Sea and Game Fishing

There are dozens of places that organise sea fishing expeditions. The main locations visited are Manwichai, Rin and Kram islands. Typical catches are marlin, barracuda king mackerel, and others. For a lazy day out, many tour operators arrange a day out at one of Pattaya's islands and the lunch is usually caught on the way out!  
There are several reputable Thai fishing captains and a half dozen qualified professional fishing guides. Most of the guides will provide rods, reels, tackle, and bait. However, your are more than welcome to bring your own gear should you desire to do so. You will most likely be able to arrange to go fishing with these professional guides any day of the week. The boat costs are paid for by the fishermen. Most boats leave around 8:00 a.m. or as agreed, and return at approximately 6:00 p.m. There are overnight fishing trips available. This is good for catching larger fish.  
  Almost all of the charters are on board traditional Thai fishing boats, ranging up to18 meters in length, providing the customer not only with good fishing, but also a bit of historic Thai culture. The waters are calm enough for all to enjoy, the Pattaya Gulf is sheltered and thus not subject to the large swells and rough seas known to most deep-sea fishermen. Worthy sized sharks, skates, rays, sailfish, barracuda, and cobia, are a few of the many varieties abundant in the waters in the gulf. Recently, a 120 kg Eagle Ray and a 50 kg Sailfish were landed!
