Baetong Fishing Park

Baetong Fishing Park Pattaya

Baetong is one of the larger parks and located in central Pattaya it can get quite busy. The fishing here can sometimes be rather slow so take a bottle or two of bait flavouring with you to improve your chances. They claim they have Mekong giant catfish up to 60kg, a friend has seen one of around 40kg pulled out so if you are after them I would use 30+lb line. The fish tend to congregate towards the far bank so casts of around 40m are needed to reach them. A technique which works well here is to thread some bread onto your hook and float it on the surface, the staff often throw bread in for the fish.

  1. haha! I use that technique 2years ago.
    it is good news to know.
    The guide told me that no one use that techniqueback then.
    but if you want use that techniqe, you need long sea road( 5.3,5.4m).
    otherwise, it is hard to cast.

    Ps. They ripped me off I think I payed like around 1500bat

    1. Same with me today,rod hire ฿500 (includes fishing fee & bait set) no way we paid 600 and every time someting break from there fishing rods you have to pay,because they are not capeble to make good knots,and the line is old. Also the ฿120 (2kg flavoured breadcrumbs & small loaf of sliced bread) is not 2kg and cost you 150 baht,and every time you order a bucket more its only the breadcrumbs for 150, the slices of bread you have to pay more, its pure mafia tactics there now.totally rip .

  2. this is one of our favourite fishing parks in pattaya. we were there in September 2015 during the floods and had to evacuate the place as the water had risen a good 4 feet above ground level. we went back at Christmas and the park had been restocked with a lot of 30kg meekongs grass carp and talipia. over 3 weeks we fished it a dozen times or so and always caught plenty. the owner has a new prize policy in place too. if you catch a meekong weighing 5kg you get 500 baht 10kg you get 1000 baht and I caught a 30kg meekong resulting in winning a bottle of whiskey! we always enjoy fishing there

    1. Sad that they have stopped all the promotions. Over the past 12 months have fished twice a week along with many others in our group but alas no more poor sevice and new rules have put damper on our fishing days at Betong

      1. the promotion is back on again, caught fish 7.011 kg, but not good, 11 grams to much, halloooooo, so its easy to make promotion.

  3. I go to this pond 3 to 4 times a week and its the best place to fish and relax.
    The people are Nice and friendly and will help you.
    only problem is the cost of drinks.

  4. Have been fishing at Betong twice a week for the past year along with other friends. We have enjoyed some great days the high light was the promotions as we all enjoyed trying to out-fish each other for them, but sad to say the Thai boss decided to stop all prizes and posted signs stating no food or drink from out side otherwise pay fine, you can’t buy food from park till 2pm also guides now useless since their best guide left (name withheld).
    Plenty of good fishing to be had at other parks.

  5. I went yesterday fishing Betong and the price I payed was,150 bht for breadcrumbs ( not even close to 2 kg), 150 for fishing,100 for big chang,But after all the young guys are very helpfull,Also have food after fishing, very good but also farang prices.

  6. Went there today, pretty easy to catch the small catfish.
    Not so big place, but the guys there are very helpful.

    Quite cheap as well.

  7. This used to be a good pool i always took my own tackle so i knew how to keep it i watched many hirees loose loads of end tackle due to using weak line but now its too dear for a small pool i go to jomtien now more enjoyable

  8. Fished there 3 times and every time my bill woz loaded with drinks that I hadn’t had. I don’t drink when fishing . The final insult is the last time because I had set up 2 rods the same as other times but only fished one rod at a time didn’t use rod the last time .when I. Got bill he said I had to pay for two rods. Got very aggressive when I argued with him . Won’t go back again . Rip of place .
