Prapradaeng Lake
Specimen Barramundi Fishing in Thailand

Prapradaeng Lake as it's name suggests is situated in the Prapradaeng region of Bangkok – only 1 hour from Bangkok's city center. This lake differs vastly in size, layout, features, stocking density & size of fish compared to that of Fish Thailand’s other barramundi fishing venue – Boon Mar Ponds.

This 16 acre 'lure only' lake is not a commercial fish farm or fishery and requires special permission from the owner to gain access; hence providing the experienced roaming lure angler with testing fishing sessions and exhilarating rod bending action.
