First part of salmon season over

Today we pulled the boat out of the water, tomorrow it will go for service and on Saturday we're heading to Simrishamn. The first part of Vänern fishing is over, there might be some fishing end of May depending on the water temperature and the migration of the salmon.
The expectations for the fishing in the Baltic Sea are high as the last month has been extra ordinary.

Finally 3 salmon in the boat

Today I finally managed to get 3 salmon in the boat, but as I was accompanied by my neighbor Kristoffer it wasn't "Full Pott". Kristoffer is normally good for 4 fish as he was today as well, the 4th one was a big and hard fighting "Monster"-wild-salmon of around 8 kg which we had to release. We caught also 2 small salmon, a good fishing day after yesterdays empty tour.

Double Hook

Same spot and same time as yesterday but today a double hook which resulted in 2 salmon of 4 kg each, plus an undersized short after. I stopped fishing around noon as the wind was to much for serious trolling.
Tomorrow will be bait fish action again!

Yesterdays bait fish session gave 230 bleak in 4 hours.

2nd day fishing, 2 salmon

After a few days with to much wind and some gardening work I went fishing for the second time and caught 2 salmon from 5 and 3 kg. One came early in the morning, the other one in the late afternoon.
Tomorrow will be fishing again before the wind comes back.

2011 salmon season opened

Today was the opener of the 2011 salmon season. We launched the boat on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday had bad weather.
I caught 2 salmon, 1 x 4 kg and one wild salmon with approx. 7 kg, which I released. The water is still very cold with 2.3 degC only and the fish are not very active.
