Enjoy fishing on the coasts on Bornholm. The island's coastlines are unique and incredibly varied
Nowhere else in Denmark do you have the opportunity to find such ideal coastlines as on Bornholm, and due to the island’s size, it is always possible to find a suitable fishing spot – regardless of weather conditions. With no less than 27 Bornholm harbours, there is also always a pier nearby where you can fish from – and there you have the opportunity to catch everything from herring, hornfish and sea trout to cod and flatfish depending on the season.
The best time to fish on Bornholm is in the period from mid-November to around midsummer. If the island has a warm Indian Summer, the ideal time for fishing will move one to two weeks ahead, ie. towards the end of November or the beginning of December. On this page we have gathered all the information you need to get a great fishing trip around the island.
If you intend to fish on Bornholm, you need a fishing license. The only exception is if you’ll only be fishing Put & Take lakes – or if you’re below 18 or more than 65 years old. If so, you can fish in the ocean around Bornholm for free.
Fishing licenses can be bought at Bornholms Velkomstcenter or via your mobile phone at www.fisketegn.dk.
