Hemnessjøen is located in the municipality of Aurskog Høland in Akershus, Norway. The sea is surrounded by a fine cultural landscape and has several exciting wetland reserves with rich birdlife
The lake is located in the north of the Haldenvassdraget and can offer a particularly good pike fishing. The depth conditions are varying, but the sea is dominated by relatively shallow portions with a large density of fish.
This will be the first sea in Norway Pike Master. Hemnessjøen has a good population of edelkreps, so it is absolutely essential that all fishermen have this in mind and ensure that the equipment is properly disinfected. The start will go from Krageviken. There are 2 boat ramps in the lake, deployment of boats can be done on both ramps. There will be crews on both ramps for help in deployment of boats and disinfecting equipment. All boats must meet at Krageviken before start.
