A good Chao Phrya Catfish from our Top Pond
Just got this photo of a fine 15Kg Asian Redtail Catfish caught on 2nd Feb. The variety at the Lodge just keeps coming…………
Paul Stephens and Trevor Woolston have been staying with us for a few days and between them they have caught Giant Siamse Carp, Amazon Red Tail Catfish, Alligator Gar, Pacu and Suwai Catfish. Others have also caught Arapaima, Black Shark Minnow Carp and Jullien’s Carp. But first prize must go to Paul with this stunnng Shovel Nose Tiger Catfish – a real beauty.
Bob has stayed and fished with us several times in the past and is always looking for a new species to his list. He’s been with us for a couple of days already and has had plenty of Siamese Carp, Pacu etc. Today (23/01/16) however, we crossed one off of his species list when the Lodge produced this lovely 12 kg Jullien’s Golden Carp. Well done again Bob – these Carp are some of our prized possessions, being a Critically Endangered Species in the wild.
Lisa and Mark joined us on our ‘Day Package’. We had a blast……….
Mark is the serious fisherman – Lisa came along to keep him company – AND CUDDLE THE FISH. Yes folks we have a fish cuddler amongst us. Well – to the delight of some of the onlookers, Lisa got well slimed up from the many Giant Siamese Carp, and a damn good slapping from one of them. On the second visit, the plan was to catch an Alligator Gar – which eventually happened – but not after Lisa was seen screaming ”I don’t know what to do!’ having hooked the second Arapaima whilst Mark was contenting himself with a small Suwai Catfish on the top pond.
Lesson learnt Mark……………Just to say what great company you both were and here are the photos that you kindly sent. Hope to see you again next visit.
Everything comes to those who wait. Having seen his son catch an Arapaima the day before, John came back and tried his luck again. With his day nearing it’s end he bagged this 45Kg specimen.Well done John.
Miles, with his first Alligator Gar
Rainer visited us on a Day Package. He caught, a Pacu and an Arapaima amongst others. But the special catch of the day was this rarely seen Wallagu Attu. Just one of the many varieties to be found at the Lodge. Well done sir.
Malcolm popped by and dangled a rod. After a few reasonable Giant Siamese Carp, he then blew away the record for the Top Pond with this 22 Kg Giant Mekong Catfish………Well done sir, may I remind you that the Top Pond is where the small fish are supposed to be……………….
Paul Mulally joined us on our ‘Day Package’ and successfully bagged quite a few nice fish. He sent us some photos of his day and here are two of them. Both fish weighing in at around 18 – 19 Kg, a Giant Siamese Carp and A Giant Mekong Catfish, both coming out of our Top Pond. Well done Paul and glad that you had a good time.
Sam & Lauren with a simultaneous brace…….
Richard with his 25Kg Amazon Redtail Catfish
Jake with a 10+Kg Pacu
Lord Morgan with his Clown Knifefish
Giant Mekong Catfish
A total of at least 44 fish varieties across both ponds ranging from tiddlers up to 70 Kg. OK – our fish are NOT all monsters – however, they are big enough to test the casual angler and interesting enough for those who like something different..
Our fishing prices are not monstrous either.

**WHAT IS CATCH & RELEASE FISHING?
Catch and release fishing is a practice within recreational fishing, intended as a technique of conservation. After capture, the fish are unhooked and returned to the water before experiencing serious exhaustion or injury. Using barbless hooks, it is often possible to release the fish without removing it from the water (a slack line is frequently sufficient).
Recreational Fishing (Catch & release) is one of the most popular pastimes in the World. More than 100 million Americans & Europeans regularly go fishing. Fisheries are responsible for maintaining healthy and productive fish populations.
What is good fishing to one person, may not be good fishing to another. Some anglers don’t care what they catch as long as they catch something. Other anglers are only interested in certain species of fish. Some want to catch lots of fish while others want big fish. Still others don’t care if they catch anything as long as they get to relax in the beautiful outdoors. At Hua Hin Fishing Lodge we try and accommodate all of these needs.
Hua Hin Fishing Lodge proudly holds at least 7 (Seven) species of fish that are currently listed on the ‘Endangered’ or Critically Endangered’ species list of WWF.
FINALLY – A note concerning the feeding of our fish.
Some fisheries artificially feed their stock with pellets and hormonal supplements to encourage rapid and abnormal growth rates. Predatory species are often fed with chicken and / or meat products. We believe that this practice is detrimental to the natural health of the fish.
Our fish live on the natural food of our ponds – weed, crustacean, freshwater prawn, shrimp and crab, together with the fingerlings of the breeding species such as Tilapia (Pla Nin) and Tapien.
They of course obtain food from the ground bait used by our customers, mainly bread and rice flour, together with the small live/dead baits used to tempt our predator species.
As a policy, we NEVER practice artificial feeding to increase our stock size.
So – before you decide on a freshwater fishing experience in Hua Hin ………..
CHECK ALL THE REST and then COME TO THE BEST
