Bungsamran Fishing Park worth a visit?

If you live in Thailand and get Thai wages you pay 400. If you are on holiday in Thailand and you earn 4/5 times what Thais earn is 2000 baht so much of a hardship?? Whenever i have fished here i

've always caught 10-15 fish, the average size is around 28kg. These are huge fish and you'll get nothing like this in the UK where i am from. Enjoy it for what it is, good comfortable facilities with plenty of staff to bring you food and cold beer when you want it and a really good chance to catch a fish over 100lbs.

It's absolutely worth a visit if as a tourist you do not mind paying in excess of 2000฿ for the day, as an ex pat it's a must visit with the price at 400฿ it's a very tiring day when you are catching many Mekong around the 10/20kg mark with the real possibility of a fish well over that, I had a couple of days there, half way through the second day I was completely shattered, one of the best fishing experiences on the planet!!

Here are a few pics of Bungsamran. The small fish was pretty standard. I would say most are around the 20k + with some whoppers. My big fish was 47k and I saw one landed that weighed in at 79K.

The truth is,If you are a real fisherman ( angler ) NO not worth the visit. That is as far as the fishing is concerned. The way the fish are treated is disgraceful, This kind of fishing would not be

tolerated in Europe And 100% not in Russia.

It has nothing to do with skill.

The tackle shop is outstanding,the best selection I have seen other than Farlows on Pall Mall.London.

Find a lake, cram it full of Mekong catfish and Siamese carp. Build lots of huts, sell lots of beer and food, get a local Thai to help because your not strong enough to put bait on or reel it in on your sea rodand 60lb line etc, have loads of people running around jumping and shouting. Sounds like a fishing expedition out of a Salvador Dali painting a bit like shooting fish in a barrel, couldn't think of anywhere worse!.

The worst,and most unsporting fishery I have ever visited. It really puts our sport down. 60lb line etc and tossers that have no idea about angling.

Big fish and lots of beer, sounds great to me!

Its great fun been there many times.. I do the casting myself got my own rod and real. The lines usually are not more as 50lb (if used mono) But you need strong line as else the fish will break it on the pier.

As for the fish in a barrel.. sure if your there on a good day.. but there are days even the guides have trouble catching fish. I have taken friends there often and loaned them rods.

You do the casting yourself Well Well ( is that not the idea and skill you need to fish?? 50 lb line sea fishing kit!! You need a guide to show you a 3

acre lake with wooden walk ways

Look cocker do not embarass yourself. The place is a disgace and embarassment to the sport fishing community Cruel

Instead of complaining why don't you do something about the place, make the effort to back up your complaints, try and get the place shut down for cruelty!!

Has anyone else noticed that queries about good, local, wild fishing spots usually don't get many favorable recommendations from regular folks that have actually lived here a while?

They get suggestions from guys that are coming next month (and read a really neat website) and wonder whether to bring their fly rod.

They may get vague locations from the guys who put together those real neat websites and who stand to make some cash by guiding them to the specific spots.

But they don't get much encouragement from long timers. Mostly, the long timers recommend their favorite fishing parks, with some caveats about the other venues they don't recommend. They don't seem so keen on wild fishing.

I can't help but wonder if the long timers may know something based on years of looking for wild fish, lots of miles driven (and paddled), lots of neat websites and maps, and lots of disappointment when they got there...

Hi nice to meet you, Sorry I get very angry with the Buggersamran Fishing .

It seems very difficult to find any Fly fishing here pilot 111 forget it,it woud drive you mad. I have tried in a few klongs and sure it works, The Thais are into

spinning so that is a good,as these kind of fish will take a Fly or lure.

If you hear of anything please post tight lines

Hi Thanks for your advice, not really my kind of thing. Sorry but I disagree with this kind of fishing,as I was bought up to respect the animal/fish, that we are hunting or trying to catch.These fisheries in Thailand are just money making machines nothing else. And I deplore the kind of person that can get fun out

of causing so much stress and pain to a fish that has no chance,and is caught time an time again. I come from England but the strongest legislation is in

Germany,as you must pass a test to see if you understand the fair and natrual rules ( Die Fischerie Prufung ) without this you cannot fish period.
