After reading a lot about Bung Sam Ran I decided to give it a go as I was going through Bangkok now I have done a lot of fishing in my time including Big Game Fishing on my Game Boat.
never in my life have I seen so many large fish in one area!
the day started at about 6.30am I was picked up from my hotel and taken to Bung Sam Ran from the moment I walked in the door I could se the lake and it was shocking!t the size of these fish were amazing.
As I walked to our Bungalow it was hard to take my eyes off the lake as there seemed to be a constantly fish breaking the surface and I dont mean little fish!
the next shock was when I walked into my Bungalow I was meet by the smell of fresh coffee, it was a different style of fishing, the set up was more than just a standard fishing bungalow, Kiwi Fishing Bangkok had set it up for comfort, with everything you need to relax and enjoy the day, these guys had if all, even down to the tea and coffee ohhh and the Hammock!
after looking at the rods and reels I had a feeling that we were in for some great fishing, with Shimano Reels and Rods, also nearly all of there gear was custom modifided to fish these monsters.
well as the first bait hit the water (about 10 seconds after walking in) it was not even in the water 10 seconds and the fishing was on! the first fish of the day was a 12kg Giant Siamese Carp! I was in heaven! I proceeded to land Giant Mekong Catfish one after the other, the pace just didnt stop!
I had to call a break for lunch as I was starting to fade, I was in for my next shock of the day....... lunch.
the table setting was stunning, with the table set for one and the delights of the Thai food supplied by Bung Sam Ran it was heaven for sure, I have never been fishing and had a meal like this, most of the time it was takeways from a box or a sandwich that the wife had made, I have to give Kiwi Fishing Bangkok 10 out of 10 for the service and style.
I had done my research, looking at different companies to go with and I was very happy with my choice.
I did notice some of the other companies fishing and to tell the truth not one of them had anything close to these guys, one of the nicest things was the refresher towels, just a simple thing but what a difference it made to the day, Thailand is HOT so to have nice cold towels on hand was another slice of heaven.
back to the fishing, I lost count of the amout of fish I landed, but I did land my Personal Best of 35.05kg Giant Mekong Delta Catfish, man what a fight!
as for weighing the fish Kiwi Fishing Bangkok has a top of the line set of Digatal Scales that are rated up to 300KG!!! Kiwi custom designed and built these himself, I have only ever seen this type of thing on the discovery channel, they were built for the saftery of the fish and it looks like no expence was spared in building it.
to sum it all up I had a great day and landed to many fish I went back to my hotel needing a good nights sleep!
I would recomend fishing with this company, I have not fished with the other companies so I cant give a first hand opinion on what they are like, but what I did see made me happy that I fished with Kiwi, I will give there company credit and say that they do go fishing in style and luxury!
