Dutch asp record smashed again

Dutch asp record smashed again

The last few years Holland is more and more getting the status of a ‘small country with big fish’. That’s no surprise as the official BNRZ-record for asp is smashed for the second time this year.

The former record fish, caught by Han van den Eertwegh, measured 85 centimetres (33.5 inch). The new record from Oscar Wissink tops that with two centimetres (87 cm or 34.25 inch). Oscar was fishing the river IJssel and caught his record fish on a hand poured softbait he fished on a tungsten jig head. 

One of the conditions to claim a record is that the fish must be released alive. 

See the full list of BNRZ-records here (please note: not all the claims will be claimed or gratified)

When you are living outside of the Netherlands you can claim your fish for a place in the record books as long as it is caught in the Netherlands.
