That is an understatement.  I have fished in this area and was
astounded.  Here was the process:

1. Drop a heavy-gauge line in the water with three large unbaited
   hooks spaced about one meter apart.
2. Immediately pull the line from the water.
3. Remove three fish (usually cod).
4. Repeat until you are bored.

No wonder the Icelanders fight wars over their fishing grounds.
