Enebær Odde 29-30/9 2012

A weekend trip with the Bombayfly guys to Enebær Odde. This is a beautiful spot at the entrance to Odense Fjord where we should stay at the light house for two nights. Due to road constructions and heavy traffic everybody arrived very late and we could not fish friday evening. Saturday morning some of us started early while others were taking care of their hangovers.

I fished with Michael and we soon found a spot with lots of activity. Many fish showed at the surface some head and tailed while others jumped. It was a mixture of coloured and blank fish and small and big fish but despite the activity within casting reach we did not catch much.

At one time Michael casted to a small fish and hooked a much better fish.

It was a 53 cm very nice trout that turned out to be the best fish on the trip and thanks to this he won a bottle of Bombay Sapphire and a table from Brd. Andersen.

This morning Michae ended up catching four trouts and I got five but expect the fine fish everything was released.

I do not know how but after fishing an hour or so I discovered this little fellow in my stripping basket.

This trip was not as productive as we had hoped for. I got 8 trouts but only smaller fish but we did see some nice fish jump and I will definately join the trip next year if it is possible and we did have a lot of fun and that is an important part of the game as well.

Moesgaard 19/9 2012

Michael called for an afternoon trip to Moesgaard which is very suitable for a short trip and as my work for the day more or less was done I accepted at once.

 

 

It was quite windy with a mixture of sun and rain producing several rainbows

 

I spend an hour chasing schools of mackerells but without succes. Here you may see the nervous water at the right hand side of the photo.  Michael got one mackerell but it was not hooked properly so his choice of fly did not help me. After giving up the mackerels I joined Michael that in another spot had caught two sea trouts above the minimum size with the largest on 54 cm and he told that he had seen a bigger fish in the area.

 

Two casts later I hooked a very good fish and after the highest jump I have ever seen a trout make we could beach this sea trout. 73 cm and more than 9 pounds.

 

Naturally we had to make several photos as this is not an every day experience for us 🙂

 

The harvest of this 3 hour trip:  3 trouts and one mackerell. we were very content when we left for home.

Moesgaard Strand 11/9 2012

Except for one empty handed trip for sea bass to Hirtshals I had not been fishing for two months due to holiday, music festivals, family gatherings etc. So it was a joy to say yes when Michael called about an evening trip to Moesgaard. We started pretty slow but after 1½ hour a fish showed a bit out of casting distance so our hopes went up.  Soon after we saw a fish within reach and Michael had a take but it was too small. Later we both had offers but it was only Michael that managed to hook the fish – I must need more practice

that was released.

It was a nice evening ad we saw several porpoises and a seal despite we were only 10 minutes away from the center of Århus. Could I ask for more? maybe a fish that will grab my fly.
