good fishing in late september in Croatia I put the Stelzbock on the
trailer to go back north.
On the 15th of
october around 7am close to Kassel I had to stop suddenly because of
a stopped Truck on the highway .In the same second I got to a stop
another 40ton truck crashed into the Stelzbock and pushed it with me
in my van into the stopped truck. The boat and car are a total loss
but I got out with just a broken hand. We will see what and when
something will replace the Stelzbock.

Until april the fishing was not very
good in Simrishamn.
The water was very cold and the fish
didn´t feed or very not in the area.
We did our first trip with the
Stelzbock easter but had bad weather and 2.3 degrees cold water.The
fish were more frequent in Bornholm but I had nothing organized to go
there. We fished only 2 days and caught a 12kg cod north of the
davids bank but only had one bite of a salmon that didn´t
My father and his 12kg cod
The next trip was in the end of
april and the fish were still in Bornholm so Axel and his friends
Marco and Andreas fished there and caught a 5 kg and a 9 kg salmon
and also lost a nice one.
I arrived on the 30st of april and
fished alone first in Simrishamn and caught two very small salmon but
the water was still too cold so I road over to Bornholm and fished
there for two days. I caught only one 4 kg salmon and heared of some
friends that first big travelling salmon have been caught in
Simrishamn so I went back. I caught one about 3,5 kg in 40feet . I
heared of lots of big salmon caught on the surface including 2 over
20 kg !!! and changed my system to travelsalmonfishing with higher
speed and straight spoons close to the surface for the next day.
The wind picked up to 8m/s and it
was very rough but the salmon liked it !
Multiple catchreports on the radio
stopped me from giving up and at midday I got my first bite of a nice
one . Unfortunatly the clip on the plannerboard got tangeled due to
the rough sea and the line broke after drowning the planner board !
Two hours later I got another bite
on a Dipsy diver with a Grizzly salar and after a difficult netting I
had my 12kg traveller in the boat !
The weatherforcast for the next days
was bad so I packed and went home But I´ll come back for more !
Andreas and the start of a great day
