The “Old Sea Dog”
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!”……🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟🎣🐠🐟😎

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!”…..??????????
