Å in June: 85-kg-Butt drilled
The Maelstrom is certainly one of the top halibut areas in Northern Europe. For several years there was more and more fishing for halibut. Therefore, we support Catch & Release, especially for large animals above 1,40 meters. Nevertheless, it is not forbidden to take a “super-catch”, like here with scarcely 100 kg / 220 Lbs – 1.95 m / 6,4 ft. However, it is not allowed to take a trophy fish since 2018. You should therefore think carefully what you want to do with the whole fish, as per person a maximum of 20 kg of filet may be exported.
