Hi guys!

Time for another update. Thursday is here and time for new anglers to come. This week we're having fishing guests from Sweden, Poland, Slovakia, France, Germany, Netherlands and Denmark. Some of them are multiple time returning guests while other are here for their very first time.

To be honest, fishing has not been great during the past ten days or so. I think the main reason is because of weather circumstances. Lately, weather has been more like how it normally is in the end of June, rather than mid May weather. Warm nights and approx 20-25 degrees in the air, combined with more or less only sunny days and low winds, is not really preferable for pike fishing. Water temperature in the bays is now already up to 18-19 degrees which is a lot higher than last year at the same week.

Some decent pikes has been caught anyway by our guests. I would actually say that more big fish has been caught by our guests this spring than last year, but maybe numbers is a little lower overall. Below the text you can see several pictures of pikes caught last week or this week. Nice ones!!

Oh, and by the way. I have totally forgot to mention that we bought ourselves one more new Master500 boat with 40hp engine a little less than two weeks ago. This to be able to have one more reserve boat in case of any of our other booked boats breaks down for some reason. Good service huh?!

My upcoming days will be spent on the water since Friday, Saturday and Sunday is guided trip days. Hopefully we can manage to find some nice and wild pikes. A good thing with the fishing now is that most pikes are extremely strong fighters, so even the smaller pikes offer nice action.

Karlskrona was announced to be the sunniest city in Sweden last year. It wouldn't surprise me if that would be the case this year to because it feels like every day now is nothing else but sun sun sun. Nice for sunbathing, but I wouldn't complain if there would be a few days with some strong winds and clouds :)

Until next time, take care and have a fishy weekend!
