    I'm really into my fishing too. I like the day ticket parks cos they're good sport as has been said before. And you can have shelter, food and drink. Here's some from the park in kanchanaburi near Lotus. Lots of little pacu, but not going there again cos he charged me 300 baht.. :confused:

    And here's a big pla dook from Chonburi.. great there and great food.. only 40bht. This one growled like a dog!

    Me? I think fishing is the best thing ever. I'd love to go to one of the fishing parks and catch some lake monsters like redtails, arapaima and siamese carp like these..

    I just saw some silver fish with beautiful snake patterned scales that were caught in the rice paddies down the road. They look about half a meter each. No hooks no blood, net lowered in the canal on side of the road.

    No I am not planning to make a meal out of those beauties... ;)

    I've always found it difficult to find decent worms here. The ones I do find are few and far between, and they seem to be emaciated which I'm not sure is even possible with worms. I've also tried cultivating maggots but they were still tiny after a few days so I'm not sure if I was doing it right or if they were from the right type of fly.
    Nice size. Does it retain water during the summer months?

    Look on the net how to make a wormery. Easy! You definately need the right fly for maggots. Greenbottle i believe, never seen them here.

    Luckily, yes. The first photo is of a hole 30 m x 30 m and 3 meters deep, the one with the girls is 20 x 20 x 2m. The water you see them standing in, is at dry season ground water level.

    My son has been trying out some of the fishing parks around Sriracha over the last couple of months. Most seem to be 60 baht/day.

    Some parks have two ponds, one for large fish and one for smaller, take home to eat. 1kg/person free and then 40baht/kg.

    Ready for the bbq.

    He goes with a mate of mine and they are both quite competitive.

    5.jpg

    The largest they have caught so far was 6.5kg.

    On Friday my mate caught 27 but my son just beat him with 28 fish.

    The most common bait used at the parks round here is bread.

    That's a good sized fish!

    I'll be heading to a fishing park in Phrae tomorrow morning with a few friends. I've never fished there before but they have. Judging from the pictures I've seen of their previous trips, It should be a good day.:happy1:

    On our plot of land in Prachuap, we have a small natural pond.

    My cousin and nephew caught some fish using nets.

    I asked them to pay tax for fishing in my pond. :)
