Arrival At Sandbakken Norway Fishing Report

Arrival At Sandbakken Norway Fishing Report

Norway Fishing Report and we Start off where we ended yesterday… we never made it too bed, and yes we got the Shad rods out! Fishing at first light we managed around half an hour chucking shads in to the cold clear water but unfortunately to no avail!

It wasn’t long though before the whole group were up and ready to get out there and do some proper fishing from the boats. After a quick chat and a the plan was formed! The morning was glorious and the fjord was like a sheet of glass, starting off in some shallow bays and channels around a road bridge we fished for an hour or so, but the fish weren’t playing ball.

Moving into some slightly deeper water we managed to eventually find some fish, nothing massive but a steady stream of small Codling, Coalfish and Haddock kept all rods busy.

After exploring a few more area’s we headed in around two o clock, to grab a bite to eat and stock up on supplies and perhaps even grab an hours kip! Just as I started to drift off to sleep in the chair, I was quickly awoken by the word Halibut! One of the other boats had just arrived back from the mornings fishing and had landed a couple of real specimens! Wandering down to see them, we were greeted by the site of a nice Halibut which weighed in a touch over 50lb & a Cod weighing in at just over 27lb! A right result, well done lads! This only hightend our enthusiasm, and within a few minutes, fully loaded with some cracking Bacon & Sausage sandwiches! (Compliments to the chef!!!) We were back on the water by half four.

By now the weather had turned, and a grey drizzly mist filled the air, the water was no longer like a sheet of glass, but scruffy white horses could be seen all across the bay. Not to be put off we stuck with the original plan and headed way out west to some old area’s we had fished the previous year, in the hope of connecting with something bigger. Unfortunately it didn’t happen, but again we enjoyed some excellent sport, with more Cod, Haddock and Ling (Torsk..?!) making an appearance. All caught on light pirking set up’s in 40-60 metres of water it was all good fun!

We arrived back just as darkness fell, rustled up a quick meal, made the most out of our cabins Sauna and headed off to bed! Well most of us did! I am still here writing the blog, but rest assured I will be very soon! Even though I am still a young spring chicken! forty eight hours without sleep is plenty long enough!

Until tomorrow Paul

    Hi Bass Boy, at this time of year you can fish from 5 in the morning till 9 at night. But in a month you will be able to fish 24 hours a day, as it doesnt get dark. There are no limits! As the boats are self drive, you fish as much or as little as you want!
