Long day scout

Went out yesterday on my day off work together with my friend Albin who works on our neighbor campsite Ronneby Havscamping. Since we both had the whole day off work, we decided to go for a longer trip and started out just before 1 p.m. and we stayed out until 10 p.m.

With good fishing results on my past trips during last week, expectations was high and we aimed to catch a meterpike during the day. With sunny weather and approx 4m/s winds, water was a bit more clear than past days but the pikes seemed to be active anyway. Within the first 30 minutes I had landed a 85cm and also a nice conditioned 93cm pike.

After these catches the fishing went down a bit and we struggled a bit to find good locations. We had many contacts during the day, including a lost estimated meter pike who just got its teeth on my tail, not the hooks. When we got back to Dragsö we could sum up a total of 10 pikes and the 93cm on top. It should be mentioned as well that we only used bigger lures +25cm and up to hopefully catch bigger fish.

Upcoming days we will receive rain and north winds so probably fishing will go down a bit for a few days now. The late part of June has been great so far though and I get reports several times a week of meter pikes beeing catched in the surrounding area of Karlskrona.

Stay well!
