The Resort
This month has been as busy as ever with the lake full for fishing every day. And the Resturant must be hitting the spot now as there are bookings everyday.
Thanks to all our customers for your support. If your party is for six or more please book in advance or you may have to wait for your food!
The Fishing
The lake has been fishing very well this month, we thought that with so many people here over the last couple months things might slow a little! No sign of that at present.
Anne & Tim:
We had the pleasure to welcome a loverly couple for 10 days at TopCats that was Anne & Tim who made their first trip to Thailand. They arrived late and went to bed for a good nights sleep getting ready for the action over the holiday. Tim is a postman in the UK so early starts were no problem for him and started the day with a swim in our pool followed by a large breakfast then down to the lake for the day. He had our man Yut taking care of him and was making sure the fish did not pull him into the lake. Yut also gave him a massage after each catch. The fish he was after was a Redtail catfish and he had to wait for that one but caught some nice fish before the target fish. See you next year.
Richard:
Richard came for two weeks to try his luck on our lake and was not disappointed! He was keen to hook the Arapaima and other species. The first week was good then the second he was on fire as the large carp started to bite and he and Tim had double hits several times with hard fighting fish.
Tim & Gill:
Tim and Gill came over to Thailand for a relaxing stress free holiday celebrating Tim,s birthday & also their wedding anniversary. Tim owns a fishing tackle shop in the UK and bought me over some pop up boilies (which are not sold in Thailand!) to use on our lake here, thank you for that.
He started off slow and built up speed as their days went by too quickly. He caught varied species and one was a beautiful Tiger catfish. Hope to see you back next year when the fish may have put on a few pounds!
Simon:
Simon is out traveling around and booked a three night stay with us not knowing what to expect. He was pleasantly surprised with a fantastic catch card. He even managed to land two Alligator Gar fish with the help of our guides. The Siamese Carp he caught was one of the most beautiful fish we have seen light colour with red tail tip, check out the picture. Hope to see you back soon.
Johan:
The man from Holland was having a ball on holiday recharging his batteries and catching some fish to boot. He fancied number one swim where the Arapaima hides out and set up for a few days’s waiting for a bite. Took all of 15 minutes before he was hooked into something rather large and yes it was an Arapaima, not the largest but a very strong fish that put up quite a fight. After that he needed some food ready for the next battle. In all Yohan was here for over one week and caught Mekong catfish, Siamese Carp, Alligator Gar and several of his target fish the Arapaima Gigas. Hope to see you later this year for a week or two Shaun.
