February Fishing Report

As the regular consumers of Jimmy’s literary contributions to the Phuket News will appreciate, I believe water is the most essential element of life on earth, for without it we couldn’t go fishing. Why do I mention this very obvious fact? Well, I’m completely cheesed off explaining to those city […]

January Fishing in Phuket

It’s Sods Law – fishing was great right up to the start of the “High” season when the spawning tuna flooded the sea with bait-fish and easy food which makes life that much more interesting for us sports fishermen/folks. This is a great example of the exception to the rule:- […]

‘One of the world’s best’

Right now fishing in Phuket has never been better, everything, with the exception of Wahoo, being caught regularly. The island even got a mention in Marlin Magazine, “Phuket, one of the world’s best Sailfishing destinations”. As the month progressed I had the opportunity of going out, luckily rain-free – surprising […]

Phuket Fishing in October

Well Maties, that’s it official this “low” season has been the worst on record, while amazingly T.I.T. the fishing, when we could get out, was up there with the best. So now we can look forward to Loy Katong and the start of the high season, which to the fishing […]

September Fishing Report

Mid-month we were surprised on how many boats went out considering the weather which was only fit for oilskins and sou-westers, this plus the severe lack of tourists not counting the Chinese hoards whose buses in conjunction with the traffic management system exasperates the massive traffic problems at the Chalong […]

You can’t say it’s good without photo evidence

Well blister me barnacles. As the seasonal Westerlies continue unabated, leaving little fishing news to speak of, except for the few brave souls who did go out and reported exceptionally good fishing continues, but returned with no photographic evidence, so I would once again like to turn your attention to […]

Ahoy once again Shipmates Prior to the big mid-month storm, excellent fishing reports came in from Neill C. on Fish Eagle with a good sized Sailfish, Fish Eagle also released a young Black Marlin, while  Ali a pal from Qatar landed a nice King and Queen with Mena 1. and […]

June Fishing Report

Well me Cockle Shell Heroes, May and the beginning of June was like dropping  anchor in sunny Glasgow waiting for a break in the clouds which never came, but on the positive side, we are now proud to announce that the “Chalong Fishing Park” lake is now full to capacity […]

May Fishing in Phuket

Once again shipmates, welcome aboard. The scuttlebutt this month has been few and far between possibly due to the weather and the lack of “fishing” tourists, although that jammy dodger Mateus who pulled last month’s Marlin and the only one who reported in, informed me of a large Sail Fish […]

A Trip to the Burma Banks

A vast and belay me hearties, lend me a lug. This month’s tale goes a bit further afield than usual, to the world renowned fishing-ground “The Burma Banks” where “Thai 2 On” spent the earlier part of the month, with Laust  Bendiksen, Steve Dickson our own marauding mariner, Ian Tubby […]

March Fishing Report

Right! You Orrible lot, After your comments on my last contribution, all I can say is:- “The beatings will continue, until moral is restored.” Nice to be a pirate, sometimes! Well, now back to fishing, March started off with what could only be described as mediocre fishing, but fishing being […]

News from the Sea Gypsy Village in Rawai

The new facade Ahoy Me Hearties Unheard of in my history fishing out of Phuket are these February squalls which, to my mind, are just another pointer to the climatic changes which are going on around us, and for the most part, being ignored.  Just another sad chapter in the […]
