Two New Camp Records North Norway Report from this weekend and you will be amazed at what they have just landed at two of our camps in Northern Norway setting two NEW CAMP RECORDS in the shape of a huge Halibut and a monster Cod. The camps in question are Lofoten Islands for the Halibut and Havoysund for the Cod.
Our destination on the Lofoten Islands called Å is and has been for a while been producing some huge Halibut and this is due to the well-known Moskenesströmmen that is located nearby and is one of the strongest maelstroms in the world.
Here, the difference between high and low tides vary by almost four meters and the water can move at up to 6 knots! The Halibut caught this weekend was measured at 230cm and estimated to weigh 170kilo’s (370LB’s)
The Halibut go on the feed when this tide is in full swing as all the baitfish get disorientated making them an easy snack for the waiting Halibut.
The next new camp record is from Havoysund in the shape of a huge Cod at 37.5 Kilo, which for this time of year is huge. The Skrei Cod are hanging around Havoysund this year and anglers are managing to catch lots of big Cod.
