I was up early had a nice breakfast at the hotel then waited for over an hour for a taxi (once again my luck with transportation is continuing) before heading off to see Dominick and our fishing excursion. We had a bungalow on the water with a fan, a guy to bait the hook and even cast pool for us. All we had to do was try to real in the largest cat-fish I have ever seen. We missed a few, but were able to pulled in several each that were round of 50lbs – Not a simple task. In fact it almost killed me! Who would have thought Bangkok would be home to cat-fish of this size?
Corinne and Chris when you come and visit in February skip the shopping and make sure he takes you guys to this place. I had a great day, the fish were biting and the weather was perfect!
I left the fishing spot smelling like a fish, sore but with a few good pictures and a great memory! Thanks for a great day Dominick!
Next up was Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand via Air Asia. Dominick assured me no one would notice that I smell like an oversize cat-fish on the flight.
Another highlight was riding on the back of Dominick’s motorcycle that is until we had a flat tire. I guess it was not made to hold me and was only designed for a family of 5 locals. Chris and Corinne you guys should not have any problems! Just another issue with we and transportation in Thailand.
