We have spent the last 2 weeks netting our stock ponds and moving a lot of our fish into our main lake . Most fish are easy to move but the Arapaimas can be tricky .


These fish are very unpredictable.


We use 5 people on smaller fish and 7 people on 100kg plus fish ..



Even with 5 people holding the fish firmly in the blankets we use to move the fish it only takes one quick shot from even a smaller 50kg Arapaima and someone could have a broken rib or worse.


Once the fish are in the main lake we let them rest and take a few breaths before releasing them .


All our fish have adjusted well to the main lake . The water quality is excellent and very similar to the ponds which the fish are moved from .


We have had a few fatalities in our fish moves from Bangkok due to the distance but it has been a very small percentage . We are always trying to improve our method of transport and handling all our fish .


There are still more fish coming from our offsite ponds. We are also continuing to grow our onsite stock so we always have new fish to add to the main lake to keep the catch rates up as the current stock get smarter ..

TERRIFIC TIGERS

We have had some great success growing our Tiger Shovelnose Catfish.


It was a nice surprise to see how big these Tigers have grown in the past year when I caught them to move to the main lake.


The markings on these fish are simply incredible...


This was one of the fattest Tiger Shovelnose we put in the main lake..

We are always growing new stock for our lake . We have several different sizes of Tigers growing in our tanks and ponds . Our goal is to keep your fishing fun and interesting . We do this by continuing to introduce large numbers of different Exotic species..It wont be long before we have even more Tigers swimming around the lake .


CUSTOM DESIGNED BAMBOO SALAS IN YOUR SWIM

We have designed custom bamboo salas for your lakeside comfort and privacy while fishing . They are designed with a covered back and partially covered sides to stop the wind and rain blowing in . They are also extra tall so you wont bang your head when running to strike for a fish . The finsheed sofa and table are both practical and stylish .. We thought it would be interesting to show you how they are made .. They are manufactured in Phuket at a small family run company that can make just about anything from bamboo.


The first step is to soak all the bamboo in water ..


The next step is to remove the outer skin before cutting all components to length . .


A hole saw is used as the construction is based on fitting the smaller diameter bamboo frame components into holes in the larger bamboo components. The other materials are added using a small air powered nailing gun ...


The finished products are really quite strong.


Boom and Michelle decided they would be the first to test the first sala :)


The salas are delivered on a truck with small crane for easy unloading


We borrowed a metal frame with wheels to be able to roll the salas into place .. We had to push some of them over 200 meters to the fishing swims.


Our team as always were creative on getting the job done..


They used lengths of wood and rolled the frame along and then kept moving the back wood to the front until done..


All the salas are in place now and waiting for customers ... We are now busy working on gardens and laying grass to put the finishing touches to the resort .
