Description of Carp fishing Šmartinsko Lake

Not only is it one of the largest artificial lakes in Slovenia, the Šmartinsko Lake is the current record holder for the biggest Carp ever caught in this country, topping the scale at 34.6kg (76 lbs). It was caught and released in November 2013. Situated in an incredibly stunning environment, the lake is home to the Carp, Grass Carp, Wels, Bream, Zander and Pike, among others.

Fishing on this lake can be very productive, so it may not be such a big surprise if you end up with one or two 20 kg+ fish on the bank in a single day. With the right approach and techniques provided by our guide, a good catch is bound to swim your way. The guide takes you to the lake, helps set up camp and fishing gear, so you can start fishing as soon as possible. In case you need additional tips, your guide is always available nearby. On your last day, the guide also helps tidy up and drives you back home or hotel.
In order to book this trip, reservation must be made for minimum of 2 persons.

A real gem among the waters and gems in the water. 5 days of intensive fishing was nicely rewarded with fish from 5 to 25 kg. Everything organized and prepared. And the BBQ by our guide Bojan was goooood.

I expected some action in the second half of the campaign, but it started after only 2 hours from first feeding and continued until the very last hour of our departure. Top fishing!
Jax Davis
Carp fishing as it should be. The gear was ready, transfer too, we got all the tips and tricks by our guide, bait and all the help we needed. Pure joy for the rest of 5-day campaign. We got a catch of 4 carps over 20kg.
