Perfect Shore Fishing Baits for Norway

When fishing in Norway from the shore there is a wide variety of things that you need to get right to ensure that you have the best trip you can. One of the main things that you need to ensure is spot on though is your bait. You need good quality bait to give you the best possible chance of catching the most fish, old rubbish bait just will not really cut it here and those with the better bait really will catch more fish.

Here I will give you the run-down of the baits I would suggest using when fishing in Norway.

Shore Fishing Clothing For Norway

Norway is a land known for its amazing fishing, anglers travel here year after year to sample the fantastic sea fishing that this destination has to offer. Being as close to the Arctic circle as Norway means that you could be fishing in some extremely inhospitable weather, the temperatures here can plummet to well below freezing with severe snow storms as well and for you to enjoy your fishing here you will need to be dressed correctly.

As the saying goes there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing. Here we will take you through some clothing we would recommend to you so you enjoy your Norwegian shore fishing holiday.

Recommended Shads For Fishing In Norway

Norway is the destination many UK anglers wish to head to, anglers flock there every year in their droves to target the jumbo cold-water species that can be found in the waters out there. Nearly all the fishing is done from boats and rather than using baits the desired method to snare one of these beasts is a shad or jig. I will take you through some of the recommended designs that I would suggest taking with you.
