Big Lake Pike Near Amsterdam

Only 15 minutes away from Amsterdam you will find an unparalleled destination for XXL Northern Pike. Our UFX fishing guide knows these waters like no other, putting you right on top of the fish. This is a big lake fishing for big pike at its best.

The options are endless: from casting soft baits to trolling large swimbaits and from fly fishing to dead baiting. No matter what technique you prefer, you can bump into a 20, and even 30lb + Dutch monster Pike at any moment.

During your trip you have access to the best tackle on the market: St Croix Legend Tournament casting rods, and St Croix Avid Inshore spinning rods, all equipped with top-notch Shimano reels.
We offer a wide and fine selection of hard and soft baits (Charlie’s Fishing, SPRO, Chaos Tackle, and much, much more).

When it comes to electronics, you will benefit from the Garmin Livescope with an LVS34 transducer and three Garmin UHD screens. For propulsion, we choose only the best: a Yamaha outboard and a Minn Kota Terrova front roller.

Although we will specifically target Northern Pike, we can give it a go for Perch and/or Zander too on request. Please inform us about what you wish to catch before the day of fishing so the captain can share his thoughts with you.
