Bornholm offers ideal coastlines

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.

Fish from mid-November to mid-June

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.
