  1. http://www.fiskeguidning.se/fiskeguidning/default.asp?id=89&language=sv#SlutrapportfrånLaxcupNynäshamn Some pics from the competition. Every competition have their own rules, this competition have some rules that are common, every team must have a VHF-radio with a certain channel so everyone can be notified, also every team must take a tag every morning and give it back when they return to the harbour every evening. Maximum 10 rods per boat and 6 salmons per day (never happened that someone caught that many on a day during this competition), gaff is banned, captain of the boat must be at least 18 years old, speed limit when sailing out and home at 7 knots. Fishing methods is mainly spoons, mixed with some plugs like Tomic, some fish with deadbaitfish but it´s not so common in the Baltic sea, more common in the big lakes of Vänern and Vättern.
  2. Today a 3-day salmon competition ended just south of the capital Stockholm in the Baltic sea, 58 salmons caught by 36 boat of total 49 boats caught salmon. Biggest catch was a 17,8 kilo (39 pounds?), winning team had 4 salmons total weight 38 kilo. Outside competition further north in the Stockholm archipelago around an island called Singö 54 salmons was caught on saturday, don´t know how many boats was involved nor the biggest salmon. These salmons are mainly immigrating fish whom swim north to spoon in their native rivers.
  3. 6 feet Rozenmeijer rod and tuned 5500 Ambassadeur. Not far from the location the IGFA alltackle record for Tarpoon is caught.
  4. Some people use it here for atlantic salmon, but not many. Thx for the ridgeback rattle links, oddlooking to say the least?
  5. Depends if you are in love with your 20$ rod and it´s not made anymore. Last summer during carpfishing I saw one of the Brits rod flying into the water during a carp took the popup bait, gone forever, cheap rod but his favorite, of course not for sale anymore. He wasn´t pleased with the young brat whom thought he secured the rod.
  6. One advantage fiberglass rod holders would be that it´s not as cold as metal when you fish in cold weather. Lake Vänern in Sweden during winter and holding onto metal, no thank you.
  7. One of my favorites are a Swedish plug named Vicke, 3/4 ounce is the weight I use http://www.sportfiskeguiden.se/index.php?cPath=64_65_66
  8. I ordered Tica Seaspirit SS348LC, it´s counting in meters. Anyone else tried it out?
  9. Kuusamo spoons are used here in Sweden too, but mainly for northern pike. Sorry for hijacking the thread. OT, see some rapala plugs sure the work fine for salmon/trout, the jointed will be best ones for slower speeds.
  10. People here that uses lines like fireline or powerpro (which is very slippery) when they floatfish with livebait while using gliding float uses strings of wool as stopper knot, it got good grip on the line. I reckon it could be worth testing, http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-woolcotton.htm
  11. I forgot to add, if you looking for an english speaking saltwater fishing forum (mainly europe and africa) I recommend www.worldseafishing.com
  12. Only used gulp worm for saltwater fishing for atlantic halibut, a significant difference, you bait you 3/4 jigg with them.
  13. OK, so the iceburgs could be used as givaways where there´s banks to fish around, did you have any seacharts of the area and where the accurate?
  14. Aha, so jigging isn´t that active when you fish from the ice? Always learn something...
