Season over

This years fishing season is concluded. The last 2 days were without a fish. The boat will be out of the water tomorrow and were going back to Germany on Monday.
Complete I caught 16 fish, total weight 92 kg. But apart from the 10+ on Vänern, the fishing was below average. Remarkable is that the biggest fish was from Vänern, were the average weight of the salmon is half of them in the Baltic sea.

Empty water

Todays trip gave only 1 small salmon. The Swedish waters looking to be empty, so a change in the tactic will be needed tomorrow.

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

2nd Bornholm trip

The 2nd Bornholm trip gave 1 salmon of 6 kg. The last 3 days will be fished in Swedish waters.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

Bornholm trip

As the Swedish waters were not productive the last days I decided to go to danish waters near Bornholm. The result, 1 Salmon of 3.5kg and a Seatrout of 6.5 kg. Tomorrow will be the same destination as there were some big fish caught today.

The weather does it again

A new high pressure area with a lot of sun and no wind is messing up the fishing again. It will be tough to get something in the next days. Today was zero again.

Sunday, May 4, 2008

No fish

No wind at all, a lot of sun and to many boats on my favorite spot resulted in no fish today.

Saturday, May 3, 2008

Nice day on the water

After a windy and foggy morning the weather changed to almost perfect. I had 2 strikes, which resulted in 1 salmon of 8.5 kg and and an empty hook. The first big fish are coming in, so hopefully there will be soon a big fish day in Simrishamn.

2nd day, 2 fish

The second day was even better than the first. I caught 2 salmon, 7.7 and 7.0 kg. The weather looks good and the fish are coming.

First Day Simrishamn

We arrived yesterday afternoon in Simrishamn and were greeted by a strong and cold eastern wind and only 5 degrees centigrade. We put the boat in the water and moved into our rented house. Today I went out late, because of the bad weather forecast, which was once more wrong. I started fishing at 12.00 o'clock and got one salmon at 3.00 PM. The fish was 8.5 kg. Not bad for the first day as the fishing was not good in the last week.

Last Day on Vänern

The last day gave 2 trout, 5 + 3.5 kg and 3 small ones. The boat is already out of the water and Wednesday in moving day.

Sunday, April 27, 2008

Nothing changed

One more day without fish in the boat, only 2 strikes without result. Tomorrow will be the last day
fishing in Vänern before we move to Simris.

The wind came back

The wind is back but a little bit to much in the morning. We fished yesterday's hot spots, but the fish were blown away, so one more day without fish.

Friday, April 25, 2008

From bad to worse

The weather is still the same and today was the first day without fish contact. It can get better only.

Thursday, April 24, 2008

No improvement

The spot I fished the last day's was empty today, I got only 2 undersized and one strike. Now the weather is about to change, hopefully the fish behavior as well.

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Still sunny and calm

The sun is still shinning and no wind, which makes the fishing not easier. Today I had one strike that gave 1 salmon of 4,5 kg. But at least the baitfish in the Dalbergsaa are biting, so tomorrow will be the first tour with "Löja", which should be much better in this conditions than fishing with wobbler.

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Another one fish day

Today's fishing was similar than yesterday's, it gave 1 salmon with 4 kg, one small one and a wild salmon to be released.

Monday, April 21, 2008

Back to normal

After the excitement of yesterday, we're back to normal. Today I caught 1 salmon, 4 kg and lost one during the netting with a broken hook. The fishing is quite difficult as the fish are not feeding, the stomach was empty with all salmon.

Sunday, April 20, 2008

Big fish day

The lake was like a mirror, the sun was shinning from a blue sky, a weather for getting a nice sun tan or play a round of golf, rather than fishing for salmon. But the luck and the size was with me.
After having lost one fish right at noon and some unsuccessful time, I decided to change places to another spot, where some other boats already caught fish. Soon after arriving I got a fish on the 12m downrigger rod. A tough fight followed and the third netting attempt was successful. The fish was measured 95cm and weighted in the harbor being 10.05 kg. The second biggest I've caught in Vänern up to date and a real big fish day.

Early morning bite

Today's trip started early as well as the bite. Until 10 AM, I got 1 salmon, 5 kg, 3 undersized and one pike, who swallowed the wobbler. A major surgery was needed to recover the valuable bait.
After that, nothing happened until I called it a day, at 4 PM.

Afternoon outing

The afternoon outing gave 1 salmon, 5 kg and one wild salmon from the same size which had to go back to the lake. The water was calm after a windy morning, the sun shinning , which was nice for fishing but not for catching.

Thursday, April 17, 2008

No fishing today

No fishing today, too much wind from North-East. Even the baitfish in the Dalbergsaa were not biting. For tomorrow the weather forecast looks better.

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

4 hours fishing only

Today I fished only 4 hours due to a cold and strong northern wind. I caught 1 undersized trout and lost one good fish.

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

First day fishing, 2 fish

This morning we launched the boat. The first trip gave 2 fish, 1 salmon 5 kg, 1 trout 3.5 kg and 2 lost fish. The fish took Bomber and Fastrac Wobbler on the surface.

Monday, April 14, 2008

Boat ready for launch

After some maintenance on house and boat, we're ready for launch tomorrow.
