Top Catfishing in Thailand.

Here on holiday, brought some light tackle as I usually fish for smaller stuff, but my wife suggested we tried Bungsanram, as she knew a big cat was on my bucket list! Had been to... read more

We had a great time there, the guide was nice and knew what he was doing. The fish were big and hard to catch but within 5 hours we caught about 7 fish. Unfortunately your are not allowed to eat the fish.

I'm go fishing regularly and love catching alligator gar in the Trinity River in Texas. These Mekong catfish fight harder than those alligator gar! My wife and I caught all we could handle in a few short hours. Lost way more fish than we caught, but just two fish will wear you out for the day :) This is a... More

Here on holiday, brought some light tackle as I usually fish for smaller stuff, but my wife suggested we tried Bungsanram, as she knew a big cat was on my bucket list! Had been to Sekunar Fishing day before and landed 3 Sawai up to 10kg, so needed to beat that. Was NOT disappointed! We hired a rod, bought license... More

The place was moderately expensive and miles from Bangkok city.It was beastly hot and the fishing was strenuous as the lake is alive with Mekong catfish.However there are few other species and no red tailed catfish.I prefer Jurassic Mountain in Cha Am

We went by taxi to the Bungsamran fishing park. Two teenagers truly enjoyed themselves for the day. We hired a guide and he teach us how to bait the hook. We caught about seven fishes and a few got away. Lunch at the place was local and authentic. We also tried the catfish dish, like fried fish floss. Quite good.... More

We got a bungalow with a guide that cost $5100 THB. All in all had a good experience it would have been great if our guide... More

Excellent days fishing. I didn't book first, just arrived at 2pm and was greeted by a friendly Thai man with excellent English (Kartun) who explained everything to us. We got a resort ABC(air-con) for 8 hours but only used it for 2 hours after fishing when we got a massage. My guide was great, very friendly also. Constant hookups the... More

Arrived at the fishing park at about 9 am after an hours drive from Lumpini area of BKK. Hired the package (recommended for first timers and beginner fisherman) that included all equipment, room hire (you'll only need the fan room) and a fishing guide for the day. Provided you can last the full 8 hours in the heat and humidity,... More
