The giant dinosaurs of the Fraser River also known as the White Sturgeon attract many anglers from across the globe and comes as no surprise that anglers tend to return year after year to try and beat their personal best. With Sturgeon averaging between 75 – 200lbs now being the norm this truly is a wilderness adventure for the true specimen angler.

All of which allow you to target some incredible species. Additionally, all our holidays are fully packaged meaning you do not have to worry about anything.
The beautiful Gillhams fishing lake resort is located in the stunning area of Krabi Southern Thailand and is surrounded by limescale Karsts which are covered in a protected tropical rain forest. The resort can cater for single anglers, pairs, groups and we can also arrange full lake exclusivity.
This is Catfish fishing at its best, for the experienced or for those, who have never even caught a Catfish - this trip is designed for you. An amazing one out of five Catfish are over the magical TON-100lb. The river we fish starts at the large dam just above Mequinenza, which is the mecca of the Catfish world.
Peacock Bass is the most incredible game fish in the Amazon basin, it is the fish that has received the most attention. Their remarkable explosive top water strike combined with an astonishing ability to break heavy lines and straighten even stout saltwater hooks, makes them one of the most sought after species in the world.
Targeting mammoth predators in one of the most famous lakes in Sweden, with record-sized Pike, Zander and Perch finding their way into the lake through its small connection channel to the Baltic Sea the potential of this private lake is vast!
Given how popular Carp fishing has become we have been searching the world for top quality Carp venues. We would like to introduce Carp Heaven Lake located in Hungary only 10km from Nyíregyháza which is the northeast side of the country. This stunning piece of water is 59 acres and over 40 years old. The owners have stocked over 25,000 Carp in this lake from 20lb-40lb.
Thailand is an amazing place and with all the different species of fish that live there, we thought it was time to offer them to you. We have access to the one and only Predator Lake, which offers anglers the chance to do battle with such fish as Arapaima and the famous Redtail Catfish that grow to gigantic sizes.
This 34 acre Carp lake in Hungary is a little gem and once you have looked through the gallery you will soon realise that there are some stunning Carp to be caught, especially the heavyweight commons which this lake has in abundance. This lake has been built with the Carp angler in mind with the centre of the lake dotted with small and large Islands, hence the name of the lake.
One of our popular freshwater destinations is the River Ebro. The River Ebro is world famous for its Catfish fishing, but one little known fact is in the upper reaches the Common Carp fishing is truly second to none. Over the years we have been fishing this area concentrating on the Catfish with live baits. All the time while fishing we have seen hundreds of Carp rolling, crashing and feeding right in the margins. This is Catfish fishing at its best, for the experienced or for those, who have never even caught a Catfish – this trip is designed for you. An amazing one out of five Catfish are over the magical TON-100lb. The river we fish starts at the large dam just above Mequinenza, which is the mecca of the Catfish world.
Another favourite destination is Lake Sibbo. The Lake Sibbo has been known for its predator fishing for centuries, firstly for its Pike and Perch and more recently for its potential record sized Zander. The fact that Sibbo is connected to the Baltic Sea allows these colossal predators to migrate out into the Baltic and gorge themselves on the huge herring shoals that inhabit these waters. Sibbo is an all-around predator anglers dream with the chance of taking personal bests of all species on both lure and fly.
This incredible destination has a 12-acre lake stocked with 51 species of fish from around the world. Six of these species exceed 100lbs, with Arapaima, Chao Phraya Catfish and Siamese Carp to name a few. Gillham’s Fishing Resort has constructed a new fishing resort in the beautiful coastal area of Krabi, southern Thailand. The fishing lake, restaurant and well-equipped bungalows are surrounded by limescale karsts and protected in tropical rainforest 5 km from a beautiful sea kayak centre, and 19 km from the lively seafront town of Ao-Nang.
If monster Sturgeon are at the top of your list, the Fraser River in Canada is an ideal location for you. With its year-round action, you will be in a fishing paradise. This part of Canada is world famous for its huge run of the White Sturgeon and it’s not just the number that is present, it’s the size that attracts anglers from around the world as these prehistoric beasts grow very large and fight very hard. With Sturgeon averaging between 75–200lbs now being the norm this is an action-packed wilderness adventure not to be missed. The fishing takes place from a town called Chilliwack which is the perfect base for your adventure and with it only being a short 40-minute drive from Vancouver.
