Overview

The Big Blues is the premier sport fishing center based in Phuket, Thailand, managed by anglers for anglers in a professional way. Our aim is to provide first class bluewater and freshwater fishing adventures around SE Asia. In this view we offer tailor made private fishing trips around Phuket and the Similan Islands in Thailand, the Andaman Islands in India, the Burma Banks in Myanmar and Kuala Rompin in Malaysia. As far as the freshwater fishing is concerned instead we do operate mainly around Thailand where we offer guided fishing holidays where you will have the opportunity to fish some of the biggest and more powerful specimen in the world while visiting some unusual and out of the tracks spots around the country.
