Fishing Copenhagen

Fishing tales from Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark

What is the connection between Toldboden in Copenhagen, Kendrick Lamar and cod? Let me explain.

Copenhagen cod Toldboden

Ok, so the last 10 days I have been on some trips to my usual spots in Nordhavn. It’s pretty stubborn and stupid, because there has been almost no sign of fish. But sometimes I just get to conservative, when I really should be moving on.

So Yesterday I gave it another shot at one of my favorite places in Nordhavn at Midtermolen. It is a spot with a lot of current and a large pile, which is overgrown with mussels. A perfect buffet for a large harbor cod no doubt. But alas, no fish.

Reluctantly, I had to surrender to the idea that Nordhavn just doesn’t hold a lot of fish now, and therefore I cycled to Toldboden, which is away ground for me.

In my ears I had one of the best hip hop albums in recent times – Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN.”. An album which he received a Pulitzer prize for as the first rap artist ever.

First, it didn’t help me much when I got a solid bottom bite. But when the exceptionally beautiful number “LOVE.” Came on, there was a ferocious cod that showed my red jig some love and went for it close to shore.

After a short fight I could land a small, fat harbor cod on 47 cm, which had a goldsinny wrasse on approx. 10 cm in the stomach. A perfect way to end a warm December evening in the dark.
