SEATROUT FISHING PARADISE
Seatrout is the main reason why anglers from all Europe come every year to Fyn.
We have thousands of anglers coming back every year for enjoy our coastal fishing. Our island is a unique fantastic place. You will fish in coast, reefs and sandy beach, in a fascinating natural context. This is not a “20 fish in a day” destination, therefor if you are in research of that, our destination is not for you! But if you are looking for a fantastic fishing experience and the satisfaction to catch a prey with a “value added”, then you must try this experience.
Fly fishing, spinning and bombarda are the right technique to use.
Seatrout average size is very various, there are many fish in the average 35 > 55 cm, but every single moment you have the possibility to catch fish over 60 or 70 cm: the trout of your life with the added value of have catching it in the sea!
Not least, our seatrouts are very strong and perform spectacular jumps!
There are also some schools of rainbow trouts along our coast. It’s not so frequent to catch this fish, said that, it can be possible to get in contact with a strong and fat rainbow trout! Those fish are introduced by humans (and sometimes escaped from farms), and have adapted perfectly to the marine environment.
Seatrouts are catchable all year round, however every season have some peculiarity.
“Catching a spring silver beauty on our crystal clear water, is an experience that every skilled anglers have to try”
Late winter and spring are the periods where sea trout runs back to the sea after been spawning in rivers. March, April, May are the months where seatrouts are very active and feeding near the coasts. There is plenty of fish along the coasts in spring, therefor this is one of the best period for fishing here. Though there are many active sea trout near the coast, it is always important to find them and move a lot while fishing.
“A sunset over the calm sea, a good beer with fishing friends and a couple of nice seatrouts…for a memorable evening”
As the water temperature rises, the salt tolerance of trout increases correspondingly. However, the water temperature can get too high along the coast so typically in June the sea trout head further out from the shore towards deeper, cooler waters. But…the shallow coastal waters are still very rich in food so the sea trout head for the coastline under cover of darkness, when water temperature is lower. At the same time, anglers can take advantage of the beautiful and very light summer evenings, therefor being on the coast for fishing in evenings, nights and sunrises can be very productive and give really nice catches.
“Now silver and “gold” seatrouts are mixed and active near the coast, what will be your next catch?”
By now, the majority of sea trout have spent the spring and summer gorging themselves, ready to cope with the strenuous autumn spawning migration, and building up supplies of roe and soft-roe. The autumn migration is generally in August-September. The fish recognize the start of autumn immediately and perceive their spawning migration is imminent. In Autumn sea trout are active near the coast, especially fjords and bays, often colored (freshwater spawning colours) and in nice conditions.
Togheter with Spring, Autumn is a top season for fishing seatrouts.
Sea trout fishing on Fyn between December and February can be unpredictable. The water is cold and the fish are not very active. In winter the trout that are not into the rivers for spawning, have a strong tendency to shoal and hunt together. If you are lucky enough to happen upon such a shoal, an unproductive day can suddenly turn into a real fairytale, but said that, it is a difficult fishing in cold conditions where the air temperature can be -10° or more.
