Fishing In Bangkok

Recommended Posts

Not long returned from Thailand thought people might be interested in fishing lake on outskirts of bangkok called bung san. Costs about 2500 Baht including rods, bait and guide who mixes bait and lands fish. We had a lodge for the day which had fridge, TV etc. Shop on site to stock fridge with food and beer. We caught a dozen mekong catfish over 30lb with the largest being 65lb. Take thai girl to do deal for best price.

See picture.

looks nice. Is this a 'fishing Pond' with stocked fish or natural environment(river, lake)?

Does look nice. I go fishing with a couple of Thai lads to a stocked man made lake. They have catfish in their like the one above. We paid about 200 baht to fish and then you pay per fish you catch. That is only if you want to take them home to eat.

Not sure how to go about fishing on the natural lakes or rivers. Would you need a permit or something?

Is it you or the guide that is fishing?

 

I went to a place like that once, evry time I set the clutch on my reel, the bloody guide readjusted it, every time I caught a fish, the guide tried to grab the rod. When I landed the first fish, (20 KG catfish) the little fucker killed it and told me I owed 500 Baht.

 

Worse days fishing I ever had.

Stocked lake with variety of fish. Last count they held 8 world records. Good fun but very tiring each fish takes about 20 mins to half hour plus to land. Thais do little dance on staging when fish are close to stop them tangling in posts etc. I have caught salmon in england and these mekong catfish make them look like pussies.

Lake is a stocked lake with catch and release. Our guide was a Mr boomsong who was areally nice guy who spoke some english. The bait we used was orange ball sized some kind of meal with a attractor added which was quite hard to get out to the middle of the lake. Thats where Mr Boomsong came in with casting our bait to the centre of the lake. Strike and retrieve was all yours. However at end of day with a couple of 45 pounders one sixty five pounder and 10 over 30 pounds between three of us your back aches and we gave up early. We gave our guide food and beer during the day as the norm and he really looked after us picking up a tip at the end.

Give it a go.

We didnt have permit for stocked lake. However fished natural lake up North and was nowhere near as good. Loads of insects biting the crap out of us and Lakes far to big . Gave up after three hours.

Mekong catfish are an endangered species. In Thailand it is illegal to catch wild fish in their natural environment.

thanks, i did not know Mekong catfish are an endangered species.

 

When you say 'In Thailand it is illegal to catch wild fish in their natural environment' do you mean endangered species or all fish?

Specifically Mekong catfish, possibly other endangered species as well.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
