Catfish with clonk and lure

Catfish with clonk and lure

Catfish (or wells) with clonk and spinning

Catfish is one of the biggest fish species in Europe and a many fishermen are burning by desire to fight with two meter big monster… The fishing for catfish is considered as quite difficult due to some reasons. Primarily this is a night fish species, which activity increases in the night, when the most part of anglers sleeping. Furthermore there is a prohibition to fish during the night in the Czech republic (in the summer from midnight till 4 am). The second reason is quite expensive and hard equipment including stable fishing boat. And finally the third reasons is an absence of basic knowledge of this fish behavior.

Why I provide this kind of fishing guide service if the fishing for catfish is so difficult?
As I wrote in the header of this article my favorite fishing methods for a catfish are spin fishing and clonk. Both of them can practice during the day during warm and humid days of summer and early autumn. Of course the average size of “monsters” is a little bit smaller, however the fish around 10 or 20 kilos is also a great fighter…

What is the price for catfish fishing?

spin fishing with lure – 100 euro

fishing from the boat with clonk – 190 euro

fishing license for one day – 30 euro

It’s possible to organize a big catfish tour for a few days, please ask me in email.

The high season as I just mentioned above start in the middle of July and finish after first freezing in the night in the late fall. So, you’re welcome to join me anytime during these few months 🙂

      Hi, Matt!
      Good question 🙂 Generally I can say yes, because it’s not prohibited by fishing rules. However You should definitely get a fishing license for such a fishing trip and also consider noise from fishing with clonk after 10 p.m. in case You are going to try it in the very center of Prague. When are You going to visit Prague?
