last few weeks has brought about a massive influx of sandeels here in mid norway.
The steams have been so concentrated that after a mackerel feeding frenzy here in our harbour at Hustadvika we found the bottom littered with dead eels - most likely from shock or oxygen starvation.
Offshore that has not brought about a massive change - the marks we use are still very good but the last few months has brought about some very good cod catches with several in the 20kg mark - suprising everyone.
The pollock though - we are catching sometimes 3 pollock at a time each over the 5 lb mark.
Our best catching tools remain swedish pilk and mackerel feathers (pretty much everything) even the 20kg cod - and rubber worms - mostly the darker kinds.
Here is a little article from nrk about coal fish catches (apolagies its in Norwegian)

Thanks for the report Bertie. It is amazing when there is a feeding frenzy going on when the Sandeels are about in vast numbers.

Have landed Cod over 30lb and Halibut too that are literally stuffed to the gills with them in the same session.

The Cod in particular were so full that their bellies were solid with eels and it is a wonder that they had enough room to swallow a 23cm shad lure.
