NIGHT FISHING IN MIDNIGHT SUN

8 fishing vessels leaving the harbour at 1 AM for 5 hours midnight sun fishing competition

Tromsø International Deep Sea Angling Competition took place in july 2012 outside Sommarøy, Tromsø.
The weather was perfect, and I am pleased to show you som of my pictures from the competition. Onboard the M/V "BigFisher" we were three anglers - Kurt Andreassen, Tromsø Deep Sea Angling Club, Kjell Torbjørnsen, Stavanger HK and Morten Willumsen, Tromsø Deep Sea Angling Club and skipper.
After 5 hours of fishing at night in midnight sun and flat water  from 2 AM till 7 AM we had filled all boxes and the deck space with big sei ( pollock). More than 1200 kg of sei - 22 full boxes - was delivered to the fish plant at Sommarøy. All the income from the fish is given to Tromsø Deep sea Angling Club - an important contribution to the administration of the club.
