A trip to Lovns Bredning with the Bombay guys wadefishing for sea trout. We started out at Virksund but our local guides Michael and Frank were not optimistic as the water was extremely low – actually 50 cm below normal and they claimed that the spots we were going to fish at were best at 10-20 cm above normal level. They both claimed that they have never seen the water this low. The reason was the wind that has been East and South for a couple of weeks. The wind from East also means that the temperature was low – just above the freezing point.
Michael showed that he was the local man as he landed this trout just below the minimum size limit quite soon. I lost a similar fish soon after and then felt nothing more. The cold weather made our car stop efter a couple of hours while the others continued but when we left no legal fish had been landed.
