One day tour: For Anglers, For Family, For Children, For Amateurs, For Beginners

Attention all anglers !!!!! Exotic Fishing Thailand invites you to try something different on your next vacation in Phuket. Just a one-hour drive from Phuket airport can take you to a one of a kind fishing destination. On your day out, you will be fishing from your own private lakeside hut. The views of the surrounding mountains are beyond spectacular and the fishing needs to be seen to be believed. At 10 acres/4 hectare the lake is one of the largest fisheries in Thailand. With Exotic Fishing Thailand, the list of your potential targets is so big that it’s hardly possible to mention all 60+ species at once. You will be going after Arapaima, Siamese Carp, Giant Mekong Catfish, Alligator Gar, Chao Phraya Catfish, Wallagoo Leeri, and many more. You will fish from one of 16 fishing locations around the lake Your guides will help you throughout the adventure landing the fish, helping with photos, changing leaders, and bait. This is a strictly catch and release fishery where the survival of the fish is paramount. Get ready to get wet as you join your catch in the water for a photograph! All trips come with two rods, tackle, and a reasonable supply of bait, as well a taxi ride back anywhere in Phuket Krabi or Khao Lak. A lakeside food and drinks service with both Thai and international food will be available at reasonable prices. Exotic Fishing offers a pickup service from Phuket and areas in the vicinity so all you need to think about is if you’re ready to wrestle with a freshwater monster fish!

What a truly fantastic experience we had at Exotic Fishing Thailand! Mike was an outstanding host, we had great guides and staff, experienced scenery that is out of this world, stayed in new, spacious and modern accommodation, had great food - and then fishing was the highlight!! Many species, big fish, and a 220lb Arapaima to top things off :) We would highly recommend Exotic Fishing Thailand to anyone.
