Deep sea fishing on the Moskenesstraumen (Malestrom).
The waters around the Lofoten Islands, particularly the Vestfjord and the Maelstrom, can be described as the dream of every angler. There is an richness in fish that is not easy to find somewhere else. There are only a few areas of the world, comparable to that area. Look forward to a deep sea fishing in summer under the light of the midnight sun.
In front of the southern tip of the Lofoten islands, near to Å, the famous Maelstrom (Norwegian: Moskenesstraumen) is located.
It runs between the island Moskenesøy and the uninhabited rocky island Mosken. This current is known as one of the world’s strongest and most dangerous tidal currents. By 4 to 5 kilometers wide and only 40 to 60 meters deepness – huge water masses pour tidal changes from the North Atlantic Ocean in the Vestfjord or flow back again.
This strong current is the reason why there is so much big fish.
Here you can get big sized halibut, cod, coalfish and others.
In Lofoten you can see the midnight sun from the end of May to the middle of July. But light hour is already from the beginning of May and the middle of August!
