Mid October update

Fall is here and nature is showing its pride with colourful leaves on all trees, birds migrating for warmer latitudes but most importantly, pikes are feeding!

It's the time of the year when most people are in "working mode" but still, for those with some days left to go fishing, this is a lovely time to do so. On regular week days you can be more or less alone on the water. Pikes are moving in to the shallow areas now to feed and find their home for the next half year or so. Temperatures is still very comfortable with 10-13 in day time and about 6-9 degrees in the night.

Last few weeks we've had high water level and many days with north winds. For our area, this equals with very clear water in most of the archipelago and sometimes more tricky fishing. As always some boats have difficulties finding the keys for success, while others catch good numbers. Results last couple of weeks has variated between 3-50 pikes per day and boat.

Last week I had a couple of guide trips on my schedule with returning guests. First day we caught 24 pikes, while second day resulted in 18 pikes. Unfortunately, a nice fish over the three digits in size was lost in very shallow water close to the boat. Next time, we get her all the way to the net!

Yesterday I spent my day off work on the water together with our former colleague Willy. Or well, he still do some days on the camp but since he started his studies earlier this year, unfortunately these days are easy to count. Anyway, we had fantastic fishing yesterday! 38 pikes was caught and almost half of them measured well above +80cm in size, with bigger ones caught to. In some areas, like the one we stayed in yesterday, pikes are getting fat and are very strong to fight. 

This week we will welcome a total of 11 fishing groups and in the beginning of next week my colleague Ivan will be busy. Together with students from the Swedish Sportfishing academy they will fish and guide during the annual ABU pike camp for youngsters for several days. 

It's going to be some nice upcoming weeks and we have rental boats available until the end of November. Come and enjoy the archipelago of Karlskrona :-)

Blekinge Pike Festival and season continues!

October is here and we've got a couple of more weeks where our boats are more or less fully booked. Later in October we still have availability for fishing packages, day rentals of boats, guided trips etc. And to be honest, I believe fishing is just getting better when temperatures drops more.

Last weekend the annual pike fishing competition Blekinge Pike Festival was arranged. This year there was also a team competition where 67 teams competed together with hundreds of individual competitors. I teamed up with my friends Martin & Jörgen in Team Ram Mounts Nordic. Conditions were tough but fortunately our plan worked out pretty good and we ended up in 2nd place. We were in the lead 3/4th of the competition but came out six centimeters short in the end. Our former colleague Willy also did well and his team Karlskronafiske ended up in third place. Good results!

The biggest pike caught in the competition was 110cm but only two pikes over the 100+ margin was reported over two days so obviously fishing was difficult for everyone.

In the last few weeks I've had many guided trips on my schedule. Half day, whole days.. Sunny, windy, cloudy, cold, hot, low water, high water... We've experienced it all over the last few weeks. Mostly, we've had quite good results. This week I've been out Monday with one guest and had 26 pikes in the boat in a full day (8hrs) trip. Tuesday gave 19 pikes in a full day with two guests.

This weekend we'll have all our boats out on the water with guests coming from Sweden, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Netherlands, Ukraine and Germany.
