Hi from Dalsland !
Still ice and much snow here at the time of writing, but the first signs of spring arrived, so hopefully soon the winter says goodbye. Time for a short report about the great icefishing season we had here at Sportfishing Dalsland !
Early Januari the temperatures suddenly dropped down here to -25 and lower ! So it only took a short while for the lakes to freeze down, and we could finally enter the ice and start drilling !
The weather conditions were quickly changing, so we had a lot of rain, high winds, but luckely also a bright sunny day as we see them often during the winter in Dalsland.
Because of the weather in the days before, the safety reasons and the rules, we were a bit limited in the choice of lakes and fishing spots. The fishing therefore was not so easy, also because the fish get's really suspicious with about 25 people moving around on the ice .....but the fun factor was the most important in this competition.
And nevertheless, a few beautiful pikes, perches and many trouts came up ! And we had great fun in the evenings, as you can see on the pictures below. So overall it was a very succesful event, everybody enjoyed, and I'm already looking forward to the next episode ! :-)
It feels like we had a long period of icefishing, but actually, it was only 2 months ago since we started it. But like i said, icefishing can be pretty intensive, so it feels much longer :-)
But now it's really time to quit, soon we start to prepare boats and houses, because spring arrives soon now in beautiful Dalsland !
We caught so many beautiful fish, and most important, we had a lot of fun together. Many thanks to everybody who was a part of that !!!
