Top­cats

Carpworld - - TOPCATS -

Stoke an­glers, Matthew Perry and his four friends re­cently made the jour­ney to Top­cats from the UK. They’d had the trip booked for quite some time and were re­ally look­ing for­ward to catch­ing some of the ex­otic mon­sters that swim in the 5-acre lake at Thai­land’s Top­cats re­sort. The hol­i­day got off to a good start on the first day with all the an­glers in the party land­ing some big Gi­ant Si­amese Carp. The fol­low­ing day saw the group bait­ing up and con­sis­tently feed­ing the swims, and then the fish­ing re­ally got go­ing with all kinds species and sizes landed, in­clud­ing some Ama­zon Red­tails. Matthew and his friends quickly slipped into a daily rou­tine – they’d get up early in the day and fish for few hours. Then they’d go to the restau­rant for break­fast and fill up their ice chest with drinks that would last them dur­ing the heat of the day, be­fore re­turned to the lake and fish­ing un­til 5pm. At that point they’d re­turn for din­ner be­fore slip­ping back to the wa­ter­side for a few hours at sun­set chas­ing the big preda­tors. All of the group’s mem­bers were suc­cess­ful, land­ing Ara­paima up to 280lb – which nat­u­rally made their hol­i­day so mem­o­rable. Af­ter such ac­tion they were de­ter­mined to re­turn in 2019. The to­tal num­ber of fish landed dur­ing their week was well over 300, which turns out to be about 60 fish per an­gler – a great catch rate! Top­cats cer­tainly of­fer the po­ten­tial for a fan­tas­tic an­gling ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­vide ex­cel­lent food and drinks. Their op­tions also cater for fam­ily par­ties and in­clude as­sis­tance with chil­dren.
