Arctic april adventures !!

In April and March 2016 it has been a variety of differnt weather conditions outside the North Norwegian coast. The coast and waters outside has been full of big codfish, but heavy winds has made it a challenge to go fishing. Fortunately we had some very nice days too, and together with good friends we have made some very nice trips outside and made great catches- codfish and halibuts.

The new Lowrance Elite 7 TI echosounder - launched at the market in january 16 - worked very well with the new Totalscan transducer.On the Picture you see  big cod - called skrei - hunting for lodde - from 60 meter Down to 120 meter . The red dots show very dense concentrations of big fishes.

Nice day for fishing on the " BigFisher II " outside the coast


The Bird Island - Sørfugløya - is looking great. We could see 10 sea eagles circling above the island

Going home after a wonderful fishing day outside



The big codfish is a perfect raw material for making Boknafisk and tørrfisk ( stockfish)
