Here are two ways how to trim baitfish with Vuoksiraksi baitheads.

This is how a baitfish swims with the frontloop bent just slightly to either side. Hookwire is following the stomach on the baitfish. I think the bait fishes more effective if the loop is bent less because current and speed on the boat will change, and then the rollspeed on the baitfish aswell. Slower turns works better then fast, specially when going for the big ones:-) Both setups will fish fine from 1-4 knots. (1.8-7.2km/h)

Here the tacklehook is bent to the side of the baifish, towards the back. The faster you go, the less you need to bend the tackle. This set up works really nice on most flashers too. The loop in front of the tackle is slightly bent as usually.  Either way can work fine, depending on the size of the baithfish, speed aso.  Try to bend the frontloop opposite the way you bend the hookwire. This way you will find an erratic, pulsing movement and you are ready to go. Start testing!

Warrior 165

Sven Hille decided to keep his Warrior 165. There were many potential byers, but they wanted the boat without motor. Sven prefer to sell the boat as it turns out on the photo above It will maybe bee for sale again later this year. I leave the photo of the boat here on my blogg.

Mer Lax I Vättern.

I did some work on the interior today. I had the latest sticker from put among the others on the inside of the boat. I don't know where else to put them and i just wonder where to put them when the inside is full!? Maybe pimp up some flashers? IceAge winter has been good for the fish in the lakes. To make sure it's going to be even better in the future you can contribute with some kronas. Info about how to contribute is found on the link above.

Warrior at rest!

Boat looked like this last sunday. I have kept most of the snow of her whole winter since the weight from the snow is bad for the canopy. It looked good with the snow starting melting this weekend but now i have another 10cm snow covering her with more to come. I have booked a time for an  appointment with Mr.Outboard himself, Mr.Kling at Skene järn, Skene. This man is a very good with boatengines so he will help me with some maintanence, and she will be ready to go in a couple of months to battle the big salmons in Lake Vänern. It's a little bit early, but at some point i know it will be a bit stressful to get the boat completely ready for fishing, so i do the main work earlier. 
Winter has been very good otherwise. I have completed 800km on my crosscountry skiis. Tracks have been open all over the community so i have just kept going. Snowy, cold days i have done the training in a gym. So when spring comes i will be more then ready for the challenge on the big lakes. And the Warrior too, with all the rest she has had this winter + some TLC.
