These past couple of weeks have been fantastic on the Danish coast
My family decided to go on a diving holiday in Egypt.
I decided to stay home.
I'm not a big fan of tourist destinations and I'm not particularly into diving. I have decided to stay with one way to spend my spare time.
The end result was that they were off to the warmer countries while I stayed home and took care of the dog, the house and the Danish coast.
A wise decision indeed! The last two weeks have been beyond my wildest expectations regarding weather and fishing. We have had temperatures around 15-18 deg. C, which is significantly higher than a usual first half of October. We have had sun every day, and even the days with Northern winds have been dry and sunny.
The water temperatures are optimal right now - around 12-15 deg. C - and with everything coming together like that I have been able to get out quite a bit. Actually I think that I have been out every day but three the last two weeks!
What you get from a burst like that is of course a high probability of catching something, and yes indeed, I have caught. It would be unfair to complain. A lot of fish, and a few decent fish even. On top of that I managed to hook three mullet, which is a 150% increase of my luck with these fish until now. Didn't land any, but hooking is the first step.
A few samples from the past two weeks:
