Mefjord Brygge

The island of Senja, Senja Island is the second largest island of Norway, with its beauty and diversity of landscapes it is often called Norway in miniature. This is the best place for those who want to see and understand the beauty of this harsh land and enjoy its rich and fascinating fishing. Here on the island all the superlatives and fishing base on which we invite You is no exception. Base in the village of Mefjordvær, in the North of the island of Senja, on a promontory, near the best fishing grounds, provides wide range of services and accommodation, from economy class to VIP.
Within a radius of 20 km are the two best "split-POINT" of the region: "Skreigrunnsdjupet" and "Fallbakken". Cod, saithe, haddock, Menik and catfish are the most common fish species in the region. The last few years, it is very good and halibut fishing — there are often quite large specimens. This is likely due to the fact that for many years near the fjords is forbidden to use revitalume trawlers, and the population of halibut has grown. During the fishing season near the base you can catch halibut almost daily!
The climate on the other side of the island that faces the mainland, some more severe than on the coast of the Norwegian sea. Winters are mild; however, occasionally there are strong winds because of which the comfort level goes down.

Aprils is undoubtedly the most suitable month for catching big cod, which is called skrei. It can reach up to 30-40 kg. This type of cod comes to Mefjord from the Barents sea by the end of December and remains until the end of April - beginning of may. Skrei have a characteristic whitish color of the body, in contrast to coastal cod, which color is Golden brown because of the algae on which it feeds. An experienced fisherman will not be difficult to distinguish between these two species of fish. Skrei migratory fish, so it has more developed muscles, which its meat is considered of higher quality, it is tender and white. In April you can certainly catch and other fish that are also good pecking from may to July.
