Less than an hour ride from Utrecht, in Maurik, you’ll find yourself on a peaceful fishing spot. Join Predator Fishing Erik for a relaxing and fun day of freshwater fishing. Captain Erik has been fishing this area since he was a kid, and learned from his father and grandfather. For him, it’s not just about catching fish, but also spending your time in nature.

Capt. Erik welcomes you on his 17’ Orka boat. She accommodates only 2 guests, so you’ll have your captain’s undivided attention and an option to fully personalize your trip. The boat is equipped with Humminbird Helix GPS and fishfinder, twin 50 HP Evinrude engines, and a live bait tank.

It’s best to tell the captain in advance what your goals for the trip are. Some fish may not be in the season, so he’ll make sure to organize everything for a successful day on the water. You can target Perch, Pike, Zander, and Seabass. You get to keep the fish within the regulations, so don’t forget to bring your cooler.

The captain covers your fishing license, rods, reels, and lures. You can bring your food, drinks, and your lucky fishing rod.

Predator Fishing Erik will make sure you always have a great time on the boat. Join Capt. Erik for a day and you’ll see why he chose to do this for life.

Pike, Perch or Zander can be caught in fresh water all year, but is not allowed in April and May because of regulations.

As a young boy, I started fishing because of my father and grandfather. I fished many years for Carp and, as I became older, I wanted a boat to discover the world of hunters. In 2009, I became a champion in Fishing for Pike-perch (Zander) with my buddy Marc, who currently runs his own flyfishing shop. Fishing is my passion and I would love to take you with me on the water and show you how to catch your dreamfish!
