Bungsamran is quite possibly the most unique fishery on earth. This body of water holds the giant Mekong Catfish, Siamese Giant Carp, monsterous Arapaima, and many other exotic species.

Bungsamran is located in the Bangkok, Thailand district Suichapibahn 1. It was originally a quarry then built into an approx 20 acre fishery with depths ranging from 2 to 12 meters.

Fishermen can fish out of comfortable bunglows on Bungsamran. The bunglows range from basic to extravagant with many including beds, refrigerators and even television.

There is a 7 Seas Proshop located on Bungsamran which has all the current rods, reels, and lures.

The majority of fishing is using large ground lamb/rice balls rigged on a small hook.

There is restaurant service on Bungsamran.

The fishing is fantastic with many broken rods and sore arms experienced each day.

The best way to fish here is to hire a local guide who has all the tackle and experience needed to put you on to the "Fish of a Lifetime"
