Dear kolegues

I am from Lithuania. I wish to try catch MeFo's on Germany coast. As I have busines trip to Germany from 10 till 14th November, I schedule to visit Northern Germany in 8-9th November and on 15th November.
I planning to fish near Kiel or on Fehmarn. It is good idea for November? What about Rugen coast? I need waders or bellyboat too?
Perhaps some fishermans would like to recommend area for coast fishing on Ostsee?
P.S.: my German "ist sehr schlecht" (this forum I was read with translator). If is possible answer on english, but in German answer is welcome too.

Hello,

my suggestion: better go to (South)Denmark. It is only one hours drive from Kiel. Fishing in Denmark is a lot easier and the chance to get a seatrout is probably better here. You can purchase the fishing license very comfortable over the internet.
www.fisketegn.dk

It is not so easy an more expensive to get a license in Germany. There will be no problems in Denmark because of the protected season (16.11-15-01). In Germany the protected season is more restictive and longer.

Last but not least the danish coasts are less crowded than in Germany.


November is not the best month for Seatrout. The mayority of fish will be in the rivers at that time. On the coast you will find smaller fish (about 30-45 cm called greenlander) and few big fish, who don´t go to the rivers this season to reproduce themselves.

Good luck #h

G'day Taacis,

welcome - always interesting to see who reads this forum. I heard sea trout fishing is not too bad in your region of the baltic sea either - so interesting that you are coming here to try :q:q

I am NOT the best person to give you advice, as i am fishing for sea trout only very infrequently these days as i am not Germany based anymore (and i have only caught 1 fish this year so far in my 3 outings) but I thought i make a start and then others can comment.
I think you will find November to be a good time. Already fishing is picking up again and some nice trout are being caught and i think it will only get better over the course of the next 2 months...
Only problem will be that a lot of fish are moving into the rivers to spawn and there might be a fair amount of fish around that are full of roe and would better be released. However, fish will likely be in markedly better condition than in January/February after spawning - when most fish are caught (in miserable condition)...

There is nothing wrong to fish near Kiel or on Fehmarn, but pretty much all areas along the coast will produce trout. I think you are best off to select one area to fish and focus on that, rather than trying to travel up and down the coast - given you only have little time. Also, I think 1000 anglers will have 2000 ideas about the best spots - so i would be opportunistic about it (what is close by and has good structure)...
Best to maximise your time fishing rather than travelling!:q:q

Also you MUST bring your waders, if you have a belly boat that could be a good idea as well. All beaches i know (limited to far north of Germany) you will have to wade unless you fish at night or when fish are really in close.

You can try both fly rod and lure. Both produce fish. I won't go into any detail about lures, flies, etc - as other people will have a much better idea about what is working than me (Just as a general idea usually 16-20gr would be most common lure weight, i'd say, and a slim lure that imitates little herring or smelt, etc. would be good idea). Anyway, i guess you might do some sea trout fishing in your area and your own lures will likely catch trout here as well - given pretty much all the lures you find in use on the German coast come from Scandinavia without any adaptation...

No matter where you go you would be well advised to go and talk to a local tackle shop to ask for details - you will find them anywhere, just google for tackle shop or "Angelgeraete" and your specific location... You will need to go there anyway - as I think you will need to purchase a visitor fishing permit even for the baltic sea (not sure exactly how that works, i think you just rock up and buy it at the tackle shop for few Euros)

Hope that helps somewhat & hope you'll enjoy your time fishing in good old Germany
Cheers
A

G'day Taacis,

I heard sea trout fishing is not too bad in your region of the baltic sea
But we have problem with wind direction (and with waves)... West direction wind is much more popular on winter-spring season. And wind from east was about one time per month and normaly this period is about 1- 2 days... High waves is normaly waves on Lithuanian sandy beach. By the way on spring lithuanian angler time to time cach salmons (not only seatrout) on beach.

Regards

Dear Taacis,

here`s a good overview over the local hotspots
http://www.cdj-fischer.de/
"einige schöne Stellen"

I understand u go fishing on the weekends - the spots in Kiel (my hometown) are heaviely overrun by that time.

Bülk and Belleveue offer good cod fishing, though - might be an interesting new aspect for u.

On the upside, I haven`t been asked for a fishing licence in 15 years, local (kiel) authorities are somewhat sloppy in fishing terms. :)

If u want trouble-free all legal good fishing without having to purchase an expensive license during office hours, sorry to say, denmark it is. (as said above)

U can purchase one of these "angelführer Als"
http://www.buecher.de/shop/Daenemar...do/products_products/detail/prod_id/23449218/
online or in a german Tackle shop, plenty of good local information about Als and the surraounding Flensborg-Sonderborg region, 1 1/2h of driving from Hamburg.

Hope that was help

best regards

Frank
