Maintenance on M/V "BigFisher"



Had to pull her out of water friday 25.th for cleaning and maintenance on one of the Twin Disc gears. On one of my last trips I hit something drifting under the surface -probably a heavy piece of wood - and this caused a problem with the gear.

Hopefully she will be back in water and ready for new expeditions in two weeks - depends on the spareparts I need.

STORTORSK UTENFOR VANNØYA




Had a nice trip with M/V "BIGFISHER" today outside Vannøy together with my friend Burkhard. A lot of nice weather and bad weather, sunshine, snow, rain, flat water and gail from north during the same day. I still feel a little dizzy and the floor at home is still moving. The point around Fakken can be VERY dangerous for small vessels when wind and current goes in different direction.
Had very nice fishing with BIG cods, , kveite, steinbit and sei.

The biggest cods we released and hopefully it will become mother to many new cod-babies.

The eccosounder picture show that the area was full of small fishes - tobis - and the big cods and also kveite are having a great party. Burkhard and I were lucky to join the party !!
