What can you do when fishing is slow? Take some pictures!
Anglers in the Baltic area will often spend some days in the cold months in pursuit of sea trout. Sometimes you can run into the most fantastic fishing, but most days are slow and cold. You cannot stay too long in the water, and when it is as coldest, ice will form—both in the water and in the guides of your rod. There is little life in the water and the few fish, which are around, are generally slow and not very active. Sun can stimulate activity, and just a few hours of heat from the low sun can bring about an amazing blooming of critters in the shallow water. When the water is close to freezing, even a couple of degrees increase in temperature will make a big difference.
So why go?
We go because we still like to be by the water, and because we might happen to be lucky. And who can sit in the living room looking out on a nice sunny day, which just plagues you to go fishing? Once you are out there you can enjoy the fantastic snowscapes, the ice formations and hopefully the beauty of a blue sky and a low sun. And don’t remember to bring a camera and take plenty pictures.
