We set out for wrecks in the months of October, November, March, April and May (we do not take to the sea in December, January and February). Cod love to swim around the many wrecks that dot the floor of the North Sea, and our captain will take you to the very best spots: all you have to do is reel in the cod.

Our fishing boat, De Mercuur, is a large ship and is fully equipped to turn your day of cod fishing into a great adventure. Our ship features state-of-the-art equipment to help locate wrecks, and the skipper has radar, GPS, a plotter and an echo sounder at his disposal to track the cod and give you the chance to go sport fishing.
There is plenty of space to reel in cod on our ample deck, and the ship also features spacious cleaning tables, on which you can clean and fillet your catch. At the end of the day, you will have a deliciously clean and fresh portion of cod fillet to take home.

Cod (Gadus Morhua) is a fish commonly found in the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. They can grow up to a size of 150 centimetres, but average about 85 centimetres. Cods feel most at ease at a depth of 20 to 600 metres. Every year, adult cods return to their birthplace to spawn. Thanks to its delicious taste and loose structure, cod is a popular ingredient for many dishes. Cod mainly feeds on mussels, small lobsters, shrimp, small fish and crabs.
In addition to cod fishing, we also offer several other fishing trips for anglers. We can also take you on mackerel fishing, wreck fishing and sea fishing trips. Book your day of fishing on our booking calendar.
