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.

We just passed week 23 and we can announce that summer finally reached Northern Norway and Kvaløya. Both guides and anglers report a varied fishing last week


The fish now begins to move towards shallower water, but we still find the best fishing at depths between 30-60m. The best catches so far is halibut, where we had a lot of fishes of 5-10kg. The biggest so far this season is a 31kg halibut and summer cod of approx 17kg. The fishing is definitely going on and it is really remarkable that the water temperature now has risen from 4-11 degrees in only a few days.
