We have just received this season summary from Explore the Arctic, in Lauklines, North Norway, with regards to their fishing season. They are now looking forward to the winter season with whale watching, winter fjord cruises and Northern Lights trips.
We have now completed another successful fishing season. This was the first season with our new specially built charter boat and it has proven to be the perfect boat for charter boat angling.
In the start of the season we experienced good fishing for big cod. Due to low water temperatures this fishing lasted until the end of May. The first couple of weeks of the season we also caught some big ling up to approx. 20kg. The amount of big ling seems to increase every year in our area.
The fishing for wolffish started in May and reached its peak in June and July. The biggest one we caught this season was approx. 9kg.
The big coalfish also arrived during May. For a couple of weeks in the end June and start of July we experienced fantastic top water fishing for big coalfish. We even caught them on poppers and floating stickbaits. The biggest coalfish this season was approx. 16kg.
The fishing for haddock was a bit slow this season, even if we caught some nice one in the end of the season.
The fishing for halibut was also a bit slow this season, even if it picked up in the end of the season. The biggest halibuts were caught in September, with fish up to 198cm. As always we had peaks in the halibut fishing a few days before full moon and new moon.
This year the big shoals of mackerel arrived in the start of July and the biggest one we caught was 1,5kg.
The fishing for flatfish in the end of the season resulted in some nice plaice and dab. Plaice up to 3,2kg and dab up to 1kg were caught.
The end of the season has also offered good fishing for whiting and redfish at the deep drop-offs.
As always we had many spectacular nature and wildlife experiences during the fishing trips, such as sea eagles, orcas, mink whales, dolphins and porpoises.
The booking for the next season has already begun and the first trips will take part in the start of May.
