We are driving out at the Barents sea, sometimes we also bring with fishing rods, for deep sea fishing for the Cod, delicious deep sea fish, the main sea food export product of Norway.
Lunch will be served on deck on the boat
We approach the King Crab fishing banks, where we have set out the traps some days before.
Exciting moment - will we have the luck to get the Crabs??
This is nature: Some days we get a lot - some days we get nothing!
The action starts. We are winching up the traps one by one. If one is empty we continue to the next. Hopefully we will have the deck full of these King Crab Monsters.
The captain will tell the story of the King Crab during his work on deck.
After the traps have been set back to the sea we are setting course for Adventure Camp Mehamn again. We stop by the pier at the adventure Camp and deliver the catch to our restaurant chef.
