Our group of 6 chartered "Dorado" after a friend strongly recommended to try game fishing while on holidays. Only 2 of us were keen fishermen, the other 4 had never sat in a game fishing chair and pulled in a big one. So ok, we had done lots of other good things we decided to give it a go.
The whole day was fantastic from pick up to fishing, snorkeling, lunch and back to our hotel.
The big , roomy boat was well maintained and safe. Meeting the crew was nice and by the end of the day we were friends.
The morning fishing was a bit slow but the cruise out to the area was pleasant and interesting to see Phuket Island from the water. Then the action started with 2 lines hooking up at once. We all hauled in some nice tuna, a mackeral, and yes, got a medium dolphin fish (Dorado).
Lunch on board and a brilliant snorkel at famous Racha Island made us debate whether to stay there for the afternoon or do more fishing. More fishing it was and successful too!
The trip home with a beer in hand helped the stories of the size of the fish caught get bigger by the minute. Alas the digital camera evidence!
All in all a day out big game fishing has to be a good option while in Phuket. It is a fraction of the cost of back home and truly a memorable day.
