Types for fishing from the shore in the Limfjord
Revlekyster in the Limfjord
– Many shores of the Limfjord are so-called cliff shores, where deeper dark areas are interrupted by longitudinal shallow cliffs.
The bottom is mostly sandy, but the monotony is often broken by larger rocks, gravel-bottomed areas and underwater vegetation. The deeper areas between the cliffs can hold a lot of sea trout. At low tide, fish are often located inside the innermost dark belt, which can be fished from shore, while at low tide it may be necessary to wade to the 1st or 2nd reef.
Attention; can be dangerous to wade away!
Strong currents in the Limfjord
– There are many coastal places in the Limfjord with strong currents. Both in the narrow Langerak in the east and in the central and western part of the fjord. At the mouth of the fjord in the Kattegat, there are several incredibly exciting tidal canals that can offer very special fishing.
Many of the places with strong currents are deep, and these two factors make these places good places in the summer months, because that often means colder, oxygen-rich water. Fish often remain at the transition between shallow water and a deep stream, where they can hunt for food and find shelter from the current.
We recommend heavier baits to get deep even in strong currents. Fishermen often use baits from 21 to 24 grams here. If you are fly fishing fishermen here, you will need to use a diving line.
Stone and shell cliffs in the Limfjord
– Reefs are available in all sizes, but whether large or small, there are good fishing opportunities.
The cliffs are characterized by the fact that they are shallow in relation to the adjacent areas. Fish are often caught over a reef or when crossing between a reef and slightly deeper water. In particular, reefs associated with seaweed strips attract and hold many fish in deeper water.
Pay attention to the water level on the cliffs.
In general, fishing in the Limfjord is best at medium to high levels, and reefs are no exception. At high tide, most cliffs can be caught from the shore. At low tide, some reefs dry out or the water level is so low that the fish can’t stay there. If you are fishing in low tide areas, you may need to get closer to the fish.
Ålegræskyster – grasslands in the Limfjord
– This coastal type is very widespread in the Limfjord and at first glance many will probably think that the place is monotonous and boring. What the coastal type may lack in magic is again richly balanced by the number of fish.
Ålegræskyster plates are home to sea trout prey.
Sea trout therefore often fish on or near this particular type of coast. It is best to fish on the edges of grass meadows or where there are holes in the vegetation.
There are days when fishing on this type of coast is virtually impossible due to torn leaves floating on the water surface. This problem is greatest with strong winds on land. At low tide in the fjord, it will be necessary to wade into deeper water in many places.
Ports and piers in the Limfjord
– Artificial rock cliffs in harbors and piers are home to many sea trout prey, which is why fish are often caught here.
In addition to sea trout, it is often possible to catch herring, garfish, plaice, etc. from the pier. The ports are also always easily accessible and regardless of the wind direction, you can almost always fish here, because the water is deep and the piers create a great shelter.
Harbors and piers are also ideal for children.
Thanks to the deep water, the harbors and piers are suitable for children and beginners in fishing, because you do not have to wade to get to the fish. Vegetation on stone formations of piers often attracts mullets, and then it may be good to have a fly rod or bread and hook.
From most ports it is also possible to place a boat in the water, which of course offers completely different possibilities for finding fish.
