Unbelievable Day’s Sea Fishing North Norway The sea fishing reports from North Norway are flooding in at the moment and the target species is undoubtedly the Halibut.
Yet again it’s our camp simply called Å on the Lofoten Islands that is throwing up lots of Halibut and the size of them is huge. This little report is from just one days fishing from one boat with 2 anglers fishing and the more you read the more you will come to realise that the fishing in Å is fast becoming the best Norway has to offer.
The day was Monday 27thy June 2016 and with two guests in the guide boat they set out early to target the Halibut and try to beat the previous days fishing. So with the first drift set for Halibut it took only a couple of minutes before the first bite from Norway’s hardest fighting fish, the Halibut. After some hard work out they soon had their first fish of the day to the boat. Quickly measured at 121cm and photos taken it was released so they could carry on fishing.
The first Halibut of the day was simply stunning
Literally minutes later the other angler got a pull and they were on again, this time the angler played the fish like a demon and soon had it beaten by the side of the boat this one was 120cm and after a few pictures was released.
What a start to the day, but that wasn’t the end for these two lucky anglers. A new fishing mark was found and down went two Crazy Daizy 400gr shads rigged with a curly tail and after a very short period of jigging one of the anglers let out another shout of ‘Fish On’ and another Halibut was reeled in. This one was even bigger than the last two at an impressive 127cm and with the photos taken she soon had her freedom.
Perfectly secured for a quick release
Smile guys, you are famous!
The guide mentioned to the guests that today was going to be one of those days that nothing could go wrong and that they should fish hard as it could well be the best fishing day of their lives.
They just keep coming
So with this in mind back down went the lures to see if there was anything else at home and whack a double hook up. Both anglers had hooked Halibut, which one would be bigger? They soon had these Halibut beaten and with them both tied to the boat ready for pictures the anglers just slumped into their seats with a look of disbelief and the amazing fishing they were experiencing.
Not something you see everyday
What stunning looking Halibut
Now the guide asked them if they fancied going to a new spot to see if they could get one of the monsters to feed and they looked at each other and both said ‘YES PLEASE’
With the new mark found, down went the same shads and they fished hard willing a bigger Halibut to take and after around 1 hour drifting a loud screaming noise came from one of the reels and they were in yet again. This time the guide could see it was a big one and with some great angling and some careful manoeuvring of the boat they had the big one they came for.
The fish was carefully secured to the side of the boat so she could recover whilst they took some cracking pictures and by the looks of things it was a cracker and a massive congratulations to the anglers who fished this day as we are sure that this day will stay with them for a very long time. The Halibut was measured at an impressive 154cm estimated at around 50kg.
The biggest of the day was the last Halibut of the day
After this Halibut the guys were feeling the burn and both decided that they should head back for a well-deserved beer and some relaxation. What would their last days fishing on the stunning Lofoten Islands have in stall for them?
Forgot to mention they also had some cracking Cod
