Typical fish species we fish for and how we fish for them:
Pollack (Pollachius pollachius) and Coalfish (Pollachius virens): Vertical jigging with softbaits, deep water fly fishing, casting with softbaits and wobblers along dropoffs. 0-40m deep.
Cod (Gadus morhua): Vertical jigging with softbaits, and casting with softbaits and wobblers along steep dropoffs. 0-80m deep.
Ballan (Labrus bergylta) and Cuckoo Wrasse (Labrus mixtus): Vertical jigging with softbaits or bait fishing. 5-30m deep.
Ling (Molva molva) and Cusk (Brosme brosme): Half a mackerel bait fished tight on the bottom 50-150m deep.
Whiting (Merlangius merlangus): Vertical jigging with softbaits or bait fishing. 10-30m deep.
Plaice (Pleuronectes platessa), Flounder (Platichthys flesus) and other flatfish: Baitfishing over sandy bottoms. 1-10m deep.
We use actively both our knowledge gathered over many years of fishing and guiding but also our broad spectrum of onboard marine electronics (Garmin fish finders and Panoptix). We will show you on the screen the fish as we find them and you can even watch them go for your bait!
Of course we will provide you with all that you will need to experience a truly great day. We will thoroughly go through the equipment we use to catch our sea fish, the techniques and what features one should look for to find them. Couple all of this with the scenic Norwegian archipelago, a meal freshly made with your catch, then if that isn’t a perfect day I don’t know what is!
We offer both half (4 hrs) and full day (8 hrs) fishing adventures. Under is an example of the full day fishing experience which we naturally tailor to each customer and their specific goals.
Depending on whether the goal is to fish from the shore or boat we tailor the different aspects to your request. Then included in the package is the use of the boat with a qualified and insured captain (if applicable), fishing equipment, foods and drinks, and pictures taken.
Sea Fishing Experience Example
Full Day (8hrs)
We meet at our starting point with warm greetings, discuss the days goals, the plan for the day and a quick safety talk.
On with lifevests (PFDs) and we board the boat. We drive from the dock and the adventure begins!
We reach our first fishing spot and the hunt for lunch starts.
We stop at an island in the Norwegian archipelago for freshly made warm drinks and a snack.
We find an island and it's time for a freshly made warm lunch with your catch of the day.
Satisfied and rested we fish the remainder of our time together.
Our time together has come unfortunately to an end and we arrive back at the dock.
Payment for the trip happens now and after a quick summary of our day, we say our goodbyes and hope to meet again.
