28 dec, Ravin & Sheung

Trip No. 2 with Ravin & Sheung, They want two days fishing on the lake with an overnight stay at Matu-island. Of course this is no problem. We leave early from the city. Its morning glory when we arrive at the lake. After we caught some baitfish we sail towards the fishing grounds. It's a knobbly ride but once on the spot, We start fishing. Its a slow start. But the fish is found. The first catch is on the deep running plugs. But when the sun breaks through the surface lures also get attention .. By 12 we stop fishing and we leave for Matu-island. The lunch buffet is ready.

In the afternoon there is a stiff breeze. The sun is not to be seen. We are finding the large water and in the lee of an island we capture the boat. On the lures we get no responses. But then switch to live bait .. and it works ... some pretty Peacockbass as a result ...

The second day, after a good dinner and sleep, we early go out on the water. Unfortunately, there is still wind and the sun is still hidding. Nevertheless Ravin knows to land a nice Piranha on lures. And on live bait Sheung captures another Peacock. Several hits are missed. But even those are appreciated

response of the guests:
indescribably beautiful !! Words fail ..

Onbeschrijfelijk mooi!! woorden schieten tekort..

24 dec, Niets Ravin & Sheung

Niels mails from Ned that he is coming .. He would like to fish but does not have a fishingbuddy. Ravin & Sheung are two friends on vacation in Su. They like to spend a day fishing and do not object that Niels joins them.

Once on the water we have, contrary to expectations, a slow start. After 2 spots we find the Rays. Here the boys can indulge themselves with some nice catches. The largest ray is to big to get on board (safety). When de the bites drop, we move again. And again we hit a spot found with fish ... this time its catfish.

Alex and Erik are on holiday in Suriname. Alex is a sport fisherman who in recent years has less time for it. Erik is not a fisherman but gladly accompanies his brother.

For Marja and Nadia it's already a while ago they have fished. Saskia joins them. Once on the water, it seems the ladies have never fished with a spinning rod ...Ok .. so, first an instructional lesson ..and the ladies get it. the casts get better and better. Fish is caught. Rog is a special catch. Nadia is a freelance photographer and was very impressed with the surroundings.

Customer response.

Very nice trip a must! Knowledgeable guide who very patiently explains the technique of fishing.

Heel leuke trip een aanrader! Kundige gids die heel geduldig de techniek van het hengelen aan leken bijbrengt.

1&2 October, Bohr, Armand & Suzanne

Armand and Suzanne are on holiday in Suriname. Armand an avid angler and Suzanne should not have much of that. But on vacation, she promises to join him.

Ultimately the choice fell on two days (teh Lake) Reservoir with overnight on Matu Island. When we sail in the morning, there is a strong wind with a nasty swell. It was a tough journey. Fortunately it is less intense on the east side of the lake.

I have chosen to start fishing with surface lures. Armand goes right away while Suzanne gets a workout in "fishing with a spinning rod." During the morning the waves become less and the first Peacock (Tukunari) is caught, we fished the lee side of an island. Moments later Armand catches No. 2 and even a Piranha is caught. The fish is not "loose".

After lunch on-Matu Island, we start fishing again at 16 hours. With a net we catch baitfish. Then it's a question of finding the Peacockbass, Eventually we find a school "on the doorstep" of Matu.

After a delicious dinner and a good night's sleep we start after breakfast early the next day. Again there is a strong wind and swell. We choose to fish in the lee of one of the major inlets. Artmand starts with Lures and Suzanne gets to work with live bait. Unfortunately for Armand The peacock is not interested in the Lures. But the livebait is different. Twice we find a school and it goes completely loose .. not the biggest, but fun sport on light tackle. Suzanne Is the lucky one. We decide to end the day fishing "on the doorstep" of Matu. And here it is not long before we hit a school of Peacock and this time they are "somewhat larger"

Guest Response:
Amazing experience. You do not need to be a professional to make this trip. Good guidance.

Geweldige ervaring. Je hoeft geen prof te zijn om deze trip te maken. goede begeleiding.

20 august, Nabibaks

Anouschka Nabibaks (www.fiscleconsultancy.com) is an avid angler. She has been fishing in Argentina, Brazil etc. In Surinam you can find her at Kayser .. Still her favorite sport fish is the Tukunari (Peacock Bass). Her sister Karin and brother-in-law Michel Capitein (www.technolab.nl) are on holiday in Surinam. Niece Keyleigh is also there. They like to visit the Reservoir, of course there should be some fishing.

