My wife and I have been living overseas and the fishing hasn't been that great. We decided we needed to scratch that itch and it was well worth it. Yes, it is a stocked pond but the action from catching these giant catfish was well worth it. I definitely highly recommend it. We did the half day and are arms and back were exhausted.

What can I say, I love fishing! The chance to catch a dozen or more big Mekong catfish was too good to pass up. Guide Mio picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the Bosang fishing lake. It's an artificial lake stocked with a lot of hungry fish. Hundreds were gulping air at the surface when we got there about 9:00 AM. I fished, my wife took pictures. My first fish hit about 5 minutes in and from then on the action never really stopped. The provided tackle was spinning rods with good sized reels, a little worse for wear but more than adequate for the job. Terminal gear was a swivel above a weight cage and a short-shanked hook on a 10" leader. Mio wadded bread mixed with other ingredients into the cage and put more on the hook. You cast out and let the bait sit on the bottom with the reel drag set wide open. Fish pick up the bait and run with it. Striking involves tightening the drag before lifting the rod to set the hook. Most hookups were solid but the occasional fish did get off. I got about 20 fish with 8 or so in the 50-60 lb range. Those put up strong fights with good runs interspersed with bulldog pulls. I was worn out by the end of the day! The lake is pleasant and there are sun shelters with benches. We didn't use the benches much because we were too busy playing fish but the shade was welcomed. I had a blast. I'd do it again in a minute. But first my sore arms need to rest. Mio was a great guide. Helpful, funny, and very knowledgeable. He made sure dietary requirements were met at lunch. Very pleased with the guide service.

Got picked up at 8.30, fishing by 9.30. Caught around 20 Mekong cat fish, most over 20kg. Lunch was good not great. Overall a great days fishing, the only negative, if you can call it a negative, is all the fish are the same and it gets a bit mundane after a while. That said I’d definitely go again.

We did a half day which was more than enough time and did on shore fishing. We had Ef as our guide and he was a lot of fun and very efficient. I would highly recommend Big game adventure tour.
