Varmdö; 29th May 2008

3lb. 9oz. Bream

2lb 8oz. Bream

Jack Pike


A new location today out on Varmdö, and considering the weather it went really, really well. Fished from 1pm until 5.00pm in blazing sunshine in a dificult strong wind, far from ideal conditions. The worm turned up the goods today, with 95% of fish falling to one legered rig. Lots of Perch to around 8oz. caught, which is always nice, these came throughout the day. The only trigger period of note was a Moon Set at 1.30pm and sure enough at 1.25pm my rod was taken from the rest by a good Bream of 3lb 9oz., this fish fighting really well and had me thinking it was a good Perch before it appeared on the surface. This was followed ten minutes later by a 2lb 8oz. fish that didn't fight at all! It was back to Perch then, alang with a couple of Roach and skimmer Bream before my livebait slid off at the death, though just a small jack Pike turned out to be the culprit. A great few hours angling which gave me a total of 5 points in all. Really impressed by the fishing and was told of very big Perch in the area, as well as very big Pike and Zander too. The Bream fishing could be exceptional too if done properly. The whole general area is well worth some attention and has huge potential, with a huge amount of water that could be covered, all of this close to the city....
Also today Tom Summers had a jack Pike from the lake by his land to claim a single point.
Weather; Sunny, 24 Degress, Gusty. f4-5 Wind, South Westerly.
