Part 2 Kevin McKie Hosted Havoysund Norway

Second part of our very popular Hosted Havoysund North Norway trip is looking much better with regards to the weather. The fishing grounds are now reachable and the anglers are starting to catch lots of Halibut. Kevin McKie is trying to keep us up to date with reports but we have been very busy in the office this week as it’s a peak time for us for anglers travelling a round the world, so sorry for the delay in reports (Especially sorry Albert Lennox)

FISHING REPORT

The weather forecast was meant to be much better over the last few days but as always in northern Norway the weather had over ideas.

At times we where traveling in very big seas sometimes 5 to 6 meters just to get to sheltered marks out of the wind and swell.

Peter braves the bad weather

The fishing has been very hard with only a few boxes of cod and the odd halibut at best, for a full 8 to 10 hours fishing.

“Drew lands his first Halibut”

There were some very lucky anglers in our party, Owen and Jason both caught there first halibut 117cm and 118cm.

A perfect Halibut from Havoysund

Drew landed a 70lb halibut his first ever and old Albert Lennox caught one hell of a huge Halibut at at a 100LB and 149cm so a massive well-done Albert especially deciding to catch and release.

Albert finally gets his prize

Some of the lads have had some very good plaice fishing just out side the harbour most are in the 2lb to 3lb range.

“Brilliant Plaice fishing”

The last two days are forecast 10mph or less so we are planning two very long days and nights, so watch this space!!

    The Halibut fishing looks very good. Whats the best month to travel there? Plus can we hire tackle as our little UK boat rods do not look man enough for those Halibut

    1. Paul Stevens Sportquest

      Hi Kerry, yes the Halibut fishing is pretty awesome at Havoysund. The Halibut fishing is very good from mid May to end of August. I prefer August as the weather is more settled but the Cod fishing is not great in August.

      Yes you can hire everything at the camp and all top quality gear

      Hope that helps

    As winner of the King of the catch sea category, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sportquest Holidays and Angling Direct , on behalf of my Nephew Drew Nelson, and myself Albert Lennox, for this trip of very successful fishing, in Havoysund, to beat my last halibut weight of 18LB by over 100LB was amazing, my and to be beaten the next day by my nephew Drew, by 3 cm or 5LB was nice to see the young blood in our family keeping up the fishing success, I had almost 2 blank days of fishing for big cod but it is not over until the fishing is over, and 1 hour before, the end of the final day I caught a large 44LB cod and this was 1LB below my personal best at Soroya of 45LB I would like to thank our Guides, Kevin Mc Kie, Sebastian, and not but least the champion of all guides Ulf Hugen, who was very good in helping my Nephew Drew with all the fishing knowledge of this type of fishing, but mainly having the patience with me ,the one he calls crazy Albert ( in a joke ) this is the 4th time I have fished Norway, 3 different camps and places, with originally with ANGLING DIRECT HOLIDAYS (2 ) and SPORTQUEST HOLIDAYS (2), I would also like to thank the lads that we shared our cabin with ,Peter, Paul, and not forgetting Rob a great bunch, and very good sea anglers ,for to be mainly carp anglers. If there are any sponsors, who would like me to demo, or test their sea fishing tackle you can contact me by email as I am fishing sea and game fishing competitions all year.
