Stenbrottet near Hällekis

We decided to take a two days fishing trip to Hällekis near to Vänern. Vänern is the biggest lake in Sweden but this time we went to smaller artificial lake called Stenbrottet for catching salmon.

I had very high expectations from this trip but unfortunately after two days of non stop fishing we managed to catch only three salmons.

Quite a busy day at Göta Kanal at the locks from Berg. Many boats coming from the Roxen lake are waiting to pass the locks.

Fishing for Barracuda in Curaçao

Finally out on the sea and fishing for tuna and barracuda
The only optimistic guy on the boat was captain Jerry Vollebregt

Finally at the end of the day, after I lost all my hope, just when approaching the pier a barracuda attacked the lure and get hooked.

Curaçao Blue

Every fishing story needs a good scenery. The water, the breeze, the local people are part of the fishing experience. This is why a fishing day without any catch still be a wonderful day. This year we decided to spend our vacation in a little quiet piece of paradise located on the north-west side of the Curaçao. This beautiful and serene Caribbean island located near to Venezuela features crystalline waters, gorgeous white-sand beaches and a culture all its own with wonderful and friendly local people. In such a place where the sea is always blue, the air is always warm and the opportunities to experience interaction with the marine life are always endless.

Searching for new places

We were decided to search for new fishing places and we went on the other side of the lake near to a place called Kvarntorp.

It was not a very successful day mostly because it was raining all the day. We tried to fish for pike with small live fish but catching a small bite fish it was almost impossible. In the evening somehow we manage to catch a small pike which was not very impressive.

The place was looking promising and we decided to come back for more tomorrow…..
