Double hook again

Yesterdays fishing was a bit slower as there is not so much tidal move in the water. We caught 3 Cod and 3 Coalfish with 10.5 , 7 and 4kg. The 2 biggest came in a double hook, this time with me getting the bigger and trolling was the method again.

Same procedure as last time

Yesterday we went back to the spot where we fished last time doing some trolling again. The fish were still around and behaved well. We caught 6 Cod, 1 Pollack and 5 nice Coalfish. The last 2 came in a double hook with Gretel getting the biggest with 7kg, the others were between 4.5 and 6.5kg.

Trolling was the deal

After one day with bad result and a day off due to bad weather we decided to do some trolling with big Rapala-Wobbler around high tide in the afternoon. After 2 hours searching we found the fish close do a small skär. In 2 hours we caught 3 big Coalfish with 2x 9 and 6.5 kg as well as 9 Cod and 1 Pollack. I was doing the fishing while Gretel was driving the boat, real Teamwork.

Living like the tide!

Fishing in Norway means living like the tide. Usually we fish with incoming water during the night.
Last evening we went out at 9.00 PM and came back at 2.00 AM going to bed at 4.00 AM.
The fish started really biting after midnight, we caught 4 Cod , 1 Pollack and 1 Haddock (Schellfisch) and Gretel did it again with a Cod of 10 kg. Originally she had a double on but 1 got of in midway.

Gretels turn

Yesterday evening it was Gretels turn to catch the big fish. We went back to our favourite spot but I could get only 1 coalfish of 3 kg, so it was Gretel who caught 2 big cod from 11 and 5 kg although the wind was not in our favour.

Hitra, Norway

On Friday last week we started our trip to Hitra, Norway. We left in pouring rain and found a lot of roads bloked in Norway due to the same reason, but nevertheless we made it to Sandstad without a lot of delay. The fist days of fishing were just average with some Codfish and others. We tried several times the spot of last years Coalfish success and today finally we met them. In just one hour we caught 3 nice fish weighing 12, 8 and 3 kg as well as some medium sized Cod. So we hope that the good fishing will continue as the weather prediction for the next days looks good.
