Carplake Katlov, Czech Republic
About Carplake Katlov, Czech Republic
Lake Katlov is one of the Czech Republic’s most prestigious waters and is set in the middle of Bohemia, a place surrounded by sleepy villages and beautiful scenery. This lake has been a long-term project set up by the world famous big fish man, Jakub Vagner. If you are a fan of the National Geographic Channel, you would have seen his impressive TV series, Fish Warrior.
Jakub Vagner has planned and created this entire lake, which is rich in vegetation and holds a vast array of features to target. The lake is around 60 acres in size and the stock is mightily impressive with a good head of 20kg+ carp to be caught that are growing fast and have all been hand picked to ensure the quality of fishing is incredible. The lake has 17 double swims and there are toilets and showers that have been finished to a luxurious standard near most swims.
Located next to the 60 acre Carplake Katlov you will find the intimate and beautiful CatLake Pohan. This is the place to be if you want to catch a fish of a lifetime. With a large stock of catfish including some specimens over 200lb this is quite simply one of the best venues on the planet to catch giant cats!
Within the lake you will find some interesting species such as giant Mandarin catfish, the mighty Wels and several beautiful carp too. The action here can be really hectic and when you’re battling the big cats it can become a serious work out!
You can fish a variety of methods at Catlake Pohan, you can try belly boats and stalk fish whilst afloat in the lake, this can be really exciting. Active lure fishing is one of Jakub’s favourite methods and he will no doubt encourage you to try and catch one of the big cats using lure equipment and you can also use conventional static methods too fishing with live bait or pellets. In addition, you can also use a carp rod to target the carp there, but beware as the carts are always feeding so you could get more than you bargained for so ensure your tackle is stepped up enough to handle this situation.
The lake has an island in the middle, 3 large fishing platforms along the sides and there are boats available for you to use. The average depth is 1 to 2 meters, with a deeper part to around 4 meters in the middle. Trees, snags and water grasses border the lake, in short the perfect ‘hideout’ for catfish in a natural environment.
Upon arrival you can unload and park your car, then you will boat yourself and your kit to the fishing spot. At the meeting point you will find 3 different buildings. The first building is a small tackle shop, the second building is the house of the grounds manager who can see everything nicely from this point and the third building has very clean showers and toilets. On the other side of the lake there is also a shower/toilet facility.
