May is approaching

Hi guys!

I know that many of you are waiting for this report from past weekend since a lot of you who are reading this blog will show up at Camp Dragsö Sportfishing in near future.

Well, where to begin? Last week we had north winds for the whole week and most days were sunny. Not the best conditions for big pikes really and that was shown in reports from our guests as well. We had a great mix of returning guests and new ones last weekend who also took the chance to go out with me as their guide on their first days. Most teams reported decent numbers from 10-40 pikes per day and boat but not many big ones. Top fish was caught by our friend and returning guest Jacob who fooled a 102cm fish.

Except for that report, I didn't here any other reports about big fish. A bunch just over 90cm but that's it. I think most teams did see big ones though but they were to shy to bite. Pikes seems to be very spread out at the moment. You can still find many inside the most shallow bays but they are hard to fool in sunlight and low winds. We've even caught pikes as far out in the archipelago as you can go where the temperature already reach 9 degrees.

Continuously, we will host a lot of new guests from Thursday and Saturday. All Masterboats are booked and pikes SHOULD be ready to dance any time now. I know that I've been saying that for like 10 days now. But for real, any time now!

Wind has finally turned to be south but it seems to be for just a couple of days. We'll see what this weekend will give us, but I have a good feeling about something BIG will come up any day now.

Stay tuned :)
