The north side of the Norwegian island Söröya and the cold water of the Barents Sea
I am a Swedish kayak angler with a dream of catching some of the biggest fish that exists. I am an expedition type of angler and I will often set my target and work hard at reaching my goal. This summer I made an attempt at catching a Greenland shark from my kayak and I was fortunate enough to catch a 1247lb specimen outside the island of Andörja in north Norway. I love cold water and thefish that live there. I spend the summers fishing for giant Atlantic halibuts, coalfish and cod. I fish with many techniques, anything from live baiting to speed jigging, lure fishing and trolling. In fresh water I fish for big pikes with heavy lures as well as Wels catfish and salmon.
