Late March race

A new week is here and our first fishing guests of season 2014 has already left us after a few days of fishing during the weekend. In my opinion, conditions were great for spring fishing since we had about 5-8m/s winds mostly from S/SW. Cloudy on Saturday and a bit more sunny on Sunday.

Results variated a lot where a few boats managed to catch +40 pikes on Saturday but without any really big ones. Reports from skilled anglers in town told me that a few monsters was caught though. Two pikes above +10kg and at least 3 above +8kg (all around or over 100cm) was caught and probably a few more that I yet haven't heard of. Great weekend!

Me myself experienced that pikes was caught on most locations but personally I didn't find any monsters. I did see a meter+ pike that followed all the to the boat, but the fish was to cleaver to be caught this time. A really fat pike of approx 80cm decided to hook herself into her back with my Buster Jerk. Imagine the pressure that's created when a pike of that size is fighting from its side instead of straight towards you. Like towing a monster! Unfortunately it wasn't a monster but hopefully a bigger one will see the inside of my boat next trip!

Almost every day now we receive new fishing reservations and it's really nice to have such an interest in the pike fishing business. For sure it's going to be a great spring at Camp Dragsö Sportfishing.

Fishing report 20/3

Went out yesterday and the day before yesterday for just an hour of fishing after work. Water levels are back to normal or even a little higher than normal. Just a couple of days before my arrival to Dragsö last Sunday the water levels were down to 40cm below normal. So with this fact in mind I knew that fishing was going to be a bit tough. With just one hour before sunset I decided to stay close to Dragsö and chose some bays that looked promising...

Well to be honest I didn't fish that good and struggled with finding good speed and weight on my lures. Costa Rica and surface baits with insane speed is slightly different from spring pike fishing, that's for sure! First day and first hour resulted in two small pikes around 65cm, both of them caught on Mouse "jerk/spinn fly" in pike colour.

Second day didn't go much better and just two pikes wanted to bite this time as well. One on Big Mcrubber in Blue/Pearl colour and the other one on a Big Mcrubber in Black/Pearl colour with a "twist" of Spike it colour blue.

Our first guests arrives tomorrow and will fish until Sunday. 4 boats will be out from our Camp and me myself will spend most of the bright hours on the water this weekend so hopefully I will have some nice catch reports on Sunday evening. Forecast looks promising since we've been having SW winds for several days now and expect to get SW to W winds of 5-8 m/s this weekend.

Until then, keep your hooks wet and stay tuned!

Mid March update

Hi there,

Finally the time is here. I'm back at Camp Dragsö for a new season of fishing and what a welcome I got yesterday when I drove through the city of Karlskrona. No winds, open water, sunny and happy people along the streets enjoying the first really bright and spring alike days of the year.

Today is quite different though since winds reach above 20m/s in squalls. A good day to stay in the office! It feels nice to be back and our first guests to arrive already on Friday. As I mentioned in my previous post we do have some news for this year and one of them is new engines on 3 of our boats. These are right now beeing mounted on boats and will hopefully be in the water before the weekend.

Since I'm back in business again posts will be coming more often from now with latest fishing reports, what's happening on the camp and much more. Gosh it feels great that ice is far gone already. Such a difference from last year when we still had 15cm thick ice and snow on the roads. At this point the local fishermans in the city of Karlskrona has already been out fishing for weeks and the reports, they are really promising!

More to come so stay updated!

Best regards,

Daniel Wickman
