“THE MIGHTY MEKONG CATFISH.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Was having lunch at lemongrass and saw this shop directly beside. Went in to take a look at their big game fishing brochure. Price was reasonable. Decided to go for it and the experience was amazing. A very big thank you to our guides, meaw and Mr.F for this unforgettable experience. The lunch provided was delicious and the other portions great. Plenty of shaded area and chairs to get comfortable. A must go for everyone, I'll definitely be back again to have some fun with the mighty mekong catfish.

Cheers
Fat, Yong and Peng

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I bought an afternoon trip to go fishing one hot day in Chiang Mai. Read other places that these cat fish gets even more active when the weather is hot. Where i come from it is hard to imagine good weather and loads of fish at the same time. But no that´s how it works here. My trip started at 1 p.m. and soon I was pulling fish out of the water. First one 9 kg. A small one I was told. Geez! At 3.30 i pulled up a 35 kg. holy smoke what a monster. After a total of 4 hours i had caught more than a 100 kg of fish. Probably more than i caught my whole life so far.

Don´t expect great nature, it is more like a fake lake but as soon as the fish shows up you forget all about.

“Great day of fishing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Ok so I'll start by saying I have visited 7 different fishing parks in phuket, koh samui, Bangkok and now this one in Chiang mai.

This park stood out the most because the best price only 1900 baht, the fishing guides actually show you how to cast and hook the fish (most other parks basically just handyou the rod to pull the fish in). The fishing guides speak english very well and are hilarious, beer is cheap lunch is included what more can you want! If your after Mekong catfish than look no further nicest fishing park with plenty of shade and action all day long.

Cheers boys for a great day

“Brilliant Day of Fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I had an absolute blast here. The instructor showed us the basics of fishing and helped us with tips along the way. I got a few absolute monsters, the biggest being 35kgs! I choose only the afternoon, and I'm glad I did as it was very hot and I was able to catch about 10 fish in my few hours there. Another perk of this trip was the lake is very close to a Car DYNO and auto shop, which had a Lamborghini, Nissan GTR, and many other modded vehicles. I was able to sit and watch and here multiple cars being tested on the DYNO, and for a car enthusiast it was an amazing experience listening to the Lambo.
