I have been questioned by a reader of my blog about my attitude to C&R.
Many serious tourist anglers practice C&R , and I appreciate that they are doing this when fishing in the Halibut Kingdom outside Tromsø.
Peronally I practice C&R from time to time, but not always.
|Some bad weather|
As a norwegian citizen I am allowed to bring with me back home more than 15 kg fishfillet for eating and I am also authorized to deliver fish to the local fish factory.
Among the local fishermen up here C&R has not been usual. Since I was a small boy I have been fishing and taken care of the catches for food. When I could bring back home a lot of nice fishes, my mother was very happy and shared the fish with family and friends.
|Some nice weather too|
Anyway- Many of the big fishes we catch onboard the "BigFisher" are measured and set back into the water.
After having landed one of the big halibuts, it is a very good feeling to see the predator swim back and fulfil it's mission making many halibut-babies.
|Some nice fishes|
But from time to time after hard drills some big fishes are severely hurted and has to be taken care of.
I appreciate very much that also foreign anglers feel responsibility to contribute to take care of the norwegian fish resources .

This year has been a very good season for halibut fishing - hopefully next year will be even better.
Look forward to see all of you up here - it's a paradise for nice fishes !!!
I wish all friends and bloggers a Merry Christmas and a good New Year !!
