Wow! November 13th was THE day!
I visited a big fish water for float-trolling that day. The first four hours passed without the slightest sign of a fish. At quarter past one a screaming break indicated fish action. It did not take long to realize that this was the fish I was waiting for. The pike measured 117 cm and the scales showed 12.3 kilos – mission accomplished!


Two hours later I saw my left paravan moving and the rod tip indicated another take. I striked instantly, followed by an unpleasant cracking sound. First time ever breaking a rod and I was into a good fish again. Pike no. 2 was smaller and netted after a quick fight. Admittedly 107 cm and 8.1 kilos were not bad either.

October full moon

No big autumn session this year but I managed to fish around the october full moon. The past two years the fishing around full moon i late autumn had been of great success. This year I caugt quite many fish but the biggest measured just 99cm. Wind from the north and sunshine slowed fishing down and destroyed my plans.
The last ten days were warm with plus temperatures even at night. Water temperature in the small lakes is currently at around 6 degrees and the big lakes still have 8-9 degrees.
Float trolling has so far delivered a few fish but the big one for this autumn is still missing.
