Coast and pier fishing

Coast and pier fishing is easy to go do - so easy that even the children can join in. At the same time, however, the coast also offer challenges for experienced fishermen.

At the coast there is a good chance of catching fish, because many species of fish come close to land to look for food - often within the reefs.

In Løkken, you can fish from the pier - however, pay attention to signs with any prohibition.

There is a good opportunity to catch many different fish all year round, e.g. flatfish, cod and mackerel. See more about which fish you can catch here.
