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.
