On two boats, tourists last weekend succeeded to fish as much as 47 Norwegian cod over 20 kg, 23 cod over 25 kg, and seven cod over 30 kg, reports the tourist fishing company Nordic Sea Angling on its website.
Booking Manager Jimmy Andersson says that they brought a group of tourist fishermen to the waters off the South Island which lie outside the coast of Western Finnmark.
- Two of the cod the guest fishermen pulled up were over 38 kilograms, and it is the largest we have got this year, says Andersson to NRK.
- The two largest one we actually released again. It would be a shame for the species not to continue with so beautiful specimens. But we weighed them on the boat, so with a little margin for error, they were about 38 kg, says Andersson.
Sørøya (South Island) has long been a popular spot for outdoor enthusiasts. On land there are more hare than most other places, which attract many visiting hunters.
At sea the huge fish counts, and many huge cod are pulled up from the depths. The Norwegian record is 41.7 kg
Halibuts are also unusually huge there. Fisherman Tom Richard Kristiansen in the fall of 2007 got a halibut of 314 kilograms from the ocean depths off the South Island. Unofficially it is the largest halibut that has been fished in the country after WW2.
