On 1 January, the closed season for (until April 30) and Pike (until 31 May) in Berlin has begun again. In the Berlin State Fishery Regulation (LFischO), it also means fishing (3) in § 18:
“Bait fish sinks and hand fishing for catching of predatory fish may not be from January 1 to April 30 of each year.”
So what can you do as Berlin predatory fish anglers, if you would like to wait for the next fishing experience on the water No 4 months?
1 bass fishing with the coarse fishing
Exact reading the definition for predator baits in § 18 fishing (2) the LFischO notice that invertebrates bait (Nightcrawlers for example) and lures that are smaller than 2 cm, are not regarded as predatory fish bait:
“In the exercise of fishing using bait fish vertebrate or cancer lures or parts of these (bait of scraps of) or lures that have a total length of more than 2 cm only a bait per hand fishing is allowed; These are considered predatory fish bait.”
And in the official Flyer “Real fish” by the fisheries Office in Berlin is clearly on page 9:
“With lures, whose total length is not more than 2 cm, bass can be caught as all year round with the coarse fishing.”
If one uses no predatory fish bait, fishing tackle is regarded as coarse fishing and so perch, which have no closed season, be fish from January 1st until April 30th may be. Titled “Perch fishing Coarse fishing”, there will be an extra contribution shortly, where possible bait and techniques are presented.
- Coarse fishing
As an alternative you can as a predatory fish anglers also use these four months, to broaden his horizons a bit and in Berlin devoted to the angling. Even if I angle personally almost exclusively on fish, I must admit that as a carp can be quite an exciting target fish.
- predatory fishing in Brandenburg
The Länder Brandenburg goes for Pike from February 1 to March 31 (two months shorter than in Berlin), for Zander from April 1 to May 31 (three months shorter than in Berlin), a “predator ban” like in Berlin there in no time.
- 2 fishing bans, bans, at least (2) of the fisheries regulations of Brandenburg (BbgFischO) says:
“It is forbidden in the plant of called fish, lamprey -, crustaceans and mollusk species (hereinafter referred to as fish) during the closed season, or when it reaches the minimum does not have, to re-adjust, deliberately to catch them or kill.”
A trip to Brandenburg is always an interesting option especially in the period of the Berlin predator bait ban by the other legislation than in Berlin and the relatively short distances.
- Predator fishing in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania
In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, there is no closed season prescribed by law for Pike and Zander in inland waters. A “predator bait ban” as in Berlin does not include also the law. In coastal waters is the closed season for Pike from March 1st until April 30th and for walleye from April 23 to May 22. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is also incredibly good fishing waters in addition to the less strict laws and is absolutely recommended for day trips. Here at WACOSTYLISH you can get more different fishing skills.
As I write this from the perspective of a Berlin anglers and there are already very many mentioned possibilities, not I turn here to other federal States. There is a good overview of the bans in all federal States with net fishing and the guys close to the fish.
All information in this post refer to the applicable in the respective Federal State based on law. It is however important to note that the water regulations can be more stringent as dictated by the law. Look so when purchasing a fishing map exactly to what the regulations are.
In addition, it is important to obey not only the bare laws, but to act in their meaning. If you have an a fish despite compliance with the legal and water-specific framework conditions, it is not only quickly and gently roll back, but also the selected kind of bait, thoroughly to reconsider the fishing techniques and fishing place and, if necessary, to change. Because it comes in keeping the closed season not only to kill a fish, but also to ensuring the uninterrupted reproduction of animals, by completely left alone.
I hope that I could give a few useful tips for the period from 1 January to 30 April the one or the other Berlin predator angler with this post. There are many ways to pursue a favorite hobby also in this period, unless it is held not by storms, frozen rings or the like of which in any case.
We are just planning the leak me most harsh Länder Tour, in the I about once a week would drive from January until April to Brandenburg or Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. I will have free every time a few places and take like students from Berlin. There are the dates to register soon on facebook.
