Bream Fishing: Our Best 22 Tips


Bream fishing is becoming increasingly popular in Germany. For many people it has become a much sought-after target fish. That’s why we have taken the trouble to write this rather elaborate and detailed beginner’s guide about the bream.

So in the end you should be able to make the right decisions regarding equipment, the right bream bait, the right bream mounting, the best season and the best location.

This way even if you don’t know much about bream fishing at the moment, you will be able to land capital bream. But you should get to know the bream a bit better before you start fishing.

Because only if you know your “opponent” can you be optimally prepared for it. That’s why we will go into more detail about the bream in the following so that you can learn a little more about their eating habits.

You should know this about the bream (Abramis brama)

Many will know the target fish bream also under the name of bream (Abramis brama), Brachsme(n), Bresen or also Pliete or Blei. It is a peaceful fish from the carp family.


Striking features of this fish are the scaleless head as well as the high and narrow body and the underlaying mouth. It also has a relatively long anal fin.

Bream can weigh up to 9 kg and can reach a length of 0.85 m. Below is a simple illustration which shows the bream very well.

Bream stand out mainly because of their black to lead-grey or lead-blue back, which has given them the name lead.


Often you can find them in larger flocks, if you have found them. If they appear, then mostly with other conspecifics.

The bream occurs mainly in stagnant and slowly flowing waters. These include ponds, lakes or even larger ponds.

Swarms of bream are easy to identify when swamp gas rises from the ground, which bream release by digging through the soil.

The following is a typical pond where the bream feel at home:

Their distribution area is mainly in Europe and Central Asia. In Europe it is considered one of the most widespread angling fishes and is at home in Germany and Holland, among others.

In the following waters you can find especially big bream in Germany:

  • Möhnetalsperre
  • Ismaninger Speichersee near Munich
  • Wertach-Stausee near Schwabmünchen
  • Forggensee
  • Lake Constance tributaries caught
  • Weser
  • Rhine
  • Isar
  • Lech
  • Danube
  • Elbe
  • Alz
  • Segeberger See
  • Rottach
  • the big Plöner See
  • Schwalm near Mönchengladbach
  • Wilsterau west of Hamburg
  • Lecker Au

But she is also at home north of the Alps, the Pyrenees and in the Balkans. To the east it can be found in the Aral Sea, Balchash Sea, the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.

If you are looking for particularly capital bream, you should take a closer look at the Shannon system of Ireland in addition to the above-mentioned waters. Very large specimens are often found here. They are also distinguished by the particularly conspicuous stripes on their body.


The swarms of insects and small crustaceans prefer to feed. Large bream also like to eat smaller fish.

The menu also includes snails, mussels, mud tube worms and sugar mosquito larvae. Occasionally, aquatic plants and plankton are also digested.

In areas where bream and roach meet, hybrids are also common. Crossbreeds of the two species then develop.

You can catch them both during the day and at night.


The spawning season for sea bream is between April and July. The closed seasons vary from state to state. It is noticeable that the males get a strong spawning rash on the head and body.

The spawning eggs are deposited on water plants, stones or roots. On average there are about 150,000 to 300,000 eggs, some of which are very sticky. The first larvae hatch ready after 3 to 14 days.

Sexual maturity begins at the age of 3 years.

Bream fishing equipment

If you are bream fishing with carp fishing as your guide, there is usually not much you can do wrong. However, bream can weigh up to 9 kg, so you need sturdy equipment.

Of course this includes a good rod, a suitable reel, the right line and hooks that are as stable as possible.

In the following we will show you what is important and what you should pay attention to.

The right bream rod

We use a pose rod with a total length of 3.60 m to 3.90 m. The DisplayDaiwa Aqualite Sensor Float with a total length of 3.60 m has proven to be very good for this purpose.

It consists of 3 parts and convinces by its excellent price/performance ratio. Furthermore it is with 233 g really very light. It is also characterized by its relative softness and good action.

For bottom fishing a Multipicker rod is the best choice. Many anglers use typical carp rods for bream fishing. These are relatively short, lightweight and not so expensive.

If you want to catch bream with the feed basket, you need a medium-weight feeder rod. This should have a casting weight between 80 and 100 g and be between 3.60 m and 3.90 m long. Feeder rods are ideal for still waters and rivers.

As an alternative, a dab rod is also suitable for bream fishing. This should be able to withstand heavy loads without problems and be between 9 and 14 m long. The advantage of a dip rod is that you can offer the bait very precisely.

