Easy to get hooked on fishing

Few things are more exhilarating than spending time out at sea in a real fishing boat, the feeling when you realise that you’ve got a big fish on your line and the struggle to get it over the rail.Cod weighing up to 15 kilos are by no means exceptional along the Trøndelag coast, and if you get a halibut on the line, you will be given a real workout whether you want it or not.

Great conditions for sea fishing and fjord fishing

Deep sea fishing along the coast of Trøndelag is internationally known. Along the entire coastline, from Hitra and Frøya in the south to Leka in the north, you have good fishing conditions.
