Lauklines Summer Season Summary 2017

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.

New Specially Built Charter Boat

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.

Big Cod

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.

More late summer action in Torsvag

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.

Gordon Batty and group, Torsvag September

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.

Great accommodation, faultless staff and well maintained Arvor boats. Needless to say they will return for sure in 2018.

Destination Spain!

Dave Lewis recently went to Spain, his base for the trip, Riumar, a small holiday town located at the mouth of the River Ebro.

After a couple of days of bad weather, he soon had chance to experience what this Riumar had to offer.

His first tuna of the trip estimated to weigh around 45kg,100lb, about average for the area we were fishing. After a quick photo session the fish was released, as all tuna are.

It was immediately apparent that the second fish Dave hooked was considerably bigger than the first. Clearly this was a new personal best bluefin tuna for Dave. She measured 2.01m, which computes to a fish of around 140kg, 308lb; he was delighted!

To read all about Dave’s adventure see his blog https://davelewisfishing.com/

Trips to Ruimar to fish with Ron Niewwboer at Roned Sportfishing can be organised through Anglers World Holidays. In addition to those species mentioned, dorado are abundant during September and October, and huge wells catfish weighing over 100lb are caught in the River Ebro not far upriver from Riumar.

Lough Derg Hybrids

Baz Smith checked out the fishing on Derg based at Tully’s Cottages right on the shoreline.
Boat access to good fishing platforms essential. With changeable weather fishing was hard but Baz had some quality hybrids fishing the feeder at 45 yards. Early and late sessions produced the fish. 

Fishing Report for Gavito, Madeira

Last week was better than expected with a Big Eye Tune circa 200 lbs being landed and released on Thursday and a White Marlin being caught and released on Friday. The Tuna was caught on a light 50 lbs class rod and reel combo with only 60 lbs mono line and 200 lbs braid backing. The lure was a moldcraft wide range blue/white with a 10/0 hook. The fish started off by breaching and then deciding to race the boat and it was all we could manage to keep line on the reel. Judicious use of the boat was required to start getting the fish under control. The angler was a rank novice (first time fishing) and thankfully he acted promptly to instruction and did very well indeed. No photo of this fish as the camera was not working. TYPICAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The White Marlin took a Williamson lure of 6” in pink and was boated within 10 minutes. As is normal a lot of show with tail walking etc… but not much stamina.

However, in addition to our catches 3 Blue Marlin in excess of 600 lbs have been boated and successfully released by other boats in our Marina. So clearly things are at last starting to hot up.

Conditions were a little choppy and therefore more challenging to fish. Since Friday the conditions have calmed right down and today is flat calm.

We still have space in July and August which are traditionally the best months for big Blues. So, reserve your space now and avoid disappointment.
