New App for easy fishing in southern Sweden


The new app “Fish Kingdom” guides the anglers to lakes and streams by choosing a fish they would like to catch. The angler can also find accommodation and service close to the lake. In some cases, a fishing licence will be available to buy directly in the smart phone. The app also contains information and pictures of each fish species, giving the angler a full set of information before reaching the desired lake.

“Fish Kingdom” present six fish species that can be caught in the lakes and streams of southern Sweden. When the angler has chosen a fish the app will provide suggestions and distance to the lakes as well as pictures, information and maps. So far the app only contains information about some areas in the heart of Småland, but keep updated, more areas will follow.



The app can be downloaded and used free of charge. Search for Fish Kingdom to find and download the app.

“Fish Kingdom” is available for both Android and iPhone.






Deep pike fishing

I meant to catch some large zander in a small lake near my home this weekend. An early morning, 3am, but the sun was already up, and as usual no competition on the best spots of the lake. Going for the large zander lurking in the pelagic regions of the lake, and we soon found them - or that is what we thought. A good clear echo on 10 metres of depth, immedeately going for the 20cm shad that we offered. BAM!...and it was gone together with the jig - probably pike. 
Half an hour later it was time again, fish on 8 metres of water this time, the bottoom at 16 metres.  The jig went down and the fish reacted, and hit the jig on 6 metres. We could tell that it was a good fish, but what species? A minute later it came to the surface - pike again.
And that was how the day continued, the zander kept reacting and neglecting our baits and the only fish biting was the pike. Landing some nice fish between 75 - 90 cm. So if You are going to Sweden in the next couple of weeks, go for the pike and do not fear to fish deep. (All fish was standing in between 6-11 metres).

Attach a picture of Mr Daniel Stolt and one of the pikes. Caught in a lake in the area of Sommenbygd in the region of Östergötland.



New Swedish records

During this rather rainy week, the Swedish national organization for anglers (Sportfiskarna) announced that this spring has delivered two new Swedish records for the species bream (Abramis brama) and rudd (Scardinius erythrophthalmus ). And both of them was caught in the south of Sweden!

The impressive bream was caught in the region of Skåne, lake Bysjön, weighing in on 7960g with a length of 74cm. Caught on a combination of real maggot and a "fake" maggot.

The new Swedish record for rudd is now 1730 g with a length of 46 cm. Caught in the region of Östergötland, river Svartån, on a bread flake early in the evening on May 15th.


I'd also like to mention that the Swedish "super angler" Jörgen Larsson caught a zander in the end of May weighing 11,82 kg with a length of 101 cm. That was just 187 g from the Swedish record!


And remember, after all this rain, the salmon will surely rise in our southern rivers on both the east and west coast - time to get in the car and head for Sweden!
