Today we went out to the spot where we had good fishing on tuesday, but conditions had changed. We didn't find the big amount of baitfish, but the warmer water was still around and we found some smaller scholls of baitfish to hang around. We managed to catch two salmon weighing around 10 kg and released the both. It felt good to do that. We fought them hard as usually, using single hooks on our spoons and a new rubberised net from Fox left all scales intact on the salmon, so releasing them went just fine.
Tomorrow we are going to Mörrum for a visit at Laxens hus and then to Fiskeshoppen in Karlshamn for a chat and probably buying some spoons we don't need and then for a lunch at Väggahamnen to eat some salmon cooked in one or another way. A full day with fish without fishing;-)
For those coming to Hasslö to go for the big salmon you have good fishing just 1-2 Nm out of Knuven since southwesterly winds have pushed in some warmer water and also some salmon closer to shore. There is a lot of fish in the area and a very few garfish, so now is the time to go for the big ones. A couple of really nice nice fish is taken every day in the area so the time to get the catch a really nice fish is right now.