In addition you can also use a match rod with a length of 3.80 to 4.20 m. It is ideal if you want to fish at a distance and want to reach the middle of the lake.

The following table compares different bream rods in direct comparison:

Which reel should you use for bream fishing?

Many people keep asking us by e-mail which reel to use for bream fishing. We recommend a medium sized free spool reel for feeder fishing with a feeder rod. It should be able to hold at least 150 m of a 0.25 mm thick line. This is the only way to ensure that you can achieve long casts.

In the past, the Shimano Usa Baitrunner 4000 Oceanic has proved its worth in this respect. It has a great line lay and with it very targeted casts are possible without any problems. And this is what it looks like: Display

The same applies to bottom fishing. Here too, a simple free spool reel with at least 150 m line capacity is indispensable.

Bream line

A 0.2 to 0.25 monofilament fishing line is suitable for feeder fishing. We have personally had the best experiences with this.

You can see that a bite has been taken, but you can most easily tell with a braided line. Because braided fishing lines hardly stretch at all.

If you decide on a braided fishing line, a 0.10 mm to 0.12 mm thick line is perfectly adequate.

So you can see the bite directly at the tip of the rod.

When fishing with a hook, a 0.14 to 0.16 mm monofilament fishing line is sufficient. If you decide on a leader and do not knot the bream hook to the main line, you should choose a 0.12 to 0.14 mm monofilament fishing line.

If you want to do bottom fishing, a slightly stronger bream line is required. You should choose at least 0.24 mm. On the other hand, if you’re fishing for carp, a 0.28 to 0.32 mm thick monofilament line is required.

For match fishing with a match rod a 16 mm main line is sufficient. However, you should also tie a 22 mm slack line to your main line.

An Albright knot is used to connect the two lines. A monofilament fishing line is perfectly adequate here. And so it is knotted:

You can find all the fishing knots in our fishing knot book.

Bream hook

If possible, the bream hook should always be based on the size of the bait used. The following list gives you an initial indication:

  • Maggots: 14 or 16 lures
  • Redworm: 12 lures
  • Corn: 10 or 12 lures

It is important that the maggots “hook” directly into the mouth of the bream when hooked. And especially when the bite has been made, they should not bend open again because the hook and the size of the fish do not match or the hook has a too thin wire.

We have had very good experience with the Gamakatsu Bream display hooks. These are ideal for all three of the mentioned fishing lures (maggots, red worm, corn).

Efficient bream mounts

In the following we would like to present some bream mounts. These are the following mounts:

  • Fodder basket mount
  • Pose mount
  • Paternoster mount

The individual rod mounts all have their advantages and disadvantages. In any case we will show you which one has proven to be the best for us and how to set it up.

Feeder assembly for bream

The feeder assembly is ideal for bream because they spend a lot of time on the bottom anyway. Many anglers therefore fish directly on the ground.

Instead of using a ground lead for bottom fishing, many anglers use a feed basket instead. This has the advantage that it often directly attracts several bream (and other fish).

This is because the food in the feed basket dissolves after a while and then spreads like a carpet at the fishing spot.

In addition, the food emits scents that are very tempting to the bream. You need the following utensils for the feed basket assembly:

  • Catch line (30 monofilament)
  • Carabiner swivel (display these are very good)
  • Feeding basket (display here you find a selection)
  • Hook (size 16 of display Gamakatsu)
  • Leader with 18er display Fluorocarbon (70 cm) Capacity 5 kg

And so is the complete feed basket assembly:

For bream fishing this is definitely one of our preferred fishing mounts.

For the loop you should use a surgeon’s loop if possible. You knot this as follows.

You can find other very good knots and loops for bream fishing in our book “the best fishing knots”.

Pose mounting for bream fishing with pose

Another option for bream fishing is pose mounting. In this case an olive or a stopper is first placed on the main line. This prevents the poses from slipping too far. This enables you to adjust the water depth exactly.

And this is what you need for the pose mounting for bream fishing:

  • Fishing hook (size 14 of display Gamakatsu)
  • 12er Fluorocarbon displayFluorocarbon (70 cm) Capacity 2,8 kg
  • 1 x Carabiner swivel (we can recommend this one)
  • Lead shot (display assortment 170, oval
  • Olive (0,30 g)
  • Stippose (1,5 g e.g.
  • 14er monofilament main line (for example in black from AnzeigeSeaKnight)

The following illustration shows you the structure:

Adjust the fishing rod assembly so that the castor is offered just above the ground.

