Fishing in Palm Tree Lagoon Thailand.
"Carp and Predator Fishing in Thailand,
for many different world record size fish species."
"Big Carp, Catfish, Alligator Gar, Arapaima
and 60 other species!"
(Year round fishing).
This fantastic little lake was first made famous when it featured in legendary
British angler John Wilson's Dream Fishing series. We first came to hear about it
through our fish supplier for Sawai Lake in Phuket and found to our delight another
quality fishing destination to offer our clients.
Palm Tree Lagoon holds some massive Giant Siamese Carp, the lake record
currently stands at 54 kilo which is 2 kilos above the IGFA world record, but
there are fish stocked to over 70 kilos!
Apart from our lake in Krabi, we consider this to be the best option in
Thailand for a 30 kilo + Giant Siamese Carp in a one day session.
Palm Tree Lagoon is best known for its predator fishing, but the carp fishing
at this venue is amongst the best in Thailand.
Palm Tree Lagoon is located approximately half way between Hua Hin and
Bangkok, and is well worth the journey when you discover that you can
often have the lake to yourself, especially in low season (May-October) and
you get your first glimpse of the massive fish surfacing across the lake.
Below is a list of the 32 most popular species in the lake,
and to what weight they are stocked to.
|Amazon Redtail Catfish||51kg+|
|Cheow Phraya Catfish||96kg|
|Featherback (4 species)||6kg+|
|Juliens Golden Price Carp||22kg+|
|Lau Lau or Piraiba Catfish||4kg+|
|Mekong Catfish (Giant)||130kg+|
|Peacock Bass||3 kg|
|Siamese Carp (Giant)||70kg|
|Thai Redtail Catfish||32kg+|
|Wallagoo Leeri||22kg+||Yellow Cheek Carp||5kg+|
The owner of the lake has opted for quality over quantity where fish stocks
are concerned, and the lake holds many world record sized specimens
of several different species of fish.
The biggest Cheow Phraya Catfish in Thailand are stocked here.
