Dynamic Duo Were Back Again

Dynamic Duo Were Back Again

MORNING WORLD…..

 
The dynamic duo were back again yesterday. We have a special arrangement with them allowing them to fish when we are closed giving them the lake to themselves and a dedicated guide each. They have extra rods on tap so there is very little downtime and they go for it hammer and tong, making it more of a marathon than a relaxing days fishing. They arrived just before 6am and headed straight to their chosen favourite swims, the guides, Jack and Dee were already here and had things ready to go. Yours truly took round the mandatory “cuppa” to get things started and they were off. I was finishing off the refurbishment to our kitchens but every time I looked over either one or both of them was into a fish with Jack and Dee either in the water, netting fish or fetching more bait hence the lake of photos. This much work called for re fueling so they did stop for a full English breakfast but no sooner had they cleared their plates they were back at it.
 
Their previous visit a couple of weeks ago saw Rob smash the lake record taking 112 fish for the session and 177 fish between them and I had my doubts as to whether this could be bettered….I was wrong !… Rob finished his session with 125 fish including two Arapaima and some fair sized Carp and Albert stopped on exactly 100 fish for his days work, remarkable catch rates 225 fish between them!
 
So two very weary and thirsty anglers made their way back to the “office table” where we discussed the days action over a few well earned “cold ones” with Rob already hinting that he feels 150 fish for the day would be possible. Has he thrown the gauntlet down? We shall see. Its a real pleasure to have these guys fishing with us, our thanks to them for their continued support and well done to Jack and Dee, it’s not easy keeping up with these two, a well earned day off today but we’re back at it from 8am tomorrow morning.
 
Have you got what it takes to catch fish like this ? Come and have ago and enjoy 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!”…..??????????

Some Downtime

Some Downtime

Some Downtime

MORNING WORLD…..

Over the last few days yours truly has been busy refurbishing our kitchen and yesterday afternoon some downtime was called for so with things being so quiet I asked my mate “Flob” aka Dave Roberts if he fancied a little fishing. As it turned out I could not really be bothered and opted to watch Flob at work as he netted over forty fish in a little over two hours. The pacu were going mad for it taking the baits as they hit the water and while they are great fun and a guaranteed bend in the rod tactics were changed to target other species that did work with plenty of Red Tails coming in. As the day drew to a close the Arapaima were on the prowl, showing themselves, teasing and eating just about everything apart for the hooked offerings !…. that’s fishing for ya.

While things are far from ideal now I have to pinch myself from time to time and remind myself how lucky I am watching the sky take on beautiful colours as the sun goes down, sitting with good friends, a few nibbles and a couple of cold ones in our little bit of paradise…..”FUNFISHIN!”….🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠😎

Owen from The Soi Dog Foundation

MORNING WORLD…..

English angler Owen took a little time out from his work at “The Soi Dog Foundation” to celebrate his birthday and along with his American pal Jim, the pair had a busy day’s fishing with lots of fish from several species. Small but perfectly formed Arapaima each as well as Siamese Carp, Walking Cats, Amazon, Asian and Tiger Red Tail Cats and loads of pacu kept the rods bent throughout the day, well done lads, we hope you enjoyed it.

Some restrictions including alcohol sales in “restaurants” were eased a few days ago and while this has been great news for many and we wish all of these venues the best of luck after months of struggles, it has resulted in us having an even quieter week than usual so if you fancy taking advantage of the reduced prices, lots of very hungry fish with very high catch rates we would love to see you for some ….”FUNFISHIN!”….🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎

MORNING WORLD…..

A very nearly full to capacity lake (water, not customers, unfortunately) with the new pump system working wonders at Chalong Fishing Park. A few weeks and some expert advice from my mate Woodsy with very little money involved for parts has made all the difference. We’re still losing a bit more water than we would like and the plan to rectify this has had to be put on hold for the time being but we’re only halfway through the rainy season and the big stuff is yet to come so all good.

Some good news yesterday with restaurants now being allowed to serve alcohol and with any luck, the bars will be able to follow suit soon. Ex-pats that do not have work permits will be able to get vaccinated from Friday and I get my second jab tomorrow as we near the 1st of July when Phuket starts what will be a gradual but very welcome reopening to tourists once again, it really can’t come soon enough for many businesses but we still need to be cautious and take our time.

It was a very early start for me this morning as I head back into the kitchen to finish the tiling, decorating and general improvements….now I remember why I stopped doing it for a living!

We’re back at it again from 8am tomorrow morning, the catch rates are high and the fishing rates are low, give us a shout and join us for some……..”FUNFISHIN!”…..🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠

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!”…..🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠😎
