Laem Panwa Fishing Competition

 – Laem Panwa.

The objective is to board your vessel, weigh anchor and cruise the ocean to catch the biggest fish.  Immediately I envisioned GPS trackers, angler chairs, an abundance of rods and lines and smooth sailing.

I was therefore pleasantly surprised to see the local fishermen cast off in their long-tailed boats with just picnic boxes, bags of ice, fishing rods and the ubiquitous Thai smile – beautiful.

The next day the fishermen returned from their night of fishing with their catches. Some of the fish actually looked quite scary, even in broad daylight - imagine catching them in the dead of night... think I've read too many Stephen King novels....

By the way, our Kantary Bay staff came second with their catch 
– congratulations boys!
