Game fishing in Pattaya has always provided anglers with a challenging experience.
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 Fishing Charters, and most will provide rods, reels, tackle, and bait. However, your are more than welcome to bring your own gear should you desire to do so. Some of the bars where ‘game’ anglers hang out, organize trips on a weekly basis. 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.
The Pattaya Sports Club has a special section for Game Fishing and also ranges every week a trip. Check the Pattaya Sports Club website for more info
