Tour Code NOR025

Vesteralen Mixed Species Fishing

Welcome to Vesterålen Norway fishing, located in Norway’s north, surrounded by some of Norway’s most stunning landscape. Known locally as the ‘Kingdom of the Whales’, it is home to a vast population of different Whales species. This gorgeous Island is north of the world-famous Lofoten Islands and the Arctic circle. The archipelago of Vesterålen reaches out westwards from the mainland of Norway and into the Atlantic ocean.

How popular our other Norway fishing destinations have become on the Lofoten Islands has led us to research this area of Vesteralen Norway fishing and try to bring you new exciting destinations that offer the same world-class fishing opportunities. Vesterålen will open up some significant fishing areas. We like to class as almost weatherproof as you have access to two massive fjords, Jörnfjorden, where the Lodges are, and Eidsfjorden is just a 5-minute ride away. This camp has two guides on it all times, meaning that you will always have a guide on the base who will offer advice on where to fish and what tactics to use.

Sea Fishing Vesterålen

What makes Vesteralen good

The destination of Vesterålen in Norway found on the Eidsfjorden, a long deep fjord with depths as deep as 200mtrs and has many plateaus, peaks, and structures that will hold big Cod and Coalfish all year round. The are has proved to be an excellent area for Redfish and huge Ling. There are some tremendous sandy plateaus on the Vesteralen Norway fishing trip close to the land on the sides of this fjord, which will offer fantastic Halibut fishing along with Plaice and Dabs.

The main attraction to Vesterålen will be the species fishing you will find on offer; it is one of the best places for a wide variety of species as the pressure on these fish is very low, so the stocks of fish keep getting better and bigger.

If you continue a short distance to the west or south-west, you will find yourself in the open ocean, where there are many more peaks, channels and plateaus. The population of big Cod, Coalfish and Halibut are plentiful in this area. It’s not just the great fishing in this area that has caught our attention, its the accommodation on offer. It is of a very high standard for Norway, and we have made sure that the cabins are complete with lots of modern amenities to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as it could be.

What to catch in Norway

You will be fishing the North sea, and these waters are rich with life and nutrients, which makes for some incredible fishing at certain times of the year. In the cooler months, such as April and May, the Cod fishing around Vesteralen Norway fishing is excellent, and with the Skrei Cod coming close enough to reach with a short drive from this destination, it won’t be long before we see some outstanding results. As the waters warm up, the fishing changes and Halibut becomes the main fish to target. You can catch large Halibut in the fjords or the open sea; the choice will be yours.

Some of the best Halibut grounds are around 30 minutes to a 1-hour boat drive away. However, there are always colossal Halibut caught 5 minutes from the cabins. The further away spots tend to be known holding areas for big Ling, and much other fish are still worth a long journey.

The onsite guides at Vesteralen Norway fishing have found a fishing mark known locally as ‘Jurassic Park’ aptly named due to the sheer size of the fish available to catch. It’s not uncommon to see Cod over 50lb in the summer months. It’s not just the Cod that grow large; its the other species that are being caught each week, with Huge Ling, Coalfish and of course Halibut. This area is around a 1.5hr boat ride away from the lodge, but it is well worth a couple of days fishing in this area.

Best hire boats in Norway

With our partners Nordic Sea Angling, we have managed to secure the same high standard boats as we run at many of our other camps. The boats that you will be using are known for excellent handling and safety at sea. They are very sturdy even in rough conditions and can cope with heavy seas. Why not head over to our Youtube channel to see what Vesteralen is like

The boats are 23.5ft Arronnet aluminium boats and come fitted with 150hp Suzuki 4 Stroke engines, one of the most fuel-efficient engines money can buy. The boats’ electronics are also a high standard, with prominent displays on the fish finders and chart plotters. These boats are kept to a very high standard and regularly maintained. We also have a spare boat just in case of unforeseen breakdowns. There is also a guided boat at Vesteralen Norway fishing, and if booked well in advance, you can have a full week’s guided fishing; alternatively, if you wish to be more flexible with your fishing, you can simply follow the guides around for the first couple of days.

Subject to availability, it is also possible to book the guide for just one day. They will then come on your boat for the day and show you around and show you some of their fishing techniques, which is a massive help.

Norway Fishing Guides

You will have two guides onsite at Vesteralen Norway fishing camp, with one being at the camp during the day whilst the other is out guiding on the boats. These guides will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and offer advice on any of the fishing you may need. If you have been looking for your next sea fishing adventure, then Vesterålen is the place for you as once you have fished here and stayed in the luxury cabins, we looked after our onsite guides and caught that dream fish, you will not want to go anywhere else.

Best season In Vesteralen

As with many other parts of Norway, the seasons are pretty much similar. March & April will see the Skrei Cod’s arrival, then once you start to move from Spring to summer, the Halibut and Coalfish will become more active and more comfortable to find. A perfect time to fish Vesteralen is June, as this is when all the species will be available, especially the very large Ling that Vesteralen Norway fishing is famous for. If you still need more help deciding, we have written some useful blogs such as the ultimate guide to sea fishing.

The great advantage of Vesterålen is that there are always two full-time guides on hand to help the most or less experienced anglers. They will even jump on your boat for a day, guiding you and showing you all the hot spots. They are always on hand to help out with any questions about fishing marks and are still keen to help out as much as possible to ensure you have a great experience.

