Two New Camp Records North Norway Report


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.

“370LB’s Halibut from Norway”


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.

“Huge 83LB Cod landed”


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.

      Thanks Nigel the guys are still over the moon. That Halibut is special it took him ages to land, Havoysund is the place of dreams

    Hi Sportquest. My group of friends have given me the job of enquiring about a trip to Norway and this looks perfect. We are looking at May June next year can you give me an idea of prices for these two places in Norway?

    We have not been before so we feel like we need some help in organising the whole thing.

    Hopefully you can help us

    1. Paul Stevens Sportquest

      Hello Nigel both destinations in Norway are fantastic I especially like Havoysund. Feel free to email me anytime on and we can talk through the trips as would ideally like to send you some where that would fit your requests.

      Hopefully we will catch up soon

      All the best
