Arapaima Monster Fishing Phuket

Phuket International Airport
Phuket, Thailand

Exotic Fishing Thailand invites you to try something different on your next vacation in Phuket. Just a one-hour drive from the airport can take you to a one of a kind fishing destination. If you want to target monster fish and exotic species that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, you have found the right place. But don’t get our word for it - try it yourself!

On your day out, you will be fishing from your own private lakeside hut. The views of the surrounding mountains are beyond spectacular and the fishing needs to be seen to be believed. The lake is one of the largest fisheries in southern Thailand with nearly 10 acres of water.

With Exotic Fishing Thailand, the list of your potential targets is so big that it’s hardly possible to mention all 60+ species at once. You will be going after Arapaima, Siamese Carp, Giant Mekong Catfish, Alligator Gar, Chao Phraya Catfish, Wallagoo Leeri, Yellow Cheek Carp and many more.

You will be able to take 12 swims to catch the fish of a lifetime. Your guides will help you throughout the adventure landing the fish, helping with photos, changing leaders, and bait.

All trips come with two rods, tackle, and an unlimited supply of bait, as well a taxi ride back anywhere in Phuket Krabi or Khao Lak. A lakeside food and drinks service with both Thai and international food will be available.

My favorite species on a fly rod is Arapaima. There is nothing like hooking into one of these acrobatic monsters on a fly rod! If you like steam trains - then look no further! Mekong Catfish on conventional spinning tackle can be back breaking fun.

Second time i visit Mikes exotic lake Phuket!
Rematch on Arapaima this year, didnt succeed last year.
After loosing one big Arapaima in the morning the fishing was slow because of the weather.
But in the evening hell broke loose and eouforia took place with a fish to remember! A dream came through!!
Thanks to Mike and Paul to make this happened!

Best regards from Pär-Emil
