A bit of a break in the weather

GM12
A bit of a break in the weather meant a few more customers from different parts of the globe fishing various packages and all getting well among the fish. Once again plenty of Siamese Carp, Amazon and Asian Red Tail Catfish, Pacu, Striped catfish and Chao Phraya Catfish all making a show. Yours truly spent much of the day in the water looking after the water Hyacinth beds some of which were in nets which were removed yesterday. Loads of little “glass shrimp” much to Jen’s approval and a few baby Asian Red Tail Cats which is great news and a good indication that the water quality is where we want it.
One or two names in the book for today but still lots of availability and the forecast ain’t bad so give us a shout, wet a line and join us for some……….”FUNFISHIN!”……….🎣🎣🎣🐠🐠🐠🐟🐟🐟😎😎😎

When the fish are biting nothing else matters!

When the Fish are biting
A quiet Saturday with the weather at this time of year working against us, when its raining they don’t want to get wet and when its sunny they run for the beach or the pool and who could blame them ? That said the rain does not deter the fish and sometimes its more comfortable being a little damp than being too hot.
We did welcome a Danish Dad’nLad duo who asked us what the chances of catching were when they arrived in the morning. I smiled, told them not to worry and they would catch lots, perhaps the looks on their faces showed a little doubt but that soon changed as they “bagged up” on Siamese Carp, Striped Catfish, Pacu, Red Tails, a bonus Chao Phraya Catfish and hooked but lost Arapaima. Very happy with their days work they left beaming and wowing to return.
We also had a couple of our season ticket customers join us in the afternoon and our pal Tim Darton was once again using his fly rod. Our mutual friend Neil got wind of this and as our planned sea fishing trip aboard “Fish Eagle” was blown off he bought his fly tying kit along, something he says he has not opened for near on 40 years. They went through the goodies and after several fly’s were tried the Red Tail Cats could not resist them, mission accomplished !
Our mate Paul came along with better half Ann and Daughter Elly who is Jazzy’s best fried at school, the pair of them were straight in the pool before deciding to catch some Java Barb, which they both succeeded in doing so jazzy had her first pupil and Elly caught her first fish, lovely and very nice afternoon around “the office” with a few cold ones in great company, compensation for the lack of customers.
The staff and the fish had a rest day yesterday but we are all back at it again from 8.30 this morning. There is a little wet stuff forecast for the coming week but there is shelter all around the lake and the fish really don’t care so if the beach or the pool are not that appealing and you can brave a little rain why not get involved, you won’t be disappointed with probably the nearest thing you will get to a guaranteed catch so come and join us for some………”FUNFISHIN!”……….🎣🎣🎣🐠🐠🐠🐟🐟🐟😎😎😎

MORNING WORLD…..

 
Fairly busy again and a bit of a shock to the system having some customers, long may it last!
 
I’ve been friends with Mick and Sandra for many years over here, diving and frquenting the same watering holes in Karon, great to see them back again, Mick spent the day with us and lots of fish for him.
 
A nice brace of chao Phraya Catfish along with several other fish from different species for another repeat customer who has been absent for the last couple of years.
 
Mike’s first fish of the day was an Arapaima which he unfortunately lost but he also went on to catch plenty of other fish as did carl and his lad on a half day afternoon session.
 
It’s been nice to have a buzz around the place and as we are bsuier than before we are still operating with less staff than normal (no from lack of trying) so we ask customers to PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE COMING.
 
We’re open every day up to Christmas Day and then the same up to New Years Day. Why not give us a shout, book your slot and enjoy some …….”FESTIVEFUNFISHIN!”……….🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟😎🎅🎅🎅

One New Face Yesterday

One New Face Yesterday

MORNING WORLD…..

 
One new face yesterday with the others being repeat customers and very nice to see them all it was too.
 
A family from Malaysia returned after a 3 year absence. The last time was all about Dad fishing but now the boys have grown up it was time for Dad to step aside and let them get on with it which they did very well with loads of fish from the start on a short morning session. Lovely family and great to see them again.
 
Nick from England was recommended us by a customer from a few days ago so he joined us for the day, lots of fish for him from several species catching steadily throughout the day.
 
Bob and Steve are on a short break from Krabi, both very experienced anglers at some of the top venues over here so we are chuffed that they chose to join us here and nice to see them both again.
 
Season ticket holders Dorothy and Tim were here for their weekly Thursday stint along with our pal Paul, all catching well with the last couple of hours producing loads of nice fish.
 
While there seems to be lots of bad news around things are slowly picking up here and we hope that the issues around the world don’t have to much of an impact. Over the holidays we will be open every day apart from Christmas Day 25th and New years Day 1st. Please contact us before coming and join us for some………”FESTIVEFUNFISHIN!”………🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🐟🎣🎅🎅😎

DEALS

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!”…..??????????
