Best Fishing Park ?

Recommended Posts

Staying in Pattaya and Bangkok. I was thinking of going to castaway in Pattaya but not sure yet. Also when in Bangkok I was thinking Bungsamran as I've heard great reviews and huge fish but it's pretty expensive also another spot I was looking at was Jurassic mountain park in petchaturi, can anyone recommend this place ? It's nearly same distance as it is to bungsamran. Please any recommendations would be great. It's my first visit to Thailand

Ummm I hate to burst your bubble but Bungsamran, even at the farang price, is still cheaper than Jurassic or Gillhams. There are also differences with bait methods and presentation although neither place allows you to bring outside bait (you must buy the bait at the venue). 

 

Jurassic doesnt allow outsiders to bring their own rods and rigs without prior permission, but at Bungsamran you can bring almost any rig you want as long as youre targeting Catfish and Carp species (predatory species are a different story there). The Arapaima arent included in the initial price at BSR, thats a 20,000 baht story right there. 

 

I think Jurassic alligns itself with some UK Carp fishing association or something like that

You cannot compare Jurassic with Bungsamran, the venue is 10 times nicer and far more species. I must admit that in general you might catch more in Bungsamran. But I would go to Jurassic every time over Bungsamran. Probably because i done bungsamran so many times already and it kinda gets boring that there is only 1 way to fish that works.

I have not been to Pattaya since 2008 so I'm not up to speed on the two quite decent fishing parks there. One was soi 16, I think, Jontiem. The other was just outside Pattaya on the through road. Both held common carp and the usual catfish species. The wife landed a mekong at 44kg and I caught a common of about 6kg.

 

My best from Bansumran is 34kg, but I lost a mekong, estimated to be in the order of 100/120kg at the net. That was back in 2007. Never caught a carp there. I did hear that Bansumran lost quite a few fish a couple of years back.

 

Nong Khai has a good fishery for commons. The catfish size is ordinary.
