The majority of our catfishing is done from the riverbank with your guide using the boat to position your baits in the river. We find this method far more successful than boat fishing as the swim is free from disturbance so you can then sit back in the sun and enjoy the surroundings and wildlife.
All Catfish tackle is supplied including all terminal tackle for catching these huge Catfish and you will have an experienced Catfishing guide with a boat for his use during your entire stay with us, you have upto 18 hours fishing per day available to you fully guided. Your food and drinks can be delivered to the river bank by your guide whilst you are fishing or if you prefer, you can cook food in you apartment or cook on the bank where permitted on gas burners or go to one of the local bars or restaurants. Cooler boxes are provided to keep your drinks cold and Thermos flasks are available on request. We also provide all fishing licence’s and day tickets. All you need to bring with you is a head torch and your camera.
Not all members of one group have to fish for Catfish only. If one or more of the group want to also fish for Carp, then they can book the mixed Carp/Catfish tour.
Bait is available from us – genuine Halibut pellets, live bait Eels and small Carp when available and permitted. The price of your bait requirements will vary depending on the type of fishing producing the best results at the time of your arrival, the amount of time you spend fishing and the amount of fish caught. An estimated price of the bait can be given on request and we ask that you pay an agreed price at the start of the week for the bait that you intend to use then to settle in full at the end of your weeks fishing when your guide calculates the amount of bait actually used. You can ask your guide at any time throughout the week about the amount of bait that you have used so you are aware of the cost at all times.
Bait costs for one weeks cat fishing is usually between €80 to €100 depending on the amount of hours fished and catfish caught.
