Sportfishermen do not come in Bergen aan Zee empty-handed at home! It could be fished from a boat at sea or from the beach. Every angler finds a suitable place. And the fish bites well. Eel, perch or trout, but also whiting, dab or sole are richely present in the water.
Sport fishing is connected to certain regulations. To float into the water you need next to the rural sport angling permit, depending on the kind of fishing water and the administrator, a permit: http://www.sportvisserijnederland.nl/vispas/english/.
Sea fishery is free. In the fishing zone, the coastal waters and the sea area you need for fishing with rods no fishing permit. In the coastal waters there is a limitation of (maximum) two fishing rods. Fishing with a bob or smelt rig is in the coastal water also free, provided that the fishing law is rested with the state. If someone else owns the fishing law than a permit for bob or smelt rig is obliged.
• Summer (01 May – 01 October): Angling with individual fishing tackle is only permitted on recreational beaches.
• Winter (01 October – 01 May): Angling with individual fishing tackle is permitted on all beaches. Fishing with fixed fishing gear is only permitted between the 36.5 and 39.5 km, and between the 40.25 and 41.0 km beach markers.
To sport fishing in the sea from the beach you will not need a license. To fish in lakes (and other waterways) is a license and a fishing license required. These are available in the tourist office.
So even though sport fishing from the beach is allowed throughout the year, one thing remains; keep account of each other! Be careful when inserting your rod to the other beach and sea users.
