Sportfishing

vissen

Sportfishermen do not come in Blankenberge empty-handed at home! It could be fished from a boat at sea, from the beach or breakwater, along a canal - or brook - bank, in small ponds and - why not - just into town. Every angler finds a suitable place. And the fish bites well. At diverse locations there are especially for sportfishermen parking spaces and angling places installed, and also for disabled people. In the angling store around the corner you find fishing tackle (also to let) and fish bait, and you could get information over there.
