Above are some more pictures of just SOME of the fun had at the Lodge recently. Giant Mekong Catfish, Amazon Redtail Catfish, Asian Redtail Catfish, Arapaima, Alligator Gar, Giant Siamese Carp and many more.

Some of the recent activity at the Lodge. Plenty of good catches despite the hot weather. Amongst them were, Alligator Gar, Giant Mekong Catfish, Chao Phrya Catfish, Amazon Redtail catfish and plenty of Giant Siamese Carp. We’ve also welcomed some nice new Shovel Nose Tiger Catfish to both ponds.

Amongst our many visitors on Thursday 10/01/19 were Chris Behan and his son Archie. It’s always good when a father & son come fishing, and a steady day produced, amongst others, several Suwai Catfish, Pacu, 2 Arapaima, a good 18Kg+ Siamese Carp from our top pond and a rare appearance of one from our bottom pond at a tad under 30Kg. 😎

We received this nice mail from Chris-

‘Thanks for a great day out. We enjoyed the fishing, chats and hospitality. It was an outstanding day. I have attached our best photos from today.’

And above are some of them. Thanks for joining us guys, it was a pleasure having you with us…👍🎣👍Bas Tijhuis and his lovely Wife joined us on our Day Package on 28th September. Seems like they had a blast, catching some 20 something fish……!!!. Above are some of the photos that Bas has kindly sent,
Species caught included Arapaima, Alligator Gar, Giant Mekong Catfish, Giant Siamese Carp, Suwai Catfish, Amazon Redtail Catfish, Pacu, and Rohu. Well done folks – bucket list well ticked.

20/07/18 Dirk Köhler and his family departed the Lodge having spent 9 nights with us. They have stayed with us for similar periods over the last few years, using the Lodge as a base to tour Hua Hin and also of course to fish our two ponds.
The weather this time around was mostly overcast and rainy – but that never dampened the enthusiasm of Dirk and his son to catch a few fish.
Over six sessions there were many fish landed – we lost count. However, as usual our friends managed to get some of our better specimens.
Amongst these were Arapaima, Alligator Gar, Giant Mekong Catfish, Chao Phraya Catfish, Amazon Redtail Catfish, Suwai Catfish, Pacu, Giant Siamese Carp, Black Minnow Shark Carp, Rohu, Clown Knifefish, and Mad Barb.
Above are just SOME of the many photos that Dirk has shared with us.
Thanks again for your continued patronage Dirk, and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Everything comes to he who waits.
Martin Boman had been successfully fishing Chalong Fishing Park in Phuket. Jez kindly referred him to Hua Hin Fishing Lodge to pursue his species hunt. On 12/07/18, he completed 3 sessions with us and finally got his target fish – an Alligator Gar.
On the way he also bagged quit a few of our other species, including plenty of Giant Siamese Carp, Suwai (Striped) Catfish, Pacu, Amazon Redtail Catfish, Arapaima and Chao Phraya Catfish.
SOME of his catch shown above.
Well done Martin and good luck with your future fishing adventures.10/07/18 Gog Unnim made a welcome return to our top pond, with his family. Fishing was not too easy, with mixed weather conditions – but above are a few pics of his catch.

9th July saw Blake & his Dad visiting us on our day PACKAGE. These guys were not used to still water lake fishing but soon mastered the methods and ended up with a good haul between them. Above are some of the photos of some of their catch. Well done guys.

5th July – Marion, Quentin & Nathan Thill joined us for the day and had a real blast.

Karen & Gordon Thomas. These were just some of the fish caught when they visited us on our day PACKAGE three times at the end of June and had some good fishing. There were plenty of Giant Siamese Carp, Suwai, Pacu, Amazon Redtail Catfish, Alligator Gar, Arapaima and Chao Phraya Catfish.
It was a pleasure having you guys here and good to know that you enjoyed your experience with us. Hope to see you again soon.

Another returning customer, John Metcalfe, completed two visits with us (10/06/18 and 17/06/18). On the first visit, apart from some 7 – 8 Giant Siamese Carp, he managed a beautiful Julien’s Carp AND a Takok Tapien. These latter two species are some of the rarer varieties that we have. On his second visit he returned to target Arapaima. Assisted by our resident bait minder Sy, he managed to bag two in the bottom pond. Well done sir.

Niall Forster made a welcome return visit on our all-inclusive day PACKAGE 04/06/18. He’s visited several times before, but on this visit he surpassed his previous records with 21 fish of 7 different species. A day of sunshine and heavy rain saw the sometimes-difficult conditions rewarded with a fine catch. Included were 4 Arapaima, some good Amazon Redtail Catfish, some chunky Giant Siamese Carp, Pacu, Suwai Catfish, a nice little Rohu and a splendid Chao Phrya Catfish. Above are just some of the photos that he has sent. Well done Niall and thanks for your continued support.Saturday 10th March – Was a very busy again at the Lodge. After Friday’s pouring rain, the fish were feeding again. Today, it was the Arapaima in the bottom pond that were active, with, amongst others, 3 of them, caught by Thomas Dovling and his party. Thomas has been fishing here many times and has never managed to catch an Arapaima before this visit. He has also donated a very fine RAPALA weighing net and scales (up to 25 Kg) to the Lodge. Thank you, Thomas – and of course RAPALA.
These scales were put to fine use, when returning ‘Day PACKAGE’ customer, Jesper Jakobsen pulled a nice 22.38 Kg Giant Mekong Catfish from our top pond. (Almost 50 lb in old money).
Christelle Bardez and her partner also joined us on the bottom pond and bagged a good Asian Redtail, an Alligator Gar, some Pacu and some Siamese Carp from the top pond.
For our other visitors, some Siamese Carp (Some to around 19 Kg) and plenty of Suwai & Pacu to keep the kids amused, plus a late Amazon Redtail for Jesper – All in all a fairly good day.

