Just another 8 weeks before the fun feast is about to start! So we need to get things finalized by now and therefore we need your help. We kindly ask all people who have already registered to pay there competition fees by the 15th of July so that we can go on organizing. Many of you have already done it but the last ones need to follow by now. For those who haven't done their registration yet you still have time until the 15th of July (including payment).
Each one will get a goody bag including jig heads, jigs, wobblers, spinners and a base cap at the start plus all of you have the chance to win fantastic prizes! So better hurry up to not miss out on something that is going to be historic!
In order to get the needed local fishing licenses we have managed to land a deal with the local official institution which will allow us to organize those for all people not living in Germany. So that's no worries! Payments though would have to made at the event in cash. The exact information on the cost etc. will be announced at a later date. Unfortunately everything has to be regulated in Germany.
All Germans would need to get their permission online under
Hendrik from the orga-team will already be in Schaprode from Monday the 29th. So whoever wants to enjoy the days prior to the actual event to practice or what not just needs to contact us ( and Hendrik will meet you there personally to handover all relevant documents (license/map/etc.- again Germans please sort the license out yourself).
To those who have not booked their accommodation yet and would love to stay on the camping ground together with us please make your reservations now as during the event there is still vacation time in that particular state of Germany and remaining empty spots might soon be gone. Just send a mail to Sarah Ahrends ( with a regard to Bodden Bash! She'll be delighted to give you the best spots possible directly at the shoreline!
All detailed information will follow latest by mid. August (when and where to meet, start of the event on Friday night etc.)

This year it is going to happen! In one of Europe's best predator locations on Ruegen the Jackson Kayak Bodden Bash will be held for the first time ever!
On September 3rd and 4th many kayakers from all around the world will meet on the Camping ground in Schaprode to have two major days of fun and a fishing frenzy together! There will be music, barbecues and fishing of course - so all in all a big party. At the end of the whole event we will have a huge tombola where each contestant has the chance of winning one of the many prices that we have already received by our sponsors.

Your registration fee will get you a nice welcoming package, a free barbecue on Saturday night, some drinks to make the roasted German specialties even more delicious and of course the ticket for taking part in the competition as well as the tombola.
The fishing license for the state of Mecklenburg as well as all transportation to and during the event has to be organized by each one him- or herself please.

There is a huge areal reserved for all contestants on the local camping ground which will also be the hot spot for all additional activities during the event. If you prefer to stay in nearby hotels or b&b then you need to take care of it yourself please. Make sure to do it early in advance as we are still in vacation season in Germany.

As competitive fishing in Germany is strictly forbidden and the Bodden Bash will be a festival there won't be any regulations or rules. The only rule is to wear a pfd and of course to respect and follow all official regulations issued by the state of Mecklenburg Vorpommern! Any further instructions will be sent to you via mail after your registration. The main objective is to have fun and not overrule everything by tons of regulations. So easy does it is the theme for the event!
