Summer, with the midnight sun, is Sørøya's high season for deep sea fishing. Two months of continuous daylight can encourage the most enthusiatic deep sea fishers to keep going for days. Most of the deep sea fishermen are attracted to Sørøya by the dream of the Giant Cod.
The island of Sørøya lies far out on the fringes of the Arctic Ocean, situated in the midst of one of the world's richest fishing grounds. This is a paradise for deep sea fishermen of all levels - with countless breeds of fish. Every season is high season here. Here you will find active fishing communities.
Once upon a time, in the old days, before television and radio had reached Sørøya and before the newspapers from Southern Norway were flown in daily, people here in the north had to stand the rough climate and the wind. Under such harsh conditions, people had to rely on themselves, that is their observationalskills, in order to persist.
