Fishing on the Lake Garda

A community report by KAZ

Dear followers of most beautiful passion of the world,

Once again, it was time for a vacation. The Lake Garda in Northern Italy is a holiday destination that is very popular in Europe. Sun, beautiful beaches and good food. Immediately, of course, the idea that you can catch fish certainly also on a such a large and diverse body of water comes every angler.

From some poor articles in the worldwide web through the fishing on Lake Garda, one learns that there is a healthy population of black bass. However, you will find hardly any useful information that bring one closer to the target fish, which you would like to come during his holiday on the bottom. Therefore I would like to introduce you my experiences that I could make on Lake Garda, here. Advance, far exceeded my expectations.

The fishing licence

There are three different regions around Lake Garda. This section should provide a guidance how to get the fishing license in the Veneto region for tourists. That the Veneto region with the cities is a good Black Sea bass fishery Lazise, Cisano and Bardolino, confirmed advance ever by the fact that here the Italian black bass Championship took place in the September 2016, and countless expensive Bassboats in shallow water areas were.

You can get the license for Veneto in tourist information offices (E.g.: Vicolo Cieco Arsenale, 11 37017 Lazise), sometimes also at the information on campsites. In the license you must then enter the name, home address and date of birth in both sections. Occasionally, the local police checked the license.  With the completed license then go to the post (for example: via Francesco Feliciano Scolari, 32, 37017 Lazise). You can see this on a yellow shield with the blue letter PI. Here it shows the completed fishing license and will pay €15.50. Thus, the 30 days in Veneto fishing is allowed. Please note, the opening hours of the post are because it includes most Saturday at 12:30 and only re-opens Monday. You can fish in some waters in whole Veneto with the license. According to a woman at the tourist information in a part of the Po, it flows through Veneto. However, there are also a few exceptions. You can get more detailed information about certainly in the two fishing shops in Affi (via S. Pieretto, 29, 37010 affi) and Peschiera del Garda (via Venezia, 9, 37019 Peschiera del Garda)

It is recommended for all to tackle what is required from home to take. The selection in the two local fishing shops is very limited.

The tackle

I give you my tackle that I packed and I came very fine, as an example.

A 2, 11 m long bass rod with a casting weight of 3.5-21 g. It is a 2500 role with 0, 13mm of diameter braided cord and 1, 5 m with 0, 25mm Ø fluorocarbon before turned on. The rod should have a fast blank as they are used on our native perch, black bass quickly biting and just as soon spit out the bait if the hoax is blown.

Due to the weed floating around and the Greens at the base, it was only possible to fish rigs with Offsethaken. May went also spinners or fishing with Weedguard. What is however not necessary, as the bass on 7-10cm pop creature baits and lures that you can hardly believe it. Because the Lake has very clear water, muted, natural bait decors have proven themselves.

It has proved feasible, to fish to find the black bass with lures about 7cm. As soon as you get bites of smaller black bass, you can switch to larger bait about 10 cm to outwit the thicker specimens. However, small baits also at black bass fishing are no exclusion criteria for big fish.

Due to the strong fluctuations of the swells and wind strength cartridge leads must be between 5 and 15 g. The lure proved to be still often considered difficult because of the wind, the waves and of the herb.

Also a Pike pole with 2, 40 m, 15-60 g casting weight, is there a 3000 role with 0, 18 mm of diameter braided cord and some steel leaders useful, you can outsmart Pike in Malcesine, 34 km north of Lazise. Fishing on the steep sloping edges, which are found in this part of Lake Garda, is also not easy. It is important to present rubber fish between 10 and 20 cm with 15-20 g Jigköpfen at the proper depth. You should fish in different depths and once the first contact of the fish is this depth as a guide. A Hakenlösezange, as well as some fear triplets should also in the luggage.

Fishing from the shore promenade, a landing net mandatory is necessary, to the fish-friendly.

When fishing from the shore promenade a landing net is compelling necessary, to gently land the fish.

The spots

Basically, all spots with a depth of 1-4m, which grows much herb at the base suitable for Smallmouth Bass. There, the Smallmouth are and go on the hunt. Can often be seen, how it robs on the surface. Also loose seaweed that floats on the surface, is an indicator of a good spot. My success spots were on the waterfront promenade in Lazise, which bring character to strong Streetfishing and spots around Cisano. Due to the presence of the pros of the Italian black bass Championship, which drifted very close along the shore with their Bassboats, it was very quickly clear that these spots should bring fish. Their successes can be seen by the way by following this link on Facebook.

One should pay attention on signs. These are often at ports which unfortunately does not represent the absolute hotspots but may be fished.

It is also allowed to fish from a boat. Boats must be moved free of licence up to 40hp on Lake Garda

The best time

Due to the slightly lower prices of camping sites is recommended, to arrive to the low season in September. This was probably the right time to adjust the black bass. Noon turned out to be the best bite time. But basically you start all day as long as it’s bright and outsmart themselves the Visual predator. It is said that black bass can see very well and far. Fishing is also only one hour before until one hour after sunset allows. Exception is eel fishing.

Fish contact

As already mentioned, the bites are very smart. A quick right off the bat is essential in most cases. In a few cases, hardly a bite is felt or it is suspected contact with the waves around floating seaweed. As a precaution nevertheless put the right off the bat. If the fish but then hangs, this makes a big alarm. Because Smallmouth are outstanding fighters known for their size. They perform jumps as you know them by salmonids and try to shake the hook from its mouth. This should include immediately voltage, otherwise the hook and bait from the wide mouth fly.

Other species of fish

Lake Garda has, as mentioned under “Tackle”, also a good Pike stock on. The fish look slightly different than our Pike, have a really interesting pattern. Occasionally go also perch as bycatch when fishing for Smallmouth Bass on the hook. From the twilight can out-flanked also eels that can be intercepted in September on their way to the Sargasso Sea on the outflow of the Lake Garda, the Mincio, probably just at present. The large number of stalking fishermen in the area from Peschiera del Garda is also a good stock of white fish and CARP. The Garda lake trout can be fished in addition to other salmonids in the northern part of the Lake is a genus of its own.

Summary

Who would like to spend your holiday with family or friend, and still pursue his hobby, can experience true star hours for little money when fishing for Smallmouth Bass on Lake Garda. A major concern of mine is that the fish gently treated and (if you start multiple) at least partly be reset, so that loss of fishing on Lake Garda in the future not to appeal.

Once again summarised the main points:

  • Schnelle bass rod up to 21 g casting weight, 2500 role, 0, 13 mm braided cord, 1.5 m 0, 25 mm Ø fluorocarbon before turned on
  • Finesse rig
  • Offsethaken, rubber fish and creature baits, 7-10cm, cartridge leads 5-15 g
  • Spots search with herbaceous vegetation, seaweed
