The camp of Havoysund is world-famous for its summer Halibut fishing and Plaice fishing with some incredible monster fish being snared here each year. Your day will start off with breakfast in the restaurant and you will then make your way to your boat for the day ahead. The guides on the camp will be on hand in the mornings to offer advice on the best places for Halibut or to target a particular species. They will also offer any advice on rigs and tactics. With such a wide variety of marks to fish, you will never run out of new places to head to in your search for that monster you crave.
When Halibut fishing you can either use shads or dead bait. Shading is done by lowering a lure down to a depth you wish to fish at and then by moving the rod in a motion that resembles an injured fish, you will entice predatory fish to strike at the lure. Dead baiting is carried out by using Halibut anti-twist leads and rigs which will enable the Halibut to hit the fish bait you are using, this is a very successful method accounting for many fish each year.
Halibut fishing isn’t all you’ll be doing. The Plaice fishing in Havoysund is fantastic with many big spotty flatfish being caught each year. The best method to catch these fish is by drifting baited hooks over the clean sandy ground. One of the best baits for the Plaice fishing is frozen prawn which can be purchased from the local supermarket.
