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.

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.

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.

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.
