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.

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...

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

As we don't do and never have done boat sharing (7 + 4) and for the past month all our boats have left Chalong Pier at 7.30 with me personally supervising the departure, I can only assume this person is confusing Fishing in Phuket with one of the other charter companies, as this review definitely does not refer to our...
