GAR-GANTUOUS


When planning our original stocking of the lake I hadnt intended on stocking Gar . When some real monster fish became available I was quick to reconsider and since then we have stocked some very nice specimens up to 55kg.



We have just stocked a lot more Gar all over 50lbs so your chances of catching one of these prehistoric looking beasts is very good. As a fishery owner I like them as they are a very sturdy fish and most customers love to catch them .


They are not overly difficult to catch due to always being hungry but they are reknowned for playing with bait and therefore a lot of empty strikes can occur .


With choppers like they have the next problem is that they often bite through the leaders .With some patience though there is a chance of some great photos.


Our staff is always available to help get you a safe photo.. We always have 2 guides available to handle a big Gar when the customer is in the water for a photo.


When a customer is too nervous for a pic Ross and I are more than happy to hold the fish for a customer pic . Yes we both still have 10 fingers....:)


The occasional customer wants a pic alone with the fish and as long as they have signed our waiver and understand the dangers they are welcome to do so at their own risk .



So if you are fishing in Thailand and Alligator gar are on your target species list then consider the monsters at Exotic Fishing Thailand. You can book with us or enquire further at Exoticfishingthailand@gmail.com.. Our website will also be live soon at http://www.exoticfishingthailand.com
