North Norway Sea Fishing Report June


The Season in North Norway so far has been outstanding and it’s the Halibut that are making a massive appearance at most of our camps and guys are spending more and more time targeting these huge flatfish.



I will start with our most northerly destination in Norway called Havoysund. Havoysund is home to some of the finest Halibut fishing in Norway and is home to our very next fully hosted trip where I will be taking 12 people to do battle with some of Norway’s finest fish species.

“Havoysund home to our next Hosted Trip”

Havoysund has not been letting people down so far this season and the large amount of anglers we are sending over there are coming back with excellent stories of fish they have landed and of course the ones that got away which are always the biggest ones!

Now that is a big one


Next destination is Nappstraumen located half way down the Lofoten Islands. The Halibut fishing has been a little slower than normal but anglers are still managing to land a few monsters. The Cod and Coalfishing on the North side is as always outstanding and the anglers fishing there are having great sport.

“The best Plaice fishing in Norway”

The Plaice fishing at Nappstraumen is some of the best any where in Norway. Boats that are spending time targeting them have found top class sport minutes away from the camp.



Plaice like this one fight very well on the right tackle


One of the hardest fighting fish in Norway


Nice hat Colin


Nappstraumen area is top class for Plaice

The next on our report is Å, which is a camp on the very bottom of the Lofoten Islands and by the looks of it; it has been fishing the best. The sheer amount of Halibut has been unreal for June with anglers sometimes boating as many as 9 fish a day… Its not just the Halibut fishing that has been outstanding as the Coalfish are now there in their thousands and some big ones as well.



Å is fishing very well this season


Triple hook up!!


Huge summer Cod


Catch & release is encouraged


Mind your fingers

Sandbakken is our next stop and is also throwing up some monster Halibut for the anglers going out and hunting them down. The Coalfish are still present in the fjord and once located the anglers are having a ball catching them on all sorts of methods.



Huge Cod

Last but not least is Mefjord Brygge and check out their new boat below. The fishing has been very good with lots of Halibut being caught along with boatloads of Cod and Coalfish. The restaurant onsite is also waiting to prepare all your lovely caught fresh fish so what are you waiting for.

The onsite restaurant is first class

    There is a group of 4 of us who want to go and try for some big Coalfish. We have watched your youtube video of the surface action and have become obsessed with try to catch them. What time of year would be best for this?

    1. Paul Stevens Sportquest

      Hi Dave, Å in Norway is one of the best places for Coalfish and is where the surface action video was filmed.

      If you want you can email me on if thats easier?

      Look forward to speaking with you soon


      1. Dave