Bream paternoster assembly for bream fishing on the bottom

As a bream assembly we often use a simple paternoster assembly for bottom fishing. This has proven to be very useful for bottom fishing. You will need the following tools to fish bream on the ground:

  • a mud lead / pear lead (approx. 100 g e.g. from AnzeigeJenzi)
  • a sufficient leader (approx. 50 cm)
  • 2 rubber stoppers (with this display set you have peace and quiet)
  • Bream hook (12 or 14 from AnzeigeGamakatsu)

The mud lead should hang on a 30 to 40 cm long piece of string.

The leader can be a little longer. We use leaders with a length of about 50 cm. As an alternative to pear lead you can also use a small feed basket. If the current is really strong, use flat lead with a total weight of about 100 g.

The size of the hook depends a little bit on the size of the bait for bottom fishing. Usually we use a 12 or 14 hook. In the picture below you can see the structure of the bream assembly:

When mounting the paternoster, pay special attention to the ground. This should not be too muddy when bottom fishing.

The best bream baits

You can use different baits as bream baits. We feed the bream a few days in advance. This way they know in advance that this is a suitable feeding place.

In addition, feeding also attracts other bream. This way the probability of catching a bream on a fishing day is much higher than if you don’t feed at all.

By the way: Feeding often brings carp into the plan.

Live bait (e.g. maggots and worms) usually works best.

Basic food

For feeding you can simply use basic food.

As basic feed the proven AnzeigeTimar Mix Feed Plus (Bream series) has proven to be particularly effective.

We have already used it frequently and in our experience it attracts especially the larger fish and keeps the smaller ones away.

Definitely an insider tip.


If there are a lot of carp in the water and the lake is preferred by carp anglers, you can also try feeding with boilies.

Usually the bream are already used to them. 10 mm Boilies are normally sufficient for this.

We can recommend for example the display Browning – Mini Boilie. These boilies are even pre-drilled and are suitable for carp, tench and barbel as well as bream.

Worms (Dung Worms / Dew Worms / Red Worms)

In addition to the basic food and the Boilies we have made very good experience with worms. These are often eaten at night or during the night. It does not matter which type of worm it is.

However, the following are recommended:

  • Mitwurm
  • Tauwurm (canadian crawler)
  • Rotwurm

It is much more important that they are placed correctly on the fishing hook. Many anglers tend to spear worms several times on the hook to make them stick better.

As a result they often knot into a thick lump.

The fact is that bream prefer to slurp or suck up worms. The following picture shows the typical slurping behaviour of bream:

Therefore it is advisable to spear the worm at one end and then be a bit more careful when throwing it into the water. Together with the paternoster assembly you offer the worm perfectly to make the bream aware of it.

If possible use a hook of size 6 to 8 which is especially suitable for spearing two worms at once.

Red worms, dung worms and rope worms are ideal for successful fishing.

By the way, you can find fresh (lively) fishing worms here.


Classic canned maize has also proved to be particularly suitable as another bream fishing bait. However, this has the disadvantage that it also tastes very good and attracts other fish.

Especially carp are seduced by it. Whoever wants to can also buy it in the artificial form. However, canned corn has proved most successful for us.

Here is a picture of the typical canned corn we use:

Because of the real scents it is simply more authentic for the bream and is more often accepted.

As an alternative you can also use corn mixed with honey. This is a good alternative to classic corn.


As an alternative to canned corn, you can also use classic maggots. Maggots are mainly eaten during the day or during the day. These are also eaten by many other fish (including bream). To prevent this, it is advisable to attach a so-called maggot clip to the display.

Here you can store about 10 to 20 maggots without any problems. They do not slip off so quickly and can be offered as a cocktail.

If you don’t have a maggot clip, you should fish with at least 3 maggots (on a size 16 hook) and skewer them onto the hook. If you want you can also use the hook to bait for corn or rope worms.

Even 6 maggots are best on a size 10 hook.

This large number of maggots attracts especially the capital bream. Many anglers also swear by so-called maggot balls.

A cork ball (for the hair) is prepared in such a way that maggots can be found on the entire ball. For this you should use so-called maggot glue if possible. Make sure that they are only glued on one side so that they can move.

Maggots are also very good for feeding.

Frolic rings

If you have a dog at home, you can also try Frolic rings. We have not tried it ourselves but we have heard some positive things about it.

The rings are easy to put on the fishing line because of their hole in the middle.

Everything for the right fishing season / Season

Bream are especially good in spring and late autumn. In winter, however, bream are somewhat more lazy. At the same time their metabolism slows down.

