GREAT HALIBUTFISHING WITH FRIENDS THIS AUTUMN

Hello friends !
This autumn the weather has been fairly good up here in arctic Norway. In Tromsø just now it is mild temperatures around 5 degrees celcius and no snow on the ground. Hopefully it will get a little colder so we can have some snow - since the sun these days will disappear under the horizon up here, it will be very dark without snow.
Most of my trips this season after halibuts have been very succesful, and I also had some nice Arctic Safari trips fishing for cod with nice people.
Unfortunately the whales have moved more to the north after the herring, but just now its a great feast going on with orcas and humpbacks just outside Skjervøy.  The trip from Tromsø to Skjervøy takes close to 5 hours  with the M/V Bigfisher II and I am ready to go there on two- day trips if some of you are keen to watch this great adventure with the big whales. Just let me know - my mail is morten@arcticsafari.no.
Here are some pictures from some of the halibut trips this season.

ARCTIC COD - SKREI at Malangsgrunnen

Together with keen anglers from Tromsø Havfiskeklubb I went to Malangsgrunnen outside Tromsø fishing for big Arctic cod - named  SKREI - in Norwegian.
We had a nice day of fishing, and all together we landed more than 500 kg skrei during the day.
The biggest skrei this day was 31,5 kg , but we had many big fishes between 20 and 30 kg.
The conditions were great - nice weather and no big waves.

GREAT HALIBUT FEAST IN NOVEMBER WITH ARCTIC SAFARI ON THE BIGFISHER II



November in North Norway - short days and special light conditions


The Angler - Gunter Storr from Angler fuer Angler in Germany -   ready for action !




Together with my friend Gunter we  had a wonderful trip to the heart of Halibut Kingdom now
in November 2017.
After a short phone call between Germany and Norway we decided to make a last halibut-trip this year together - it was good prospects - full moon and nice weather forecast.


The conditions turned out to be good - at this time of the year it is fast changing conditions between nice weather and bad weather - the polar low pressures coming in from the Barentz sea can turn the weather upside down in a few hours. But we were lucky and had a great halibut trip.

The last day of 3 days with hot fishing we had 9 halis and a lot of action in addition-  very good days of fishing.
