After 10 days

The first week and some days are over on our trip to Norway. We had some good days and some bad. Highlights of the last week were some further nice Sei up to 8.5 kg, during trolling with big wobbler we had even a double hook of 7 kg fish, which we released. We got also some nice cod, the biggest 2 at 7.3 and 6.8 kg. Now the Mackerels are coming in and we are looking to get some of them as well.

Norway, Sandstad on Hitra

We arrived last Friday in Sandstad on Hitra in Norway. It was raining continuously for the first 2 days, so that we could launch our boat only on Sunday afternoon. The first fishing trip in bad weather gave some medium sized cod and coal fish. Yesterday evening was much better with no wind and a gentle current. So we fished 2,5 hours and caught 4 coal fish and 1 cod, the biggest 2 were 11.5 and 10.5 kg, which means that the first target, getting a 10+ coal fish or "Sei" as they are called here, has been achieved.
