Tromsoe Deep Sea Fishing Club

At Malangsgrunnen outside Tromsø. You can see Halibut Kingdom with Rebbenesøy and Sør Fugløy in the horizon behind.

 
Together with 8 keen anglers from the Tromsø Havfiskeklubb, we made a Fishing trip with Cato on his very nice power catamaran to Malangsgrunnen last weekend on the 11. and 12. of april 2015.
We entered the catamaran saturday evening at 11 o clock, and started fishin' at Malangsgrunnen early sunday morning.
 
Due to bad weather and heavy Winds,  the planned  clubtrip before eastern had to be cancelled. This day the weather was Perfect, and 8 very keen guys started to search for the big cod - in Norwegian called skrei.
 
On my own trip with the " Smallfisher" on the 21. of march - all the area at Malangsgrunnen was filled up with big skrei.
But unfortunately - today most of them had left the area.
 
Anyway - we had a wonderful trip, and was back in Tromsø harbour sunday evening.  The Catch was around 500 kg round skrei with sizes up to almost 1,5 meter length and just below 25 kilo. Personally I was very satisfied with the  trip.
 
For me this was great contrast to my basecamp in Thailand where I returned from after a Nice eastern holiday with my Family and some good friends only two days before. The best of two worlds you can say :-)))))
