Balatoni Halgazdálkodási Nonprofit Zrt. (BH Zrt.) Eases the fishing restrictions imposed due to the epidemic situation, so it is also possible to fish from a boat between 1 and 30 April 2021. The aim of easing the regulation is to keep fishermen in contact with each other as little as possible.
As we wrote earlier, MOHOSZ and BH Zrt. Previously stipulated that anglers on the shore should keep a distance of at least five meters from each other.
The provision, which will take effect on April 1, allows fishing from the boat up to a maximum of fifty meters from the north shore, with fishing from the boat allowed within a 300-meter lane on the south side. The fishing company has once again designated places forbidden to fish, so it is forbidden to fish from the boat along the Tihany Peninsula, at the western pier of the marinas of Földvár and Fonyód, and in the water area next to the Napfény promenade in Balatonberény. For the time being, the catching period remains unchanged, so anyone caught before 6 a.m. or after 7 p.m. by BH Zrt.’s fish guards or driving in a public area without a mask can expect a significant fine or infringement proceedings.
According to information obtained from sport fishing fishermen, due to the tightening of the epidemic situation, the fishing life at Lake Balaton will intensify this spring and summer as well, where in the “peaceful years”, equipped with fishing accessories, more than a hundred thousand people turned up every year. The spring season starts with good news for anglers, but the employees of Balatoni Halgazdálkodási Nonprofit Zrt. Are sad, because they had to divorce the fifty-year-old Süllő II. fishing vessel. The 17-meter-long, 17-ton Csepel-powered watercraft launched at the Balatonfüred shipyard in 1971 – which had not yet been towed but was slightly puffy during its last voyage – swam into the port of Vonyarcvashegy earlier in the week, where it ran into ice in 1729. It will be located near the monument to fishermen, with a renewed look, and will recall the centuries of Lake Balaton fishing, which ended in 2013.
