WONDERFUL WEATHER IN NORTH NORWAY


We had very nice weather the last week, and last weekend I had a nice trip together with good friends hunting for the light and the big halibuts offshore Tromsø. Unfortunately the halibuts were relaxing this evening, but thats what makes the successful trips so unforgettable !!

HENRIK - STILL CRAZY AFTER ALL BIG HALIBUTS

After his record Halibut catch Henrik has faced a lot of interest from journalists from different media.
This article was written in Nordlys - the local newspaper in North Norway.

Just follow this link to see the article: http://www.nordlys.no/nyheter/article5638172.ece

I talked with Henrik this afternoon on his mobilphone  - he was still out fishing ( had to make only one more drift he said) and minutes ago he had lost a big - more than one meter - halibut. He also had another visitor - a seal - which  took his Panther Martin rubberfish - but fortunately he lost it after a hell of a outrun.

Friday the MV "BigFisher " goes offshore with Kayaks, anglerfriends and hopefully a lot of good "haill" before departure - haill is something you need to get the biggest Halibuts !!!
Stay tuned !!

HENRIK GOES CRAZY AGAIN !!

Yesterday Henrik had a new, hard fight in Kvalsund - a 175 cm Halibut , 70,5 kilo without blood.

Could this be a new Halibut World record from Kayak ????

This weekend I have been working "dugnad"  at Finnkroken Bygdemuseum to help them to make a new boathouse. During the weekend I had many hot and emotional  messages from Henrik - "The sun is shining out of my ass :-)) 140 cm", "I need a shoulder to lean on and cry at :-((  " - 175 cm safe at the beach :-))  and in the nice weather I am very sorry that I couldn't join Henrik hunting for the big Halibuts, but there is still early in the season!!!

Kayak Halibut fishing around Kvaløyvågen - Tromsø

My anglerfriend Henrik goes crazy by Fishing big Halibuts from Kayak around Kvaløyvågen.
In 3 days he has landed 3 nice Halibuts - 90 cm, 140 cm and today 170 cm - all catches in shallow water.

The 170 cm was a hard fight - Harpuned and went down several times. With assistance from a local seagull HENRIK won the fight.

Nice catfish in Kvalsund

Together with my friends Henrik and Ringo I had a nice fishing trip in Kvalsund outside Tromsø today. The weather was nice after two days with gale conditions, and it's good to see that there is a lot of nice cod in the area. Today we had no halibuts, but a week ago I had a fight with two of them.
