The Phuket Fishing Park is Phuket’s best and incidentally only freshwater Monster Fishing Lake! We have over 12 different species from Thailand, America and many other parts of the world. 

Our fish are exotic monsters, fishing is popular in Thailand, up and down the country there are fishing lakes and Phuket Freshwater Fishing Lake is definitely one Thailand’s best and with the most varied species, all waiting for you to catch.

We can also arrange pick up for you, we are located not too far from Patong or the other west side seaside resorts on the Island. If you require our hotel pickup service, then just tell us what date and time and where we can pick you up from and of course, when you are all fished out, we will take you back! Contact us!

The fish in our lakes are comprised of several species, some from Thailand, and others from the far flung corners of the world. They include:

The famous Alligator Gar which is a top North American predator. It’s the largest freshwater fish in Mississippi river and grows up to 150kg, the biggest we have in the Phuket Freshwater Fishing Park Lake is 30kg and it is a beauty.

Arapaima is one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world and one of the fiercest too. We have put some in the Phuket Freshwater Fishing Lake last year and my how they have grown already. The Arapaima, pirarucu, or paiche (Arapaima gigas) is a South American tropical freshwater fish. It really is a living fossil and one of the largest freshwater fishes in the world. It is very aggressive and loves chicken, full chickens. Great Sport.

The Barramundi is an excellent fighting fish; it will jump and scrap until it is exhausted. In the Phuket Freshwater Fishing Lake, we have recently stocked a few Freshwater Barramundi to see how they will adapt, if they do well, we’ll definitely be putting in more! They have been a great addition to the lake, as they are one of the most aggressive and exhilarating predators in Thai waters.

The Giant Mekong Catfish is the biggest freshwater fish in the world. It can grow up to 400Kg, the biggest Mekong catfish we have in the Phuket Freshwater Fishing Lake is 50kg and I promise you that is a huge fish. The Mehkong Catfish is usually caught on bread, but who knows, they have been known to take other food stuffs too.
