A trip including competitions and observational exercises with instruction.
We meet on Knutholmen pier, where we put on warm clothing and sou’westers before boarding the fishing smack. There is a short briefing on the trip before we cast off and set course for the fishing ground. We organise competitions involving fishing and observational exercises. Good catches of cod, pollock, haddock, tusk, ling, catfish, halibut, crab and conger eel are possible.
We will also look out for sea eagles, cormorants, auks, black-throated divers, seals, orcas and other whales.
Briefings and instruction will be given regularly throughout the trip. Return to Knutholmen, mooring and aquavit!
Food and drink may be served on board. The trip takes 3 hours but can be extended to 5 hours if desired.
