It has now been a little rain in the fishery due. sportfishing trade show and other fun prioritized before. But this weekend, it was again time to fix a couple of glacial pike. This weekend was planned long. I and three other talented anglers in Norrbotten could thus make a decent bet on big pike. The last weekend in March would be the weekend when all could.
Clock 04:00 calling my alarm clock and not long after I sit in the car. We converge at the fishing ground and run a little short tactics snack before deploying our rods. When Marten puts out a rod chop it directly, but he misses unfortunately the fish. Delay, however not too long before Pike's there again. A sexkilos pike became the day's first fish caught. Helt okej start, roughly as expected might. But then we went to a really tough day to meet.
A moment later shed it on one of my rods, which means I may be second in today's rotation. The fish stands still when I get there and will not go away. I decide to bust mothugget yet. Completely dead stop, it was, but as soon as the fish was gone. Felt very unnecessary. Hard to tell how big the fish was, but guessing at a better fish…
It feels like it takes infinite time to next trap, but it does not so much. I am quickly on the scene and insert mothugget on a fish swimming slowly. Feels quite heavy in mothugget, but then follows the fish only with, for abject FLOUNDER. Both I and the others guess it is a small fish. Sometimes you have to settle for these small glacial pike. But then I see a giant fish roll under the hole in the clear water. I say to the others that are on the way “This is great!”. Marten, Henke and Mats just think I'm rambling, considering the small sprattel that fish represent. When Henke sees gäddskallen below the hole so even realize he how big the fish are. I gets all weak in the knees and my legs shaking. Quite seriously, shaking them! Henke landing the fish and we realize pretty quickly that it concerns a pike well over 10. When we measure the fish to 114 cm I understand directly to the case of a potentially personal best and reg. Pike is extremely coarse and thick. A really good feeling spreading in my body when the scale shows 11,9 kilos and I have beaten my personal best with two pound. Inget reg, but I do not care about so much at this time. I might as well have quit fishing and stopped writing now, but why not tell the rest of the day.
The day did not end here. While we weighed and photographed this magnificent lady so ran Mats off on a fold and caught a pike between 5 and 6 kilo. Such fish are easily forgotten days like these.
A moment later, it Henkes's turn to run. I myself, unfortunately, was not in place when he sat there mothugget, but it was certainly something I missed. Was told later that the fish stood still and when Henke sat there mothugget had taken across state. They could not describe how heavy it was. As to do with opposition in a log. A half second later, the fish is gone. There was nothing wrong with mothugget or so, but the hook had been wrapped around the leader and put in the wrong hole. Hard to hook then. Henke gush to this day over how big the fish was. He still had time to catch a few glacial pike in his day.
A little while later he got another chance, in the same hole as I missed a fish. Also this time the good fish in mothugget. Quick drill and we can conclude that even Henke got to catch a 10+ Today fish.
We like glacial pikes over 10
Marten contrast, he does not have the same fluency and may later hooking a small gig. As I. After that the day was over. Do not know if I should add so much more than that we had a crazy good day on the ice. Two glacial pike above 10, one of which I had capture and nowadays call my new personal best. This is most likely my best glacial passport. Feel free to read Mats rader if current fishing, or why not Henkes interpretation of fishing.
