Free fishing Pattaya area

Recommended Posts

I'm toying with doing some float fishing which i haven't done since i was a kid but i fancy doing it, I'm not interested in game or parks or sea fishing. I've done a google search and everything seems to be parks where you get much bigger fish and have to pay a days fee.

 

Any free options?

 

To the negative guys, try to refrain from sarcastic comments, thanks

Well you can float fish the irrigation canals (NOT KLONGS). 

 

Usually on the way to BSR theres some good natural spots (but no fisherman stops there because BSR mission). 

 

Theres this one spot 

 

Sunflower Bangkok
Prasert-Manukitch Rd, Khwaeng Lat Phrao, Khet Lat Phrao, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10230

I see a lot of thai people fishing there using floats and bait, or artificial lures.

A little bit too far, I'm looking for something around Pattaya. I've passed a couple whilst cycling where i see Thais fishing with multiple rods, i need to check these out next time i pass. The thing that occurred to me is whether Soi dogs are a problem which would ruin the experience

Ah those Thais with a bunch of rods, they’re actually bottom fishing mainly for carp/barb species. Alternating baits between bread, rice husk, and the occasional earthworms if the fishing shop has them in stock. 

 

It really depends with the soi dogs, but I wouldnt fish near a spot where a local old lady feeds the soi dogs. Although being a dog owner for all of my life I know my way around soi dogs and have faced off more than a few packs, I would not advise anyone to take the risks I do.

 

also 

“pla gin dee mai?” = fish takin the bait?

”dai gee tua wan nee?” = how many fish you caught today? 

“Ohooo size dee mak” = Good size! 

“Size waan waan” = Tiny fish

”Mee taa size waan waan” = Only tiny fish here 

“Size rub kaek” = Good size to start the day off

Oh also you can fish at the Dok Krai reservoir, the local Thais do that. If not then close by theres also Nong Pla Lhai. Those are natural reservoirs near the Pattaya, although its actually in Rayong.

Well.... you can say that I was fishing before I was born.... I was shown an old photo of my mom pregnant with me and handlining for seabream or small mackarel. I remember being around lots of tackle as a kid, I guess I was around 5 or 6 when I was actually starting fishing. Fished almost every weekend with my dad, at least twice a month regardless of weather, did that until my dad passed away when I was 15. After he passed away, I didnt get to go out fishing much, and after I turned 18 I barely touched a rod... aside from school and working, my free time was doing pretty much what other 18 to 25 year olds are doing - partying and chasing girls.... so in a sense I never stopped fishing, just changed from getting fish to getting girls. Even though at that time I wasnt an avid angler, I always had a rod and reel plus a tackle box close by. But I was mountain biking and skateboarding a lot, and didnt have a car, but probably once a year my friends would want a Bungsamran trip and I was pretty much the guy who had the tackle for it (FC Monster Mariner rod with my dads old Penn 210 reel loaded with 50 lb mono)... I updated my rods but I was too attached to that reel. 

 

Until earlier this year I finally purchased my first car, and for the last 6 months I have been going out fishing almost every weekend (and also spending an ungodly ammount on fishing gear also). Ive also now started to work and maintain my own gear, which thanks to building my own mountain bike wheels Ive somehow acquired the patience to properly dissassemble and reassemble a fishing reel. 

 

Even during the “hiatus”, if I saw a body of water, the first thing I always thought of was fishing there. 

 

In summary, basically fished from 5-15, stopped from 15 till 30 except for sparse trips, now 30 with a car and fully back into it.
