The Lyngen Fjord provides scenic and sheltered fishing close to excellent and productive marks. Quality cod, halibut, coalfish and haddock on pirks and shads using modern well equipped self use boats. The centre is located about 2 hours from Tromso Airport and has excellent accommodation and facilities. Prime time is May to September but April and October will produce with stable weather.
Ray and friends have been fishing out of Skjervoy for 10 years. After just returning from an early July trip they had great things to report…
“This year we had new Marlin boats with 150hp outboards. Great boats but a bit juicy if you use too much power. 23 knots is a good speed for optimum economy. The boats push better through chop and don’t slam. The weather was harsh at times but we had 13 halibut to 52lb and many cod with the best one weighing in at 60 pounds! This clearly made our trip.”
Just returned from a great 3 day trip to Skjervoy to meet the new manager Roger and his assistant Frank. Dave Lewis put the new Jeanneau boat through its paces and it passed with flying colours. With a 115 hp 4 stroke Yamaha engine these excellent boats will offer high levels of safety, reliability and manoeuvrability.
They will be the best fishing platforms in Northern Norway and the full compliment of 10 boats will arrive June 1st. A limited number will be available from March onwards.
The weather was unseasonably good, 2 perfect and 1 good day out of 3.! Temperatures were slightly higher than average and we caught Cod to twenty pounds plus coalies and mackeral. Good off season fishing using both shads and pirks in 30 to 40 metres.

We have just received this season summary from Explore the Arctic, with regards to their fishing trips 2017.
We have now completed another successful fishing season. This was the first season with our new specially built charter boat and it has proven to be the perfect boat for charter boat angling.
In the start of the season we experienced good fishing for big cod. Due to low water temperatures this fishing lasted until the end of May. The first couple of weeks of the season we also caught some big ling up to approx. 20kg. The amount of big ling seems to increase every year in our area.
The fishing for wolffish started in May and reached its peak in June and July. The biggest one we caught this season was approx. 9kg.
The big coalfish also arrived during May. For a couple of weeks in the end June and start of July we experienced fantastic top water fishing for big coalfish. We even caught them on poppers and floating stickbaits. The biggest coalfish this season was approx. 16kg.
The fishing for haddock was a bit slow this season, even if we caught some nice one in the end of the season.
The fishing for halibut was also a bit slow this season, even if it picked up in the end of the season. The biggest halibuts were caught in September, with fish up to 198cm. As always we had peaks in the halibut fishing a few days before full moon and new moon.
This year the big shoals of mackerel arrived in the start of July and the biggest one we caught was 1,5kg.
The fishing for flatfish in the end of the season resulted in some nice plaice and dab. Plaice up to 3,2kg and dab up to 1kg were caught.
The end of the season has also offered good fishing for whiting and redfish at the deep drop-offs.
As always we had many spectacular nature and wildlife experiences during the fishing trips, such as sea eagles, orcas, mink whales, dolphins and porpoises.
The booking for the next season has already begun and the first trips will take part in the start of May.
We are now looking forward to the winter season with whale watching, winter fjord cruises and Northern Lights trips.

Fantastic fishing for quality fish and variety of species in one of the best sea fishing areas in the north of Norway.
Paul O’Connor and his group enjoyed a great weeks fishing in August at Torsvag. They had many Person Bests with cod to 38lb, plus a wide variety of other species including halibut, plaice, dabs, coalfish, and mackeral.
The camp, accommodation, boats, staff and arrangements “were faultless” and they will be returning same time in 2018.
Fantastic fishing during a mixed weather week but they could fish every day. Vast numbers of cod with lots 20 to 30 pound plus. One mark had 30 meters of water and 20 meters of cod !!!
Everyone landed halibut too with Gordon’s biggest weighing 70 pounds.
Four anglers enjoyed excellent fishing at Torsvag, with top local skipper Bjorne. Quality cod and halibut were caught in stunning scenic surroundings where there was almost 24 hours daylight.
