Shore Fishing at Skarnsundet

Skarnsundet Fjordsenter is the perfect destination to enjoy your shore fishing holiday in Norway. There are more species than you can imagine and fish of a lifetime waiting for you!

Skarnsundet was the first fishing camp in Norway to offer organised shore fishing holidays and now we have  more than 500 shore anglers visiting us every year. The shore fishing could not be any easier, regardless of your ability there are marks that will suite every angler, from strong tidal currents, sandy beaches and deep gullies. After 2017 we restricted the amount of shore anglers to 12 persons per week. This has many advantages for the fish stocks and anglers.

Shrilly beach – Shirlys beach is a great mark and just a three hundred meter walk from you apartment. I think the mark fishes best Four hours either side of low water. Lots of species to target from this mark. My preferred rig is a pulley rig and small baits. Good luck


Straumen Point – Straumen point is a fantastic venue. Fishing the full Ebb from HW to LW can give the best results. Many 20lb – 30lb cod are caught from this mark each season both on bait and shads.

Shad fishing at Straumen – Straumen point is located 15 min drive from Skarnsundet and is a fantastic venue to catch cod and pollock on light plastic lures!

Lure fishing at pollock point – Pollock point is a great mark for pollock using soft plastic lures!

Leksvik beach – Leksvik beach is a fantastic mark with a great range of species to target. I often fish a ports mouth loop rig on this venue and find the best time in the tide is the Ebb and a couple of hours of the flood
