An angling holiday in North Jutland offers you almost all types of fishing. Here you will find sea, fjords, streams and lakes - we have saltwater and freshwater areas, so you will find most Danish fish species within reach.

The opportunities for fishing experiences on the sea are found all along the coast of North Jutland. Almost daily you will find boats leaving the harbour in the early morning hours, and returning hours later with the catch of the day. 

The North Sea has some of the best cod fishing. "The yellow reef"  is the most popular one and can be reached from Hanstholm and Hirtshals from i.a. M/S Mølboen and M/S Heidi. Several providers arrange tours to the reef and you can i.a. experience the great sea-fishing adventure with Atlantic cod, Atlantic wolffish, flatfish, Atlantic mackerel, saithe and much more.

The Day of the Fish

Each year in September, the day of the fish is celebrated across the country. At the North Sea Oceanarium in Hirtshals, the entire family is invited to spend the day with the fish in focus.

Coast and pier angling

Along the west coast, you will find plenty of opportunities to catch Atlantic cod, sea trout, Atlantic mackerel and flatfish. The East Jutland fjords, bays and coves are good fishing spots as well. If you want to catch sea trout in spring or garfish in the early summer, then take a look at fjord fishing in the Limfjord and Mariager Fjord.

The Limfjord is one of the best places in Denmark to catch sea trout and offers easy access to the sea and all its riches. You can find lots of practical information on angling in the Limfjord here.
