The spring is here now, and the conditions
for saltwaterfishing was quite good today,
therefore I decided to go fishing for some Pollack.
I picked up the phone and called a
former colleague, my dutch friend
Like me, he really enjoy fishing,
and we made an appointment.
I drove out to his house at 10 AM,
he have a nice house about 45 minutes
drive west of Bergen City, out with
the islands by the coast.
Here he lives with his family,
and a five minutes walk from their house
there is the most amazing fishingspot.
Jan used his powerful surf-rod
this day, he do flyfishing
sometimes also, but cause it
was quite windy he did go
for the lures. I am a flyfisher so
I used my Burkheimers, the
790 Saltwater and the 990 saltwater.
Orvis Vortex(for the 990)
and Orvis Battenkill Large
Arbour(for the 790) is my standards
on these rods. Today I only used my
special Lite-Brite clousers tied with
a red ledeye, of course on Owner hooks.
The Pollack was very deep in the
water today and far from land,
so Jan got the biggest ones with
his surf-rod cause of the reach,
one of them about 11 lbs. I got
a few big ones also, the largest
I got on my flies weighted 6 lbs.
I also landed Saithes by the dozen,
all of them between 1 and 2 lbs.
Jan and me had a really great trip
with a lot of catch, have added
some photos from the trip
and our spot in this post, enjoy them.
My clousers worked perfectly today,
did not loose any of them,
and the fish really enjoyed them.
The fishing today was just awesome,
gonna repeat this as soon as possible:-)
