Finally some action!

Hello fellow readers,

I've been out on guided fishing trips last two days with a nice group of guest from France. It's their first visit to Sweden for fishing and it seems like they enjoy their holiday a lot. Two 4h guided trips were booked in advance which now have increased their knowledge about our archipelago fishing for pikes.

As you might know already, fishing has been slow for almost two weeks now but finally it seems like the pikes are ready to eat again. Yesterday resulted in 11 pikes with top fish measuring 86cm. All of these fish had spawn already and were having prey fish in their mouths. All these fish caught around islands close to the bays in 0.5-2.5m of depth.

Today I experienced fishing to be almost the same as yesterday. We had approx 15 pikes up this morning with top fish of 85cm. All fish striked small lures and soft plastics. Blue/White, Red/White and herring colours works good at the moment. Big lures doesn't seem to catch their attention right now but will for sure work better soon as they start their hunt for herring soon.

More reports to come later this week.
