Last weekend was special. Nuly, Jo and baby Iq decided to give it a go. They are part of the staff here at Chumphon Fishing Resort and untill some time ago, Nuly had little to none fishing experience.

They started off with a Redtail catfish to warm up and not much later Nuly even managed to catch an Alligator gar. It’s been a while since we saw one but they seem to be doing great. All this commotion drew the attention of some other predators… including some hungry Arapaima.

The next day more of the same. Pacu’s are growing hard and fighting even harder. In the end we got some of the (for now) smaller species like a Spotted Knifefish, a Barramundi and a regular carp.
