Weekly Update 9th August 2019
MORNING WORLD….. our weekly update 9th August 2019.
We at Chalong Fishing Park are very happy to say that we are now back to a full team of staff with the return of “Tack” and also the arrival of “Maem’ who will be helping Jen out.
There has been plenty of fish gracing the nets over the last week, The Pacu are still on a feeding frenzy, we have a lot of small ones but some good-sized lumps are coming out as well. The Tiger Red Tails are also showing in more numbers – always a nice catch.
Londoners Spencer Tiddy and his son Sam joined us for a full the day. Spencer had a bucket list of Amazon Red Tail, Mekong Catfish and Arapaima. The first two on the list were easily achieved while Sam got amongst some nice Siamese Carp. The “Arry’s” just kept on coming up in front of them but unfortunately, that’s where they stayed. Lots of fish between them though and next time for the “Arry”!
Chinese angler Zhouqiao Wu joined us three time this week as well as other repeat customers, we must be doing something right!
We have noticed more fish are coming out later in the day at the moment – is it luck or is it the fact that over a period of time with accurate casting a swim gets built up? The latter I feel but you just never know when they’re gonna turn on….
It’s funny how different species will turn on for no apparent reason and for that matter turn off as well! The Chinese Big Head Carp are showing a lot more at the moment with our pal and Season Ticket holder Richard Velentine taking two yesterday (See the slider below) along with several other fish and other customers also getting on them.
The Mekong cats are still giving customers a work out as customers from England and Australia found out the other day with most of the other usual species playing ball at the moment and long may it last.
Tim and his young son Lucas have spent a couple of days with us this week. Lucas getting his first-ever fish and Dad pulling in some good-sized lumps. Lucas found a playmate on their second day as Aussie angler Zach bought his family down for the day which meant that Tim could fish on a little longer safe in the knowledge that his lad wasn’t getting bored. Another Aussie family joined us for a short afternoon session and with a little help from our guides, they got some nice fish and left with smiles on their faces. Too many names to mention but a mix of old and new customers.
Always good to see the kids enjoying themselves and a big shout out to our guides who always try to make sure the young ones get on the fish.
Busy for us but thoroughly enjoyable meeting some great people and some “FUN FISHIN!”…….???????????
