dusk till dawn fishing. start fishing by sunrise

What to expect during the day

We'd love to start just before sunrise. The perfect start for a day out on the water.

There are different types of fishing possibilities and we try to fit your wishes.

If the weather allows us, we'll go for the BIGGEST lake the Netherlands has to offer.

The IJsselmeer.
If the wind is too strong we have to move to other options like the IJssel river or other freshwater lakes The Netherlands has to offer.

My name is Patrick van der Wal and I would like to take you with me for an educational and fun day of fishing.

From an early age already on a boat fishing with my family and now grown as a fanatical all-round angler on smaller and the biggest lake the Netherlands has to offer
After the largest Perch, Zander, and Pike by means of various techniques.
Finesse. Jerkbaits, Twitchbaits, or fishing with a fly. Everything is covered. Express your wishes and Patrick will be happy to take you for a fun and educational day to the place where personal records are crushed.

Your guide

What does a fishing day look like?

At 7:00 am (8:00 am winter time) we meet at the slipway. A fishing day lasts 8 hours and that is of course completely according to the wishes of the customer. Together we determine which predatory fish we are going to attack and which techniques we want to use. When making our battle plan, we naturally also take into account the expected weather conditions for that day.

Which fish can we catch?

We only fish for predator fish, with a specific focus on pike, zander or perch, whether or not combined. Other predatory fish that end up in the boat are asp (relatively common) or catfish (rare). However, we do not focus on asp and catfish and it will therefore always be a coincidence.

What should I bring with me?

A packed lunch and something to drink and clothing that matches the weather!

That means in winter: lots of layers to keep yourself warm. And in the summer, short sleeves and shorts seem nice, but keep in mind that we have no shade in the boat, which means you burn very quickly. If there is also a breeze on the water, you don't even feel that you are burned; at least, you can feel it, but only when it is too late. I therefore always recommend long pants, long sleeves, a cap and lots of sunscreen!

And last but not least: for every season, a rain suit that you can put on over your clothes, even when no rain is predicted. Why do you ask? In the areas where we fish it can often be windy and when the wind is a bit obliquely on the boat you can really get soaked with the spray (water that hits the boat while sailing). Bringing a rain suit is therefore ALWAYS recommended.
