Her finder du en af Ærøs bedste forårspladser. Stykket består hovedsagelig af sten i varierende størrelser samt blæretang. Bunden er meget kuperet og indbyder ikke til vadefiskeri, hvilket heller ikke er nødvendig, da havørreden her fouragerer tæt under land. Der skal derfor også affiskes tæt under land. Fluefiskeri kan være et godt bud på at overliste en af de helt store kystørreder. Man har netop med fluen mulighed for at lade den hænge over lavt vand, hvor et tungere agn ikke vil kunne afsøge området omkring de store sten, da agn som blink og wobler hurtig vil komme i karambolage med sten og blæretang. At lade sin flue fiske meget tæt under land, er en metode, der stort set kan praktiseres på hele sydkysten. Når man går fra parkeringspladsen, kan man med fordel fiske til højre i den mørke rende, og ud til den første spids. Går man til venstre for parkeringspladsen, møder man flere små pynter samt et stykke med sand, hvor man godt kan vadefiske. Hvis man er den første på stedet om morgenen, skal man affiske sandet, der gennem tiden har kastet meget store fisk af sig. Stykket afsluttes af et langt og bredt blæretangsområde, hvor også lange kast kan være givende.

Bottom conditions
Rocks

Even though walking around on rocks along the coast may feel annoying, it’s often a good indicator of the presence of optimal bottom conditions for the sea trout and its food options. Everything from pebble to huge chunks of granite provides cover for sand hoppers, shrimp, and small fish. If there are waves, these food options are easily whirled up into the water column. A rocky bottom can be good all year round, but especially so during the cold months with few food options in the deeper water. A rocky bottom at a good depth also attracts other predatory fish such as cod and garfish.

Sand

In many fishing spots, large areas of the bottom are covered in sand, and often the coastal angler will skip these areas since they don’t seem like much. However, it’s worth considering that many small fish like sand eel and sprat often migrate across the sand bottom, and they have sea trout and other predatory fish chasing them. On days with waves, unclear water, or dimmed lighting, you’ll likely find predatory fish in these areas. The sandy areas along the deeper water or close to dark areas can be true sea trout magnets.

Current water

A fishing spot with current and good water flow is always a magnet during the warm months, when spots of this type will be rich in oxygen. Current water contains many food options that ride the current and thus attract the predatory fish. Current water can be good year round and particularly in combination with reefs, points, and banks.

Leopard bottom

A stretch of coast with sand bottom and scattered rocks covered in bladder wrack is often called leopard bottom, because it resembles the pattern found in the leopard’s fur. These bottom conditions are always important to fish, since the sea trout often hunts above the sand between seaweed bushes and rocks. The contrast between the sand and the food options along the bladder wrack provides the sea trout with an advantage during the hunt.

Rip channels

A rip channel is a deeper area between coast and bar, or an underwater groove of a significant depth. A rip channel usually has a dark bottom shaped by rocks and bladder wrack, but it can also consist of pure sand or gravel. You can’t avoid finding these rip channels on the coast, since they are some of the most common bottom conditions in Danish waters. The size of a rip channel varies greatly. Even the smallest rip channels, only a few meters wide, can contain many fish. The sea trout swims around these rip channels to hunt for food. In line with the tide, the fish cross the bars to reach the rip channel that’s closest to land, since that often contains the most food options.
