Byalven, Sweden

Cold bright winters and long nights provide the chance to fish through the ice. Quality perch are located (caught and released) using small jigs fished just off bottom. Fish one spot then move a few yards, drill another hole and fish again.
As long as the ice is a good 10cm thick it is quite safe. February/March is normally the best time of the year. The ice starts breaking up in April and by May it is all gone and it is back to conventional fishing methods.

Sweden, Guided fishing for Asp, Pike, Perch and Zander.

Fredrik is one of the countries top and most enthusiastic guides operating from an area around Mariestad in south central Sweden just over 2 hours drive east from Gothenburg.

Clients stay in a choice of accommodation close to top waters that Fredrik knows well. A secluded log cabin catering for up to 4 clients providing high standards of personal comfort or we offer a friendly country inn with twin and single bedrooms.  John Horsey experienced excellent top water lure fishing for Asp on a trip in late August fishing rocky reefs with Fredrik on vast Lake Vanern, Sweden’s largest lake.

Asp are predators that work in groups targeting shoals of baitfish close to the surface. Asp move fast and fishing with a guide from a boat is the favoured way to target these hard fighting fish. Expect to catch asp in the 6 to 12 pound range.

With frequent flights to Gothenburg and an easy drive to the fishing locations, short 3 day plus guided trips make for good value. June to September the perfect time of the year.

2016 Fishing Update

After a good winter the snow was gone we were proved wrong by mother nature April turned out to be a cool month soon as May arrived the weather changed went straight into summer which turned out to be one of Ontario’s hottest summer’s ever on record! It was getting hotter and hotter with no rain the Carp seemed confused as to when to spawn which only lasts a day or so in Canada. End of May we had John Tom & Paul who fished hard in very hot temperatures who caught between them 135 fish with Paul netting 4 over 25 lb. Now the lads coming in June would have to be patient and catch at the right time of the day soon they would catch 8 over 3 over and personal best for our Andy 2.6 lb. In all a total weight of of fish.

Kevin joined us in August with the family, fished some of my local hot spots as well as the garden swims. Very soon Kevin had fish up to 26 lb. then it was not long after had fish from the garden swims 26 lb. 28 lb. 29 lb. then topped off by a beauty 33 lb.! Next a lovely couple arrived in September very soon Bob was soon into catching fish over I showed Bob some of my local hot spots  soon rewards where there with several good’s and a superb 31.5 lb. Bob worked hard at baiting fishing the right times finished the holiday with 8 over plus lots of double figure fish. Another 2 weeks of fishing and fun! For the next guys who work very hard taking it in turns when they get a run also taking it in turns to bait up a great system soon enough Steve had a good followed by Phil 33.14 lb Don later on catching a 30.02 lb well done lads. The lads fished the lawns and my local fishing spots and sure enough produced 20. lb’s and 30. lb’s. Phil was very pleased and surprised to catch a Muskie 21.13 lb of the Lakeside garden swim now the new name is Muskie Phil! In all the Lads had 19 doubles 23 twenties and 5 thirties. Other guests enjoyed fish of 29.13 lb almost the 30 lb! Saving a bigger one for the next time.  Don landed one time on his own 1250 lb with 14 over 20 lb with a personal best 32. lb. It pays to work hard and rewards are there. Mid – October ended our season with some great fishing the weather was mixed warm windy then cooler temperatures but that did not dampen any of our guests spirits.

Once again we are delighted to hold our Carp Thanksgiving fishing contest but first I needed to remind everyone the main key here is the pre-baiting and everyone was to catch fish at Lakeside Cottages. This weekend was truly amazing and well deserved with great fishing by any standards! All worked extremely hard baiting and fishing at all times day and night and in the end were well rewarded well done everyone! Tops marks to you all for sticking with it baiting and fishing at all hours. Cat our most famous fishing Lady had a 31 lb Karen topped that with a superb 34 lb biggest of the season! What a great way to finish the season.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next year all the best, Mike & Eileen
