Spinning and lure fishing

Spinning and lure fishing

Fishing for freshwater predators: pike, perch, chub etc..

Are you a protagonist of lure fishing?
Great! There are not so many countries in Europe with such a quantity of fish species as Czech republic. For example, during only on morning on Vltava or Elba rivers you can catch perch, chub, pike, asp, pikeperch, catfish and barbel… Of course it is necessary to take a proper lure or plug and know the spot as well as use a good fishing technique, –that’s why people hire a fishing guide 😉

Fish species You can expect to catch.

Asp (Aspius aspius)
Catfish (Silurus glanis)
Chub (Squalius cephalus)
Perch (Perca fluviatilis)
Pike (Esox lucius)
Zander (Sander lucioperca)
Barbel (Barbus barbus)
Ide (Leuciscus idus)


What you can expect & how much does it cost?.

fishing guide for one day – 150 euro

one day fishing license – 30 euro

transfer to the fishing spot – depends on a distance, approx.40-50 euro

The whole trip can cost a 220 euro for one person (incl. transfer, tackle hire, fishing permit and guide service). For two person such a trip would cost 350 euro with the same conditions. You can order a hot lunch, it would cost just 15 euro per person.

Here is an example of such a trip:

  • 6am – meeting at the hotel, transfer to the fishing place (up to one hour driving)
  • 7:00 to 16:30 – fishing on different “hot spots”
  • 17:00 – transfer back to Prague with arriving around 6pm.

Important notice for lure fishing: if You don’t want to fish on private lake with stocked fish and prefer the wild river or lake, You will need a fishing license issued by Czech Fishing Union together with fishing ticket. I can prepare this license for You in forward. Please, contact me as soon as You will make decision to fish in Czech republic.

REPORTS from some of recent bait fishing trips:

    I am over from Australia on holiday currently in hungry but soon to be in the Czech republic and would like to know if it’s possible to organise a pike fishing trip at such short notice.
    Many thanks

      Hello, Sam!
      Thank You for inquiry. To tell You the truth now is not a good season for pike, because this fish prefer colder water. Good fishing for this predator can happen during early morning hours or rainy day with lower temperature.
      Summer months are great for chub, barbel and perch if we talk about whole–day fishing with lure or plug, which is even better. Chub furious bites You will remember for a long time as well as strength of barbel. Anyway if You want to catch a pike, I can manage it.

    interested in fishing in Prague for 1/2 day, Jul 11-13, 2019

    from my site, you will find I do mostly spin fishing, though have done quite a bit of fly. Would bring spin gear — not fly

    Wish to fish as close to Prague as possible (accessible by tram/metro …) My audience looks for easy, inexpensive locations.

      Hello, Archie!

      July is a great month mainly for perch, catfish and asp, though the real result depends on the weather. Drop me a line a month forward on my email and we will manage Your fishing trip.

      Regards from Prague!
