good and bad..I went there twice for 6 h each. the first time was great incl a good spot and a good guide. i caught 5 medium sized fish (nothing special but still fun) and most importantly i had an enthusiastic guide who did his best. the second time was rather waste of time. i could not go to the spot that i wanted and my guide was busy sleeping, smoking or texting on his mobile and did not care much about fishing. for six hours i watched people to my left and right catching above 10 fish each so it was not that they were not biting that day. in a nutshell all depends what spot you get allocated and even more importantly who your guide is


Such a fun day!My husband and I had such a fun day at Top Cats. By the reviews we read, we went because we didn’t see why go deep sea fishing if we were not going to eat them and only kill for the catch. We love to fish every trip we take and this was something that we have not tried. This place does take very good care of the fish and use antiseptic if the hook punctures the skin. We are only giving it 4 stars because our guide was nice but very distracted by co workers and didn’t really seem that into us or helping when we had on a fish on the line. The facility was great but the workers could of been more professional. Maybe it’s supposed to be more of a laid back facility but for the money I would just assume the staff would be more put together and more interactive. The experience was great though and would recommend anyone who wants to go catch and release some monsters. Plus the pictures are priceless that we have of our day!

I cant recommend this venu enough. Truly amazing 5++++++ STARS. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟I highly recommend topcats to anyone wanting an amazing time catching some equality amazing fish, we were there for a 6hrs session and caught some truly awesome fish (piranhas, Siamese carp, Mekong catfish, red tail catfish, ripsaw catfish just to name a few), the staff there show the up most respect too the fish as well by applying antibacterial spray on the hook wounds to avoid infection and re oxygenateding the fish before release all were extremely knowledgeable and tried there hardest to put us in positions to catch as many fish as we could. i cant recommend this venu enough to all that enjoy some serious river monster's


A must do event..Shaun and his team are very welcoming and everyone has the same goal, to catch as many fish as possible! My helper Bah couldn’t do enough and his advice was spot on. While I was there a mum and Nan with a six year old came to fish with no experience, they ensured the lad caught, it was a 100lb + Arapaima. I caught 5 species, 15 fish in total, and would recommend without hesitation to pay the team a visit.

Empfehlung an alle Fischer.Ich bin Spontan mit dem Roller hingefahren, und hab auch ein Angelplatz bekommen. Ich habe vor Ort Erfahren dass man aber besser vorher Anruft und Reserviert. Ich hab für 4 Stunden gebucht und ein paar Gute Fische fangen können.Die Guides sind Top und versuchen alles damit man ein gutes Fangergebnis erziehlt.Fische werden gut behandelt und nach dem Fang wieder schonend zurück gesetzt. Für Fotos mit den Fischen muss man ins Wasser gehen. Preis ist etwas Teuer aber für das Erlebnis jeden Cent wert.


Outstanding establishment and fantastic fishing!I have just returned from a 3 day fishing trip here with 4 nights accommodation. The bungalow I stayed in was very clean and had excellent facilities including air con and a good shower, TV and free mini bar in the fridge located on the lake itself the bungalow was cleaned every day with new towels provided and the best part was the soft mattress - just like home!The fishing was outstanding, I landed 27 fish over the 3 days and lost a few too, my biggest was a 100lb Amazon Red Tail Catfish which fought like a train. I'm a beginner with big carp and occasional fisherman back home but my guides here were superb and sorted my gear out for me on a daily basis in my own sheltered swim, they love these fish and took great care of them.Other staff were also excellent, coming to my swim several times a day offering me hot food and cold drinks which was brilliant. As I was staying on site I used the restaurant each night and the food was great with large portions and very reasonably priced with a choice of Thai or Western dishes.The owner Shaun is a really nice bloke and he runs the place with his wife who is also lovely. I must give you two health warnings though 1) it's addictive fishing! and 2) it's a good work out pulling the heavy fish in, but well worth it and I will be back. This was my first experience of fishing in Thailand and I see no reason to visit any other fishing place based on my experience here 5*Thanks Shaun and the Top Cats team for such a memorable and fun stay - see you soon!

Amazing experience.An absolutely must-try if you like fishing.Beautiful location and really nice staff who were really eager to help catching your next river monster :)They took really good care of the fishes.All in all a great experience!


Three days of fantastic fishing..I spend 3 days at TopCats this summer, and I caught 41 fish with 11 different species. I have fished many other lakes in Thailand, and this is my best result ever. The last day I brought my family, and my to boys fished as well - and caught a lot of big fish - great family fun.This lake is a good choice, if you really want to test your fighting skills. The staff is really nice and english speaking. I would love to go back.

Best days fishing ever..I arrived at top cars for a 6 hour session, as I walk through the entrance the owner is throwing food in the water, with some very big aripaima sat there like dogs waiting for it, excited at the sight of that I was dying to get the rods out.Within 15 mins I’m into my first fish - a paccu which I lost in the reeds, not a problem cause my next cast throws up a 40lb Siamese carp - followed by 5 more Siamese to 75lb, a paccu, Chinese carp and a red tail catfish.In short - amazing fishing, great guides and the steak roll is incredible!Tight lines!
