Tips and tricks for success

Fishing at sea

The strait between Denmark and Sweden is known as the Sound (Øresund) and it connects the Kattegat and the Baltic Sea. It provides a migratory route for many species of fish and therefore large quantities of cod, herring, mackerel, flatfish and garfish can be found here .

Sea trout fishing

The North Coast is known for having beautiful scenery, oftentimes harsh weather and large sea trout. Fishing here is not always easy, but the rewards can be great. Although there are many fish here, you should prepare to cast many lines. But there’s a lot you can do to enhance your chances

Coastal fishing/Harbour and jetty fishing

Some of the best fishing spots can be found in harbours and along jetties. The jetties are usually made of large stones where prey and fish can hide inside .

Put and take

Put and take fishing is a fun way to spend a day with your family or friends. In the vast majority of put and take lakes, fish are restocked several times a week.