We therefore strongly recommend the warmer days for bream fishing. Here you can achieve the greatest possible success.

In addition, we have been able to make the best catches at night. During the day we’ve been able to land a few big bream, but at night we’ve definitely had the best experience.

Get yourself a carp lounger or a reasonable fishing chair to spend the night at the lake as comfortable as possible. In the following we will go into more detail about the individual seasons.

Bream fishing in spring (March, April, May)

Very good you can usually fish for bream in spring or springtime. They now slowly become “awake” again and start feeding.

But also the spawning season is getting closer and closer and they are preparing for this. And this is exactly what distinguishes them from the rest of the season. Many bream (the males) now have a thick spawning rash. These are noticeable pimples on the surface.

You can see this in the picture below:

The females have a smooth but slimy surface. So they can be distinguished very well in spring.

The spawning rash is especially suitable to get the females in the mood.

Where can they be found in spring?

In spring you can find the bream mainly in shallower water areas. Because here they usually find small insects and “bites” that don’t require much effort. In doing so, they mainly graze the bottom of the bank.

They are more strongly attracted when you feed them additionally. A combination of sweet basic food and life food often works wonders here.

Don’t worry about the amount: the bream won’t get full that quickly. So you don’t need to be afraid of “over-satiating” them by feeding them.

Which rod is recommended in spring?

It depends mainly on where you want to fish. We recommend that you choose the following rods depending on the water:

  • rivers: Feeder rod
  • Lakes / Ponds: Pose rod / Match rod

You can’t usually do much wrong with this.

Which bait in spring?

In spring a combination of basic food and maggots is suitable. But it’s better to use a mixture of maggots and casters

If you want to be on the safe side you should choose a combination of maggots and worms. Both dew worms and manure worms are suitable here.

If you like, you can also use classic bee maggots instead of meat maggots.

Bream fishing in summer (June, July, August)

Many anglers go fishing in summer, almost any time of the day. However, if you really want to be successful, you should go fishing for bream especially in the darker hours.

Where are the bream in summer?

In summer, the normal bream can be found in almost every part of your water. Very large bream, on the other hand, can be found in stronger currents.

In rivers, they can also be found in the middle of the river. Because here they often find more oxygen on hot summer days.

As soon as it begins to dawn the bream move to areas where it is a little quieter. Especially the proximity to the shore is ideal in summer.

Which equipment is recommended in summer?

If you want to be successful on bream in summer, you should use an unconditional ditch rod. If there are strong currents, you should have the option of staking it out. This will make it a little shorter afterwards. Use a line that is about 1.5 m longer than the estimated water depth.

Alternatively a Bolognese rod is also possible. However, you should only use this if the bottom is smooth and the water current is not so strong.

An “in between” would be a feeder rod. This can be used in both strong and weak currents. This is ideal when using a feed basket.

These are ideal for both strong and moderate currents. They also allow the baits to be placed accurately.

If possible, choose a 40 to 60 cm long leader.

But make sure you use a lead that is not torn away by the current. Here it is worth having several leads “on bag”.

At night you should use a slightly thicker fishing line. That way the line doesn’t get tangled so quickly and at night the bream aren’t so shy anyway.

You should also use an indicator-length landing net so that the bream can be landed better.

When should you fish for bream in summer?

Summer is the best time when it starts to get dark. However, the night is less ideal. Especially between 1 and 4:30 am the bream tend to bite less.

It’s not until the early hours of the morning that we get going again. Especially between 5 and 8 o’clock the bream get hungry again.

You should feed them before to increase your success rate. Large feed baskets are also advisable.

Which food should be in the feed basket?

The food for the basket should be a mixture of the following ingredients:

  • Maize
  • Peas
  • Maggots
  • Worms
  • Sugar (bream like it sweet)

Make sure that the feed for feeding has a yellowish tone. In summer, light colours are more catchy.

Alternatively you can also colour the food with food colouring.

You can also weigh the food down a little. You can do this, for example, by using individual pebbles or smaller stones. This way you make sure that the whole food basket sinks faster.

Which fishing lure is ideal in summer?

Maggots and redworms have also proved to be very catchy in summer. Alternatively, you can also use dung worms.

The bigger the lure you use, the bigger the bream will be attracted.

Always wait a little bit with the bait then. The bream should first have “pulled in” the bait so that the hook will later “sit” correctly.

Bream fishing in autumn (September, October, November)

Not everyone is successful with bream in autumn. However, some anglers pull one bream after the other out of the water. If you follow our tips, not much can actually go wrong.

