This is the new Pattaya Fishing Park. I managed 2 hours of absolutely exhausting Mekong catfish battling before the thunderclouds came and gave my aching arms and shoulders an excuse to call it a day.
Bait was sweetened bread with a method feeder packed with finely ground sweetened and flavoured bread. It smelled like pineapples.
The Old Pattaya Fishing Park was bought by developers and emptied and the fish transferred to the new. The new park is still looking a bit industrial and non-rural as it has only just been excavated and created. The fish get to over 180lbs although I can't imagine trying to land a monster like that. I think it would end with me being held underwater by the fish while his buddies took photos.
The Park Dog likes to get in the frame.
Thunderclouds in the background ended the fishing for that morning. Huge lightning storm with torrential rain followed.
