Wreck fishing

WRECK TOUR

Wreck fishing is a very exciting kind of fishing for many. When you go wreck fishing, you set course for a wreck lying at the bottom of the sea. These ship or aircraft wrecks are a great hiding place for cod, bib, whiting and dab, as they can find ample food and shelter here.

I recently spent a day on board De Mercuur to go wreck fishing. I caught a lot of fish, which I could clean on board and turned into delicious battered fish later on that evening. A perfect day for fishing enthusiasts!

WRECK FISHING WITH A HIGH CATCH RATE

In the spring and autumn in particular, the wrecks are home to large populations of cod, bib and whiting looking for shelter. Because of the high catch rate, wrecks are an ideal place to cast your rod.

WRECK FISHING ON DE MERCUUR

We go wreck fishing on De Mercuur, a 40-metre long, 8-metre wide seaworthy vessel. Thanks to its size, it is a stable, safe ship for wreck fishing. On top of that, the ship meets stringent safety requirements, which allows us to ensure that our trip will end in the port, rather than the bottom of the North Sea. De Mercuur boasts a spacious fishing deck and large fishing tables, on which you can immediately clean your catch. To recuperate after an intensive session of sport fishing, you can head to our large, modern, pleasant canteen. The ship is fully equipped and is guaranteed to give you an unforgettable day of wreck fishing.
