WE HAVE PLENTY OF FISH
IN THE SEA
In March- April the artic cod comes to the fjords to spawn, and the sea practically boils. The artic climate offers winter storm so tough that you can see no longer then the tip of your nose, as well as calm seas and clear skies. Although there may be a few days in port due to bad wather, you have a great change to catch the coveted trophy fish. This season is for the toughest of them all!
May, June and July offer the most stable fishing weather and lovely midnight sun. This means long, bright days and infinit time for fishing. The dream of the big cod draws most deep sea anglers here in the summer. In addition to chasing the big cod, summer can offer an intense combat with the big coalfish, meeting the wolffish face to face, or for the toughest; the hunt for the large halibut.
