    ideas for fishing weekend

    I've promised the Missus I will be good this weekend and not go on the piss all weekend.

    She likes fishing, so I was thinking of staying at one of those fishing lodges with one of those balconies on the front, where I can fish and down a few beers

    Can anyone recommend a place a couple of hours drive from Bangkok ?

    What I've seen so far is this jurassic Park place....


    Jurassic Mountain Resort & Fishing Park (Cha-am, Thailand) - Guest house Reviews - TripAdvisor

    Whaddaya think?

    PS. Where's that restaurant in Bangkok where you can sit there and fish, get someone to reel it in, then get your photo taken with the fish, then get the guy to bash it on the head and stick it on a plate ?

    Cheers

    I was right about that tourist trap, look at this.....

    The dirty stinkin robbin bastards

    Bungsamran will need no introduction to keen fisherman, opened 6th April 1984 it’s the best known fishing park in Thailand. They claim they have Mekong giant catfish exceeding 330lb and Siamese giant carp pushing 350lb. It’s not cheap for foreigners to fish here, foreigners pay five times the price that Thai nationals pay.

    Cha-Am fishing park. Has lodges, food, provides rods and tackle, very reasonably priced.

    I used to go a few years back, plenty of big ones.

    We can have a pint! Or in your case, a Bacardi Breezer.

    Wasn't me who couldn't handle the whiskey.

    I'm still not sure what to do now, although I've booked a hotel in Bang Saen, which I can cancel I think. It looks a bit shit that Bang Saen

    I would have liked to have come and seen you next week for the Man U v scouser slaughter

    There's nothing more disconnected than fishing in one of these made-up spots.
    Much too contrived...

    Just ask your family, friends, or neighbors for real getaway nature locales.....or just hop in your car and drive [depending on where you are] - you'll bound to find countless places by just asking the locals. Be adventurous and expand on one's impromptu impulses - fishing need not be planned or organized.

    If your going for the weekend bad idea.
    If you can't catch just go have a look at the one that got away.

    The Marine Science Museum is the place where specimens of marine organisms both animals and plants are deposited for identification, exhibition and/or further studies. Exhibition concerning these organisms are ranged from minute ones such as plankton to the larger ones such as whale shark. Besides, exhibitions involved marine science and exploitation of marine natural resources are also on displays.

    A bit of foreplay helps sometimes....

    The fish are watched working their way up the shallows and rapids. When they come to the shelter of a ledge or a rock it is their nature to slide under it and rest. The poacher sees the edge of a fin or the moving tail, or maybe he sees neither; instinct, however, tells him a fish ought to be there, so he takes the water very slowly and carefully and stands up near the spot. He then kneels on one knee and passes his hand, turned with fingers up, deftly under the rock until it comes in contact with the fish's tail. Then he begins tickling with his forefinger, gradually running his hand along the fish's belly further and further toward the head until it is under the gills. Then comes a quick grasp, a struggle, and the prize is wrenched out of his natural element, stunned with a blow on the head, and landed in the pocket of the poacher.

    no fish on the menu though - a grilled fillet of fresh barra would be a must
