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.

Fishing week 29-30.
This weeks fishing has been really good, now has all the mackerel finally arrived and you can fish them just outside the cabin on

the jetty. We also have a really good cod and halibut fishing for the moment and the biggest fishes this week is: halibut  52 kg,  halibut 30 kg and cod on 15 kg+. So the fish has start to move around more and are more active than the last weeks.


Fishing week 27 – 28:
Now the really big coalfish has started to come into the fjords

and also the baitfish that they are hunting on. The fishing has been really good the last two  weeks, but the best fishing has been on the evening and nights. It is remarkable that it  is still the halibut fishing which for some reason excels.The small torpedos are also arrived and then we are talking about the makrell. So it is a lot of activity in the water and that’s really funny to see, after some hard weeks of fishing. The water temperature is now around 10 to 13 + degrees. That’s a good temperature for the baitfish to go up on more shallow spots, and even better for the big predators that are circling around the tops waiting for smaller fish to do something wrong and then strike it.

Week 24-25, and the fishing looks very much like it did last week. Water temperatures around 8-11 degrees Celsius. It has been a couple of days with winds from the

north, cooling the water down. That has  made the cod fishing really tough making the fish move to deeper water. Despite this the halibut fishing seems to be more productive choice with a lot of fish being caught (and lost;). They might vary in size but a halibut is still a halibut, the biggest one so far is a nice fish at 65 kg ( 166 cm ). That is really a dream catch for many anglers! The fishing will most likely get even better, so who knows how long it will take before somebody catches an even bigger one?
We are crossing our fingers and wish for some warm wind from the South, which makes the cod and the coalfish to move up on the shallow points and grounds.
