In recent years Thailand has become well known as a first rate fishing destination thanks mostly to its numerous well-stocked boarded lakes. These lakes are packed to the gills with giant fish including Mekong Catfish, Siamese Carp and huge Arapaima and all have great facilities making fishing a real pleasure.

Our tour visits the southern city of Krabi, and without doubt one of the best lakes in Thailand where you can test your skills and stamina in water packed with potential world record fish. Mekong Catfish reaching weights in excess of 200lbs, prehistoric Arapaima up to 400lbs, Siamese Carp up to 150lbs and a host of other giant species all go to make this unbelievable lake something quite special.
Our guided tour gives you 7 full days fighting the giants of Krabi and offers fantastic accommodation on site in well appointed lakeside cottages. There is even a English restaurant on site and your own private swimming pool.
