Weather conditions

Several weatherstations can give you a general idea on the weather conditions so you can see if trip will be possible. However, one should always call the day before trips between 16.30 to 18.00 hours for confirmation about the trip out, but remember that the weather can change quickly and provide other conditions.

The major part of the year Albatros makes angling trips within the range of 30 nautic miles from Hirtshals har-bour. Weather conditions must be reasonable to make the trip a good experience. Not too strong wind and waves not too high.  The water should be clear and current below 1 knot. When fishing on the small stone reefs and stony bottom along the coast from Hirtshals to Løkken we mainly catch Cod, pollack and other species. Early in the season we sometimes see Ling and Catfish. In july, august and september we catch a lot of mackerel and some garfish. When angling on The Yellow Reef we generally find more species and bigger fish. We recommend jigs weighing 150 – 300 grams – on The Yellow Reef though 200 – 500 grams.

Hangers is a good idea – type and colors etc. would be a question about your own ideas and experience. That goes for bait aswell.
