Sheltered sea fishing in northern Norway


Sheltered sea fishing in northern Norway


This location can be considered one of the best inshore locations in Norway because it is very sheltered and therefore has little downtime on windy days. Just around the corner from Storekorsnes you can reach Vargnsundet, Stjernsundet, Rognsundet or Aroysundet in no time, where there is a lot of structure in the water so there is always a current. Depths of 20 to 500 meters guarantee this.


This location is opposite the island of Seiland which is located right next to Soroya. All in all leading names when it comes to large fish in which the halibut plays one of the leading roles. But certainly also cod, coalfish, wolffish, haddock and redfish can be found here. All sheltered and on your doorstep!


From July until the end of September the halibuts enter this fjord where they hunt on the shallower parts of the Korsfjord. Literally you can see the halibut shooting through here and sometimes out of the water. And these 30 to 40 pounders are not the largest halibut, but with a suitable medium spinning rod of 100 to 150 grams you can really experience a real feast.


Just 60 kilometres from the airport of Alta is this a beautiful and quiet fishing location. With a large holiday home for up to 10 people and two smaller houses for up to 4 people each. Directly opposite the houses is a short walking distance from the harbour with the filleting area with running water, the freezers and storage for drying the fish clothes.


Here you can also read the story of John Smit of the Dutchanglers who fished at this location.


There are three different residences available here.


House 1 max 10 persons

This house has everything we fishermen need. It is 120 m2 and in total there are 4 bedrooms with 10 single beds. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, kettle, oven, 4 burner stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer. There is also a terrace of 20 m2 which overlooks the fjord and where a BBQ is included in the garden furniture. It is neat but somewhat dated. But with your eyes closed you won't notice much of it.


House 2 max 4 persons

This house has been completely renovated and looks like new. It is 60 m2 where the kitchen is fully equipped with all comforts such as oven, four burner stove, coffee maker, kettle, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and freezer. In addition, this house has its own sauna and from the living room you have a view over the fjord. How luxurious would you like it to be? There are a total of three bedrooms, two with a single bed and one with two single beds.


House 3 max 4 persons

This house is the same as house 2 with the exception that it does not have a sauna.


The changeover day is optional and the final cleaning, water, electricity, bed linen and towels are included. The house must be clean and the kitchen completely clean in the end.


There are 4 boats available on site:


1 x Dolmøy 23 feet with 100 HP and GPS/fishfinder

2 x Kvaernø 19 feet with 60 HP and GPS/fishfinder (Lowrance HDS 5)

1 x Kvaernø 20 feet with 90 HP and GPS/fishfinder


All these boats are widely used boats in Norway. They have well proven their qualities and offer comfortable and good sailing characteristics. Refuelling is done on site in the harbour and can be paid by credit card.
