Our first trip was a short one, spend some time on preparing the gear and to learn to know the new Lund boat. And of course do some fishing :-)
We enjoyed the beautiful Dalsland spring weather, and soon the first meter + pikes and a few smaller ones were a fact ! Tommie was out there also, fishing for multiple days with some friends, and they caught many big ones with a top of 11,5 kg !
So, Tommie and me did a few hours fishing the day before to adjust the equipment, try a few new spots, and locate some fish. Because it's a huge area, and they are still very spread out these days. But soon we found them, and again we caught a few over the magic line, and well-feed ! Many different lures and colors perform well these days, but a slow fished Westin Shad Teez 27 cm worked the best for us, and brought us the most bigger fish.
Our guests and we experienced a few crazy days in row. Fat pre-spawners were caught in every boat, and for every angler. Many 10 kg + meter pikes, double strikes, and PR's for some. Total mayhem...... But I think pictures say more then words. Enjoy !!! (Click pictures to enlarge)
And 31 fish were over the magic meter line ! Total madness, and...... one more day to go ! :-)
So, really hot fishing days now. If the circumstances don't change too much, I hope it lasts for a bit longer. But, it can also change quickly, soon it's spawning time. Pike Fishing is never the same, and that makes it so much fun. So, we will see what happens in the coming weeks :-)
One more fishing day to come, and then back to business. Soon more new Lund and Linder boats arrive, very happy with the great service from Lund Boats and Marin Fritid. I hope our guests will have a lot of fun with them. I will post some more details when they are here.
Much to prepare now, busy times are coming up, and we want the best for all our guests !
