At this time we are working like manics on, a platform with awesome and unique holiday rentals only. Especially and have great accommodations for anglers. Just imagine what it’s like to be fishing from a houseboat or stay at lighthouse right on the edge of superb fishing grouds! The downside is that we have limited time to go out fishing with Fishing Amsterdam. However, I’m glad to recommend Steef Meijers who owns the website Just contact him via the site and ask for availability.

Share, learn, love to fish

“Fishing is not just a hobby. For me fishing is a way of life”, says fishing guide Juul. “It’s a lifestyle that made want to share the love for fishing with as many people as possible. Guiding my clients  on the water is a great way  of doing that. Putting a fishing app on the market that helps fishermen to share their passion and knowledge is another way. That’s why we are proud to present the upcomming release of MyCatch – My World of Fishing!”

Zander, walleyes big brother

There’s simply no area in the world with such an abundant zander population as Amsterdam. We don’t call our beloved city the Zander Capital of the world. For those who don’t know yet: the zander (Stizostedion lucioperca) is quite similar to the American walleye (Sander vitreus) but then just bigger and, according to a lot of American fishermen also stronger.

Pike and perch

Apart from the famous zander our waters offer a great population of other fishing species. One of the most poplar species that we target is the perch. This fish is the XXL version of the American yellow perch. Fish over 3 lb have been recorded at Fishing Amsterdam.

Even bigger is the Northern pike. Just like the muskie it’s not a fish that is caught in high numbers, but the size makes up for that easily. Pike over 15 lb are no exception.

Except great zander and pike, we also target really fat perch!

8 and 5 hour fishing trips

On our standard full day fishing trips we go out for 8 hours, but we also provide 4-hour trips. We have all the required fishing tackle on board and licenses can be purchased on the day of fishing. On the full day trips we offer a great lunch, coffee and soft drinks.

Rent a houseboat in Amsterdam

If you come to fish in Amsterdam, there is no better place to stay then a genuine houseboat. We can recommend to visit to find one of the best houseboat rentals in Amsterdam. Not only can you enjoy fishing from your window for perch and zander, also we offer the service to pick you up for free at any houseboat in Amsterdam. The reason why we can advice to rent a houseboat, is that we live on a floating home ourselves. Together with my wife and son we enjoy the reflection of the water on the ceiling, the ducks swimming by and just the idea that we could not be be closer to our beloved fish every day. And if you’re planning to live in Amsterdam permanently, you should really consider a long term houseboat rental in Amsterdam.
