First in our Fishing Report Norway I would like to start with our camp called Sandbakken, which is near Bardufoss Airport in the Troms region of Northern Norway. This camp is where it all started for me and it was also Sportquest Holidays first ever Norway destination so we have a great history with this camp.
|Huge Wolf fish||Perfect Family Camp||Lovely Cod|
I actually run a Hosted trip to this camp each year with a huge amount of success, just take a look at my previous Fishing Report Norway. This camp has some of the kindest and most welcoming hosts you could wish for, a family run business, you will not go far wrong with a trip there. It is ideal for small groups; families and large groups are all are catered for. The peak months for this camp are April and May but the summer months are also very productive
|Brave Boy||Very proud Boy||Great Shot|
The next camp in my Fishing Report Norway that keeps catching my eye is Havoysund, this camp can be found at the most Northerly point in Norway you can physically get to. If you fancied an adventure then this is the camp for you. It is world famous for its superb Halibut fishing and huge shoals of hard fighting Cod.
|Great Halibut||Huge Cod|
The camp is very professionally run with guides on hand 24hrs a day and you even receive your first days fishing guided FREE of charge, what a way to kick off your holiday. The guides will come aboard your boat and show you the ropes and take you to some of their secret spots…. On your other fishing days you can simply follow the guide boat taking out the need to struggle with locating the fish if it’s your first trip. One other huge bonus is the fact you get FREE breakfast every day of your holiday
|Party Time||The Winning Team|
At Havoysund the guides strongly promote catch and release on most Halibut, this way it helps to protect the amazing fishing for future anglers
|Massive Halibut||Havoysund||Perfect Month For Halibut|
Lastly in this Fishing Report Norway is a camp that is fishing very well and that is Lofoten, which is a little piece of land that sticks out from the mainland making for some very good and almost weather proof fishing. Giving you sea on one side and the protected fjords on the other.
|Great Looking Cod||Plaice||Guided fishing|
The fishing grounds around this camp are perfect for huge Halibut and massive Plaice, with the grounds being made up of mostly sand and only being about 30 – 40mtrs deep, makes for the perfect fishing areas for flat fish. Each day we get reports of several large Halibut caught and scores of Plaice to around the 8lb mark.
|They are getting bigger||Double shot||They are not all massive|
The camp offers two styles of accommodation, one in a standard cabin or the other in a very stylish 10 bed cabin for the larger groups out there. With the large cabin you get two boats so plenty of room to fish and also with this camp there are guides on hand 24hrs a day who will gladly jump on your boat and help with as much as you need.
|Another double stab||Catch and Release|
If you are looking for a good mixed fishing trip with lots of different species then look no further than Lofoten
