There are good conditions for the fish in Lofoten by Brettesnes. The Gulf Stream brings many fish species from the south, and arctic species migrate from the north. The most common fish species that are fished for cod, saithe, redfish, catfish, herring, bream, flounder, halibut, salmon and crab. The seals and killer whales are frequently observed in offshore Lofoten.
In the week before and after midsummer there are good opportunities for fishing for salmon. The fishermen in Lofoten use nets and traps for fishing. Each species has its season, but all can be caught all year round. The best time for cod fishing is March and April, and a week before and after midsummer is the best time to fish for salmon.
We would recommend you to rent a boat and go out to fish, and when you got caught, go ashore at one of the many beautiful beaches you will find both Lillemolla and Store Molla.På late summer / fall there are good opportunities to find both fungi and various bærsorter and you can light a fire on the beach and cook yourself a nice meal with what nature has to offer..
