Inshore fishing in Southeastern and Southern Jutland

Southeastern and Southern Jutland is one of the best places for  inshore sea trout fishing in Denmark. The coast southward from Horsens Fjord to Als alternates with hooks, points and steep slopes, so there are many places where you have the possibility to catch fish from the coastline. The best time for inshore fishing is usually in March/May and again in September/November, when the fish really are to be found in the water near the shore. The coast of Denmark is approx. 7,300 km, and there is free admittance to it almost everywhere, if there is just a bit of sand between the sea and the cultivated areas.
