Affordable and right by the sea


Affordable and right by the sea




This location is located north of the illusive island of Leka. From this harbour the ferry to Holm sails as a 'main road' of the FV 17. This location is characterized by the large differences in depths. In the house fjord you find depths of over 500 meters but east and north of Vennesund are many shallows and that means that there is a lot of current during tides. And a lot of current is good for fishing!


At only a few kilometres distance and therefore a few minutes sailing are good locations with names like Gamflesa, Langtaren, Stortaren, Steinstaren etc. All these are shallow spots where it is only a few meters deep and they are right next to depths of more than 200 metres. A perfect and challenging fishing area because of the great variety in depths.


And if the sea is a bit too rough then you sail further into the fjord or under the bridge through the sheltered northern part of the Lyngvaerfjorden and you have the shelter of the land and there are several spots where you can still fish very well. All in all, this is a typical location for Norway that will offer you a lot of fishing fun.
