Love the tidal currents! This time i was in Lukksund.
The goal was to explore som new areas and look for the big fish!
The goal was completed with a new personal best pollock 5,6kg.
Did see som BIG shy ones keeping good distanse.
My aspetto is getting better and i am starting to be back in grate form.
Normal dives was 1min to 1min 30sec and the longest dive was 2min.
Spearfishing is not the only fishing i do.
A good day by the lake landet me this dinner
One of my favoritt delicacy from the ocean is scallops!
My lates dive i went looking for the sweet scallops. To not over pick one area i was looking for a new spot. The new spot i found started with a cliff going strait down to 10 meters and den som big rocks to 17 meters. This is the most scallops i found in one spot! Every dive it was 3-6 scallops! Only thing is it got deeper quick and i try not to go deeper than 20 meters.
Just another awesome day in the amazing underwaterworld!
This weekend i tried out two new spots with grate results. This area also got a strong tidal current. Nice shallow water. some of the deep spots were 11-12 meter.
Saw a few cod and ballan wrasse. The cod was around 2-4 kg and very jumpy so did not get close enough for a shot.
The flat fish was a drifterent matter. The habitat was amazing for flat fish. Strong current, shallow and nice sandy patches. Found the biggest european plaice i ever seen! Was recovering from a dive and snorkeling like a fat tourist over a sandy area about 5-6 m deep. I see it strait away form my high point, to big to hide! The speargun is ready as i dive, the plan is to take spear it on the speargun without shooting the speargun.
Even if the plan is only to stab it i am ready to shoot if it makes a run/swim for it 🙂
Get a perfect stab and it is stuck to my speargun stoned.
I also met som angry locals that told me i was stupid to dive in that area because of boats. I calmly told him i only seen two boats in the almost 2 hours i been there and if we showed som consideration we could all be happy. Was yelled at some more before they sailed off. When i dive i always keep an aye on boat traffic and dive outside de boat lanes.
On the way back i find a nice turbot to end the day with 🙂
1 European plaice 3,5kg
1 Turbot 1,9kg
2 Lemon sole
Tried a new spot this weekend. Good strong tidal current and the area looks promising. It’s been sunny for a few days som its a big blossom of plankton and zooplankton in the surface and the visibility gets better the deeper you go.
It’s a fun time to dive in Norway in the spring. Every time you dive its more life popping up. After about 10 dives i like the area but dont see any big fish.
After swimming down a steep rock side i notice something gliding parallel to me on the left side. I notice it at the point when i was about to turn. At this point it dont look som big, turning slowly and trying to get a little closer. The shot is good. The spear gets in the head, diagonally from behind and out close to the mouth and this is when i see the size compared to the spear and it only get’s 10cm through. My speargun is connected to my float and i swim to the surface.
Taking it easy pulling the cod up, just realizing how big it is when i get it in my hands. The head is massive! And the scale stops on 9,88kg!
My last personal best was the wolffish on 8,5kg from 2 weeks ago. This is turning out to be an awesome year!
