Highlights Of Pattaya Fishing Tour In Thailand



“Whoa! That is one heck of a fight!” excuse the pun but that is exactly what you will hear when you book a Pattaya Fishing Tour experience with Thaitourismguide. The call for “tight lines” is a motto for this particular tour. Do you think you can land a 100kg fish guaranteed and take the strain of at least an hour fight between you and this huge monster fish? This will be a true test of your fishing skills and stamina and you can really go home boasting on the biggest catch of your life, besides the wife that is.

Either way it is an enjoyable activity even for those who are not avid anglers. Less cannot be said for the all-time angling enthusiast who will be watching who has a strike in the spot across and away from you. The surfaces of the waters are bubbling with monster fish coming up for food or reprieve is a sight to behold. One thing is for sure, you would have to get into the shallows to reel in your fish trophy as it is just too big for any net and will take sometimes two persons just to lift it up and out of the water for a photo shoot.
