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.
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.
