The 4th Hobie Fishing European Championship powered by Lowrance & C-MAP will be held at the Vinkeveense Plassen in the Netherlands from the 8th till the 10th of September. In 2014, this beautiful lake was the tournament arena for the 4th Hobie Fishing Worlds.

“After visiting France in 2015 and Sweden in 2016, it felt right to go back to the Netherlands. Behind the scenes we are already preparing to make this event the best one yet.”  Gero Priebe says.

Target species


The biggest predator target this tournament. It can grow up to 140 cm and therefore a welcome catch during the tournament. Three of these monsters a day and the title is within reach.

One of the more agressive predatory fish. They can grow up to 50 cm, but despite their size they give a fierce battle. A great fish to catch.
