Go fishing out at sea and from the piers

Read more about great fishing spots below. IJmuiden aan Zee offers plenty of options to go fishing out at sea or from the piers. At present you don’t need a permit for fishing from the piers, but it is still possible to purchase a fishing pass for other coastal regions (zeeVISpas). A permit (vispas) is always required for freshwater fishing.

Visit the Sportvisserij Nederland website (in Dutch) for more information about permits and fishing in the Netherlands in general.
