Re: Carp Fishing

I have spoken to a few Swiss fly fisherman and they also think it's crazy!!
Intersting times ahead, there maybe no sensible fishermen left as we'll all be singing the jail house blues

Tight lines

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

Jon
Are you fishing bankside or belly-boat? What is your equipment? A buddy of mine did an extensive survey - his missus bought him a belly-boat for his birthday and there are a few lakes that do not allow boats proper but do allow belly-boats.

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi HTD

I fish from the banks. There was an article in a Swiss fishing magazine a couple of years ago with a list of lakes stating whether a belly-boat was allowed, unfortunately I no longer have the magazine

Petri Heil,

a buddy of mine might still have it - I'll see if he can fax me a copy of the article. Hardly using a 9'/5wgt from the banks? I see Loop offers an 11'/3wgt specifically mentioning Alpine lakes - being a river man myself haven't really been tempted on the lakes but bought a stiff 10'/7wgt for sea trout trip to Denmark last month so might try it out a lake. A shooting head is hardly the right weapon is it?

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.
This was already being talked about, so i guess the more the merrier!

We had talked about going to this Rotsee near Luzern. Not so sure now with these new laws. I suppose we could claim ignorance and "Sorry, we're British" to any bailiff !!

Re: Carp Fishing

oh c'mon now Richdog, have I stepped on your toes or something say ... (haven't had a groaner for awhile, are you replacing my dear friend peachy huh, gosh I miss him ... )

that law came surely into being for a good reason. maybe it is silly maybe it isn't. time to go see my bro who has been a fisherman himself for many years and in charge of a club too and have a chat with him !!!

Re: Carp Fishing

Regarding catch & release there are some discussions in a Swiss fisher's forum for those who know German:

http://www.petri-heil.ch/forum/showthread.php?t=201
http://www.petri-heil.ch/forum/showthread.php?t=105

It's one of the points of the new animal protection law the fisher's association disagrees with. Most admit it's mostly unenforceable.

Back on topic: You still can release your carp if it's not long enough

No toes stepped on at all... I just don't see the point in posting inane babble in a specific carp fishing thread agreeing with some law when you have no idea why or what you're agreeing with, other than: "must be there for a good reason", which is nonsense. Laws definately aren't always sensible, and this one even more so. Just seems like posting for postings' sake.

Re: Carp Fishing

HI all,

I'm new to the forum but have been in Basel since '01 and on a mission to find good carp fishing ever since. As I'm now just across the border in the Alsance to date I have found two lakes that I have fished and caught from: Etang de Courtavon and Etang de Morshwiller. Both can be fished once you've bought a regional license (AAPPMA - regional association membership too), the former for free and the latter on a day tocket for 10-15 euros. The largest I've had is around 25lb (common) and plenty of smaller 'stockies' - the restock each year as so many are taken for the table.
I also have on my list a couple of etangs up near Rheiningue I think it is - got that advice from the Nilufar pet / fishing shop near St Louis (where you can also buy your license and loads of gear, bait etc.
The rivers near Basel also contain huge carp (50lb plus) but you will need to pre-bait for a few days and unfortunately I don't have the time for that but would love to give it a go one day.
So, I hope that gets some comments as I'd also like to know if anyone else knows of other lakes in the Basel/Alsace region or would appreciate some company one day.
cheers and tight lines!
P.S. the new anti-catch-and-release rules are utter nonsense. Fish can be returned perfectly unharmed and in the case of carp go on to live for decades despite multiple captures. This is what the whole commercial carp fishing scene in UK and France is built upon. Fortunately all good anglers will completely ignore it and return the fish for another day and someone else to have the pleasure of catching.

Re: Carp Fishing

To all carp fishermen

I know this isn't in Switzerland, but a friend of mine from the UK has recently returned from a carp fishing trip in France and says this place is great. It's managed by an English guy, Ron

http://www.castlelakes.co.uk/

Contact details are
janetwailes@hotmail.com

Phone 0033 633 016308

I've never been there and carp fishing isn't for me, but I thought some of you may be interested.

It's catch and release of course

Cheers

Jon

Hi MSB1 (for lack of a first name!)

Where are these lakes? Could you give me a town near to where they are?

If they're in the Audincourt, Altkirch region, i'd be interested in tagging along with you one day.

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi Marcus

My friend has been twice now and thinks it's great, and believe me, for him to travel outside the UK for anything it must be good

Cheers

Jon

Re: Carp Fishing

Hi Marcus, didn't see if anyone told you but the guys in Thalwil (or at least one of them) do speak English, I had a very interesting chat with them a few days ago about the new rules, tests and such like.
