Fishing from the pier in Hvide Sande

Fishing in the North Sea and Ringkøbing Fjord


The North Sea area is any angler’s dream. There’s water everywhere and therefore also a lot of species of fish.

For example, have a go at the Skjern Å Salmon, the giant monkfish in the North Sea, or the massive numbers of herring that travel to the water locks in Hvide Sande to spawn each spring. No matter whether you are wet behind the ears or practically an old seadog, the Ringkøbing Fjord area is guaranteed to have the perfect fishing spot for you. Within a short distance you will find both The North Sea, Ringkøbing Fjord, the river Skjern Å, and put & take lakes to fish. And please remember: the best fishing gear gives you the advantage! If you forgot your fishing pole and bait, there are plenty of well-assorted tackle shops in Ringkøbing, Tarm, Skjern, and Hvide Sande.
