This park is no longer accessible from Jomtien Beach Road soi 14. It’s now on Jomtien 2nd Road between Soi Wat Boon and Soi Chaiyapruek 1, look for the sign pictured below. The park is stocked mainly with striped catfish between 7 and 10kg, with a few larger ones up to about 20kg, there are also a few Mekong catfish. The guides always use bait flavourings so probably best to buy some at the park or bring your favourites with you. Most of the fish congregate towards the far bank so casts of 30-50m are the order of the day. They claim to have Mekong giant catfish up to 40kg. Well worth a visit, but of all the photographs they have stuck on the wall there is no fish remotely approaching 40kg.
