Angler’s guide - Lake Balaton

Introduction

The fish catch record book is a document regulated by the Law of Fishing and it has to be issued together with the area licence by the organization entitled to fish on the particular water.

The fish catch record book is numbered and it has got the same form for anglers having either yearly or day fishing licence.

The aim of the fish catch record book is – besides the record of caught fish – to have more detailed information about caught fish and anglers’ habits on Lake Balaton.

Moreover, the fish catch record book helps fishing guards’ job.

We know that keeping records in the fish catch record book is an extra task for anglers. However, we hope that it does not cause a problem for honest anglers.

Please read the instructions carefully before recording the data.

Thank you for your help and understanding.

FISHING REGULATIONS ON LAKE BALATON

    Rules of boilie fishing on Lake Balaton

    (Recommendation)

    Fishing rules of Balaton must be followed by person, who has bought a “behúzós területi jegy”,a special area ticket for carry in/drop the rig angling method (annual, weekly or 72 hours ticket) furthermore he has to comply with the 27nth point of the above mentioned rules detailed hereinafter.

    Violence of this rule is observed as offending the fishing rules of Balaton and may conclude in withdrawal of your local ticket and banning you from the possibility to purchase local tickets. Our aim is to set clear rules and well-founded circumstances of boilie fishing, and above that to protect enormous carp, which possess unique natural value in a much more efficient way than previously. We also try to make an effort to prevent these huge carp from migrating and being merchandised. The aforementioned aims call for cooperation among the fishermen in this sector, thus a common ground has been built based on our discussions with them to establish the details of practicing this method.

    1.General regulations

    1.1. The aim of boilie fishing is to catch, to measure, and to take a photo of non-predatory fish, then releasing them into the water in a humane way.

    1.2. By “behúzós horgászat” (here referred to as boilie fishing) we mean the method which enables the angler to deliver the rig into the water with the help of legal vehicles (e.g. boat, bait boat) or to take his rig into the water by swimming or walking without throwing any parts of it, then he’s allowed to wait for the bite on the shore or on the gang-board which is linked to the shore. Walking and casting your rig into the water is also regarded as “behúzós horgászat” (boilie) fishing, until the average water level of Lake Balaton is above 80 cm (www.hydroinfo.hu).

    1.3. An angler with a “behúzós jegy” (boilie fishing ticket) is to follow the rules of humane treatment in the case of each and every fish that is caught based on the above mentioned principles.

    1.4.1. Organizations (e.g. local governments, camp-sites), which possess or operate real estate on the shore are entitled to mark territories on their own shore for boilie fishing. On these territories appointments are available on boiliebalaton.hu website. From the main page of boiliebalaton.hu you can reach the booking system. The booking system is open and available for everybody.

    1.4.2. Owners of the lakeside real estates – in case that they have the necessary area ticket – can fish using the carry in/drop the rig method on their property, but they must comply with a notification commitment. Landlords and landladies who have registered to catch fish legally have the right to let their guests use their territories, although landlords and landladies are also liable for notifying about boilie fishing, and ensure that their guests possess tickets in every case. They are to notify about the exact location (number, street) with GPS coordinates as well as about the exact date and time of the fishing on the website which can be reached from the main page of boiliebalaton.hu. Violating the rules will conclude in initiating a legal process against the person who has offended the regulations and boilie fishing will not be permitted on the area as a consequence. Booking on the above mentioned properties – according to the intention of landlord or landlady – is primarily private. However they can be part of open booking system according to Owners of properties on the shore who have registered to catch fish legally and have fulfilled the aforementioned responsibilities, hereby contribute for control authorities to approach the fishing location at a time agreed in advance via the landlord’s or landlady’s property.
