Pikesafari #4 2013

Yesterday we runned our fourth pikesafari of the year and this time we was fully booked, at least the day before. Unfortunately, we received a few late cancellations this time as well but still we got 36 anglers in total yesterday.

With 9 boats we had to choose a bit bigger areas so everyone could fit and not feel trapped in their surroundings by other boats. Since we also had rather tough winds we was even more limited in possible fishing locations. So after some discussion with David we decided to go to the area around Ljungskär/Västra mark just north of Dragsö.

In my boat this evening I had two Swedish guests who knows how the pikesafaris work out since they've been following several times before. Following was also a Danish guest who followed for his first time. Luckily, all of us in the boat managed to catch pike this time and so was the case for several boats this evening.

Since I obviously have a thing for tailbaits at the moment, I continued with these even this time. This was a lucky move since a pike of 101cm decided to take a blue/white Svartzonker Mctail. A few smaller individualls was caught at the same site before we went to next area.

After a bit more than an hour we went to the area between Svinön and Ramsö a bit west of Dragsö. The later in the evening we got, wind was decreasing and finally we had a very nice evening and sunset.

Back at Dragsö we could sum up a total of 35 pikes and also 5 perch. My 101cm was by far the longest pike so many small ones was interested this evening.

Next week we expect to be fully booked again so if you find our pike safaris interesting you should make your reservation as soon as possible. At the moment we have 6 boats booked already so 4 more to fill!

Have a nice & fishy weekend!
