The Øresund Strait - A Paradise for Sport Anglers

The popular trip/charter fishing boat Tärnö on its way to Helsingborg after a hopefully
successful day of sport fishing in the Sound.

The Øresund strait is the home of some of the best sport fishing in Scandinavia. For those who want to find out more, there is a lot of useful information in English on this page:

For the sport angler, the Sound can offer an extremely varied range of sea and coastal fishing. Here, Cod, Mackerel, Herring, Sea Trout, Garfish, Plaice, Flounder and Dab all bite. If your luck is really in you might pull up the odd Whiting, Haddock, Coalfish Lumpfish, Eel or Salmon. Those fishing in the southern part of the Sound can hook both Perch and Roach. It could mean a really delicious fish soup for those who have got angling and casting down to a fine art, there are many tricks in the trade. For those interested in trying their luck, the best way is to go aboard one of the trip fishing boats. These are manned by experienced skippers and their echo probe can find the shoals. There is usually equipment to hire and for the beginner plenty of advice and tips in the art of casting and hooking.

Yesterday, the anglers on board one of the most popular trip/charter fishing boats, Tärnö, had probably been lucky - otherwise they would not have been surrounded by so many gulls ...
