Fishing Copenhagen

Fishing trips in Copenhagen

In recognition of the dubious quality of my fishing, I have bought my first “real” camera to raise my standards. I tested the camera on a morning trip to Kastellet on a Sunday summer morning.

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.

Over the last three weeks, the cod have moved to deeper territory where the water is a bit colder. We now catch them on 14-15 meters or more.

As readers of this blog will know, I enjoyed some pretty fantastic cod fishing in april and May on 7-8 meters depth. One of the spots that had fished great in the Spring was the reef just west of Middelgrundsfortet. But when I went to the same spot in mid June, the fishing was much slower, and the giant shoals of fish seemed to have moved.

My friend and I fished there for a few hours with only a few bites. One of the fish I caught, was a strange looking dark cod with a very characteristic nose. I also got a beautiful small pollack that was released. But apart from that no action.
