Boats at Lauksletta House
Lauksletta House is a really well run family accommodation in a scenic setting with excellent access to both sheltered and offshore fishing marks, the best in the area. You certainly do not have to travel far for great fishing for Cod, Halibut, Coalfish and Wolf fish.
Subject to weather this is an excellent area to target the big spring cod, late March through to April. There is prolific fishing through the summer months for all species with big coalfish generally arriving July onwards. Halibut can be caught anytime but September into early October is usually when the big halibut arrive.
Shore fishing for smaller cod is possible and in spring/early summer there is excellent sea trout fishing nearby where there is a fresh water inflow.
There are three self-catering apartments in the main house, each offering comfortable accommodation for 2 to 4 persons. The property can therefore cater for groups of up to 12 comfortably.
