Paradise Lake | Carp Fishing | Hungary

Overview

Tour code: HUN001

Carp fishing in Hungary is fast becoming the new France with the lakes seeing more and more anglers venturing from overseas in search of new waters with huge hard fighting Carp of many different sizes. Everybody has heard of the new Carp world record and at 105LB caught recently from a lake in Hungary, making this fine country stand head and shoulders above places such as France. With a lot of the lakes in Hungary being hardly fished it is no wonder people are venturing there in search of quieter waters away from the rat races of other European venues. As the title of this holiday explains, we would like to welcome you to your very own piece of Paradise in the form of this 44 acre lake with 7 Islands and many bars running along the middle. There are only 15 swims on this lake so you will get a nice amount of water to fish and work.

Location

You will be fishing the waters of  Hungary, Paradise Lake is located 230km East of  Budapest. Your lakeside log cabin is just 5 metres away from your own private swim and comes complete with your own boat and a Yamaha M18 Electric engine with charger. Your cabin comes fully equipped with two bunk beds, a fridge to keep your food and beers cool and a modern microwave. If the evening temperature drops then these cabins come with full heating and if the days are hot we supply you with air-conditioning (extra charge).

Fishing

The lakes stocking is impressive as we have Carp over 60LB’s with the lake record being caught in 2012 at 62LB’s. There are also 120+ carp between 40 & 45LB  and about 30 Carp over 45LB and there are also lots of Grass Carp. You will be fishing for these Carp using normal Carp fishing methods including ledgering with bottom baits using a wide variety of rigs, along with ledgering you can also fish using Zigs and surface fishing methods if they are up in the layers. These carp reach large sizes so the tackle that is provided is well up to the job, the only thing that you have to take is your end tackle including your favourite rigs.

Other Activities

There is also a playground, 24-hour security service, hot water showers, toilet and a snack bar. The area is really clean, well organised and the grass is cut regularly. There is a restaurant nearby that you can order food from at very reasonable prices and they will even deliver to your swim so you do not have to stop fishing if you get hungry, however, there is a grocery shop not far from the lake. If you want to have a break in your fishing you can visit the nearby zoo or the wellness spa. This really is a Carp fishing holiday that will appeal to single travellers or families who want a week away.
