Hering

May and April are top season for herring fishing at the lock in Hvide Sande. The herring flock through the lock to get into the fjord to spawn, this creating a bottleneck where the fish concentrate and are easy for anglers to catch. 
   
Herring are caught with a snell (forfang in Danish) which is available from the local sports shops. Herring fishing is a cheap and family-friendly activity where everybody can participate, and the chance of a catch for dinner is almost guaranteed.
