The fishing season has seriously started now, and many guests reported in big pre-spawning pikes in the past 2 weeks. So, a pretty good start !
A few times a year we try to do a small fishing contest here, with some local anglers and good friends. This year we also had a few guys from Holland, staying at Edsleskogs Wärdshus, and good friends of mine, so we invited them to join us. It's a friendly contest, so more people=more fun. Here's a short report of a beautiful day !
Really great weather to be out on the water, but actually not the best circumstances for pike fishing. But, pike fishing is unpredictable, and in the first hour we received good reports from a few boats already, catching nice sized pikes.
After 14.30 the sun was hot, and the fishing slowed down for everybody, the pikes just did not want to strike any longer. So around 16.30 we quit the contest and count the results to decide the winner. But first the three best fishes of the day :
