Getting better

Hi fellow readers!

Most of May has been a disappointing month for anglers visiting Karlskrona. It's been unusually cold and most days has been North/North-East winds. Not the favorite conditions for sure and pikes has for sure not been happy or eager to feed on our baits. May is normally a month when numbers can be great since pikes are feeding after spawning. This year however, not many days has offered good numbers. Many boats has reported between 1-5 pikes/day while as always a few boats finds areas where the pikes are active and numbers of 30 pikes in a day is reached. Still, those kind of reports has been rare for the whole month.

Many guided trips has been on my schedule lately. Unfortunately, many of these trips resulted in low numbers as well. Only a few trips got up to "normal" levels with between 15-28 pikes per day.

However, last days has been warmer and water temperature is now around 14 degrees in average and warmer in the bays. This is for sure positive and maybe fishing starts to get better now. Yesterday I was out for just three hours during a special event with clothing brand Didriksons. Me, Willy and Didriksons representatives Per & Ulf had a really good morning with 20 pikes caught. A lot of missed strikes and followers as well, in areas where there was basically no activity 10 days ago.

A lot more boats have now started to report between 20-30 pikes per day, some with even more. I say, FINALLY!

We still have some busy weeks before summer season starts for real. Hopefully fishing can continue to be good or even better during the last "spring" weeks. Actually, today we've had 25 degrees! The warmest day this year for sure.

And hey! Don't miss the chance to catch some herring or why not horn pike/"garfish". They are here in huge numbers at the moment but soon enough they will all be gone again, for this time.

Thank you for reading and hope to see you at Camp Dragsö Sportfishing in a near future!

May update!

May is finally here and as always this is a very busy month for us. Last weekend we were fully booked. We had 17 rental boats out on the water plus another 10-12 private boats. In addition to this, we also had some guided trips and you can understand that we had our schedule filled to its limits!

Weather has continued to be strange. During the last few days we've had several nights where air temperature dropped below zero again. Combined with this, we also had several days where day time offered all sorts of weather. Sparkling sun, wind squalls up to 18m/s, heavy rain, light rain, hail, small twisters... we had it all!

When it comes to results, I would say that you can for sure feel now that activity is slowly getting better. Pikes has now started to spread out from the bays and can now be found in most parts of the archipelago. Yesterday, I had a guided trip with two Swedish men. We managed to catch 18 pikes during the day and most of them was caught around islands. The biggest pike caught by our guests last weekend, at least of what I heard of, was 105cm.

Today we also welcomed Ivan to our crew. He spent a week at our camp some weeks ago but has now graduated from the Swedish Sportfishing Academy, ready to start work immediately! Make sure to say hi to him if you visit us!

Our on site restaurant has been facing some major renovation lately but will soon be ready to open up again. The original plan is to open for lunch at 20th of May while the restaurant will be fully renovated and done in mid June. I can assure you, it's going to be great!

Right now we have a little less than 20 anglers on site with many more to arrive in a few days. Still, a few weekends in May is still open for reservations. Normally, most weekends get fully booked early but this year we still have a few packages available during popular weeks and weekends. Don't miss out!
