I am agreeing with the review from goufam when we arrived the ginger man didn't welcome us and was very rude we went there has 2 couples and we all agreed he was rude, we done fishing which was great and the thai people are great but the ginger man comes down when my partner catches a fish and my partner try's to talk to him about the fish and he was rude again he needs to learn some peoples skills if he wants to run a business, the food is over priced for thailand he just wants your money with no communication at all, would not go back because of him, but the fishing is great.

From the moment we arrived at TopCats Resort, there was no welcome on arrival, we literally had to introduce ourselves to the owner who was sitting on his computer, very un interested in us. After fishing at various fishing resorts throughout Thailand over the years, we found TopCats to be a real letdown. We were fishing with Children and our guide cracked his first of many Leo Beers at 8.30 am, the guides didn't keep our rods baited and we would sit there for hours without them helping. The kids did have fun catching fish, but very small in comparison to what we usually catch and very expensive. On a bright side the women do a fabulous job preparing and delivering great meals and drinks, but the standard needs to be lifted when It comes to client relations. I wouldn't come back and would not recommend TopCats to ant future travellers visiting Koh Samui.

My partner and I visited Topcats for a full days fishing, and in all my years of fishing all over the world, I have never experienced this. To put it simply, this is THE BEST FISHING EVER.
Service was phenomenal, the fishing IS world class, and the fish welfare and care is exceptional to say the least.
The guides are attentive, helpful, knowledgeable and are a prime example of Thai hospitality.
Fishing wise, anyone who is considering going, JUST DO IT. Words cannot describe the exhilaration and experience.

I fished here on day ticket basis. I fished 2 days around 18 hours in total. Some might say its expensive at £140 a day. But thats average for a top fishery in Thailand. In total I caught 10 fish. Lost 2 gator gars which annoyed me cause I really wanted to catch 1. I never caught any of the lakes monsters, but I did catch 2 species I hadn't caught before - White Pacu & black wallago . Which made my day and set 2 new pb's. I had mekong up to 60 lb & siamese carp uo to 40. Also a little ariprima. The guides do all the work which was surprising but I never asked to bait up or cast anyway... so I will never no... The only thing I found to be dissapointing was everybody fishing in a long line together with no breaks in swims. This caused a lot of crossed lines & having to bring bait in for half hour or so. There was other swims at different area's of the lake. But perhaps we was fishing the best areas. So that's s good thing I suppose. There's lot's of variety of fish here & that's what I targeted rather than 1 monster fish. Overall a great place to fish and well worth a visit. The food was excellent expecially the home made pies & the big mug of English tea. Also your partner is allowed to watch you fish. There bus a swimming pool & drinks avaliable all day . Tight lines
