SHARK FISHING IN NORWAY
PUSH THIS LINK - SCROLL DOWN TO THE VIDEO
Just outside Tromsø - in Halibut Kingdom - giant sharks - in norwegian named Håkjerring - are possible to hunt for in deep water. These giants can be up to 7 meter and several hundreds of kilo.
Some years ago the local fishermen used to catch these sharks only for the valuable liver. During the last 30 years this fishing has been forgotten , but I believe this nowadays is a very interesting challenge for keen anglers. I have studied old papers and found out where to catch these monsters.
The giant sharks normally stay on deep water - 300 meter and deeper - and a piece of flesh is a good bait. Outside Spitzbergen you can find them on more shallow waters , and it is told that fishermen have found even Polarbear-kids in their stomach.
This year we will try to catch some of these monsters from the MV BigFisher - reports will follow!!!
