Good things come to those who wait, is the moral of this story. With the weather finally breaking and the seas calming the guys are catching what they went to Norway for. Kevin McKie has sent us his last report for this great hosted trip to Havoysund.

 

FISHING REPORT

Finally on the last two day’s of my guided trip the weather was perfect, no wind, just perfect condition’s for working the lures and bait for halibut. We had some catching up to do because the weather had been so bad for the first half of the holiday. All the lad’s fished hard and managed to land some very nice fish. We totalled 35 halibut between 5 boat’s, the biggest was 162cm (60kg) to James Flynn he also caught one of 151cm.

The best tasting fish in Norway

In just two day’s we managed to turn the trip around, it just goes to show how good Havoysund really is. I can not imagine how the fishing would of been if we had good weather all week.

“World class destination”

Well done to all the lad’s for making my first trip to Havoysund a success. A very big thank you to the camp guide’s for putting us on the fish, local knowledge is everything no matter where you go in the world.
