    Part 2: Here be monsters!

    We woke next morning to great weather and this fantastic sight from our apartments.
    Mick Cave was now well in the lead with his 18lb plus Cod from the night before and this fish looked a safe bet to take the £70 winnings!


    Colin Green Snr was up with the larks and managed to blag a short trip out on the boat with Phill while the rest of us were still dreaming of fish from the night before.

    An absolute flat calm on the fjord and Colin came back from his little outing with a couple of Codling boated and the widest smile I've ever seen on any one's face before. :lol:


    The plan today was to go back to the Landing for a few hours and then on to Straumen a little later to fish over low tide.

    The Landing

    Colin Green Snr with a Haddock caught in daylight.


    At the Landing as soon as darkness fell the fish began to bite in good numbers.

    Nicky was on fire at this point and he took another cracking Cod of 14lb 13 ounces and a near 7lb Haddock.


    We pulled in more Haddock, Coalfish and Codling to 4lb before we were picked up by Phill Dale for our move to Straumen.



    Phill talked about the possibility of taking 30lb plus Cod here so we tackled up accordingly. :wink: Mr Dale got his rod out finally and showed us all how it's done pulling in a stream of Haddock and Codling, along with the odd one for us.


    This was when the man who was "fishing like a trawler", Nicky, beat Phill's previous best with a 28lb 4 ounce Cod. We were all so chuffed that we jumped in the pic with the "Trawler" to. :lol:

    Nicky was back in the lead and it looked like the winnings were to be his. :wink:


    A cast or two later and the "Trawler" had a cracking bite that resulted in this outstanding 48lb 7 ounce Cod, :shock: unbelievable!!! We all stood around the fish not really believing our eyes and were ready to hand over the winnings then and there. What a lump, none of us have ever seen a fish that big before. :shock:

    28lb'er and 48lber within a couple of casts... not to mention his catch slightly earlier at the Landing, unreal!


    We were all bouncing in the van on the way back to the apartments and a sleepless night was had by all, personally I couldn't get what I'd witnessed out of my head all night!

    Catch part three tonight......... the fright of our lives! :lol:
