Week 18: Sensational beginning of the sea angling season 2012 in Iceland

Last week Iceland Sea Angling hf started successfully in the season 2012. The weather was at its best when 29 guests traveled to the Icelandic West fjords. Especially in the guided tours there were caught big fish.

Jörg Michael Bunzel caught 240 kilos of big cod in Ísafjörður within 8 hours. „The biggest was 1,26 meters and 17 kilos“,  guide Matthias Brill from Bolungarvík reports. Other guests caught wolffish, and also in this case they were successful. Two guests caught 20 wolffish in about 4 hours. Those fish weren't the smallest ones: They were about one meter. According to Matthias Brill there will be especially many wolffish in the fjord this year.

But it was Wihelm Aveskamp who was on to a winner on saturday afternoon. He managed to catch an especially big halibut. „I already had cought a 43-pounds cod, which had been the biggest fish in my life. And then, just before we wantd to return to Bolungarvík, I noticed there was a really big one on the fishing rod“, Aveskamp reports still somewhat exhausted when unloading the fish in Bolungarvík. There had been a monstrous halibut on his fishing rod: After half an hour of drilling the fish was heaved on board by four men. When everything had become official after weighing at the harbour, Wilhelm Aveskamp was totally happy: The halibut of almost 2,30 m was 120 kilos. This was of course celebrated well on saturday evening.
