Autumn season has started!

Hi guys!

Since fishing season is here by now, posts will be coming more regularly. Our first guests of autumn season has already left and new ones to come soon. In July I experienced fishing to be quite hard with high water temps and vegetation in abundance. Today, Thursday 14th, we're having 20 degrees in the bay of Dragsö. From now on temperatures will only drop for every week and fishing will be better and better the further in autumn we come.

I had two days of work earlier this week and tried my luck both days. Last Sunday I went out with a friend of mine. We caught 16 pikes within a half day with a top fish of 107cm! A couple of more pikes just under 90cm also experienced a day above the surface. This day we had our best results far out in the archipelago where the water was rather clear. In middle archipelago and close to shore water is still a bit coloured from algae blooms in July so we for sure experienced fishing to be harder there. It should be mentioned though, the biggie was caught very close to shore in 2m of water on a 40cm Real Eel.

Monday I tried to fish mid day with good results. 16 pikes myself and most fish measured above 80cm so good average size. Most fish was caught on SZ McTail adapted with bigtail, McRubber Jr in Motoroil colour and also Relax Kopyto 6'' in Motoroil. This day longest pike measured 95cm.

Other fishing teams in town also reports about good fishing and several meter+ pikes last two weeks has been reported. A great start of autumn season!

When it comes to booking situation we still have availability all weeks this autumn but soon to be fully booked in week 36 and 39. If you plan a fishing trip this autumn it's about time to make up your minds about dates soon to avoid disappointments. A few alternatives left for Blekinge Pike Festival as well.

Very soon a special offer will be posted on Facebook for November fishing this season. Keep your eyes open!
