Top-Water Fishing Thailand

Scary Baits
Shawn Moffitt - Creator of Scary Baits


Fish Thailand first came accross 'Scary Baits' when Shawn Moffitt booked a 10 day fishing holidays in Thailand. Being primarily a great lure angler, Shawn takes great pleasure and pride in his home made lures; needless to say he bought a good selection of buzz baits along with him.


When conditions allow fishing top-water lures for barramundi, the buzz baits retrieved slowly work brilliantly and the hook hold is unbeatable.

Jungle fishing in Thailand, be it at Srinakarin Dam, Khao Laem Dam or any natural and wild body of water in Thailand - the most exciting and sporting technique is top-water lure fishing. Fishing this style is known to produce many more missed strikes than hook-ups; although adding to the fishing thrill it can be very frustrating. With Scary Baits's buzz-baits, Shawn Moffitt and the Fish Thailand Team have found time and time again that these buzz baits boast a much higher hook rate with far less lost fish or missed strikes; putting more fish in the boat. Typically the favoured lures for giant snakeheads have been scum-frogs, surface frogs and surface poppers, all of which have their use in specific conditions. Buzz baits are an over-looked or not even thought of choice of lure for snakeheads, but ironically are amongst the most effective. The vibrations and water disturbance created by these buzz-baits can not be matched by any other style of top water lure, also they are very versatile and can be even retrieved through light surface weed where a popper would get snagged up.

Shawn creates these deadly buzz baits along with spinner baits as a hobby, although they are easily as good quality, design and effectivness as those manufactured by the tackle giants. For more information or to order Scary Baits email Shawn Moffitt directly at
