Arapaima Monster Fishing Phuket

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. This is a strictly catch and release fishery where the survival of the fish is paramount. Get ready to get wet as you join your catch in the water for a photograph!

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.

Exotic Fishing offers a pickup service from Phuket and areas in the vicinity so all you need to think about is if you’re ready to wrestle with a 100 lb freshwater monster fish!

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.
