Great news !!!! Exotic Fishing Thailand's lake is finally full :).
I am very happy to see that our filters and drainage/overflow system are working as designed.
The lake is not dropping , even though we have had hot sunny weather for the last 3 days .
I figured we would lose around 1cm per day through evaporation alone , but with the water table being so high right now and the numerous springs the lake hasn't dropped 1mm..
We are now busy with the massive task of landscaping .
We had our first 5 big trucks of fruit trees , flowering trees,and exotic shrubs and plants arrive today .
The place looked like a nursery/ garden center by the time we had unloaded everything.
We have ordered 100's of trees and bushes , over 20,000 plants and 10000 sqm of grass and that's just for round the lake .
I am so excited as each day my vision of what the finished product will look like is slowly becoming a reality .
July will be super busy with more landscaping and finishing, and of course we will be starting to add our many Exotic fish species :)..
Loads of pics coming ...
-1- EXOTIC SPECIES ; We have over 50 interesting species some of which are not readily available at other resorts . These include;- Jau catfish , Vundu Catfish , Piraiba , Goonch , Chinese Black Carp and many others.
We are working on our fish list and will post it soon. We also have a special stocking program to ensure that our fishing only gets better and more interesting.
-2- ARAPAIMA; We have one of the highest stocking rates for Arapaima over 50 Kg in Thailand.
-3- BIG FISH; We have Arapaima over 300lbs, Wallagoo Lieri over 100lbs, Alligator Gar over 90lbs , Siamese carp to 60lbs and Mekong Catfish over 210lbs.
-4- A QUIET AND PEACEFUL FISHING SETTING ; Due to the fact that we only allow 12 swims to be fished on the lake at one time . Our lake is over 25rai and one of the biggest fisheries in southern Thailand .This has allowed us to leave generous space between our swims and position them so you feel like you are almost alone on the lake .
-5- FARE PRICING; We have very reasonable rates compared to fishing venues of a similar level throughout Thailand. Check out our price list especially our “Family Special”.
-6- EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE; . Our friendly lakeside service team is available around the lake to take your food and drink orders and supply cold towels and ice etc as required. If you don’t wish to be disturbed simply flip the do not disturb sign on your swim entrance.
-7- DEDICATED GUIDES;- Our guides are assigned to 4 swims maximum so that each angler has the necessary assistance they require and to ensure our fish are not mistreated in any way. There will also be an extra person available for assisting in the landing Arapaima so that your guides are always available if you need them.
-8- RULES;- YES just like any other fishery we have rules. There will be a special upcoming post to cover rules and regulations.
