Outdoor hobbies have skyrocketed in Denmark during the COVID-19 pandemic, with leisure fishing being one of them.

And aspiring anglers seem to be quite fortunate in living in Copenhagen, at least according to Serbia-based online fishing trip booker, FishingBooker.com.

FishingBooker.com hailed the Danish capital for its numerous fishing areas, even within the city centre itself. 

“The city’s port is one of the largest ports in the Baltic Sea and is very popular with anglers. Cod bite particularly well in the north and sea trout can be found on the Sluseholmen peninsula in the south,” the list stated.

“These two species also make an excellent dinner, while the consumption of eel, flounder and herring is not yet recommended, despite the quite clean water.”
