Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's inland is a unique angler's paradise with over 2,000 lakes and countless rivers and canals. With this selection, there is a suitable area and the right fish for every angler.

The river crossing of Trebel, Tollense and Peene is one of the freshwater areas with the most fish in the Federal Republic. Here, near Demmin, 35 species have already been recorded. Lake Plauer See and several other large lakes have brought vacationers ten-kilo pike on several occasions. In the Schmalen Luzin and Tollensesee lakes, vendace living at great depths are hooked.

Top 6 fish in the lakes and rivers:

  • Eel
  • Brown trout
  • Perch
  • Pike
  • Carp
  • Pikeperch

Saltwater fish - Unique variety at coast and Bodden

Endless wide beaches, dense reed belts and quiet bays promise fishing pleasure at the highest level. And under the surface of the water you can find almost everything with bones.

On the Baltic Sea, the fishing year begins in February - when the water is ice-free - with the stalking of sea trout. From March onwards, the herring come to the coast in huge shoals to spawn. Even inexperienced anglers pull them out of the cold waters in rows. This is also the peak season for salmon trolling. In April, angling for garfish begins on the beaches, piers and jetties. Flatfish are coveted prey in May. From May, the two-month pike protection period ends in the Bodden waters - the hunting season for the really big fish is then opened.

Good pike hotspots can be reached with waders for example in the Großer Jasmunder Bodden, in the area of the Wittower Ferry, in the Kubitzer Bodden south of Barhöft or in the Greifswalder Bodden near Tremt., © TMV/Läufer

Top 6 fish in the Baltic Sea:

 
  • Cod

    The "leopard of the sea" is a popular target fish on guided cutter fishing trips in the Baltic Sea and can be fished well with pilks or rubber bait all year round. The marbled predator is the number one saltwater species in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is best caught with surf and spinning gear in early summer and late fall. In the spring and winter months, when the cod retreat to deeper water, fishing enthusiasts follow them on guided cutter trips. Specimens weighing between five and ten kilograms are not uncommon then.
     
  • Garfish

    Shortly after the herring - when the rape blossoms in rich yellow - the elongated garfish with the green bones cavort in the coastal areas of the Baltic Sea. For generations, the people of Mecklenburg have been awaiting the silver fish with their grass-green bones in their thousands and thousands in the spring (May and June) - after all, they know about the pleasure of a crispy fried or golden smoked hornfish. With the spinning and fly rod or a float assembly the tasty horn pike are very easy to catch.

    The chances of catching garfish are also good when fishing from a cutter. A few hundred meters off the coast, the silver arrows swarm in late spring, so that dozens of garfish can be pulled out of the water within a very short time. Throughout the year, one or the other "Horni" ends up as by-catch in the fishing baskets of the anglers.

  • Herring

    The silver gold of the Baltic Sea streams to the coasts from March to spawn. However, smaller shoals can also be found in the Baltic Sea throughout the year.

    The start of the herring season in March in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is like a public festival. In many places, anglers then occupy the piers, jetties and quaysides in pursuit of the silver gold of the Baltic Sea. Until May, thousands upon thousands of fish come to the coast to spawn. From the cutter the herrings are then also easy to bait. But also throughout the year the herring can be found in smaller schools in the Baltic Sea. A look at the echo sounder usually tells the captains the exact location to aim the boat above the shoal.

    Although targeted trips for herring tend to be the exception, fishing enthusiasts should always have a herring paternoster or two at the ready. If the cutter encounters a shoal, a quick conversion of the mount is paramount to returning to port with full catch boxes at the end of the trip. The herring can then be processed in a variety of ways as rolled mops, fried or smoked.
  • Mackerel

    Like herring and garfish, mackerel can be found in large shoals and can be fished from the cutter using special mackerel paternosters. It is not only one of the most popular food fish in Germany, but also captivates by its unusual appearance.

    Mackerel are easily recognizable by their torpedo-shaped body and blue-green mottled pattern. Like herring and garfish, mackerel gather in large schools, which makes fishing particularly interesting. Thus, within a very short time, sometimes 20 or more fish can be caught at the same spot.

    Fishing from a cutter promises the greatest success in pursuing the predatory cat among sea fish. The mackerel is found in the Baltic Sea only sporadically after intensive commercial fishing, but in recent years there has been an increase in catch reports. If the cutter crosses a school of mackerel, this promises to be a successful fishing day for the anglers on board. Above all, circling seagulls reveal to captains possible locations where targeted fishing for mackerel is worthwhile.
     
  • Flatfish

    Plaice, flounder and dab are an ideal alternative to cod - anglers can use natural bait to lure the tasty flatfish out of hiding.

    It doesn't always have to be cod. The "flatfish" can also be fished well from the cutter. Especially when the cod is not in the mood to bite, plaice, flounder and dab are ideal alternatives. As so-called hunters, they are usually found in the sandy seabed and lie in wait for their prey there. With natural baits such as lugworms, pieces of herring or whole tobias, anglers can lure the fish out of their hiding place.

    Flatfish sometimes reach amazing sizes and are very popular as food fish thanks to their excellent taste . Therefore, the next trip with the cutter should not be without the natural bait assembly.
  • Whiting

    The small relatives of the cod are found in greater water depths of the Baltic Sea and therefore ideal to fish from the cutter from late summer to autumn.

    The fishing season for the small relative of the cod begins in late summer and ends in the autumn months. Whiting can usually only be fished from a boat, as they prefer greater water depths of 20 meters and more. The first bite is usually followed by others, because unlike cod, whiting do not travel in small groups, but in whole shoals. If the cutter passes through such a shoal, it is definitely worthwhile to change the assembly. It is often caught as a by-catch in the cod hunt. The very low-fat meat makes the whiting very popular as a food fish.
