South Sweden offers various opportunities for pike fishing: from smaller, shallow and turbid lakes to huge, deep and very clear lakes like Vättern. Fishing methods vary depending on the type of lake and range from spin- and jerkbait- fishing to trolling. The best period for pike fishing in Smaland begins in mid September and continuous throughout winter when we go ice fishing.
The pre-spawning pike fishing in open water in early spring is usually difficult, but also very rewarding as the weight of the pike peaks during this period. A few weeks after spawning in April, the pike start feeding aggressively and are easy to catch until the water hits summer temperatures in June.
