On our last day of the Thailand trip, we decide to take a 1 hour drive out of Bangkok to the Pilot 111 Fishing Ponds. Here, the biggest attraction is the giant snakeheads and stripped snakeheads. These fish are very tough and very aggressive! Snakeheads can be landed in Florida and often strike top water lures like poppers, frogs, etc.. My best lure was a jointed Live Target lure resembling a bluegill. Many snakeheads were landed by all in the group making our entire stay in Thailand a huge success. Much thanks to great friends Steve Ryan, Dr. Cole Lundquist, Chuck Boyian, and Jim Reed. Anxious to head to Uganda next month for monster Nile Perch. On your next visit to Thailand, make sure to hook up with Francois Helias at and check out his site at If you interested in having your complete Thailand trip take care of by a US rep, contact Steve Yatomi at As mentioned Thailand is rapidly becoming one of my favorite destinations worldwide for monster fish!! Get in the action while the fishing is great!
