Mekong Giant Catfish
These pics show some of the Mekong Giant Catfish caught towards the end of last high season. We hardly see these from when the rains start until around now as the monsoon winds start to turn and the rainy season draws to an end. If the last 3 years are anything to go by, when they turn back on, they go barmy and several of these crazy hard fighting fish are a real possibility in a day and believe me its knackering! We have a large head of these fish ranging from around 10kg to an estimated 50 kg and the first person to catch one of these brutes and get in the relatively cold water for the photo will get another session free of charge ?.
The last of the pics shows just what a good monsoon season we have had this year with the main lake full to the brim and overflowing nicely into the new lake. Lots of work and money behind the scenes has gone into the new lake and more hurdles than you can shake a stick at but it looks like we are finally getting there, we just pray things change for the better and we will still be here so our customers and us can enjoy the improvements. Still lots to do and a good way off yet before things are completed but onwards and upwards, we’re determined and will do everything we can for our customers to carry on enjoying more……”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!”…..??????????
