Extreme Academy - Honey Badger 2

Ko Tao Surat Thani Thailand
Sairee Beach, Thailand

Extreme Academy Koh Tao specializes in big game fishing in the heart of Southeast Asia. If you have the itch to fish, leave the Koh Tao’s golden sandy beaches behind and head out onto the tropical ocean. Have an amazing experience and try something different during your next vacation in the Gulf of Thailand.

Always looking for more, Captain Tobin believes that one strike can change everything. His mission is to make your dreams come true. Tobin caters to any skill levels to match your expectations. Beginner to pro, you will be guided through the basics before you make your first cast. Captain Tobin uses only the finest equipment available by the leading brands such as Daiwa, Penn, Shimano. Hot, Joe Yee, Pakula, Rapalo, and Black Bart.

Your fishing adventure will see you targeting the biggest fish in the Gulf of Thailand. Chase whichever monster the gulf hosts, from Blue Marlin to Garfish.

Stay close to shore and check the bite for whatever patrols the local waters. Have fun fishing with light tackle for Spanish Mackerel, Queenfish, and Garfish. Or head out and lock heads with some reef species around the many pinnacles and reefs around Koh Tao. Switch between using heavyweight to ultralight gear for an ultimate fishing challenge. Jig and troll for Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and who knows what else?

Extreme Academy Koh Tao will take you out aboard the “Honey Badger 2”. She is a 21’ Samran Marine center console that can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers. The Honey Badger 2 comes powered by a single 200 HP Mercury Saltwater V6 engine with a top speed of 47 knots. It’s guaranteed that you’ll get to the fishing sites first!

The Honey Badger 2 has a great casting deck/jigging platform with a lot of space to butt heads against the reef chargers around the pinnacles. She is also outfitted with trolling mounts for Billfish, top-notch navigational electronics, and other professional accessories. All aboard!

    We head around the island and troll for Mackerel, Queenfish, and Garfish. This is a ridiculous amount of fun, not as big as King Macks and Marlin, but on the light gear, they are still just as good. There are very high catch rates, for those after the fishing experience without the cost of Big Game hunting.

Spent my entire life fishing since I was able to hold a rod. My passion for fishing grew as did my love for boats and the open ocean. Began fishing with friends aboard my first boat and the rest is history. Raced Thundercats and owned and operated a Marlin fishing boat out of Sydney Harbour, Australia for the past 20 years, raising Marlin almost 90% of the time. Seeing Marlin alongside is an experience no fisherman will ever forget, whether it's the first or the hundredth, it's always amazing.