Autumn itself makes itself felt as early as September, spreads out properly in October and then moves on to winter again in November.

It is characteristic that the air temperature often falls below 15 degrees.

When is the best time in autumn?

The best time in autumn is in the morning and around midday. So from 06:00 to 12:00.

It shouldn’t rain and the wind shouldn’t be so strong. Therefore a quiet place is crucial for your success in bream fishing.

It is important that you bring patience. Because especially in autumn the bream is very shy and chooses its bait very carefully.

Where are the bream in autumn?

Bream like to stick to structures in autumn. Here you will find good hiding places. Therefore it is important to search the ground first. This can be done with a fish finder, for example. Structures in autumn are ideal for bream. Among these are:

  • Pits
  • Deepenings
  • Holes

But you can also meet bream on the herb or in the reeds.

If you have found a good spot, you should remember it. This is where they like to stay more often.

Clear waters for predators are to be avoided because the probability of bream here is relatively low in autumn.

You increase your chances of catching bream in autumn if you set up several bream rods. They should have a distance of about 50 to 70 m.

What else should you pay attention to?

In autumn you should make sure to check the bait every 10 to 15 minutes. Because often smaller fish also tamper with the bait.

If there is no bite at all after about 30 minutes, it makes sense to change places completely.

Sometimes the bream migrate in autumn and you have to keep on looking for them.

Bream fishing in winter (December, January, February)

Fishing bream in winter is a little more difficult than in the other seasons such as spring, summer and autumn. This is because they are more “sluggish” and are not so “biting”.

In winter, however, they are most “catchy” late in the morning (11:00 to 12:00). But also the early afternoon (12:00 to 14:00 o’clock) has already given us many bream in winter.

Nevertheless there are some “tricks” to stimulate their “biting mood” at the other times, too.

Feeding in winter

An important option in winter is to feed the bream. This way they become active a few days before and know about a new feeding place.

But what do you have to pay attention to when feeding? When feeding it is important that you use dark food. The bream usually react better to this in winter. In summer light food works well, in winter it should be dark.

We usually use feed balls with a weight of about 150 to 250 g. You can also add maggots, linseed and corn to the water at the feeding place. A pinch of salt stimulates the bream to digest the food faster (so they get hungry faster again).

Because especially in cold water it is sometimes difficult to point out the bait to them. With the extra food you can do this very well. Also the smell of the food will attract the bream to the desired spot.

You should not exaggerate with the food. Otherwise it can happen that they are full too quickly. Because especially in winter the bream are a bit sluggish because they have reduced their metabolism.

The food serves much more as an “appetizer” and not to get them full.

The right bait in winter

In winter the following bream baits have proved to be very useful:

  • Maggots
  • Redworms

If you don’t stand a chance at all, you should try casting and hemp.

You should fish with a feed basket. For this you can use the same feed mixture as for feeding. This includes:

  • Maggots
  • Linseed
  • Maize
  • Salt

If you wish, you can also “enrich” the feed mix with various fragrances such as caramel, aniseed and vanilla.

Equipment in winter

As equipment you should use a 10 to 15 g feed basket in addition to the actual feeder rod.

The main line should have a braided fishing line with a thickness of 0.08 to 0.10 mm. You knot a 0.23 mm thick monofilament fishing line on this to have a “drill buffer”.

In winter a size 14 hook has become established as a bream hook. These are not too big but also not too none.

The right place to fish for bream

Of course, in addition to the right equipment, the location is also crucial for successful bream fishing.

The following waters are suitable for bream and have proven to be very good in the past:

  • Rivers
  • Channels
  • Lakes

We will go into more detail about the individual waters below so that you can get an impression for yourself.

Bream fishing on the river

For us, wide and calm rivers have proven to be very good for river fishing.

Especially where the bottom is a bit wider but not too muddy. In addition, the edge of the river should be as shallow as possible and fall down to the middle of the river.

Also make sure that there is no digested sludge. This refers to a nutrient-rich underwater bottom in the absence of oxygen.

Due to the absence of oxygen, gases develop which many bream (and other fish) avoid. Most of the time you can recognize them already at the shore by their black colour.

We always distribute our rods in several places to increase the chances of catching fish.

This includes the following areas along the river:

  • Headlands
  • Sandbanks
  • Cabbage edges

We have also often been able to catch some capital bream in mosquito larvae fields. Here a good spot on the Main:

But of course you can also fish very successfully for bream on the Rhine.

