Booked 7 nights on one of the cosy and quaint boats that has everything including clean towels daily.. bathroom with hot shower, good double bed, safe, tv, dvd, fan, A/C. We arrived to be greeted by the friendly owners and staff. I had booked 6 days fishing for my partners 60th birthday and wasn't sure if I'd get bored while... More

I don't understand how people write negative reviews about not catching enough and there guide was better and they had the best swims. It's FISHING. I fished for 2 days and can say the first day was awesome caught over 11 fish with the biggest at 90lb carp and 80lb Mekong catfish. I was on peg 6. Guess what not... More

Just had the best Birthday present a man could ever have. My wife daughter and myself just spent a week at Topcats on Koh Samui. Stayed on one of Shauns Traditinal Teak houseboats which was just fantastic. The boat was cleaned daily with ample clean bed linen and fresh towels. We ate all meals and drinks onsite most of which... More

From fishing the lake 3 years ago to fishing the lake last week I was very disappointed. With very high expectations from the last time! I had one fish in the first six hours, which I understand can happen in fishing but it was not expected. When asking Shaun was it fishing well? He responded "It always fishes well" &... More

The most anticipated activity of my trip which did not disappoint! IM not sure about the past 2-3 reviews but don't take them as how the place has changed. My fiance came with me to watch and the service from the ladies from the moment we arrived to the moment we left was amazing for both of us. They made... More

Unfortunately the place has gone from fantastic (3 years ago) to being very dissappointing. Food still good but the guides don't speak English so its very diddicult to communicate and they just sit there not helping or advising (I'm not a angler so felt completely lost). The owner is very awkward to talk to and its just not a nice... More
