40lb Salmon (Compilation video from Sweden)

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I've watched and enjoyed shows like the Salmon Showdown and thought that I must get into some Great Lakes forum and learn some more. This post however shows a 10 minutes compilation videon from our salmon fishing outside Stockholm in Sweden, June 2014. Some speech is in swedish though. A special kind of fishing on migrating salmon with a really high average weight (roughly 20lb) but few numbers. A salmon a day is good!

Top fish in the video is 18,4kg/40lb 9 ounces i think.

So, not a Great lakes video but always nice with some perspective and learn some more. Thats why I'm here! =)

Nice video, love to hear the lines screaming this time of year. I don't speak Swedish, but I bet I still can guess what you're saying when you have one on at the back of the boat.

Cool! Are all 6 of the poles at the stern of the boat hooked to those 2 down riggers?

Yes, and it's 7 rods most of the time I think. (Spare rod do no good in the cabin...) No problem really. Stacked 10 feet apart and with about 8 feet difference in length. More than 8 feet increases the risk of tangle when the fish strikes.

Standard in the Baltic is to stack 6 downrigger rods on a pair of downriggers.

Nice video guys, thanks for sharing. I wish we had a 20 lb average!

That's what makes it worth the wait. So few salmons but your heart takes an extra beat every time you hear that clicker take off... Down outside southern Sweden there's a fishing more like yours in style and weight as the salmon live and feed down there.
