Martin,
That's almost pornographic for me! Confused

It's a pity it isn't "scratch and sniff" the salty air must be blind'in!

Hardcore...

Ripley,

That was just on the rough side, even for a wind lover. I think we had a wind from the back at up towards 20 meters per second in the peaks and probably some 15-17 meters per second in average. Not that the fish cared, but it was actually difficult to stand still because of wind and waves.

I prefer something a little less dramatic. Like this little clip from a recent trip where the wind was rough, but conditions were close to perfect anyway. It may seem quite calm, but the sound tells another story. It was pretty windy.

This was the fish as photographed by Kasper (seen on the video):

Thanks for more useful information folks, some really good read indeed.

Tomorrow we plan to take a trip to Amager Strandpark and fish on the beach. Is there anything that I should be aware of, ie. restrictions, etc.

Sunday we plan to head down to Køge and give it another go. Smile

Our morning outing at Amager Strandpark started out slow but ended somewhat satisfying. Smile

We were able to connect with a few garfish on these orange wooly buggers that I had tied up before I left Canada.









We didn't see "millions" like what you have witnessed Laughing but I did see a school swimming by towards the end of our outing.

I think we're going back out again tonight. Smile

Millions might be something that has escaped my mouth, but I never saw millions either - particularly not this late in May. The great run is over and it's sea trout time again. The weather the coming days call out for some sea trout fishing.

The garfish run is usually short, about a month or less.

And congrats with the fish BTW!

Martin

Thanks Martin. Smile We went out again this evening but this weather is driving me nuts. One minute it was sunny, next minute rain was coming down sideways.

Anyways, we did not connect with any fish tonight but I did have a few taps and saw one followed to shore. One gentleman landed two in a row while we were there on a spoon.

I realize the peak garfish run is now over, but one can still expect to catch some until June right? I still need to get lots of video footages as originally planned. Crying or Very sad

Next Wednesday to Saturday Nina and I are off to Bornholm. Smile Any recommendations? We are staying at the northern tip of the island.

Have a good weekend all. Sunday we'll be fishing around Køge, I'll post an update if I find any fish. Smile

Rodney,

Sent you a private mail with further information, but for the benefit of the forum crowd:

Unfortunately you are also a bit on the late side there. Bornholm is very much a winter and spring place, but anyhow.

Contact my good friend Carsten, who is a part time guide on the island. He has a home page here with his co-guide Otto: http://angelguide.dk/
He knows what's happening on the island right now. And if not, he knows someone who does. Since we have had a slow spring you might be in luck.

There is also the local fly club http://www.fluefiskerne.dk/ (in Danish). Carsten is a memeber and there are many other very nice people to be met through there.

The pike fishing is opening right now, and Martin - the bike smith - will know where to go. He has a combined bike, sewing maching and fishing shop (sic!) in Rønne. You should definitely pay him a visit. Also the shop Sport Dres is worth a visit. Both are on the outskirts of Rønne towards north quite close to each other.

And of course the article from our annual Bornholm trip has just come online.

Martin
