151 participants participated in an epic fishing battle in Nordhavn. Competition was fierce, but in the end then Abraham Memita won the fishing throne and became king of the harbour.
It was a hard grind, and the contestants fished until their hands bled. Both lures, jigs and shrimps were used, and the most skilled fishermen of the day were rewarded with a number of fine cod.
The majority of the larger fish were caught on the outskirts of Sundkaj, where the wind was the strongest, as well as in the Midtermole basin.
Only 9 centimeters separated the 10 longest fish, so it was a very close race and several fishermen, had to be stopped from pulling their fish in the tail to add a few extra centimeters and win the glory.
The three largest fish were:
- 62 cm – Abraham Memita
- 61 cm – Karl Erik Hemmingsen
- 60.5 cm – Alexander Ilievski
This means that Abraham can call himself official King of the Harbour until Havnecup 2020 next Autumn.
