Zander and Perch Fishing Amsterdam

As a UFX Fishing Guide, Captain Juul aims to give you the ultimate fishing experience. He’s dedicated to showing you the best fishing grounds for zander and perch in Amsterdam, and share his knowledge with you.

You’ll be fishing on a 16’ Siegersma custom designed aluminium fishing boat, powered by a 70 HP Yamaha outboard. It also boasts an 80 LB Minn Kota Ulterra trolling motor, and comes equipped with three high end Garmin Echomap screens and Garmin Livescope. There’s enough room for 3 guests to enjoy the trip, so bring your nearest and dearest for a thrilling day out.

Amsterdam is famous for its great stocks of Zander and Perch, but also Pike and even Asp can be targeted successfully. Vertical jigging and dropshot fishing are effective techniques, but Capt. Juul is dedicated to casting soft and hard baits as well. Just share your preference with him and he’ll make sure he gets the right tackle for your needs. Of course, he’s always on hand to give advice about techniques and tactics.

You’ll be fishing with top-of-the-line St Croix fishing rods of the Tournament and Elite series, equipped with Shimano Vanford and Tranx reels. When it comes to lures and soft baits, Capt. Juul uses only on the best: Megabass, Molix, Keitech, Spro, and much, much more great stuff that’s waiting to be eaten.

All fishing equipment, snacks, and drinks are included in the price. If you dont have a Dutch fishing license (VISpas), you can purchase a day license on the day of fishing for only 5 euro.

UFX Fishing Guide Amsterdam is ready to give you a tour you won’t see every day, so come along!

Ps note that in April and May we use nightcrawlers only because the use of artificial baits is not allowed by law during this period. The good news is that fishing with worms is often at least as effective as fishing soft baits.
