LicenseKårtjärn is a small pond in the woods, a few km up the valley. There is Perch, Burbot, Pike, Arctic Char, Brown Trout, and Roach there. During the winter months it is the Arctic Char that is the most popular catch there. Number two is the Perch. During the summer they usually fish for Brown Trout. I have heard Göte talk a lot about this pond. He has caught some really nice sized Char here. Way over the one kg mark.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon and ErikStråsjön is one of my favorite lakes in the area. Here there is perch, Brown trout, Arctic Char, and Burbot. There are also some rumors going around that they once stocked some Grayling, and Rainbow trout here. The summer fishing here is a lot of fun, because there is a lot of small perch here, that are easy to catch, and the nature here is like paradise, it is so beautiful. This week end Simon and Erik wanted to join us. I didn't know Simon that well, so I was not sure how much he knew about Ice fishing. Erik was from the area, and I have gone fishing with him a few times, and know that he knows a lot of the good places in the area.

20071230-1 While I am getting my things ready for the days fishing trip, A car stops right in front of my doorstep, and a horn is honked on. It is Henrik. He got my message from the day before, and has come to join us. Quickly I make a couple extra sandwiches. Göte shows up a few minutes later, and soon we are on our way.
