Jonas describes the fishing at the moment as, "The best fishing in May he has seen in years!"
Koh Samui based UK anglers Simon and Steve capitalised on the low number
of fishing boats in the area, commercial and pleasure, to land a large variety of game fish
on their recent 2 day, 2 night liveaboard trip to the Racha Islands , and Koh Rok.
The next trip brought some explosive popper casting action,
when massive shoals of huge Giant Trevally pushed bait fish up to the surface
in a feeding frenzy between Racha Noi, and Racha Yai islands,
and around GT Rock South of Racha Noi.
The fish were between 20 and 40 Kg!
We also spotted a 200 Kg shark crashing into the baitfish,
along with a huge whale and a Manta Ray!
The water levels are back up in Cheow Lan Lake after the recent rain,
which has triggered the Snakeheads to begin releasing their spawn.
The next few months should prove excellent fishing for these predators
as they aggresively defend their fry.
Fishing at Bungsam Lan has once again lived up to its reputation,
with many of our clients going back to their hotels "completely wasted"
after going head to head many times with the massive Catfish
abundant in this incredible destination.
