You are very welcome to experience our adventurous fishing trips with an experienced fishing guide in the pristine and rich waters outside Kvaløya, west of Tromsø. The area is a world class area for fishing and it has been well known for sea fishing for centuries. In other words, get ready for a real adventure! Our knowledge and experience is your guarantee for a successful fishing experience.
Our area is well-known for the halibut fishing. Every year halibuts over 100 kiloes are caught in our area. The peaks and structures hold big cod and coalfish all year around. There are sandy plateaus which offer fantastic plaice and dab fishing. The area also offers good fishing for wolffish, haddock, tusk, ling, redfish and mackerel.
Before we start the trips, we discuss which species you would like to target. Some groups only like to chase the “record fish”, while others may target their fishing to catch as many species as possible. Whatever your goals are, we will do everything to meet your wishes.
Sea fishing in Northern Norway is demanding and the equipment has to be top class. All the equipment is included and we only use high end gear, mainly from Shimano.
During the fishing trip we will also teach you how to handle the catch correctly to improve the quality. We will prepare the catch for you if you want to bring it with you. We follow minimum and maximum sizes and when it comes to vulnerable spieces, we practise catch and release, as an example, release big halibuts.
We often experience close encounters with the local wildlife, which can include whales, seals, otters, sea eagles, puffins and many other arctic bird species.
