Kastor Makrillfiske

Mackerel fishing

Mackerel trolling is a part of Bohusläns heritage. In May the fish is approaching the coast water to play in the bays, and from June to September it is easy to catch it close to shore.

Fried mackerel is a delicacy for most west coast Swedes and it’s important to keep it cold from the capture until it reaches the frying pan. Also smoked mackerel is a pleasure to enjoy on a piece of local Hönö bread and some aioli.

Follow along on this fishing trip, a memorable experience for the whole family!
