On the northern part of the island of Senja, just south of Tromso, shelters the location Mefjord Brygge in the town of Mefjordvaer. A high quality location where only one thing matters and that is catching fish! A large choice of different accommodations from 1 to 8 persons. Of course it is also very easy to accommodate larger groups of up to 50 people here. Well cared for, perfect service and a perfect fishing location, like almost all other spots in Northern Norway. Once again a perfect spot in our North Norway portfolio. The Mefjorden offers a high degree of shelter for the fisherman so there is little loss of fishing days. The fishery here is truly inexhaustible.
The location has several homes, all of which are well equipped to a high standard. The level of equipment is even high by Norwegian standards. In addition, there are of course freezers, drying room, sheltered filleting space, etc. available. And as in most Norwegian locations, the sauna and outdoor jacuzzi cannot be missed. Take a look at this movie that gives a good picture of the different accommodations directly on the water and the boats.
The surroundings of Mefjord are overwhelmingly beautiful and right next to the location a small river flows into the sea where the necessary salmonids are present. Directly on the right side the fjord continues to depths of more than 200 meters and on the left side towards the ocean these depths are also reached. However, there is a beautiful platform here at a depth of around 30 to 40 metres with the name 'Skreigrunnen'. The name says it all and this is a high-potential fishing spot that, in addition to cod, also produces a lot of halibut, wolffish and massive coalfish.
As at all locations in northern Norway, the fishery is simply good. There is a multitude of spots that are guaranteed to result in (large and abundant) fish. From small islands and shallows to 250 meter depths, there is a multitude of possibilities. Because of this diversity of bottom structures, there is a great diversity of food and therefore also of fish species. These include cod, halibut, redfish, wolffish, coalfish and tusk. The fishing spots are located in the reasonable close vicinity of the houses, so there is no need to sail for hours.
Would you like to fish in a very good and comfortable location with a high service level? Here it is possible and the season is long. In general you can come here when you want between mid March and October 1. So it is also possible to fish for skrei here. Especially when the platform in front of the door is called 'Skreigrunnen'. In this period from March to the beginning of May it can be very cold here. The focus is on large cod / skrei and wolffish. As the season progresses and the water temperature increases, the number of wolffish decreases and the number of halibut increases! But it is important to be well prepared because the weather can be erratic. It is therefore always wise to have a hat and gloves in your suitcase.
The position of this location is perfect. Sheltered in the Mefjord that flows into the Norwegian Sea, there is little chance of losing a fishing day here due to the wind. As in all northern locations, many and large fish are caught here.
It is a modern house in Norwegian style. The house has 1 double and 4 single rooms, with a capacity of 6 people. There is a spacious living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. All rooms are easily accessible from the hallway. The house is equipped with cable TV and wireless internet.

We especially recommend the house for a group of friends or a large family.

Hotel room with breakfast
For small groups of anglers, backpackers, cyclists and hikers we have nice, clean and simple hotel rooms with shared showers. There are a total of 10 rooms (9 of them can be used as double rooms) The rooms are equipped with cable TV and have wireless internet access. The sink is in the room but showers and toilets are shared. The separate entrances for men and women are easily accessible from the hallway. The rooms are on the 3rd floor of the main building and there is no elevator to the rooms.
There are 20 boats available of 19 feet (6.3 meters), 50 HP 4 stroke engines, GPS plotter and fish finder. The boats are suitable for up to 4 anglers and are equipped with a windscreen. Perfect boats in the sheltered Mefjord and the Norwegian Sea to get to the right fishing spots quickly and comfortably.
The materials for fishing are the same as in the other Northern locations. The heaviest material is between 20 and 30 lbs. Reels with dyneema from 15 to 20 kilo breaking strength. Fishing is mainly with shads but also pilks which vary from 150 to 500 grams depending on depth and current. If you are tired of lure fishing you can easily switch to a whole coalfish or mackerel on a live bait rig. This system works excellent for halibut and cod. But it's also fun to use a "lighter" set to go spinning for some "smaller" species.
For the enthusiasts there is the possibility to rent a large and fast boat of 36 feet for a maximum of 8 people. With this Sargo Explorer Fly Bridge you can reach the spots you can't reach with your own boat. And of course the captain's knowledge of spots is very extensive, which gives the fishing a special dimension that you can't reach with your own boat. The costs are for 6 hours 1375,- euro including captain and fuel.
You will fly from your local airport to Oslo and on to Tromso or Evenes on any day depending on available flights. This can be done with SAS airlines or Norwegian Airlines.

Groceries can be done in the town itself and the supermarket can be reached by a short walk and at the location itself there is also a restaurant where you are always welcome after a long day. A full board option is also available at extra cost. The location offers you the possibility to arrive any day you want and stay as long as you want.
