Catch reports close to record amounts!

With Saturday in our calendars, new guests will arrive to Dragsö today and a few groups also left us during the morning. One of the groups leaving today was multiple time returning guests from Belgium, Luc and his friends. They've been here for a week now and managed to catch 250 pikes in 6 fishing days, 3 persons. Two meter pikes was caught by them in the surrounding area of Dragsö.

I asked for their keys of success since they caught good amounts of pikes. They concentrated their fishing to the coast line and into bays already and obviously this was a good choise! These lads have been using Cannibal Shads with great success and firetiger was the colour to trust this week.

Overall fishing is variating day by day since weather and wind conditions variates from day to day. A couple of days ago we had low wind and rain all day. Personally I experienced fishing to be good in this condition. The next day we had no winds turning from north to east during the day and sunny weather.. Pikes seem to be on feeding mode anyway but a little harder to find. Most boats reports about 15-40 caught pikes a day.

I've been having two guided fishing trips during the week with variating results. One thing is for sure, guided trips is the peak with this job. The feelings when guests catch nice sized pikes is hard to describe. Many anglers feel nothing but jealous when others succeed in fishing but thats not even close to what I feel. I'm glad to join these nice moments when other succeed, and I really wish all my guests the best when out there on the water.

More reports to follow in the beginning of next week and hopefully we will receive some pictures from our guests with big pikes!
