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.

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.

No fish

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

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.
