The captain has a lot of experience with fishing trips and he will take you to the spots where the biggest fish can be caught. The locations are usually those that lay North of Koh Samui.
Once everyone is settled the tour guide will help those fishing to bait up using the live bait stored in the on board holding tanks, this includes squid which will be used when bottom fishing / line fishing to catch cobia, sailfish, snapper, grouper, gar, stingray, queen fish and many more. Your tour guide will then tell you about the array of different fish in Thailand´s waters and how you can catch them.
On the trip trawling gear lines will also be available when sea conditions are favourable for use en route from and to the pier and between fishing spots. This gives you the chance to go after the really big ones such as barracuda and mackerel.
At around Noon the boat will stop and the crew will serve a delicious Thai lunch on board and you will also have the opportunity to barbecue your catch! If you would prefer to eat it later, then our staff will fillet it for you to take back to your resort to be cooked in the hotel restaurant.
After lunch, more fishing will take place until you arrive back at the pier at 17:00, where your air condition minivan transfer will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
