12.3

kg seatrout caught by Marcus Gjørret.


The biggest seatrout of the season.

It was a truly gigantic seatrout, caught by junior Marcus Gjørret the 26. july 2020. The fish was caught on a lure, in the lower part of the river. This colossal fish, measuring in at a staggering 91 cm proofs, that it is not only during summertime that River Karup delivers some of Europe’s biggest seatrout.   

 

Sea trout fishing in all its diversity

Variation is what characterizes the angling for sea trout in the River Karup. Though the sea trout can be fished for during daytime, most fishing, both by fly and spinning, is done in the evening and morning.

The flyfisher uses large surface fished tube flies to attract the sea trout. The spinfisher’s lure or wobbler offers both sound and visual effects that can be irresistible to sea trout. Fishing with worm is usually practiced in a coloured river. In high water, the bait fisherman can present the worm deep and slow. It is not unusual for some of the season’s top 10 fish to be caught on worm in the middle of the day. What really sets the fishing for sea trout apart is fly fishing at night with wake flies. Those semi-buoyant flies are fished with a lifelike wobble across the surface causing a big wake so attractive to this species.

 Night fishing for sea trout can be great sport. The angler moves silently along the river in the darkness, nothing other than the sounds of nature disturbs the silence other than the swish of the fly line in the air, and then, occasionally, a loud splash of a fish jumping right next to you.

In the early morning hours, when the ‘night owl’ sea trout fly-fishermen head home after a night’s concentrated effort, they’ll often meet the ‘early risers’; as the quiet early morning hours are the favored time of day for many anglers. Mornings are a time of peace when you see how the day slowly gets brighter, how the midnight blue turns to lighter blue and the sun finally rises. Sea trout migrate under the cover of darkness and early in the morning. Quite often you will witness how the river comes alive as a huge fish passes, and creates an impressive bulge in the water. But the pursuit of sea trout is not restricted to the twilight hours, it can continue during the day: with stealth and good presentation you can catch sea trout in even the brightest sunlight. Though catching a day time sea trout is considered very challenging, anglers practicing their fishing at these times have demonstrated year after year that the fishing can be most rewarding.
