About Vinkeveen – Campingpod XL, Netherlands
The Campingpod XL is a wooden accommodation right on the water at the head of one of the headlands of the Vinkeveense Plassen. Ideal for the carp angler who wants more luxury, but still wants to enjoy the outdoors and the adventure! The Campingpod is supplied with power and light, useful for charging your phone, fish finder, batteries or other devices. In addition, there is a refrigerator and a stove. The front is equipped with a sail so that you can sit out of the wind, if necessary.
Because you are at the head of a headland you have the large water right in front of you. You have plenty of space to find interesting sites. There are spots between the weeds, but also large hard mussel plateaus. The depth varies between 3 and 6 meters.
The Vinkeveense Plassen are three contiguous ponds with a total of 1000 hectares of crystal clear water. In the past peat bogs were extracted, which is why all sorts of headlands and islets have been created. You will find deep parts, shallow parts, overhanging trees, lily fields, large pieces strewn with weeds and gigantic plateaus strewn with mussel beds.
De Vinkeveense Plassen
The stock of fish is very diverse. In addition to scaly carp, mirror carp and grass carp, you will also find a large stock of roach, bream, tench, perch, pike and zander on the Vinkeveense Plassen. It is absolutely not easy water, partly due to the vegetation, lobsters and the clear water.
It is very important that you spend enough time looking for swims where you can best put the bait. A water viewer (scope) is certainly a useful tool that should not be missing in the equipment. This way you can see exactly where your bait will be placed. Precisely in that bare spot between the weeds, or on the edge of the mussel bed under the protruding tree.
It can be quite busy in the summer with boats that come and go, especially with good weather! It is best to explain the lines at the quieter moments. Do not forget to bring a top lead because that is a must for recreation. Spectacular fight Yet there is nothing better to experience a fight on the big water.
Usually ancient and extremely strong scale and mirror carp that demand the utmost from your rod. With your boat behind the fish to prevent it from becoming trapped. The rod over the edge of the boat with the top into the water with a slow tapping drag. The boat moves with the hard-fighting fish! From the depth you see the first shadow of your opponent appear.
The image of that powerhouse that has been pulling you across the water for 10 minutes or more becomes increasingly clear. Until the fish finally gives in and slowly slides over the net cord. A fantastic adventure !! That is the reward of a successful fishing session at the Vinkeveense Plassen.
