As told in the first week of Juli i travelled to Holland to finally get my new boat . The building process took a little longer then expected, but after all it was worth waiting. It's my own interior design, just how i wanted it. Here are some pics and details :
The first 3 fishing trips of Juli were absolutely nice. No monster fish, but with an average of 10 pretty big and strong pikes a day, i'm very satisfied in this time of the year.
Then our friends Pascal and Sandra visited us, and we took some holidays together, and had a great time with our families. So we did not really do a lot of fishing this month. But, sometimes you HAVE to go, and during a short evening trip I made with Sandra, we lost a nice one, but were rewarded with this beautiful colored one.
The first trip was fun, but a disaster when it came to the fishing itself. Actually, it was my first day this season that I did not manage to catch any pike at all.... But, that's fishing also. And we had some nice perches instead, so it was not so bad after all.
But the next days, they were really great, the fishing was HOT !! The first day we had 2 guys from Holland, Merk and Daniel, actually no fisherman, but they just wanted to experience how it is to be out there on the beautiful lakes and catch a few nice ones.
After a few beautiful 90 + pikes for Daniel, we got a massive strike, and after measurement Merk's first pike ever caught turned out to be a nice 115 cm lady !!
He looks a little bit scared, but he managed very well and did the job. And I think he understands the great feeling of pike fishing now :-)
Beautiful to see the next generation of anglers coming up and enjoy fishing already at a young age :-)
So, worth to mention that there is much more to explore in Dalsland, then fishing only. See more about it on our website www.dalslandholidays.com .
But today it was a big change, and we said hello to a 102 and a 106 pike ! So it seems they start feeding again. Also got some positive reports from Johannes and his friends, our returning guests from Germany. They had some nice pikes and lot's of big perches. They will send in their pictures later, so more about that in the next blog.
So July was hot, and the fishing was on and off, but also really hot some days. Looking back, i think overall it was a great month, and worth to be out on the lakes !
Now we slowly prepare for autumn fishing, it will be there soon and i have the feeling it's going to be good.
I hope all our guests enjoyed their holidays here, and the fishing trips. Thanks again, and welcome back @Sportfishing Dalsland !
