISHIN!”……🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟😎
