September fun

Hi guys!

Another weekend is coming up and I would say that this is when the fishing season really starts. Last couple of weeks we've been visited by several angling groups but this weekend is the first when many guests are coming for fishing holidays. Four groups arrived today, all from Sweden, while seven more fishing groups will arrive on Saturday and Sunday.

Weather is still warm for being September. 20-24 degrees most days and mostly low winds. Maybe not the best conditions for fishing but actually some days now offer good fishing. Several boats reports about 20 pikes or more in the boat in one day while others experience some difficulties with finding the fish.

Yesterday I went out with Philip for a day of pike fishing. Morning started out quite OK with a 94cm pike caught early on a Beastly Tail in motoroil from Renz-Stein Lures. Low winds made our drifts a bit slow in the bay but we know that big fish is moving in the area so we spent several hours in the first bay. Before lunch we were up to 14 pikes and a nice 87cm fish was caught in the same area before we continued to new spots. To be honest, fishing was slow in the afternoon and we struggled to find pikes willing to bite.

We ended up about 15:30 in the afternoon with 16 pikes in total, most of them caught on Beastly tail in variating sizes.

Upcoming days will be spent on the water since I will go out with two different returning groups tomorrow for guided trips. Saturday is also a full day on the water on guided trip with a Swedish group. To end up this weekend, one more half day guided trip on Sunday is on my schedule. Most probably I won't have time to give another update until the beginning of next week, but then I'll be back with catch reports and hopefully some nice pictures!
