The latest issue of Sea Watch – the video magazine for shore and boat anglers – sees Dean Macey spending the night of the summer solstice fishing off Norway with angling journalist Dave Barham and fishing tour operator Ian Peacock.
They head out after 10pm in broad daylight in the hands of a local skipper who is taking them to an area that has produced incredible halibut – the king of all flatfish – to OVER 400LB!
Conditions are kind and the boys are catching quality cod from the very first drop down, and as the midnight sun peaks over the horizon on the summer solstice, Dave latches into his first ever halibut, a fish he’s been trying to catch for years – quickly followed by Ian.
This episode of Dean’s series Land of the Midnight Sun, sponsored by www.visitnorway.com and Dintur Holidays, is free to view online, on mobile and on Samsung Smart TV.
