Along the coast of southern Sweden the seatrout season ends in mid-September. During the last weeks of the season it takes a lot of trips to get tuned in on the fishing, but it can be quite good and there’s a chance of some really big fish.
Einar Gjaldbæk and his son David Thormar from Kinetics Test Team had a tough time trying to find the fish this year. Both of them had several unsuccessful trips to Sweden but on Friday September 11th they finally succeeded. This day Einar had a really beautiful and strong fighting fish weighing 2.5 kilos and David caught a smaller one. The 2.5 kilo was caught on a Magic Minnow Sømmet in the color Pattegrisen (pink and white).
The day after Einar was back in Sweden for half a day of fishing. Once again he was using his Magic Minnow Sømmet inline lure, and this day the trout’s went crazy. In total he caught 9 trout’s but unfortunately no really big ones.
Sunday David came along again. His approach was to use a big Magic Minnow Kongetobis lure fished at slow speed in shallow water. This technique proved deadly to a beautiful 3.5 kilo trout, which turned out to be the biggest of the day. The same technique and lure also accounted for a 2.3 kilo trout. Even bigger fish were around that day and with a little luck Einar could have won the family competition. He was also using a Kongetobis when a big fish in excess of five kilos attacked. Instead of taking a run, the fish kept swimming towards Einar before jumping right in front of him. This maneuver is perhaps one of the best ways for a seatrout to get rid of a hook and this was exactly what happened. No monster trout for Einar, but what an experience!
Right now the seatrout fishing in southern Sweden is closed until 1st of January. If you have news on big fish caught using our tackle, lures or equipment. Don’t hesitate to send us a report and a picture: email@example.com
