Fishing for Siamese Carp in Bungsamran

Recommended Posts

Hi I have been going after the Siamese carp in Bungsamran for the past few trips with no result and really kind of sad and hope some of the expert here give me some tips and advice so that my incoming trip will be fruitful and able to full fill my dream.... Many Thanks

My last few trip I'm 2 rods, one for Mekong (floating with Rum without mixture) and sinking with rum same without mixture at all at the side of the bungalow.

So is there any mistake in the presenting or should I consider adding some special mixture???

Please advise me on this I really hope to

First obvious mistake is fishing for Mekongs on a float whilst trying to keep a swim close in quiet for carp to move in. Doesn't work to well.

The rod which is used for Siamese is place at the far end of the bungalow and rod for Mekong will be at the front cast out far.

how about the bait?

Even so if your dedicated to catching a carp your odds of success will increase if your not moving around on the deck playing fish. Baiting up methods, include using very wet lum mix, and or "flicking" in small pellets of harder mix to make a distinct "plonk" sound in the water (like the noise a pea would make if you flicked it into the water). Lum should be mixed in such a way as the ball stays on for 40 minutes or so.

So how about those mixture and is there any special spot in the lake which is more productive of catching Siamese carp?

If you are paying the now crazy tourist price for fishing BSR the last thing you want to be doing is fishing for Cahor, it's more than likely you will not catch one so it's a waste of big money, but good luck in your quest!!

Hi,

If u want to catch Siam Carp u have to fish overnight from the totaly left Bungalow oposite from the pear where the tourist fishing all day :-) the cap will take a min 30mm Black Halibut Pellet with self hook system on the hair! U need min 3,75lb rod and a line min 0,40mm if u can hook up u have to fight hard ;-)

I come on there in November for catch this huge Monster fish ;-) And than on IT LAKE MONSTER for catch Arapaima and later my Special BIG GAME

Greats from Austria

Wow you can catch Cahor as easy as that, good luck to anyone that takes this advice, pays 2000฿ per rod and catches nothing!!

Well no, many times you go fishing and you will not catch any Cahor, I have been many times and caught nothing other than Sawai etc, it's like everything you have to persevere!

You have to be lucky mate. It is a numbers game. As simple as that. Try again and again. Eventually you'll probably get one. Never found a use for hair rigs myself. These fish have bucket mouths. The floating J hook with styrofoam balls helping it to waft into the fish's mouth is what you need. As they feed, opening their mouths it creates a massive negative pressure of water. There's nothing delicate about it. Same with the catfish. These fish are huge, they have very few natural predators so they are bold.

Very short hook length, about width of 3 fingers on a feeder will do it. A nice particle stlye of bait, a massive lam ball, flavored with pandan. The buttermilk also works well. Location is the key though. Close to the feet of the bungalows seems good.
