Our Pal Jamie Davies
Our pal Jamie Davies is set to be leaving us soon so he rounded a few of the lads ‘n lasses for a farewell fishing afternoon.
Our guides were fishing for small live bait (java barb) in the morning using very light tackle, tiny hook and just a little pinch of ground bait on the hook and they did not expect the Alligator Gar (above) to take the bait !
After a full English breakfast the guys got fishing and it was pretty much non stop. Popeye (aka Keith Star) from Freedom bar in Rawai was tearing into them with loads of fish from several different species including a nice Arapaima. Unfortunately this one escaped the camera as he jumped out of the pen for his own freedom.
Dodge from White Hart (below) in Rawai had his second go at fishing and he too got amongst ’em as did everyone else. Jamie had a good few but spent more time buying everyone else drinks and consuming a good few himself.
Empty fridge this morning and a great afternoon in top company, thanks to everyone involved with 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!”…..??????????
