Hey guys.. So this was a nice but sad evening..
After we had come home from dinner with some good friends, I went out fishing in Ålabodarna again.
I went alone but I met a guy named Fredrik there. We had a long talk about fishing and at around 10:30 pm he went home.
Just before he left I got a herring. I tought that maybe if the herrings are so close to land maybe the big trouts will follow.
I was right.
So at around 11 pm I trew a long cast and Boom! Biggest trout I have gotten ever was hooked. It was the hardest fight yet. The fish instantly started jumping. It was amazing. Atleast 3 jumps and rushes. My rod, I was using my 8 ft Ron Thompson, was bent so much that I started to worry if it would hold.
After the longest fight I got it close to the rock I was standing on. That’s when I saw the fish close, it was dark but damn this fish was big.. Far bigger than the one I got last time.
Now, remember, it was around 11 pm and it had gotten darker fast. I didn’t have my headlamp on yet.
I reached for my ring net.
But.. I had dragged the fish to close to the rocks, it did a massive hit and it got loose from my hook.
I was so disapointed.. I tried to trow more and more for about one more hour.. Nothing. I got my headlamp on and looked at were the fish had gotten loose and there was a big rock there right in line with the water. Felt bad man.
Lesson learned tho.
Other than that it was a very nice evening. Calm sea, no wind, no clouds with stars all over the sky.
It just realy annoys me how close it was.. Well well.. I get it next time..
Here are some photos from today and I’ll see you guys tomorrow.
