Hemmingodden is the new top location on the Lofoten! Located in Ballstad, just around the corner from Nappstraumen, this is a comfortable and very professional fishing location.
The lodge is located right on the water and offers several types of holidayhomes and fishing boats. From this location the fishing is just perfect. The lodge is located very sheltered in the southern part of the Lofoten and overlooks the fjord and impressive mountains which are so distinctive for the Lofoten.
Nappstraumen is a very well known and good fishing area. With the coming and going of the tides, both in the Nappstraumen and the various islands and shallows around Ballstad and surroundings, there is a perfect current where the fish linger to find their prey of the day.
To the left you sail into the Nappstraumen area and to the right into the Buksnesfjorden where you can still catch your fish when the weather is not so good. Take the professional fishing boats and the impressive surroundings and you find yourself in the Valhalla of Norway.
South of the Nappstraumen there are several islands such as Svinoya, Eggeloysa, Kvalbaken, Folfoten, Graenholmen and Batskjaeret. The Straumen itself is around 45 meters deep and these islands and surrounding shallows are perfect spots for halibut.
To the south with outgoing water and to the north with rising water you can catch your dream fish here. But also cod, pollock on the deeper parts where it drops to 100 meters and more. Or haddock, ling, redfish and catfish.
And how about pollock around the islands? Nice active fishing casting your sandeels or shads. You can do any type of fishing here, even up to popping for coalfish in the right season.
