Seatrout, cod and pike fishing in Denmark

About me


My name is Anders and I´ve been roaming the Danish coasts in search of seatrouts since back in 1999 when I was just a 15 year old kid. Today I still pursue the silvery trouts and even though I live in Copenhagen I fish all over Zealand. I prefer to fish in windy conditions with heavy lures but some days I will use bombarda instead if the conditions are more to the quiet side.

In the recent years I´ve also acquired a taste for pike and cod which have led me to start fishing in my home town Copenhagen. As time has become more sparse, I often hunt pike and cod here close to my home where I can reach the fishing spots in just 15 minutes.

I sure hope you enjoy my posts about fishing. Feel free to comment or contact me through swagtrout@gmail.com

Tight lines!

    Hi Anders,
    Greetings from Joachim from Germany!
    Next week, I have to work for some days in Copenhagen. As I am an enthusiastic angler, I will try to find some time to go our for fishing. From your swaggtrout homepage, I already got some informations about the necessary licence and good spots within the harbor. As I am especially interested to catch perch, I wonder whether you may have some additional hints where and how to catch them.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Best wishes,

      Hi Joachim

      Thanks for getting in touch. To be honest with you, there are limited options of catching perch in the city at the moment. Very rarely you can be lucky to get one in the harbor but the water is not brackish enough so this doesnt happen often. The cod fishing with jigs on the bottom is starting to improve now as the water is getting warmer so you could try that instead.

      If you only want to go for perch you could try the inner lakes in the city center. Lots of small perch can be caught here. Be aware though that it is not legal to fish here now so there is some fisk to it. Also remember that it is not legal to fish after pike in april in Denmark so you should try to stay cleer of them.

      If I were you I´d go for cod instead. Maybe go to the Facebook group: “Fiskeri i Københavns Havn” and make a post where you ask if anyone wants to go fishing with you and show you a spot or two. I am sure someone would like to show you around. 🙂

      Have fun.
      Best regards
