Aland Islands perch fishing " />

Aland Islands fishing trip

This year, we came back to almost the same fishing spot as 2 years ago - the north western part of the Aland Islands. While last time, the area was swarming with pikes (including the very big ones), this time around the weather promoted perch fishing instead. In fact, the water was too cold for pikes and it would have been better to arrive to the islands 2 or 3 weeks later. Nevertheless, as you can see in the video below, the fishing trip was not a failure: catching dozens of 30cm perches every day is not such a common occurence after all.

Some lessons learned:

  1. It seems there are more chances for big pike with water temperatures above 12 degrees. This week, the water hardly ever reached 11 degrees and that's too cold. I remember catching most pikes in the past when the water temprature was around 14 degrees.
  1. When the water is cold and herring enters the warmer bays from the open sea, pikes prefer small baits. Large jerks proved to be useless while small (even 4cm) baits that we used for perch attracted several pikes, albeit mainly small ones.
  1. If you want to catch big pikes on cold days, use live bait. My friends who fished with live bait had perhaps fewer pikes but all in the range of 60-90cm, while my catch hardly exceeded 60cm.

Hello, Neat post. There is a problem with your website in web explorer,
could check this? IE nonetheless is the market
chief and a good portion of people will omit your great writing
because of this problem.

The blog is dead, they tell me. I've never been one to follow trends much, and here I am, late in February 2014, opening a blog. A scientist's blog, a chemistry blog. Why? I've ... porn, lesbian sex and on website:

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the net will be much more useful than ever before.
