What kind of fish can you catch? 🐟

In our fishing pond or in the IJssel river, you have the chance to catch different types of fish. For example, you could catch a catfish, eel, pike, perch, zander, barbel, asp, minnow, bream or carp. Did you know that the eel can survive outside the water for 24 hours? And that the largest pikes live in North America? The barbel does not give up easily, he will always look for the stones or obstacles on the bottom to try to get off the hook. The catfish is also not an easy catch. The largest catfish ever caught was in a river in Italy, the catfish was 109 inches long and weighed 317 pounds. Who knows – you might me the one to break that record at our holiday park with fishing pond!
