Fishing SOS

Fishing South of Sweden (SOS) offers deep sea fishing on the Baltic for beginners and pros. Our specialty is cod fishing on wrecks and stone ridges – exactly what is so appreciated now. The M/S Baltic Explorer skipper knows where to find wrecks. In the spring we fish for sea trout and garfish running our all-round boat along the coast.


At Fishing SOS we speak Swedish and English.


We fish all year round if it is open water. Cod – year-round. Sea run trout – spring/summer. Salmon - spring/summer. Garfish - spring. Herring - spring/summer/autumn. Turbot – spring/autumn.

Other activities

Swimming and family trips. Beautiful sundown trips with champagne on the sun deck while enjoying the historic silhouette of Wallander’s hometown. Tour to Kåseberg – see the legendary Ales Stenar ship setting and visit an eel smoking facility.
