The seasons started

I actually caught my first fish on the seventh of january this year, that’s some kind of record! But then winter hit us finally with cold weather, sno and icing of the bays. But that lasted only just over a month and now most of my home waters are ice free so yesterday me and my oldest son was out again and we both caught small pikes in shallow waters. We also saw about 15-20 pikes on shallow waters, I estimated the biggest ones to be somewhere around 15-16 lbs! I don’t know if the breaking of the ice is some kind of signal for the pike to start migrating to shallow waters for spawning perhaps because there should be so many fish in shallow waters otherwise. There are still about 2 months until spawning should be at its peak!

It’s funny, every time I go out I usually start with trying a few new flies then perhaps something proven like green and gold and then if nothing works I put on red and white. And it’s remarkable how often that color get the fish going!

Hello, you missed me?

Okay, I am sorry. I’ve had long spells before where I have been quite lousy at updating this blog but this is probably an all time high. It is however not a coincidence that my latest blogpost was just a few weeks before the fishing season started for real here, because I have never fished as much as I have this year and 95% of my fishing has been in my home waters chasing that elusive brackish water Pikes that patrol the shoreline of the Baltic sea.

Even though there might be a few days left to fish in this season it is really coming to an end. And to summarize it has been both a good and a frustrating season. It’s been good because I have never caught so many pike during one season as I have this year, I have also gotten the opportunity to fish another water more frequently together with a friend who has a boat on a completely different spot than I have, which has allowed me to go to spots I couldn’t with my little boat.

It’s been frustrating due to the fact that despite all my efforts and all my days out I still have nothing really big to show for it. I’ve been in contact with a few really big ones, but not close to as many as last season where I got into a really bad period where I lost many 5-6 fish that all of them would have broken my current personal best pike on the fly. But I’ve still learned new things this season that I am gonna take with me into the next one that will improve me. I am well aware also that where I fish are not regarded big-pike area, it is the very outskirts of the worlds biggest archipelago and very elusive. But I have a goal and a dream and I will pursuit it.

I am gonna try and post more regularly from now on, especially now that we move into winter and there won’t be as much fishing. Here’s a few photos of me and some friends of mine from this past season for now, see you soon!

Pike bum


Fall pike fishing

Been out quite a few times lately with mixed results. What I have been getting are a whole lot more pikes per outing than before, but still missing the bigger ones. Tomorrow we’re going out to some big-pike-waters, hoping for the +100 cm one. Here’s some photos from lately.


Fall fishing with dry flies for grayling

I’ve been lousy to keep you up to date with what I am doing. You better friend me on Facebook if yo want more regular updates 🙂

Anyway, two weeks ago I went up north for a little fall trip fishing for grayling. It was so much fun. The fishing was mediocre but all else was fantastic! Just wanted to share with you some photos from it. Hope you like them!

Fish your fly all the way

Last weekend I had our annual pike fishing trip, more on that misfortune later. I’ve been bringing the video cam along my last few outings trying to catch a little pike fly fishing action. On this little clip you can see me doing a classic mistake, not fishing quite all the way in. On numerous occasions I’ve had Pike take the fly just by my feet and it always pays of to fish the fly right to the shore. You can see here that just as I lift the rod to cast again it looks like the fly gets stuck, well it gets stuck in the mouth of a nice pike. Naturally I didn’t hook it, and my reaction is a little late 🙂


Fishing on the 9th of April (Fishing day no 3)

So on monday I managed to get out on my second fishing during Easter. This time I had my entire family with me, all three of them. A good day with fishing, picnic with barbeque, rowin the boat and raising hell. That last part was mostly Wilmer who did because he was not entirely happy being out all day 🙂

We managed to catch one pike once more, but it is still way too cold in the water only three degrees celcius in the shallow bays. So hopefully warmer weather will come in soon making it warmer in the water which will give more pikes to come in.

No photos this time, will do better next time!