There is no skill level required for fishing as the guides will help you with everything. A little boat handling knowledge would be an advantage but not necessary as the guides will help with instructions. The boats located a minute walk away from the cabins down a reasonably steep bridge on to the dock. The rest of the holiday is certainly not physically demanding.

Accommodation

Vesteralen Norway fishing resort is one of our finest locations in northern Norway, with the brand new cabins located right on the edge of a fish-filled fjord; one does not have to go far to find some fantastic fishing spots. The scenery just outside the cabins is breath-taking from the rear tree-lined mountains will surround you, and at the front of the properties, you will benefit from stunning views across the fjord to the open ocean.

Vesteralen Lodge Information

The local supermarket is a short 7-8km drive from the cabins and fully stocked with the same as a supermarket at home. We provide every angler with the free use of the onsite car to make supermarket trips as easy as possible.

We also have a very well stocked tackle shop supplying everything you will need for your weeks fishing, from braid to hooks. They have everything you will need at UK prices, you can simply turn up here with no tackle and purchase everything you will need for the week plus it will not cost you any extra than buying it all from the UK and at least you will only buy items that are working.

Around the resort, you will get free access to Wi-Fi which is a great way to post your pictures so friends and family can experience your journey. There is also a large container where you will replenish your boat fuel from, simply ask the guides each day for however much fuel your boat needs, and they will issue you with 25ltr containers to carry down to your boat. There is a little trolley supplied to help you carry the fuel to the boats. The boat fuel that you use will need to pay for at the end of your stay. There is also a large walk-in freezer room with plenty of storage space if you take fish home with you; you can also purchase polystyrene fish boxes to carry your fish home.

I have just returned from a week in Vesteralen. What a great getaway. The accomodation was excellent. Very roomy, spotless and with all mod cons. The boats were brilliant, very sea worthy, and comfortable fishing. The fishing was slow for the first couple of days then we had a guided trip to a mark Marcus the resort guide new about that could be reached in good weather. The weather god was kind to us and after a two hour trip we settled into what was undoubtedly the best days fishing any of us had ever had. For over six hours we had fish after fish, large Cod, large Coal-fish, large Ling, you never new what was going to come up next. Wow what a day. A Big thank you must be said to Marcus for providing us with not only maps and local knowledge, but nothing was a problem for him. If we needed any advice about anything he was there. A Great Guy. The views of the Fjords were spectacular The icing on the cake was watching the Sea Eagles diving down for fish as we headed back to our cabin each evening.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Richard, thanks for your great feedback. It is a real help to future travellers.

So glad you guys had a great trip and liked Vesteralen. I am off there next June so hopefully we have the same great fishing you guys had. Where next for you guys?

Matthew

Great location with fantastic accommodation and 'away from it all' setting.
Good fishing grounds with some limitations in adverse weather - Huge potential in Calmer conditions for Halibut, Cod and Coalfish.

The guide Marcus is fantastic. Limited by being a one man operation on site.
Recommend Blackout blinds to improve lodges during 24 hour daylight.
Self catering welcome packs. Recommend a 'basket' of Bread, Eggs, Milk, Cheese etc.
Location/fishing grounds/guides. Please send in advance to allow initial planning for the trip. (Nordic do this)
As usual, Minor points as the overall package is very good.

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hi Matt, thanks for your feedback all the tips are very helpful for future travellers.

Sounds like you guys had a great time and caught plenty of big fish.

We do have lots of maps with fishing marks for people who require them. Perhaps we will start to send them out with the paper work. I shall suggest a welcome pack as it is sometimes very helpful especially if your flight arrives late in the day and the shops are closed so that would be a great idea

Our group enjoyed a very memorable trip with excellent accommodation and a great guide called Marcus who could not have been more helpful and actually joined us for a couple of evening meals.

He gave us great information and tips on where to fish.

Your own service has also been outstanding and we all agree that we will be returning to Norway with Sportquest at some point in the future.

David

Although the fishing was very good the travelling to the fishing grounds I thought was to long 4.5 hours one day when the sea was rough. Seeing killer whales to me was the highlight. Sometimes I just want to go fishing on a holiday at a respectable hour and not get up early in the morning to catch big fish and long distances

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello David, Thank you for your feedback. Yes it was a tough weeks weather and those long distances would of been half the time if the sea was flat calm. But when we got out there the fishing was worth it with two Cod pushing 50lb and those ling made the journey worth it. Those Killer whales we saw were amazing and to have them so close to the boat was even more exciting.

Another fantastic trip with Sportquest. Highlights definitely were:

The location and scenery
seeing orcas in their natural environment
the company - great set of anglers
oh...and a new Halibut PB!

Only improvement suggestion would be to install wardrobes / cupboards in the lodge bedrooms - we were literally living out of a suitcase

Response from Sportquest Holidays

Hello Nick, it was great to see you again and really pleased you managed your Halibut PB. It was an awesome fish. What about the statue, you forget to mention the statue!!

Anyway, hopefully will see you again soon

As a result, the coastal waters close to the camp are generally calm, whatever the weather and very few fishing days get lost throughout the season. It's famed for its Skrei Cod fishing, as well as its fantastic Halibut and Plaice fishing.
