We took a sunday to see and feel the waters out off Hasslö before soon getting there for a weeks fishing. We tried out the boat and equipment and everything worked well. We even caught some fish. Not very big but big enough for the grill next week. Some 4,5 kg salmon and a smaller one, to be back in the water.
Bert took a photo of the salmon with the new downriggerweights from Scanlure.
This weights tracked well, have no sharp edges, outershell made of plastic that will not destroy the boat if they accidently get close to the boats sides. We tried out our new cameras and they give a really good quality of the film. Some softwarebugs remains to get fixed, but in time those will be solved too. We have two cameras and hopefully we get something to film so we can cut our fishingfilms whole nights and fish all days:-)
Scanlure bottomseeker, Grizzly spoon from Denmark. Salmon from Hasslö, Sweden.

I had a really weird thing going on when i had a tangle on my stacked downrigger rod and the inner surfacerod. Those two baits found each other and the surfacerods hook managed to get through the stacked spoons tophole. I have never seen anything like this so i took a photo of it...what is the chance doing this trick again?
The tangle was easy to solve, just take out the hook from the hole and the spoons went fishing again.
It's looking good for the weekend. Weather is going to be a bit cold but what the heck, just get on with the big suckers. Try to get atleast one 15+ salmon is our goal. Tight lines and be careful out there.
