morning me Peter and Lynda went to Gamvik, located at north east part of
Nordkynd where Vidar waited with our big boat Viking Explorer. Today we were
going to fish salmon in Risfjord river. We went to Koifjord which is located
just southeast of Risfjord where we anchored up Viking Explorer and to walk
over to the top of Risfjordriver and fish our way downstream. At the second
pool we fished Peter got a strike and after a heavy fight with his light tackle
Vidar could net the salmon witch got weight to 3,2 kilos. When we had fished
down to the last pool I decided to try my luck with my flyrod. After a couple
of minutes I hooked a salmon and after I while Peter brought it in the net,
this salmon was weight to 3 kilo. We decided to go back up to the pool where
Peter caught his to fish the remaining minutes that was left on our fishing licenses.
This time Vidar tried his luck with his flyrod and quite soon he had a fish on.
First we thought it was a arctic char which is common in this river but when it
came closer I turned out to be a beautiful brown trout about 0,8 kilos. Now it
was time to head back to Adventure Camp Mehamn and rest for tomorrows fishing.
two days Vidar and John have guided Peter and Lynda on freshwater fishing after
arctic char and brown trout. We trailed 4 of our new quad bikes with to a small
road that’s going long in to the mountains. We had quite tuff weather yesterday,
it was times when it not only was windy but also snowed. We didn’t think that
much about the bad weather when it was so fun to ride the quad bikes and the
fishing turn out to be really good. In the end of the day we had caught 16 trouts
in two different lakes. Today the weather was better and so was the fishing for
arctic char, Peter did as he always does and hooks a char at his second cast.
During the next 4 hours of fishing peter caught another 5 arctic chars and John
one. Then it was time to head back to Adventure Camp Mehamn, but no sad faces
to leave the good fishing when we had 30 minutes of quad bike riding ahead of us!
These last days
John and Vidar has guided Peter on some more adventures.
ago after having great halibut fishing the day before John decided to explore a
new area that he had found on the sea chart. After trying some drifts on
different places in this new area without a single bite Peter suddenly hooked a
halibut and Peter really had to hold on cause the halibut got totally wild and
pulled out line several times, finally they succeeded to get it in the boat and
measured it to 137cm (35kilo), only three centimeters shorter than the big one
he caught the day before! The next two drift John lost three halibuts after
short fights and on the forth Peter hooked a second one that was measured to
132cm (31kilo). both halibuts was carefully released again to grow even bigger
After a long fight this beauty was secured, 137cm!
Yesterday John and Vidar brought Peter and Lynda on a day’s guiding for salmon in Laggo river with our new quad bikes. When they came to the river Peter hooked a big salmon on his first cast but lost it after a couple of minutes. A little bit later he hooked another one and this time it stayed on, we later weight it to little bit above 4 kilos! The quadbike driving was great and we really put them to the test more then once.
on our way from Laggo marina
and upp to the river and tougher terrain
Peter with the catch of the day, 4 kilo silver!
The nature is so beautiful along laggo river!
Today John brought Peter to another smaller salmon river to try to catch salmon with fly. Also today Peter hooked a salmon almost directly and after 4 great jumps and pulling out a lot of line John secured it with a net. This salmon was weight to 2,4kilos. Later Peter caught two small salmons and they stopped several times along downstream to try casting on salmon that John spotted while Peter was fishing on them but without success. Back at the car they decide to go and look at the bridge at the estuary to see if we could spot any salmon, well there they counted to about 20 salmon that had gathered to rise in the river.
Peter with his 2,4 kilo salmon, caught with flyrod.
Today John and
Peter where out one halibut fishing and already a minute in on the first drift
john first lost a halibut then ten minutes later hooked on that was measured to
118cm (20 kilo according to the halibut list). On the next drift John had a
small halibut following his jig all the way up to the boat and then stroked,
after five seconds on the hook it went loose and surprisingly enough it stayed
and played with the jig. John gave the rod to Peter and after the halibut had
played with the jig it decided to strike and this time I was stuck. On a couple
of drifts later peter lost two halibuts and then succeeded to bring a 90cm
(8,7kilo) in to the boat. On the next drift Peter got a really heavy bite on
his Predator Tail. After a hard fight we brought the great halibut into the
boat and measured it to 140 cm (37,5 kilo). All halibuts where released back to
Later this week we will release a short video of this days
guide John went out with Peter and Lynda a couple that has visit Adventure Camp
Mehamn several times before to fish for Sea Char. The fishing started rather
slow on the afternoon but when the wind settled and the sun came out the
schools of Sea char where really easy to spot. During the next couple of hours
they caught 4 good sized chars and one really nice trout. They took two of the
chars for dinner and released the rest.
our guide John was out with two German groups, team Deubel and team Comoran to guide
for halibut. The day started rater slow but after a while the halibuts started
to strike. Team Comoran caught a really good sized halibut that was measured to
145cm (42kilo according to the halibut length/weight list) and then released.
Almost at the same time team Deubel caught a 127cm (26kilo) halibut, also this
one were released. In the end of the next drift John got a really good strike
on his Mieko Predator Tail. After a brutal fight we brought the halibut into
the boat and measure it to 151cm (48kilo), after a few pictures this beauty was
released. Team Comoran also caught a 108cm halibut (14 kilo) two drifts later.
Beside this four halibuts we also caught two smaller ones and lost a couple of
This sunday we didn’t catch 8 halibuts and Dans beautiful 132cm weren’t the
biggest. On the last drift a 155cm halibut took my Mieko Predator Tail and
after a brutal fight and some pictures it was released to grow even bigger!
and my coworker Dan had the day of so we decided to go and fish halibut on same
place as we caught 37 halibuts last year. Even though it was early in the
season we caught eight halibuts and the biggest halibut was 31 kilos.
