Lars Terje Godø has mounted our new Olwind Autolongline System onboard his new Selfa Artic 32 Speed fishing boat. He has been on a fishing trip to Myre in Vesterålen off the norwegian coast fishing haddock and cod for a few veeks.

”This is working very well. I fish using 15 bins on each trip and it is not hard to handle by myself at all. This equipment is fishing at least as good as the old system operated by hand and monofile longline.The last trip, I made, I caught approximately 1000 kilograms each bin which is very good fishing.When I set the longline there are no trouble or stress at all. I set the line sailing about 4 – 5.5 knots ahead.

The last trip, I made, I caught approximately 1000 kilograms each bin which is very good fishing.When I set the longline there are no trouble or stress at all. I set the line sailing about 4 – 5.5 knots ahead.I have worked on longliner fishingboats before, which use similar but bigger systems, but this system is working as good or better than on those bigger vessels. The baiting is working well too. Especially if you use a mixture of saury an squid.

I would like to highly recommend this sysem to others, who consider using it.
