STORMFISHING

STORMFISH ON M/V " BigFisher"

This weekend we had heavy rain and stormy weather from west and south-west - and the planned clubtrip with the Tromsø Deep Sea Angling Club had to be cancelled due to the bad weather.

I was so keen on halibutfishing, so Saturday morning  together with Henrik and Sunny we decided to make a try in the sheltered waters around Kvaløyvågen in Kvalsund,
We tried in the opening of Kvalsund outside Seiholla without luck, and decided to try Skagøysund. It was some wind - but not too bad for the BigFisher.
Henrik lost a nice Halibut there, and when it was getting dark the wind from west increased and instead of doing  a very inconvenient trip against the waves back to Kvalsund we went north and found shelter for the night in Vargsundet beetween Rebenessøy and Hersøy.
During the night we had heavy rain and gale conditions.
Sunday morning we went out to Grøtøysund to check the conditions. It was heavy wind and rain, but inspite of this we had a rough and wonderful day of fishing out there.
After a nice drill I caught a 120 cm halibut ,  and Henrik hooked a big one that broke his strong line after a short fight. Possibly this was a 100 + fish that we have been hunting for out here.

A lot of water on deck this weekend
To avoid the bad weather from west we went north of Ringvassøy and through Langsund to get back to Tromsø.  In Tromsø the weather was nice and calm with temperature of 9 degrees C- not bad in the middle of October.
A wonderful weekend !!!
