First time I have ever done any fishing like this and I loved every minute of it.Fished for 6 hours from 2pm to 8pm and caught 5 catfish ranging from 40 to 120lb. The biggest was just as I was about to leave so I would recommend this time slot if you are only doing the six hours, also it... More

This is my fourth visit and it yet again excelled my expectation. The fish just get bigger and the sheer exertion of bringing them in is amazing. Just as well the tackle is top quality and the fishing guide gives as much or as little help as you require. The salt water pool is an added bonus and the food... More

Husband and I enjoyed 4 hours of fishing. Both were lucky enough to catch an 80 pound Siamese carp each. Was a thrill to catch (and release). We also caught 2 other large fish. Fishing guides were excellent. Fish are treated with the the greatest of care.

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