Bream fishing in a lake

The nice thing is that lakes don’t have to be big for the bream themselves to be really big. They often grow into capital fish even in small waters.

They also often travel in larger shoals and search the bottom for food. As a result it can happen that you pull several bream ashore shortly after each other.

Sometimes they even “devastate” the ground they are travelling in.

Their preferred food in the lake is mud tube worms. But they do not stop at some underwater plants either.

Many people ask us which mounting they should best use in the lake. The nice thing is that you have a free choice in the lake. No matter if you decide to use a paternoster mount, fish with a pose or fish bream on the bottom, you are free to choose.

However, especially in lakes you will find many big bream, especially in the deeper parts of the water.

That’s why the pose mounting makes a lot of sense here because you can adjust the depth. Because with fixed poses you often don’t reach the greater depths (20 m+).

If you want to fish big bream in the lake, you should also avoid the shore area. We have had good experience with “structured” bottoms. These include, for example, edges, herbaceous and sandbanks.

Many anglers therefore always take several rods with them to increase their chances.

Bream fishing in a channel

You can also catch big bream in a channel. Here you should always check the water level first. Because of the opening and closing locks the water level can change within a few minutes.

And of course this also changes the level of your lure when you fish with the pose. Here it is necessary to “readjust” if necessary. And always by the amount of the water level that has decreased or increased.

Therefore it makes sense to save the current water level in your smartphone or write it down in your notebook.

It is also advisable to feed the bream at a specific place. A mixture of basic feed with maize and maggots is suitable for this purpose. Place the bait (e.g. worm or caster) 1 m away from it, downstream.

The bait can then “float” better in the channel above the respective feeding place. A pose mounting is perfect for the channel. You can choose a pose with a weight of 1.5 to 4 g. In addition, a stopper and several lead shot (explained above) are to be attached.

The following 9-minute video shows you how to fish for bream on the canal in more detail:

Drill of the bream

If you have done everything correctly regarding bait, equipment and fishing spot (or water), you will inevitably get a bite. Bream usually react very stormy in the beginning and immediately start to flee.

However, they also tire relatively quickly again. Here your patience is simply asked a little. So let the line come a little bit and give yourself time to “power up”.

This way the bream can be landed relatively easily and gently with a suitable landing net (when they are tired). Here is a relatively small bream that should be put back:

Even if they belong to the quieter fish, the drill can be quite exciting due to the size of the bream. Just try to keep calm, put the stop early and land the bream gently.

Afterwards you must of course decide how to continue with your catch.

What happens after landing?

If everything went well, you can take a photo with the bream.

Release them afterwards to let them go back to their conspecifics. Other anglers can also have fun with it.

Of course it is also possible to use it as food fish. However, they are relatively bone-rich.

If you decide to use them, it is advisable to fry or marinate the fish. It is also suitable for the oven.

Bream recipe for the oven

In the following we will go into a delicious recipe that is very suitable for the home. It can be prepared in 30 to 60 minutes with very little effort.


This bream recipe is suitable for 3 to 4 people. You need the following ingredients:

  • 2 larger bream of 500 g each (these should already be freed from the scales and gutted)
  • Salt
  • Parsley
  • approx. 20 g butter
  • 2 to 4 tomatoes
  • 4 to 5 bay leaves
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 untreated lemon

You can usually get the ingredients in any major supermarket.


For preparation in the first step, proceed as follows:

  • Rinse the bream inside and outside with cold water (then dry them carefully)
  • Cut the bream twice on each of the two thick sides
  • Sprinkle the bream with salt and freshly ground black pepper inside and out
  • Place washed parsley leaves inside the bream

Then prepare everything for the oven. The following are the individual steps for this:

  • Spread some butter on an ovenproof dish
  • Place the bream in the oven dish in the opposite direction
  • Place a bay leaf between the bream
  • Cut the lemons and tomatoes into slices (don’t forget to wash them)

And this is how it should look like

Here are the next steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C° (circulating air)Place the sliced tomatoes and lemon slices on the bream and sprinkle them with parsley and a little olive oil on the bream (do not exaggerate)Cover with aluminium foil Put the two fish in the hot ovenThe bream should now cook for 20 minutesAfter 20 minutes switch the oven down to 160 degrees C°Remove the foil and let the bream cook for another 10 minutes

Then you can serve the bream. Bon appetite.

Everything on the point in the video for bream fishing

Here we have found a very good video for bream fishing with many more tips and tricks, which are clearly explained directly at the lake. It is just 18 minutes long:
