CATCH AND RELEASE


I have been questioned by a reader of my blog about my attitude to C&R.

Many serious  tourist anglers practice C&R , and I appreciate that they are doing this when fishing in the Halibut Kingdom outside Tromsø.
Peronally I practice C&R from time to time, but not always.
Some bad weather

As a norwegian citizen I am allowed to bring with me back home more than 15 kg fishfillet  for eating and I am also authorized to deliver fish to the local fish factory.

Among the local fishermen up here C&R has not been usual. Since I was a small boy I have been fishing and taken care of the catches for food. When I could bring back home a lot of nice fishes, my mother was very happy and shared the fish with family and friends.
Some nice weather too

Anyway- Many of the big fishes we catch onboard the "BigFisher" are measured and set back into the water.
After having landed one of the big halibuts, it is a very good feeling to see the predator swim back and fulfil it's mission making many halibut-babies.
Some nice fishes

But from time to time after hard drills some big fishes are severely hurted and has to be taken care of.

I appreciate very much that also foreign anglers feel responsibility to contribute to take care of the norwegian  fish resources .
The city Tromsø - capitol in the Halibut Kingdom

This year has been a very good season for halibut fishing - hopefully next year will be even better.

Look forward to see all of you up here - it's a paradise for nice fishes !!!


 I wish all friends and bloggers a Merry Christmas and a good New Year !!
