As Big Game Fishing is one of the most expensive sports we deliberately built our company to give anglers / curious tourists who have not experienced Big Game Fishing before the opportunity at a "budget" price with experienced crews.

For serious fishing or fishing/party/snorkeling we have the best value boats.

Great day out, Jim collected us from our hotel and was very friendly, he had a good humour and seemed well informed upon the fishing in the area. His Thai staff that came on the boat with us were very accommodating and really tried hard to help achieve the goals. Unfortunately didn't manage to catch a sailfish, but we double... More

Turned up for a boat fishing trip for a stag - group of 10. When we set out we realised there were no fishing rods on the boat. Hosts on the boat were locals and were very nice however we simply set out into the ocean and came back, over the course of a whole day without any fishing taking... More

ALL VERY FISHY ! Two negative reviews on the same day from the same place, one saying there were no rods on the boat and the other complaining we trolled “trailed lines behind the boat” which is what Game Fishing is all about. So someone is lying to Trip Advisor, their readers, and myself and as such I believe both... More

Fun day out as part of a lads holiday. He 2 Thai hosts were excellent and looked after us well. The downside to this day out was that paradoxically we didn't fish... at all! A couple of rods were trailing behind whilst we sailed across the sea but we were not offered the opportunity to fish ourselves, nor did we... More

Sailfish, we hired mena 1 for the day and managed an amazing big Sailfish. I've always wanted to catch one and the crew worked hard all day to entice the fish. Overall a very good experience, with good equipment in stunning surroundings. Al and Jo, UK

Yes, a bad day's fishing is always better than a good day at work. And I have to do this for a living. It was that or stand for president. :-) Thanks for the support. Jimmy More

Overall experience was great. Staff knew what needed to be done and what I wanted. Weather had a little factor on our trip so we wasn't able to catch what we wanted but still caught a lot of fish.

It was my boyfriends birthday and I really wanted to arrange a good fishing trip for him. Something he has always wanted to do! After doing some research and calling, we took a chance and booked with Jim. And it was one of the best decisions made on this trip! Jim was very responsive through emails and calls. He patiently...

I have been sharing time on the sea with Jimmy. He has a huge heart and through this, he's abilities to forge good and lasting relationship with people are unique. He is one of the few foreigners, farangs in South Thailand that I know of who has such deep and profound connection with Moken - people of the sea. In... More

I've been fishing many times in the area over the past 20 years and for the last couple I have gone with Jimmy because I am more likely to have a good catch ( I had been with other providers previously but they tend not to go to the best sites to save on fuel) Last time out in february.... More

We've been to Phuket 4 times within the past 3 years, and went fishing 3 times, and each time we went with Tight Lines as they do an awesome job. Jimmy, the Boat Capitan & owner of the business along with his team are very knowledgable, and look after all your needs to make sure you have a great experience.... More
