The Rewards of Night Fishing at Bungsamlan

Anglers wishing to exclusively target the Mekong giant catfish will be at no advantage by fishing Bungsamlan at night time. The day fishing is so prolific that to continue fishing for the Mekong giant catfish during the night would be exhausting to say the least – if anything the difficulty level increases as the light fade away.

However for anglers wishing to target either catfish & carp or specifically only target the carp – night fishing at Bungsamlan really comes into its own.

To target the Siamese carp day and night for the entire duration of your fishing holiday has significant advantages:

Advantages to Fishing at Night

The carp rods are in the water 24 hours a day – if the Siamese carp come into your baited area to feed – your baits will be ready whatever the time & however short the feeding spell may be.

A gradual but consistent bed of bait will build up in the swim – giving the best chance of attracting Siamese carp.

It has been proven that it is more likely that a consistent build up of bait will not only attract Siamese carp but also hold them for longer feeding spells. Also the Siamese carp will associate it with rich feeding grounds & return to feed on multiple occasions.

Siamese carp fishing at Bungsamlan is all margin fishing & of course at night time the banks are much quieter – creating a safer and more secure feeding zone for the Siamese carp.

Feeding times vary but typically two of the most productive times of day are very early morning and dusk – by fishing day and night you ensure that the ‘trap’ is always set at these peak times.

The Strategy

The best strategy is to fish the carp rods 24 hours a day – remember you are waiting a long time and 1 feeding spell is all it takes to hook a potential record carp. In the daylight hours it is a good time to fish extra rods for the catfish – with a multiple days fishing holiday it is likely that you will hook into one of Bungsamlan’s Mekong giant catfish over the 100lb mark.

Fishing Options

While the Siamese carp rods are fishing day & night, your allocated daytime Mekong catfish rods can be rigged to fish for other species. With the help of Fish Thailand Guides, you may like to livebait for Chao Phraya catfish; or scale down the tackle and target pacu & giant gourami. Any children present would love to fish for tilapia, a fish always willing to tug the float under!

Bungsamran Night Fishing Bungalow

The largest, most comfortable & modern fishing bungalow at Bungsamlan is an island to itself. With restricted access the swim it occupies is away from all of the other bungalows, walkways & access tracks – creating a totally private and exclusive fishing area.

The bungalow itself has a vast area of fishing decking allowing anglers to target catfish in the day time without creating a disturbance in the baited Siamese carp zone.

Set back from the open fishing deck, a large roof creates shade over the 2 bedrooms, dining area, coffee area & TV lounging area. With its own private shower and toilet block, washing up area and a fridge\freezer; this is Bungsamlan’s most luxurious fishing bungalow.
