Tom i thought that the swim bladder was blown once they come up from a depth ?

They may be in 100m of water, but many of those fish are taken high up as they cahse teh bait fish shoals.
Early on in the video you can see the guy releasing a codling.

Almost all cod caught in Norway will swim strongly back down, if they are handled correctly on board the boat. Even a 2lb codling caught in 600ft will go back without any problem. Usually its the bigger fish, 30lb plus, that are more likely to not go back without coaxing, but that is usually due to excessive time photographing them. As a result most fish on the trips I take are released, we generally only keep a few of the badly hooked ones for food.

The same is true for wolf fish, coalfish & halibut, but unfortunately torsk, pollack, ling and redfish will suffer from a blown swim bladder.

As for winning the lottery to afford a trip, its a lot cheaper to fish in Norway than you might think, unless you want a drinking holiday! Contact Anglers World Holidays on tel: 01246 221717 for a brochure.

The last place we want to chase the Norwegian cod is anywhere near the UK! It's because nobody apart from the locals can fish for them commercially that the stocks are so healthy! Same in Iceland...non-EU!!

Marcus, yes the golden grey fishing at Llangennith is great; might organise a forum readers days down there if there is enough interest?

All the best.

Cool vid. Its was just the constant "This fish must weigh 20 Kaay gees" (kg) that got on my wick. What happened to pounds?

I think you'll find that they've never used pounds in Norway :) Most of the kids nowadays wouldn't know what pounds and ounces are so it's up to us old yins to keep up!

YouTube is proving to be a brilliant source of fishing videos these days.
