In the wonderful archipelago of Karlskrona you will find some of the best pike fishing areas in Sweden. Karlskrona archipelago is literally known as “The Pike Kingdom” due to the great fishing areas and its healthy pike habitat. You will easily reach these spots with our well equipped boats.
Where to fish?
Depending on conditions and season you are able to fish in a great variety of places in the archipelago. From shallow bays (0.2-2m of depth) to between islands and rocks and at open sea. If you visit Karlskrona for the first time we recommend a guided trip on your first day to get good knowledge about where to fish at the moment and also how to drive in our archipelago.
Pike 123cm (48,43 inc.), Perch (2,1 kg), Sea trout (11 kg) and Salmon (24,8 kg).
Pike fishing is possible all year (except from winter if ice appear). Peak season is in April-May and September-October. During these months both size and numbers can be crazy! It’s also possible to fish for pike in the summer. Then we go further out in the archipelago where the water temperature is a few degrees colder than the bays and shallow areas. Actually, the really big mamas are caught frequently in winter season from November to March.
Perch is also an all year around fish but the best period for perch is late summer, early fall.
Sea trout fishing begins in February and peaks in March-April. There are several rivers to choose from in the region of Blekinge, amongst them the world famous Mörrum river.
Trolling fishing for Salmon and Sea trout begins in late March and reaches into June. Trolling for stationary salmon is at its best in mid May and August – September.
