Thailand Fishing Adventures - Siamese CarpThe legendary Bungsamlan Lake is situated in Bangkok and is home to some of the largest freshwater fish on the planet. The lake was formerly a quarry that supplied building material for construction in the city and has been a fishery for about twenty years. Bungsamlan Lake covers an area of 20 acres with varying depths ranging between 10 and 25ft. The lake is dissected by a wooden platform (commonly referred to as the 'shed') spanning the entire length of the lake in addition to numerous stilted bungalows (private) dotted around the lakes edge and is host to numerous IGFA world records for various freshwater species including Mekong catfish, Chaophraya Catfish and Giant Siamese Carp.

Thailand Fishing Adventures - Siamese CarpBungsamlan can be described as a highly prolific fishery which can produce upwards of thirty Mekong catfish in a good days angling. The lake responds well to various tactics including sliding float / feeder techniques in addition to method tactics hard on the bottom over large baited areas. It is an extremely snaggy and demanding venue and holds some of the largest freshwater fish ever caught on rod and line. The snag ridden nature of this venue often requires the guide to enter the water in order to retrace the mainline after a fish has entered the snags. The predominant species in the lake is the Giant Mekong Catfish which perform spectacular jumping displays throughout the day.
