More than 10 years ago we were the first fishing travel agency to include Havoysund in our portfolio! We have fished here many years, many times and we know the region, the spots and the conditions like the back of our hand. We offer our guests a super interesting package at this location, at a very interesting price!
The region is known for the large quantity of fish and in particular halibut. There are many platforms here which, in combination with the large tidal differences, provide ideal conditions for halibut. Every year, several halibut are caught here above 2 metres. But coalfish, wolffish and cod are also very well present here. Certainly also because the island is surrounded by platforms that are ideal for halibut but further offshore there are perfect drop offs where the cod and coalfish like to stay in large shoals. For lovers of large schools of plaice it is also well worthwhile to visit Trollvika bay with its sandy bottom and actively chase these magnificent fish.
The various islands in the region such as Masoy, Hjelmsoya and Rolvsoya are teeming with platforms where large halibut are regularly caught. But the bays of these islands also offer good opportunities for targeted fishing for halibut. In addition to the large amount of plateaus, there are also drop offs here where you can target large cod and coalfish. There are also wolffish, haddock and redfish. In recent years, this location has developed into a top spot where halibut is caught in a targeted, frequent and regular manner and it is therefore recommended to make reservations early. Preferably a year in advance.
On the northern part of the island of Rolvsoya, on the small island of Fruholmen, you will find the northernmost lighthouse in Europe. For those who have fished in this location know that you will never forget this place and its overwhelming nature. It is also very well possible to descend to the south and fish around Skipsholmen and Austergrunnen. But also north of Havoysund, the Akkarfjord and the Kjerkenesgrunnen are waiting for you. All in all this is a fantastic fishing area where it is extremely likely that you are going to beat your personal records.
