Shore fishing

The waters surrounding Grímsey are rich of fish and it is therefore easy for those with the right equipment to catch e.g. Cod and Coalfish along the coast. The island has sheer cliffs on the north side, but accessible rock ledges and boulder beaches on the south side e.g. by the old wind turbine. Another accessible spot is by the commercial harbour which is flanked by a protective breakwater with casting access left and right of the marker post to a deeper ship channel. The depth there falls in to about 30-feet 40-yards, but gets deeper further out.

Shore fishing is possible most of the year
