”Skrei” fishing 2018!
Winter fishing in Dolmsundet is one of the most exciting and big catch fishing you can experience in Hitra. Summer fishing has its charm, but there is nothing like glassy water, blue sunny skies, fresh sparkling winter air and big skrei! (Skrei is BIG spawning cod). So this week we decided to go fishing for the skrei and to see if it had returned to Dolmsundet to spawn.
My grandson Sander and I, went fishing for the skrei. We slowly trawled and worked our way checking Dolmsundet, but there was no fish in sight and the fish finder was acting like a silent grave. I found it very odd that there was no fish in sight. This was not boding well. Intuitivly I thought I should go to Vågan to check for fish there. Wow! The fishfinder suddenly goes off big time. According to the fish finder there is a whole shoal of small and large fish. We got our rods ready and we cast our lines, immediatly we got big fish on! Sander is jigging and working his rod and spent some time pulling up a 9.5 kg skrei. It’s the largest fish Sander has caught rod fishing and I’m pulling a skrei of 8 kg. and we keep catching big skrei. We keep on fishing and skrei and another skrei, and it turns out to be a big catch of many skrei in the same size! And my grandson Sander has had the big fishing experience of his life.
So we can confirm that the skrei has returned and winter fishing has officially begun. We still have accomodation and boat rentals available until March 18 if you want to experience the big skrei fishing in Dolmsundet.
