First guided trip of autumn season

Hi guys,

So autumn season has started and yesterday I went out for a guided trip which was this seasons first session. Weather is still warm with approx 22-23 degrees in air and about 17-20 in the water. Yesterday was no exception and with low winds, sun and about -20cm lower water level, I didn't expect to much of activity.

Obviously I was proven wrong and during 4 hours we managed to catch 20 pikes on 4 guests and everyone in the boat seemed to have a good time. Plenty of strikes but the big ones stayed away this time. Best lures was Wolf Tail Jr and Relax 6''. Good start of autumn season!

Upcoming two days will be spent partly on the water with a good friend of mine. Weather is going to be a bit more rough upcoming days so maybe it's what's needed to catch a big fish.

Registration to Blekinge Pike Festival 2015 opened yesterday and during a few hours in the very night time. more than 200 anglers registered so it's for sure great interest for participating this year as well.

Hopefully to be back with a nice catch report later next week!
