Æbelø 28-30/5-2010

A trip to Æbelø with Michael and Simon searching for good sized sea trout. We went in Michaels inflatable boat pulling my pontoon boat with Michaels belly boat on top – it was quite a fleet.

Æbelø seen from our starting point. We had to pull the boat at first as the water was quite low.

The first evening we fished without much luck as we only got some garfish that were all over the place. 

The next morning I got this 43 cm trout that was released as it was too small as a 3 person meal.

Later same morning Simon got this 1.7 kg trout despite his ugly stripping basket 😉

Typical Æbelø coast with small layered cliffs  and deep water close to the coast and many BIG rocks in the water. It should be the optimum water for sea trout.

Simons trout prepared on our camp fire – it was very good

As you can see on this sunset the weather was fantastic and it was like that all weekend. There was almost no wind in the mornings and in the evenings so we could see if fished showed at the surface but except for garfish it was a bit disappointing the lack of trouts showing. The second evening Simon lost a five pounder at very close range and the last morning Michael worked his way to two fish just above the minimum size. They were both released.

Simon pulling our fleet the last meters back to our starting point.  Despite the not too impressive fishing except for Simons two encounters with good sized trouts we had a fantastic weekend with beautiful weather  and next week we will give it another shot with the Bombay fly guys.
