Lures for summer

I have started to buy few of these “jigs” for summer fishing. I will call them jigs as in english language there is no word for these. These lures are generally used when ice fishing and they are loosely translated “level pilk’s”

Here is a video demonstrating the lure, sorry for the annoying music and all. Please note video is NOT made by me 🙂

These jigs or lures are very good when fishing from a boat between bottom and surface. Almost like vertical jigging but without soft baits. The method is effective when fish are not in the bottom.

Second and third from the top are made by local commercial lure makers. Other three are made by “Hämy Lures” and they are made by hobbyist who makes lures as a hobby. Quality is very good.

We will see how these work during summer 2014.

First big apologies for not updating the blog earlier. I have been quite busy since summer due to new family member 🙂

Since last post I have bought a new boat. Previous bout was OK but not good enough for rough seas. Also this new boat has more space and it has bigger engine.

Boat has 115 HP Mercury 4-stroke engine and I have also installed Minn Kota Riptide 55 lbs bow mounted electric motor on it. Minn Kota has iPilot functionality which is awesome.

During the first trips we had a chance to try catching some sea trouts. I haven’t been chasing sea trouts very much earlier but now I will spend some time catching them in the future. My friend managed to catch one nice trout.

As soon weather warms up and the ice is gone new season is open. Hopefully this will happen in April.
