After a strange and relative soft winter, spring has arrived very early now. Of course anything can happen, it's still only March. But at the moment it does not seem to be likely that the winter will return in a serious way.
So that means we already started preparing our boats and equipment for the fishing season. And looking at the forecast for next week, i'm planning some fishing myself also, before the busy times start :-)
For our customers, I truly hope the weather and the fishing will be as good as last year !
And to make sure our guests will have a good time here, we do the best we can to provide them with the very best and comfortable accomodations, services, advice, and very important : Reliable, well equipped fishing boats !
So, for this season, we ordered several new boats !!
In a few weeks they will be ready and delivered, but because it seems we have an early start of the fishing season, we probably "open up" earlier. So here's already a first impression of the brand new boats !
They are all equipped with 2014 models 10 HP Honda 4-stroke engines, Minn-kota electric engines, and the newest Garmin fishfinders, with normal sonar but also with downscan !
The shape of the boats make them very stable and also pretty fast, depending on the load they can reach speeds up to 40 km/h .
The construction of the boats makes them unsinkable, so they are also very safe to use on the bigger and sometimes very rocky waters here. Of course we always provide live vests with them. But safety is most in your own hands, so be carefull out there.
For the other rental boats we already had : We changed all the engines for brand new ones also. Simply because we want you to be out there with reliable engines, at any time, and in any circumstances.
This brings our "fleet" up to 7 boats now, suitable for the different needs of our customers, and for various types of fishing.
My thanks to Marin&Fritid in Åmål for great service and coöperation, and also many thanks to CWC AB for supporting us with beautiful boat decorations !
Of course we have lot's of great information and paper maps available, and for most fishermen they still do well.
But we live in a digital world :-)
So the next logical step was to invest in a few portable and waterproof screens, equipped with GPS and Navionics Sea Map software. It provides you detailed maps with depths, routes, rocks and shallow area's and more.
We wish you all a very nice and happy fishing season. We are ready for it !
