I was invited to my life's first trolling trip by Carl-Hendrik and it was with excitement and high expectation that I went on a few trips with him during last autumn. I been fishing quite a lot from boat in rivers for trout and salmon but trolling with deep rigs, paravans and sonar was completely new for me.
Getting ready for some trolling.
85 feet deep and it gets in meters? Both Hornavan and Uddjaur offer lots of shallows so it is important to keep an eye on the sonar to not get stuck in the bottom and tear off the rigs.
If you take someone that has not been doing trolling and releases both rigs and paravans at the same time in the wind, it would be a wonder if you did not come up with a heavy mess.
Fantastic evening despite wind and about 10 degrees in the air.
Right clothes keep you in better mood.
Concentrated face when reeling in the first fish on trolling.
Nice arctic char catched at Hornavan.
Day's catch was two arctic chars.
When the temperature drops below 10 degrees and the darkness begins to fall, it is time to start thinking about going home.
Trolling pictures from a few trips to Uddjaur and Aisjaur in September, slightly varying weather from crashing to bright sunshine..
Double rainbows must mean good fishing luck or?
Sonar show fish so need to make a few extra throws.
No waste of time to make those few extra throws at Uddjaur.
Arjeplog offer nice views and places around the lakes.
Short break on land where the sun warmed up bit.
The fishing luck is perhaps as good or better in lake Aisjaur?
A couple of the nice pikes we got in Aisjaur.
Mixed catch of trout, pike and perch of the day.
