Hi fellas AND ladies. Just trying to find out if any of you guys have been to Norway to fish for the monster cod there. Me and my father have always wanted to do it and as his birthday is coming up soon i thought it would be a great present for him. Have seen and read about so many companies doing the holidays but not sure which one to go for. Any advice well be great

Cheers guys

I helped deliver the Troms Explorer to Norway along with Tom Bettle and can vouch for the boat and the people running it. The weather we went up to Norway in (from Poole) was not shall we say ideal but the boat handled it faultlessly albeit it hard work at the helm in rough seas.

The boat is designed with their kind of fishinng in mind which is all done on the drift. The boat is a cat with at least a metre wide walkway for the whole 42ft of length so plenty of room

Have a look at their website http://www.troms-explorer.com/

Hi, You wouldnt like it there mate, too many of these and they take bloomin ages to reel in, coz when you hook 'em they steam all the way down to the bottom, then when you get 'em up they go all the way back down again!!!:clap2::clap2::clap2:






Maybe you prefer the more gentle Cod, just 25lbs this one..

I will be adding a report shortly, I am currently over in Norway leaving later, what a week!!!!
