“Disgraceful prices!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is Thailand where fishing costs under £5 in most places. It's ludicrously expensive to fish here. I recommend you do other things and fish in Bangkok. Fish here are tiny by Thai standards.

“If you like fishing - Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Took the family there from 1100 - 1630 25/9/13. Wasn't sure if wife and teenage girls would like it, but they were quickly reeling in very good sized fish and had a great time. Fishing was fantastic - gear was OK nothing flash. Staff were very helpful. There are some very big fish in the pond waiting to be caught. Overall between 4 of us we landed 25 and lost another 15 or so during the day.

If there is more than one of you travelling to this place - I suggest negotiating a price with the local taxis and just paying the entry fee upon arrival.

I will definitely go back when next in Phuket.

“Great Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

If you love your fishing, you got to go to this place. Its very reasonably priced and you can fish there all day. You will have a great time reeling in a variety of 10 to 20kg fish and the guides who do the baiting for you are awesome. We had a bloke called "Jung" and we had a ball with him. Its a relaxing day out, cold beers when you want them and a not too bad menu as well.

“Unforgettable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This is simply an exciting and unforgettable experience. Even to those seasoned pro-fishers (depending on where you come from), they commented that it is very very worthwhile to spend the day and have a fight with the monsters.

We were picked up on time in a hotel in Patong and were whisked away to the pond in just under 30mins. Lunch was also provided freshly cooked from the kitchen. NO fish from the catch of course.

From there, it was straight into the action non-stop. There were in total 3 of us, and from 9am till 4pm, we netted a total of 30+ fishes consisting of over 7 different species.

Initially, I was sniggering and commenting that this is not even fishing as there was a helper on hand to help set bait and cast rod. All we had to do was sit back and wait for the bite. Well, it did bite and very soon I realized why we need not set and cast bait. Simply because we need to conserve as much energy as we had to fight the beast :)

Yep, so this is highly recommended if you are bored with doing nothing in Phuket.

“Great fun day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Just spent the day at the park and had a great time. Nice and relaxing with friendly staff. All eager to help you catch a fish and ready for a laugh. Food was good. Toilet area isnt great but all in all I would recommend it. Especially if you have kids.
