Great numbers of Humpback whales where hunting for herring in a small fjord outside Kvaløy Close to the city of Tromsø, North Norway.

WONDERFUL ARCTIC NATURE

The big Humpback whales and orcas are back in Tromsø. What a scenery it is !!
Arctic autumn is wonderful with Aurora borealis - the Northern Light, , big halibuts, big whales, orcas, a lot of big cod and sei, and in two weeks the sun is under the horizon up here at 70´ north. Happy to live up here !!

BIG HALIBUT

NICE HALIBUT FROM HALIBUT KINGDOM- 

Picture from a nice fishing trip the first days of Juli 2015 together with angler Gunter Storr in Halibut Kingdom.

We landed four halibuts from 10 to 40 kg , but had several hard attacks that didn´t get hooked up.

Halibut Kingdom outside Tromsø is still one of the very best spots for catching big halibuts.

Fishing around Finnkroken for halibuts has also been a success this year. 3 days ago a 60 kg halibut was landed just beside the Finnkroken fish camp.

The weather has been very cold - night temperatures at around 6-8 degrees celsius, and very clear water. The small sei is coming into the fjords inside, and a lot of  mackerel is just outside the coast now.

You can feel the tension - more reports will follow.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE : I have still trouble with the adware pop-ups that block the blog. To avoid the pop-ups - press  ESC on your testator several times after open my halibut-blog - and then my blog works as normal.
