When Chi and his son visited Copenhagen this week, they wanted a real Øresund fishing experience. They got what they came for. Three different species and 25 fish in total. Here is how it all went down.
Chi contacted me and asked for an exclusive private fishing trip with good chances of a great catch. Right now the water in the harbour is way too hot, to catch cod in the daytime, but the boat fishing out on Øresund is just epic. So I arranged that my friend, Skipper Jan, would bring the guys out for a combined cod and flatfish trip.
Chi asked that we didn´t go out when the waves were big, so we looked in the weather forecast, and found a time where there were not much wind.
Quiet start before it exploded
The day started at 10.00 from Fiskerihavnen, where the group met and sailed two kilometers North of Middelgrunden. The current was going North and it was pretty strong, so heavy gear was needed.
At first Jan struggled a bit to find the fish. But soon he found a small spot on 17 meters depth, where a large shoal of cod were ready for action.
After a bit of practice then the guys really learned how to trick and land these deep sea cod. Using 200-300 gram pilks they caught 10 cod up to 2.5 kilo in no time, and had a blast.
