    Try these popular fish (especially in the Bang Pakong River) :

    – Pla Hang Kew (not sure about the English name, ‘Croaker’…?)
    – ‘Wild’ Barramundis (although probably not native)
    – Pla Boo (weird fish, but supposedly tasty)
    – Pla Kod (catfish-like, get quite big in some lakes and ponds)
    – Pla Beaw (Sheatfish…ugly things, but look mean)

  2. thanks for the recommendations. Do you head there often?

    A couple of times…rent a boat with guide to take you around the river (they are under the motorway bridge to cholburi, crossing the bpk river). but you must be in the right mood for this sort of fishing: life shrimp as bait, frequently changing spots, under the hot sun (hard to imagine that right now, right?), watching your floater. But it is a good and relaxing for a change.
