Hi Placebo,
I live in Holland and we're going to visit Malta & Gozo in about 2 weeks. Surfing the Internet for info on fishing on Gozo, I was happy to find this forum. I would never have guessed that I was going to give advise about fishing in Holland here. I hope that my knowledge of the English language is good enough for you to understand me. Anyway, here is some Dutch(saltwater-)info.

About the kinds of fish:
To give you an idea of the catchable species (and times in the year to catch them) you might like the following link:
http://home.planet.nl/~jon73347/vangstkalender.html
I'am afraid that most sites on fishing in Holland are written in Dutch. I hope you recognize the species from the pictures (if not, I can send you translated names, just let me know). Next some more species:

About methods:
When I go fishing from the beach (near The Hague) I use 2 rods (both ? 4 meters long). I make my own rigs; I use 3 hooks (types depend on the kind of fish) per rig and breakaway leads (125 or more depending on the weather and the roughness of the sea). I have the best results near the small peers when there is tidal movement. I usually catch seabass and flatfish (plaice, flounder and sometimes sole) this way.

I've been fishing from boats a couple of times. Best thing to do is get your information at the (boatrental)shop. Often you can buy rigs and bait there and rent a boatrod as well.

About bait:
When I go fishing I usually use Lugworms for bait. Also used as bait on the Dutch coasts are ragworms, razorfish and soft crab (I believe it's called Peeler crab in English)
Some adresses for bait (for Zierikzee scroll to Zeeland):

kinds of bait: http://www.zeevissers.com/aassoorten.html

I hope you find all of this usefull and I wish you a very good time in Holland!

Greatings from The Hague - Holland,
Walter
