North power

Went out today on my day off work to scout for upcoming guided trips this week. We've been having winds from north/north-east for 4-5 days now and this start to settle were to find the pikes at the moment. Winds striked hard today with squalls up to 17 m/s.

Fishing went well today and when I got back to Dragsö after a 7 hour fishing trip I could sum up 17 pikes with the top fish measuring a few centimeters on the wrong side of three digits. This fish as you can see on the picture was done with spawning and completely inhaled my Wolftail Jr.

Another great answer I got today was that pikes seemed to be okey with attacking bigger lures. Got two fish on a McTail adapted with bigtail. One measuring 86cm and the other one 84cm.

Most fish today were caught inside bays which had the wind from north pushing in. But, I also tried Hasslö in the outer part of the archipelago and caught a few out there as well. The boat ride to get there wasn't worth the effort though. Huuuuge waves!

Many guests will arrive to Dragsö tomorrow and a few groups on Saturday as well, including returing guests from Netherlands! Looking forward to this weekend!
