Sea trout fishing season is officially open. I managed to hook nice little over 40 cm sea trout. I also had one monster on for few minutes but unfortunately it released itself when the fish jumped in the air. I managed to measure and weigh it “really well” in the air so I would say it was 2.5-3 kg sea trout. The spot has been producing very well throughout the season. One of my friends landed nice 62 cm / ~3 kg fish from the same spot.

Again we spent whole Saturday fishing some sea trouts. This time I managed to land my personal best. We were fishing the same spot as earlier and this time I landed one nice 49 cm trout and also 2.2 kg / 59 cm. Oh boy that fish was nice.  I hooked smaller 49 cm fish with red and black Forelli lure. Second one I hooked with a black leech casted with Bombette/Bombarda weight which is commonly used in Denmark when fishing some sea trouts. With bombette you can reel in the rig and fly more slower than with a lure.

My friend hooked total 6 fishes with a fly. Fly was more effective than lure which made me use bombette rig. All fish were C & R.

We had some nice sea trout (sea run trout) fishing last saturday. Our plan was to fish white fish and perhaps do some sea trout fishing as well. We were fishing white fish from my boat when my friend spotted a feeding sea trout just close by. He landed a nice cast just near the sport and fish was on! After he landed a nice 45 cm sea trout we decided to concentrate on sea trout fishing. My friend managed to land six nice sea trouts and I managed to land only one which was nice 49 cm. All the fishes were C & R.

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.

Today was official fishing season opening day for me. I was planning to go and try to catch some whitefish since it is the best time of the year to catch them. Whitefish fishing in the spring time is basically “coarse fishing” with a worm bait and spinning rod. Whitefish season starts just after the ice melts on the shores. Whitefish tend to come close to the shore when they are feeding with Red-gilled mud worms (Marenzelleria viridis) and that time is the best time to catch them.

Basically the best substitute for red-gilled mudworm is normal “earth worm” (Lumbricus terrestris).

Fishing itself is just waiting for a catch and enjoying the sunny weather.  Whitefish fishing is quite popular so very often best places are occupied by other fishermen.

Whitefish season lasts few weeks until the water temperature is too high and whitefish goes back to deeper waters.

When waiting for a catch there is some spare time to try some sea trout as well. Sea trouts are coming after the same red-gilled mud worms and small bait fish in spring time. Sea trout population here in Finland is not in very good shape but few sea trouts are catched every year on these same shores.

Usually I fish with a bombette/bombarda float and a fly.

Now it is just waiting to get my boat on the water.  It shouldn’t take more than three weeks now…lets keep fingers crossed and lets hope for some warm weathers since almost all docks are still in ice.
