Feel like a local seaman aboard ‘Wiesje’, a 10.90-metre long, 3.63-metre wide Aquastar Sports Ranger sport fishing boat that offers fishing trips on the Western Scheldt. People who want to bring their own fishing gear are welcome to do so. The fishing trips are all-inclusive: the only thing you need to bring are warm clothes, the rest is taken care of. Everything you need to have a successful day on the water – rods, fishing traces, lead weights and bait – is provided. If you have no experience, the fishing boat’s experienced crew members will help you set up your rods and hooks in order to fish for cod and whiting. Food, hot chocolate, soup and an alcoholic drink are included, all at an attractive all-in price.
Fishing excursions are a great way to spend the day for seasoned sailors as well as those new to the sport.
