Deep Fjord Long line - Local Fisherman for a day - Bucket list.
LET’S CATCH SOM REAL BEASTS FROM THE DEPTH OF THE #SOGNEFJORD - Preparation the longline the evening before hauling. Get challenged, make decisions and master your reactions. Fish floating like footballs. Activate your hunting instincts and experience the feeling of focus and simplification that takes control. You are vital, strong and alive. Work in proper fisherman’s clothes. Note - For those who are particularly interested
CONTENTS: The local STCW instructor and captain Tor takes you on the open boat “Balestrand Fjord Angling”. Experience real traditional and local fishing for food with longline down to 1000 m deep. Blasted Tusk- and Ling fish floats like footballs on the surface. We get different species of sharks (which we put back alive) and strange fish from the depths of the wonderfully diverse Sognefjord outside Balestrand. Be prepared for some waves and unfamiliar monotonous working positions on board a moving boat. You can of course take the fish home if you want. We fillet and gut together if you want this. Tor guides in the background when needed and ensures that the logistics work safely and so this becomes a great experience of mastery.
You participate in the preparations 3 hours the night before, where we suit the line with herring and mackerel which we cut into pieces. Then we put it out in the fjord and leave it overnight. We pull up the line with line tails the next day for 4 hours