George Sidgwick joined us 5 times during his holiday in Hua Hin. He has sent us these great pics of just SOME of his catch.
Pacu, Giant Siamese Carp, some really nice Amazon Redtail Catfish, some Alligator Gar and the Arapaima that he was after. But the two stars of his visit were a rare appearance of a delightful Rohu and a strikingly beautiful Chao Phraya Catfish – both from our bottom pond. Thanks and well done George.

Daniel fished with us at the Lodge last year and managed to get an Alligator Gar.
He returned yesterday 01/02/18 on our ‘day package’ to try for amongst other species, some Arapaima.
I’ve been out and about today and Daniel’s camera has broken – but – we managed to get these few photos of today’s exploits.
Apart from several Pacu, and copious amounts of Suwai Catfish, Daniel managed to get himself a couple of Giant Siamese Carp, another good Alligator Gar, a Giant Mekong Catfish and 3 Arapaima – the smallest of which is shown here.
He has promised to return for some Amazon Redtail Catfish, Chao Phrya Catfish, Asian Redtail Catfish, Wallagu, Julien’s Carp and a few other niceties that the Lodge can throw at him…………😉🐟🐟
Great stuff Daniel – look forward to your next visit.

Torsten Karden, partner Bianka, and son Andreas from Lübeck Germany, visited the Lodge several times over the New Year period. They caught loads of fish on every visit, on both of our ponds. They very kindly sent us the attached photos of just SOME of their catch. These included many Giant Siamese Carp from our top pond, plenty of Amazon Redtail from our bottom pond + Alligator Gar, Arapaima and a Wallagu. Thanks for the photos and your visits folks – it was fun having you here.

Steve Spurs Degraag and his wife Mandy are no strangers to Hua Hin Fishing Lodge, they have fished with us many times before whilst holidaying in Hua Hin. These photos are of some of their catch of 22/11/17. Some good Amazon Redtail for both Steve and Mandy, a Pacu and Arapaima for Steve but the catch of the day was a fine Alligator Gar – right at the end of their second day.
Steve has never caught a Gar before but managed this fine specimen to make up for things……………..
Steve said – “I had only a 3rd of a fish left for bait , was gonna pack up ,but hey ho, pukka alligator gar, big thanks to the owner and our helper , Could not do enough for us …pukka

Terry Augustus returned to us 22/11/17 for a spot of fishing on our bottom pond. He managed to bag another of our variety of fish – this time a Wallagu.  Together with an Amazon Redtail Catfish and an Arapaima, he had a good day. Well done that man.Peter Iversen is a regular customer at Hua Hin Fishing Lodge. Last Friday (17/11/17), he had a superb day catching 23 fish in total, including three species that he had never caught before. Chao Phrya Catfish, Alligator Gar (2) and an Asian Redtail Catfish were his new experiences. There were many other Giant Siamese Carp, Pacu and Suwai Catfish and an Arapaima. Well – variety is the spice of life – well done Peter and thanks for your continued support.

Rainer Koch has visited several times whilst holidaying in Hua Hin and is no stranger to this page. He has always had successes on both ponds and is still the only person to catch 2 Wallagu in one visit and one more on a later visit. The pictures were taken in October 2016 and September 2017. One picture is of his charming wife Renate who was normally behind the camera.
The photos include plenty of Amazon Redtail Catfish, Arapaima, Alligator Gar, Asian Redtail Catfish, Clown Knifefish, Wallagu, Pacu and Giant Siamese Carp.
Thank you Rainer, for sharing them with us, and thank you for your continued patronage. Hope to see you both again soon.

Andy Leak visited us 31/08/17 and managed to bag the above very nice Chao Phraya Catfish from our bottom pond. Well done Andy – who sent us the following kind words –

“Cracking day of fishing. Really friendly staff. They have 2 lakes so you can bag a good variety of different fish.The fry up in the morning was banging with proper sausages and bacon like back at home. Awesome.”

Thanks Andy – much appreciated.

Regular customer David Rhoades joined us again, 29/08/17 and has been knobbling the Giant Mekong Catfish in our Top Pond – as above. He also managed quite a few Giant Siamese Carp in the same session. Well done again sir.

(19/04/17) Kevin Young and his charming good lady have fished with us several times before. However I cannot recall ever having a couple produce a brace of Alligator Gar before. Caught at the same time and making everone totally surptised, it was a great moment to remember. Well done folks and many thanks for your return visit over the last weekend.


Early this week, Jon and Collette joined us for a few hours of fishing on our bottom pond. Jon was targetting Arapaima, so he was particularly miffed when only after about 90 seconds (On the first cast), Collette delivered the goods……………. But, Jon made up for it with several other good specimens including this fine Asian Redtail Catfish. Nice having you here folks.


25/09/16    The weekend fnishes here Part 3… Yesterday (Saturday 24/09/16) was a bit of a washout, but as usual the Lodge made up for it in spades today. With a busy day on both ponds, there were Arapaima, Giant Siamese Carp, Krahay Thong Barb, Pacu and Suwai. There was a beautiful Asian Redtail Catfish from the bottom pond that I hope to receive a photo of very soon. Meanwhile Nicolas was fishing the top pond and had the fish of the day – this stunning Julien;s Prize Carp. Well done Nicolas.
