What a Beautiful One
What a beautiful one it is too, never get bored of this and we hope we will be around to witness many more.
Yesterday yours truly set up a very light waggler rod in attempt to catch some of the Giant Gourami (that are not that giant yet) and move them to the new lake. I tried just about every bait that you could think of that would not be so attractive to the predators including tiny bits of apple, sweetcorn, banana and bread punch and while I did manage to lure a few Gourami out the Amazon and Tiger Red Tail cats were taking anything put near them at any depth, not what I was after but great sport.
Don’t forget that this Saturday we are having a bit of a bash for Loy Krathong that this year also falls on Halloween. The bar will be open all day as usual with food and live music laid on in the evening, everyone is welcome and it will help us cater if we can get some idea of numbers and if anyone fancies some great sport with silly rates for silly times come 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!”…..??????????
