Finally! After a half year of learning and testing the top 5 sonars in the world (at the moment) it feels just amazing to see the test in the new Båtliv that arrived today. It might be the worlds first comparison of the "BIG 5" brands at this level.

Lately have been crazy! My wife is in Ecuador and our dog is babysitted by a good friend. This leaves me free to work as much as I want or should I say; have the time to! I´ve been working all over Scandinavia lately, and had a good time with old and new friends. Mostly I´ve been working as a marketing consultant with the cool guys at NQ Sport, but also done fishing trips to Denmark and boat testing and other article journeys in Norway for the magazines Alt om Fiske and Jakt & Fiske. But...

Not all stories can have a happy ending. Spesially not if you´re a fisherman! This is one of these stories. Longum Lake in Arendal is famous for it´s pike fishing. It delivers from time to time 10 kg + pikes and has so much food (perch and whitefish) in it, that it can hold many big ones without any problems. The thing that is sad, is that lately it doesn´t deliver like it used to do. I have fished this lake for years, and know many experienced fishers than trolls and drifts this lake so...

Yesterday I went out with my Dad to fish for lobsters. We started our day at my parents lovely house in Tvedestrand, South Norway. The house is just a stone cast from the sea, and this day was very quiet and there was no wind at all. Lobster fishing in Norway is allowed from October to December and with 10 traps per boat. My Dads boat is perfect for this kind of fishing, and has a Mariner 90HP engine and a warm cabin. Because of heavy weather, my Dad fishes inside the outer islands and that...

On saturday 29 June the National Trolling competition was held. It´s one of the largest fishing competitions in Norway and this year was a little special. First of all, it was the 10th anniversary for the competition and with a new main sponsor (Jakt & Friluft AS) things changed a little bit.

About one week ago, I went out to fish with Aslak from Team Blega, and Bernt from Hooked.no. We where out to promote the Jakt & Friluft School of Trolling in Arendal and to make a short movie about trolling techniques in general. After some serious cutting and a few hours on the computer, Bernt pubished this video today on www.hooked.no. There isn't any reason to talk to much about this, just press play and watch! I am quite happy with the results, and even if the weather was horrible, we...

In my latest article in the magazine Alt om fiske, you can read about the exiting drop shot fishing in the sea. Togeter with my friends, Martin Ellingsen and Preben Thorbjørnsen we manage to catch a lots of different species and sizes of fish from my boat in Arendal. I really believe that drop shot fishing is something every experienced fisherman should try to get a better understanding of how to present softbaits in this super realistic way. I hope you will find the story interresting!

Finally after more than one month waiting, the final result is here! Me, Martin Ellingsen (Jakt & Friluft AS, Asker), Bernt Nor (Hooked.no) and Cato Bekkevold (As the King of the Big Fishes Himself) went to the inner Oslofjord to fish seatrout on the ice. We headed out to Snarøya to a secret (not so secret anymore) spot, where Cato has caught many seatrouts in the past. Even if we didn´t fill the ice sled with seatrouts, we had a fantastic day on the ice, and of course - with almost no...

Asgeir Alvestad is a famous Norwagian fisherman, and he is well known for his in depth fishing shows. The show he had 18/2 was no different. He showed how to get more seatrout and how to be more effective on deep water vertical fishing. Totally about 50 people attended to the show that was held in the store in Arendal. It´s specially fun for me to see his show and reed his books. He uses a lots of my photos in his work and for me it´s an honor when a guy like Asgeir askes for photos. I am...
