Cha-Am Fishing Park
There are some fishing resorts in Thailand which are remote, which is a great factor for many anglers. However, not everyone is looking to escape from it all. It might be you are looking for a resort which is close to some major tourist attractions, allowing you to combine fishing with a host of other activities. In this regard, the Cha Am Fishing Park is a great option to consider.
Where is the Cha Am Fishing Park?
The location of the Cha Am Fishing Park is one of its strengths. It is found just 10 minutes from the centre of Cha Am, around half an hour from Hua Hin and it is less than two hours from Bangkok. If you are looking for a day trip adventure, this is a perfectly placed park that will ensure you have a great time when fishing.
What fish are stocked at the Cha Am Fishing Park?
When it comes to fishing at the Cha Am Fishing Park, you can enjoy a good range of fish, and you also have some monster fish to look out for. There are 15 species on offer across the two lakes, and if you love big fish, you are in the right place.
The Mekong Giant Catfish is a natural attraction, clocking in at more than 150lbs. You also have the Giant Siamese Carp, which is more than 90lb. However, the star of the show is in Lake 2, the Arapaima fish. Here, it weighs in at more than 220lbs, so if you are looking for a mighty battle, you will love what is on offer at the Cha Am Fishing Park.
What is the day rate at Cha Am Fishing Park?
The standard day package on offer for the main lake costs 1,500 baht per angler per day, and you get a whole host of benefits for this price. You get two rods, you receive tackle, you will be supplied with an adequate allowance of bait, you have a guide on hand, you get soft drinks, and you will receive a meal, either breakfast or lunch. This is a great deal for an affordable price, making this a very affordable option.
If you want to splash out a bit more, you can book a day ticket for the specimen lake fishing for carp, which comes at a cost of 4,100 baht per day. You get the same benefits as you receive with the standard day package, but you are in the specimen lake with the larger fish.
However, if you are keen to push the boat out, why not enjoy the specimen day package for 6,1000 baht per angler per day. You will receive a carp rod and Arapaima rod alongside the standard benefits of the other packages. This is more expensive than the other options, but it should provide you with a fantastic day of fishing.
