Fishing destination Baltic Sea coast Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (M-V)

The Baltic Sea is an area very popular with anglers. From the boat and from land you can achieve very good catches and incidentally you can enjoy the peace and the refreshing Baltic wind … This is pure relaxation!

Fishing from the coast

Surf fishing on the Baltic coast is very popular. Armed with pieces of fish or lugworms, up to three basic fishes with 2 hooks per person may be ejected. The target fish here is primarily cod, whiting and flatfish (plaice, flounder). Occasionally, this method is also used to catch sea trout that do not want to miss out on a tasty bait.
Another option for fishing from the shore or shallow water is wading. Here anglers wading with waders and wading jacket go into the water, in order to get from a sandbar or lying in the water rocks, for example, a better position for fishing. Here it is possible to fish a much larger area and to be able to offer his bait with the current. This method is very popular when fishing for sea trout, but also cod and even garfish, which in large swarms in the spring on the coast, can be outsmarted with this method of an active bait guide.

With the boat out to the sea

If you want to go for more capital fish, it is a good idea to rent a boat or book a guided fishing tour right away. Along the Baltic Sea coast you can catch very beautiful fish in different ways. With pirkins and rubberfish you can catch cod up to the meter mark, especially in deeper places, on old wrecks or near the fairways, the chance for one of these tasty predators is very good.
If you do not want to fish actively all the time, you can of course also go by boat and reach the desired target fish. For this purpose, with a natural bait assembly, equipped with lugworms or fish scraps, directly fished on the ground or pulled behind the bait. Plaice, flounder, dab, whiting, cod are hereby landed mainly. Turbot and sea trout, as well as rainbow trout that have escaped from Danish farms, go here also isolated the tape.

Big Game Fishing

„Big Game Fishing“ is also possible in the Baltic Sea. From Rostock to Rügen, regular trout and salmon caught regularly more than one meter in length are trolling. Such an experience makes anglers‘ friends jealous when talking about 30-minute drills and showing pictures of their trophies. Many guides offer specially guided day trips. This often goes far out to the Baltic Sea and a reasonable preparation of such a tour should be self-evident for everyone. The selection of the provider should not be fixed here on the price but on the performance and the own gut feeling. A large boat with cabin, provided equipment, life jackets and modern communication equipment are here the good sound. The dangers at sea must always be remembered, and very important: drinking and driving is an absolute NoGo!
