Funky Fishing Cabin - Amsterdam City Centre

For my 12th birthday I got a weekend of fishing in Amsterdam. Together with my father, we slept on this houseboat and that was super cool. We fished a lot from the shore and caught many zanders in the early morning. The biggest was also my personal record: 72 centimeters long !!! The landlord gave us good tips and also gave some lures. Together with my father, we caught more than 50 fish this weekend, I think. Thanks for the great weekend!

Street Fishermans' Paradise Amsterdam

We stayed on this houseboat during our first street fishing trip to Amsterdam. The place is really nice and clean, and very suitable for friends since there are three separate beds  (one double and two singles). The host was so nice to show us where to fish and he did a great job. The first night we all caught our first Amsterdam Zander with the dropshot and the next morning (a bit hungover but fishing anyway) we went into the city. This was really cool...

We know what anglers want

Bookafishingcabin.com is co-founded by Juul Steyn, an avid angler with an impressive track record when it comes to fishing. As a teenager he competed in the World Championships Coarse Angling for the Dutch National Team, and successively he was editor and chief editor of the two largest sport fishing magazines in The Netherlands. Over the last two decades, he has been a fishing guide in Amsterdam and traveled the world to catch the most challenging fish he could find. From arapaima, piraiba and peacock bass in the Amazon rain forest to Giant Trevally and Spanish Mackerel in Papua New Guinea, massive catfish in Kazakhstan, and impressive halibuts in Norway.

During these fishing holidays, he learned the ropes when it comes to choosing the right accommodation. From a simple tent on a deserted beach in Papua to a high-end fishing chalet in Canada and everything in between.

Juul: "I look forward to using all the experience and knowledge about fishing holidays to create the ultimate booking platform for sport fishermen around the world. We know what anglers want, and our team will make sure that you get it!"

Catch more and bigger fish in Norway with soft baits 

Catch more and bigger fish in Norway with soft baits 

For decades the favorite bait for catching cod in Norway has been the pilker (or 'pirk'). Quite understandable since it is easy to fish, also in deeper water and strong currents, and it catches a lot of fish for sure. But we got some interesting news for you: changing to lighter gear and choosing soft baits instead of pirks will result in more and bigger fish. Juul Steyn, co-founder and Norway-expert, shares his knowledge with you so you can improve your catches too. Get ready to catch more and bigger cod and coalfish than you ever imagined possible.   By Juul Steyn / Bookafishingcabin.com   Catching a coalfish of this size is a dream for many anglers. Switch to soft baits and make it happen! (photo: Roel Trum)   Let me get one thing straight first: pilkers are very effective for sure. Especially cod is easily attracted by this swinging and shining metal. Another plus for pilkers/pirks is that anyone can fish this bait, no experience required. Just drop the pilker, let it sink until i
