Fishing in the Danube


Gret fishing experience in the river Danube, at the town Štúrovo in Slovakia (180 km far from Bratislava). In the big Danube you will fish in free nature and you would have a chance to catch local small sterlet "Acipenser ruthenus".

In summer 2015 I was very pleased to organize a trip for one of the most enthusiastic fishermen in the world - Mr. Steven Wozniak from the USA. His fishing is based on hunting different species - he has caught over 1400 (See his fishing experience in the Slovakian side of the Danube, published in his blog: 1000fish.wordpress.com).

Although Steve did not catch in the Danube his desired Acipenser ruthenus or Huso huso, according to his saying, his trip was very successful. He ended up his trip with three new species - the striped rurffe, Gymnocephalus schraetzer,  the Danube bream, Ballerus sapa, and the streber, Zingel streber. This takes his total to 1458 species. Slovakia was his 86th country where he caught a fish.

Additionally, he will submite two world record applications to the IGFA. The first is for a 10 pound Wels on 4 pound line, the second was for a white bream, Blicca bkoerka, of 1.75 pounds. If approved, these records would be (after fishing in Slovakia in August 1-3, 2015) his 122nd and 123rd records.
