Out fishing in the winter on a calm sea

Picture of fishing boat on the sea. Taken with Olympus E-500
Taken with Olympus E-500 digital camera

Fishing on the ocean in March is very early for me, but I could not resist with the wonderful weather.
The “wheel” you see in the boat is a fishing device used for deep water. It’s called “juksa” in Norwegian.
My grand father made it over 50 years ago and it still works like a charm.

In the horizon you can see the island Senja, the second largest island in Norway.

    Cool story. What type of fish do you go for in March in Norway? I do some ice fishing in Michigan and it’s mostly perch, crappie, Blue Gills and Pike on the smaller lakes.
