Re: Carp Fishing

Oh, they're beautiful. How big do they get?

By the way, what did you do with the catch?

Re: Carp Fishing

The world record carp is around the 38kg mark !

All my catches are weighed, measured, photographed, checked for illnesses or wounds and then gently released back into the lake.

Re: Carp Fishing

Actually Marcus, having re-read this thread, it looks as though you've found yourself some decent waters. I was asking the guys who run the Carp Fishing shop in Thalwill for some advice on where to fish. They reckoned the carp fishing in Switzerland was pretty poor......got to laugh they're running a carp shop!! Anyway, they did say that Pfafikersee was the most productive of the larger lakes around Zurich......don't know whether anyone here has fished it?

If anyones interested, I wouldn't mind pairing up for a session or two come the spring? Not sure where, spent last year struggling to find waters to fish........and didn't have much luck! Plenty of roach and perch out of Lake Zurich but not what I'm after. I'll check out the Lucern water though.....anywhere else you would recommend?

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi Polecat

No i haven't fished the lake near Lucerne yet, but i might try to this coming season.
Do those guys at Thalwil speak any English? Cos my German is rubbish!
If you do fancy fishing a session at the Lucerne lake(it seems to be half way between us both), drop me private message and we can sort out the details!

Re: Carp Fishing

The Crazy Swiss have yet again invented a law to **** off the law abiding citizen.
New animal welfare laws for 2009 have a knock on effect with the fishing laws here in Switzerland.
Unless you are a "Tourist Fisherman" you will now have to take a theroetic exam to get a fishing licence. This licence will of course in most cases only be valid in the Kanton where the exam was taken!
Next, Capture and release is now Illegal! You can no longer fish with the intent to release the fish back into the water. All captures have to be killed. This of course conflicts with the law regarding size limitations. If you don't wish to get caught by the bailiff and fined for killing a fish that you caught and then had to kill that was too big or too small you have to throw the dead fish back in the lake!!!
These are the main points that concern us Carp guys. If you fish for Pike or other fish you need to find out the other points about outlawed treble hooks and so on.
The Carp fishing sport is worth Billions to the UK economy. The Swiss have killed thiers in one fell swoop. Nice.....

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi Marcus

I am in total agreement with you here, although I am not a carp fisherman, fly fishing is my passion, the banning of catch and release is crazy! So many other countires, especially the UK and US, have for years tried and in the most part successfully promoted catch and release to protect wild stocks of trout and salmon.
With regards to the fishing exam, yes it is needed in some kantons and will soon be needed in all kantons. You can still purchase day tickets in some kantons without having passed the exam, although if you want a month or year permit you will have needed to have passed the exam.
As far as I am aware, all hooks must now be barbless as well (I only ever fish barbless hooks).
Here's hoping they will take a look at this crazy law and realise the mistake they have made.

Jon

Re: Carp Fishing

There´s quite a big pond in Pfungen full of carp. You can watch them moving around like torpedoes on the surface. I would guess some are over 10kg. You can fish there as there is evidence of fishing. No idea where you would get a permit as it is rather hidden. I would love to take up fishing again but the Swiss with their obsession for regulating everything by permit gets on my t*ts.
Good luck guys. Wouldn´t mind joining you as an observer. I could watch for hours - almost as good as fishing itself.

Don't be put off by all the rules etc. there are some stunning places to fish here in Switzerland. Lots of lakes are available on day tickets, and with the summer coming what better place than a beautiful mountain lake to spend a day fishing and chilling out

You can get day tickets from the Bird watchers club apparentely. You guys are spoilt for choice there around Zurich and Luzerne !

You're ****ing joking me... why would they bring in such ridiculous laws?

I saw this thread and was immediately interested... i've been fishing since I was a nipper and have a nice two-piece carp rod that's seen only minimal action, and a new Shimano Baitrunner 8000 RE that's never even been used! I may well bring them both back to Zurich and start looking at places to go. Would be good if we could maybe arrange some sort of englishforum fishing trip some time... i'm sure if we all bang heads we can make sense of the various laws we're going to be subject to when we go out.

Re: Carp Fishing

If a trout takes the hook "properly" you can often let it "get away" without even taking it out of the water and frankly I would, if put in that position, provoke a court case on the issue of catch and release. The cost of loosing can't be that high. On the other hand it is cruel if a fish swallows the hook, to be pulled out of the water by his guts and with the low survival rates, if released, killing it is probably the right thing to do - unfortunately its is the smaller ones (and bred trout) that tend to be the least careful about what they eat and how they eat it.

I've just returned from the rivers of the lago maggiore on a four day fly fishing expedition - saw a couple of fish, the extent of it and there are not many in the rivers but you do get them and the scenery is stunning. I haven't figured the system out but I appeared to need a general licence for the lake at €8.52 and, for a subset of rivers from Cannobio to Belgirate, €27. In addition you can go fishing in the national park - the only documentation I saw with professional do's and dont's. It is run by the forestry department and was closed on sat. so I don't know how much it costs but in a place like Italy I would assume the higher the cost the better the chance of fish being there.

A year ticket for Tessin cost 320 CHF with an additional 150 for a particular river - didn't see anything about an exam. A day trip is fairly cheap (SBB and Mobility) but the last train leaves at around 21:00 which may be a little early if you want to catch the evening hatch (unless you live in Basel). Driving is also an option but the return journey is a real hassel with those bloody Germans going home on Sundays and blocking up the tunnels.

Re: Carp Fishing

well the logical conclusion would be that fishermen must have done something wrong somewhere or it is for the good of them fish in the lakes so... they are usually rather reasonable folks though !!!

Don't get me wrong, I didn't say that i would abide by these rules. Even the president of our fishing club advised us to read between the lines and be "more intelligent than certain others"!!
I mean, are they gonna throw you in jail cos the little blighter riggled off your landing mat and back into the lake?!?

I wouldn't put it past them - I can imagine a Rumpole-like figure grasping his lapels and delivering a three hour treaties on gross negligence and unprofessionalism.
