Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a paradise for sport fishermen. Anglers can choose between the salty Baltic Sea and one of the many inland lakes and rivers.
Depending on whether the waters of the fishing grounds are fresh or salty, you will encounter different species of fish: From huge carp, to eel and salmonide and on to a flat flounder, you can hook almost anything.
Before you make yourself at home on one of the numerous jetties, you need the right licence. Membership in a rod club promises access to waters rich in fish.
To fish in the Baltic Sea and its Boddens – coastal inlets or embayments – you have to take some particular factors into consideration: strong currents, waves and fog banks have already troubled many a fisherman. Before starting off into one of the shallow waters in your water-proof waders or venturing out in your boat, you should acquire some basic knowledge about fishing in the Baltic Sea.
When you are well prepared, there is only one more thing to wish you: a good catch!