At the first island I'll tie the boat so we have time to rig the rods and give instructions. Before I got the first rod rigged Anouschka misses the first fish. While I give instructions to Keyleigh, Anouschka has the 2nd strike. OK. exciting start .. When everyone is fishing, we drift further along the island. And again it is Anouschka .... FISH ON!! Peacock Bass !! .. .. .. 51 CM.. Catch of the day.
Michel also captures a beautiful Tukunari on the same spot. A good start. And actually it went like this the whole day. Over 15 piece Tukunari, only a few "small-ones" and Black Piranha. Karin managed to catch her first fish ever and Keyleigh caught a Tukunari of 48cm ..

Catch of the Day: Peacock Bass 51CM

lures of the day: Whopper plopper, River2Sea

Customer Response:
I thought it was a very successful day and worth every penny! Ray is a nice friendly guy with excellent material. He is not satisfied until his client is. I heartily recommend it to also enjoy this experience.

Ik vond het een bijzonder geslaagde dag en iedere cent waard! Ray is een leuke vriendelijke gozer met uitstekend materiaal. Hij is pas tevreden als zijn klant het ook is. Ik beveel het van harte aan om ook deze ervaring te beleven.

18 august, De Leeuw

Shirlana and Christian are four weeks on holiday in Surinam. They wanted to go fishing a week earlier but due to illness they could not. luckily I had some space in my diary. They were picked up at 6:00 and then off to the estuari. It starts as a dry day. And the fish cooperate. it is not long before the first fish aboard. When is gets slow we move. On the 2nd spot it is not much better and Shirlana Chritian and decide that it's been fun. Back to the slope. Halfway it starts raining .. and it does not stop.

Response of the guest:
It was a fun trip, I'm glad we were able to shift the day when there was a sick ..

Het was een leuke trip, fijn dat we de dag konden verzetten toen er een zieke was.

15 August, US Coast Guard

A regular customer calls with a "last minute" booking. He has four guests who want to fish on the weekend. After some re-organization i manage to take the reservation. It turns out to be 4 men of the US Coast Guard. Andrew, Scott, Mike and John. They are 2 weeks in Suriname for providing training to the Surinamese Coast Guard. I immediately felt a lot safer on board ..

It was a beautiful day on the Lake. Despite the clouds, several beautiful Tukunari and a nice number of Piranha were caught. Everyone caught at least one Peacockbass and one Black Piranha.The guests were happy.

Bait of the day: Yo-zuri Minnow

Guest response:

23 July, Ramon & Toon

Ramon is with the family on holiday in Suriname. He wants to go fishing but no fishing budy. Toon, also on holidays, has the same situation. After some calls back and forth we manages to combine the men on one trip. Ronald van "R&S Vissen In Suriname" goes along and Ramon decides to take his son with him. And it is a full house.

On catches, we can be brief. It's a fun day and everybody catches his part .. unfortunately there are a few failures of probably "very big" fish. 1xthere's no stopping the fish. Result is line breakage.

Nevertheless a fun day on the estuari.

Customer response:
Since I'm not a fisherman, I have to work to bring a ray inside. This gives you a thrill. recommended this trip.

Reactie van de klant:
Aangezien ik geen sportvisser ben heb ik toch moeten werken om een rog binnen te halen. Dit geeft je wel een kick. een aanrader deze trip.

10 July, Breemen.

Fred is a pilot. For his work at KLM he was a few days in Suriname. From the Netherlands he did the booking. Good friend Mark was with him. Together they want to spend the day relaxing on the estuari. And it works. At least in the beginning. During the day catches got better and better .. to the point that it even appears as employment.

Fred and Mark were happy and reservations for the next trip were made. This time it will be a multi-day trip.

We started out on the commewijne river and ended up at Braamspunt , catch consisting of Kodokoe 's ... up to a point, then the StingRays started. Within a short time were able to catch some. Two of them were huge, it was not save to get them in the boat. So the stingray was cutoff in the water.

It’s the second trip to Surinam for the family Valkenburg . This time they want to spend several days in the nature, back to basic. Arriving on Saturday Father Elias, and sons Gerritjan and René have one day to explore Paramaribo. On monday the adventure starts. At airport “ Zorg & Hoop” we take the airplane to Kayana, a village at the end of civilization on the “Upper Surinam River”. After lunch at Kosindo resort we leave for the wildernis by boat. Crossing several rapids we go up the river for about 4 hours.. Next to a Rapid we make camp. A beautiful  scenery.  The next days we spend fishing, swimming and enjoying Nature. From camp we go another 4 hours upstream. Elias, Gerritjan and René are impressed with the nature, beautiful trees, Capibara, Caiman, Snakes etc.. The most impressive was the anaconda having a sunbath..The weather was not to our advantage. In one day the watherlever had risen 1 meter.. in 2 days the water decreased 1 meter. And in one night it rose again 1 meter. This was killing for fishing. After 5 days in the jungle is   was Back to “Zorg en Hoop” with a lifetime experience.

  • Customer response:
  • Despite our fishing trip for the 2nd time in Suriname, was another learning experience.
