OrtÄlmhult, Älmhult, Sweden
Über mich: In 1984 my school arranged a fishing trip at a local lake near my home town of Taastrup Denmark. It was a brisk day in the fall and not a single fish was caught by anyone from school......but a bit further down the bank was a guy who was pulling fish out like it was the easiest thing on earth. One after the other. Not monsters but clearly he knew s...omething we didn’t. I just couldn’t put that out of my head and now; after more than 35 years of sports fishing and some 70 different species caught across 4 continents from Green- to Thailand; fishing is still the last thing I think about before falling asleep and the first thing I think about when I wake up. Admittedly, this might be an obsession, but there is nothing I don’t like about fishing. I like the preparation, the anticipation, the morning drive, the slow boat on a a rainy day, the bite, the fight, the release, the dinner and most importantly the contact with nature. I can even enjoy the day without catching...It's learning, and with fishing you never stop learning. I moved to Sweden in 2004 and still live here with my Swedish family. I have spent 14'ish years fishing the waters of this area and thus have a deep understanding of what works around here. I use a combination of all techniques from LiveScope and casting to trolling, dead bait and coarse fishing. My favourite local venues are Möckeln, Lagan and a couple of others that shall remain unmentioned. I have extensive experience in small vessel boating and fishing. I also have the Swedish "Fartygsbefäl" education as a coastal skipper. I also have a B.Sc. in agricultural science, M.Sc. in Biotechnology-Biology, Ph.D. in molecular biophysics and worked as a researcher in drug development for many years. I also run the scientific consulting and communications firm "KrintelConsult". I am fluent in English, Danish and Swedish and I speak some german too.
There is no denying it. Predator fishing is crazy good in this area. There are the big lakes and river systems with potential monsters in them. Then there are the smaller hidden venues and they, well they also have potential monsters in them.
I have ready made packages for lake Möckeln here. But my boats are on trailers and we can fish a wide array of venues. For bigger lakes like Möckeln we use the 5.5 m Kimple Adventure that takes up to 4 guests and for smaller venues we use the 4.5 m Gregor for 1 or 2 guests.
In targeting pike we usually cast rubber or hard lures using marine electronics to locate ares holding active fish. The aggressiveness of a pike charging your lure is an adrenaline rush second to nothing. I always have an eye on the Garmin livescope system and when a big fish comes into sight I will direct your casts towards it. As for targeting big zander we can also use the system to find big fish. A good old technique is also trolling big rubber lures. I sometimes combine this with dead-baiting as this often result nice bonus fish. I rarely do fly-fishing, but as a fly-fishing enthusiast you are more than welcome on my boats.
For zander, we use fishfinders for localisation and either traditional jigging and casting or we target big fish using the Garmin Livescope system often in combination with "coffee break trolling". In general, we can combine techniques and target species to fit your dreams.
