Tap caught this beauty using a rubber shad.

There’s been a lot of talk about the second Amazon BKK and I’ve had some of you guys messaging me asking for the pond’s details. Thanks to the floods and a busy schedule I found it hard to make my way there but now that a lot of things have settled down I’ve finally made time and organised a group to go fishing with me via the forum in the “Organise a fishing trip” section. If you haven’t already checked it out, please do. It’s been a super helpful tool for me and other fishermen who need to plan trips on a budget and the more people joining that, the easier it would be for me to find new places to share with you all.

Anyway, back to Amazon BKK 2. The new pond is 10-rai (about 4 acres) and is situated in Nakhon Pathom. I’ve added a page with its info and location for anyone that wants to give it a go.

As for us, we all managed to catch something but the team of Japanese fishermen who were regulars there pretty much decimated us by catching an Amazonian species every 20 minutes. Apparently they were regulars there and know every trick they needed to kick our asses.

We’ll be back for sure, this time with even more toys to entice the fish!

At the bottom I’ve compiled some of my photos from yesterday’s trip. If anyone who came with me yesterday wants to add some photos to the gallery, please feel free to add it to the forum here.

    I just know that Dechophan got his monster on a red and silver lure, and we had good results in general with green lures. I landed 3 on green.
