Top Cats Re­port

Carpworld - - ECHOES - Shaun Mcnutt

Stephen My­ers came over for his fourth visit to Top­cats and this time was stay­ing for three weeks with 15 full days fish­ing and three half days. Steve is a match an­gler and likes to keep ac­cu­rate records of the fish he catches, on which bait, time, etc. The de­tails that he gave me are mind blow­ing, as I knew he was do­ing well but not that well! In to­tal he landed 224 fish with 11 dif­fer­ent species, and with a to­tal weight of over 9800lb. That’s an av­er­age of 13 fish per day. Steve man­aged Gi­ant Si­amese carp with four over 100lb – largest 135lb; six Ama­zon Red­tails over 100lb – largest was 140lb; and also Ara­paima to 160lb. This was a great hol­i­day and he will be back next year for more. The pineap­ple pop-ups worked well, with lit­tle-and­often free of­fer­ings of corn. Also wafters were work­ing in con­nec­tion with a method feeder of ten­nis ball-sized bait that com­prised corn, maize and crushed chopped boilies in the mix. We of­fer any length stay out here at Top­cats, with break days from fish­ing to ex­plore Koh Sa­mui Is­land or just re­lax around the pool. Just email me with your re­quire­ments for a free quote. Top­cats has just stocked three very large Gi­ant Mekong cat­fish weigh­ing 280lb, 295lb and 360lb. These com­ple­ment our ex­ist­ing stock lev­els, pro­vid­ing a range of fish from 40lb to 380lb. These cat­fish are renowned for their fight­ing power and never give up, so you could be in for a long bat­tle. They are fil­ter feed­ers and take maize or method mix and are al­ways hun­gry.
