Week 31

Hello again! I guess you would like to know how the fishing is at the moment? Well, it is still somewhat tricky, and it has proven to be a c

hallenge finding the fish which seems to move all the time. During the past week they would hardly bite at all from time to time. But don`t lose your hope just yet! For there is still fish out here and “the fisherman that seeks shall find”. As we get closer to autum the fishing is bound to improve. As it is with most types of fishing, there are always a couple of less good days, eventhough it might seem like it is no good at the moment, we still see some nice fish. I mean Coalfish at 15+, cod around 20kg and dont forget the halibuts!

Week 30 It almost seems like the heatwawe from Europe did get it`s way upp here, since we had 30 degrees on the 29th. I guess

it`s a nice combination with both sun tanning and fishing. But so far the fishing is  a bit slow, and not really showing the best of what it can offer. We are offcourse still catching fish, and the greatest catch of the week was a 12 kg anglerfish taken on a fishing trip with charter boat Explrore the Arctic.  It also looks like a good time to try for flatfish (plaice dab) and there are still big coalfish to be found hanging around the steap ledges and the baitfish.

Week 29

Sunshine and calm winds, that’s how the past week has been! And I can only say that it’s great to finally get the summer

up here. The fishing on the other hand is a little strange to say the least. With catches verying each day  from a whole box full or almost nothing. Mainly because of sandeels and how they behave. In other words, small baits and a lot of looking around. But i think we will see some nice fish being caught quite soon. Especially if the weather continues to be as good as it is right now! I can also mention the we are starting to catch some mackerel. And they are really fun to catch on ultra ligth tackle.

Week 28

The winds have finally started to ease, and not a moment to soon!  The fish

ing has also been fair with catches of both big coalfish and halibut. Even though they are quite tricky to fool, many fish has seen the world above water for a short while. And many of the halibuts have been quite big! It seems like when the timing is right you also get the bites. Furthermore  we are finding more and more fish on the shallow plateaus. Mainly cod and coalfish. Eventhough it is almost no baitfish around! But I recon that as soon as the baitfish and the mackerel finds its way up here the fishing will just get better.


Week 26-27

A new fishing report to keep you updated on weather and fishing. We have

had many good days of sun and the weather has been quite good. This makes it possible to get to the really good fishing spots. Some cod and coalfish have been taken in different sizes, but perhaps is the most exciting thing to get out to the halibut spots. So far in July we have been able to do so, and in the last few days there have been surprisingly many halibut catches. The largest is 41,1kg and 144cm.  We will cross our fingers to keep the nice and warm summer days here in the north with little wind. Hopefully more nice catches will be caught so you can try your luck as well!

<strong>Week 24</strong>

In order to keep you updated about the weather, I can tell you that we have the same "cool" temperature and windy days as earlier this month. The summer has not found its way up to Northern Norway yet, but we have almost become used to constant wind and rain. Even the locals can not remember that there has been so much bad and cold weather in June ... But despite this, there have been a few days without wind and rain, and then fishing has been<span class="text_exposed_show"> quite good. We hope that July will be the month of sun and warmth. And if that's not the case, you're still welcome to come up here to cool off from the heat in Europe! </span>
<div class="text_exposed_show">

Cod fishing is quite good if you know where to look and there seems to be a mixed size of the fish in most places. There has also been a lot of nice size Coalfish (on spinning equipment!) and halibut fishing is probably the only fishing that has been stable throughout the season and is only expected to get better the more time goes by.

<strong>Week 22 and 23</strong>

Up here in the north we have not been spoiled with the nice and almost too hot weather as it is in the south of Norway, the temperatures actually differing over 30 degrees between north and south! We have had lots of wind, rain and even snow, so it has not been easy to get out on the open sea. But those days when it has been less windy, the fish has proved to be difficult to fool.

The catch has been small, but there are also some nice catches of wolffish and halibut. (even in the fjord) Talking about halibut, it might be appropriate to mention that a new camp record was caught! The fish was 219 cm long and with an exceptionally good condition. The weight was estimated of 150-160 kg before releasing her back to the depths. This was the second fish over two meters this season, and I think we will see a few more before the season ends...

<strong>Week 19 and 20, 2018</strong>

This report will be a summary of the fishing in recent weeks. With temperatures that vary as much as one could imagine. Everything from galeforce one day to flat sea the other.

So, let's say that it's a pretty good spring. And the feeling of summer has slowly but surely begun to come. It is still in deep water as most of the guests find Cod. (between 120-80 m) But it feels like it will soon be possible to find the bigger fish in some shallower water. We have started to see nice catches of Coalfish, and it is a very welcome feature of the fishery. Especially when they can be captured on light equipment. It has also been a dream start for Halibut fishing, and this seems promising for the rest of the season. We can also add that there has already been caught a halibut of 2 m and many fish around 1 m +. And now that the midnight sun is up, most of the fishing days will be longer.

Fishing week 33-34

Fishing these weeks has been a bit hard. The wind has been really strong so we have struggeled a lot to find shelter from the wind

. Some days though has been really good. Halibut on 25 kg and a lot of cod up to 13 kg. We have also heard that some guest has lost some really big fishes out in the area close to Auvær.

Fishing week 31-32

This weeks fishing has been a bit up and down. The fish has start to move around more and more again. So one day you will find the a

ctive fish on one spot and the next day it will be empty. But some big fish has been caught this week to. Coalfish on 16 kilos and a really nice summer cod on 20 kilos. The halibut fishing has calmed down a bit but they are still out there and it’s just a question of time before they strike again.
