In detta fish reportage, Self-Made Crank tweaked PB Fish Magazine, we follow when there is a personal record pike.
Jonathan Jörlås from Karlstad was looking at a little after nursery fishing, including his homemade Crank. It is often a hot area as he used to fish in, the area is a bit out of Lake Vänern. It is seldom that he has gone from there without having received some fairly good pike. He has over the years attracted a number of one meter in that particular area, which he also did this time.
When Jonathan had arrived at the hot field he put on The Sounds on Spotify. According to Jonathan, it's the unbeatable gäddmusik which immediately turn out and sue, for after only about 20 minutes as Jonathan a stab.
It proved to be one of the few olekta pike this time of year, Pike weighed about 4 kg. It did not take long after the blow, a little closer to a reef, he saw that one rod on one side of the boat tripped. Jonathan thinks for a while if it took the bottom if he came too close to the reef.
But when Jonathan takes the rod, he feels that it is heavy jerks from the other end, indicating that he has a pike of the larger model on the hook. Pike remains at the outer edge where it struck a long time and it rarely smaller fish which of course tend to slip in behind the boat pretty soon.
When the pike got over the other works and is straight back as she swims in place with the boat still down at the bottom. It takes a while before Jonathan can lift the pike straight up towards the boat.
Once he sees the fish a bit down in the water, he of course a bit knäskak, but everything goes well for pike sits perfectly hooked. Pike had really been in the mood for it had taken quite properly so it got a little book before she was loose again.
Once on the mat gets Jonatan it confirmed what he had suspected and hoped for, and that was that there is a new PB for pike on the length, For his part. He was alone in the boat and did his best to capture the images and the result was clearly approved.
What joy Jonathan most of all was that the pike had taken on his homemade Crank on 27 cm. Jonathan knows that the size is cruel because he has previously received a couple of large pike on that particular size, which means that he has an immense faith precisely the size.
Jonathan's self-produced Crank tweaked PB on 12,0 kg and 125 cm along with some help of The Sounds on Spotify.
