If you dream of catching a real “monster”fish, you should head for the deep waters offshore where the big fish can be found.
Langeland, with its 152km long coastline, offers plenty of good fishing - all year round. The island’s location, between the warm shallow waters of the archipelago and the cooler Baltic seas has created an exceptional habitat, and the perfect conditions for growth, for many different species of fish.

The arrival of huge numbers of garfish along Langeland’s coast in the late spring is an event that even the most experienced fisherman here looks forward too! You can catch garfish from just about every fishing spot on Langeland. You can easily combine fishing fishing for them with fishing for seatrout and makrel, as all three species are often found in the same areas.
Cod are most active around dawn and sunset, when the fish move closer to land to search for fod. A typical cod caught in the seas off Langeland weighs between 2 - 6 kg and is 35 -70cm long. The older cod get, the deeper the water they live in, so if you fish from a boat it is possible to catch cod of around 10kg.
