Steinsfjorden 13.10.12

Gjeddekonkurranse på Steinsfjorden i dag i regi av Pikewallis og Alt om Fiske.

Jeg var tidlig ute for å rekognosere litt, og for å komme før rushtiden på båtslippen. Med 27 påmeldte lag var jeg litt redd for lang kø ved slippen, men det løste seg rimelig greit.

Rekognoseringen ble brukt til å teste min nye Lawson stang på diverse jigger, og litt dorging. Dorgingen ga en liten gjedde (kalles "snipe") på en Rapala Magnum.

Etterhvert dukket også matrosene Simen og Edvard opp, og vi fikk utdelt startbevis og pratet litt skit. Alt var klart til starten klokken 11.00.

Startfeltet begynner å samles.


Fler og fler kom til etterhvert som klokken dro seg mot 11.

Når startskuddet (som egentlig var et rop) gikk, kjørte nesten alle båtene nordover, mens vi kjørte rett østover. Vi dorget rundt øyene inntil vi så fisk på ekkoloddet. Når fisken var lokalisert gikk Edvard og jeg over til å denge, mens Simen vertikalfisket med agnfisk.


Og så dorger vi litt, Simen har ikke våknet helt enda...

Etter en periode med null hugg, gikk vi tilbake til dorging i nordgående retning langs med land på østsiden. Dette ga konkurransens første fisk, i form av en gjedde på 64 cm som glefset over wobleren til Edvard.

Lengre nordover fant vi nok et sted med mye fisk på ekkoloddet, og la oss til for drift med kasting og vertikalfiske.

Simen fikk en gjedde på 57 cm på jigg, mens jeg glimtet til med en på samme mål på vertikalfisket mort på fireball. Jeg mistet også en fisk som kjentes brukbar ut, som tok en shad.

Jeg nappet opp broren 10 minutter senere.


Etter dette dorget vi videre nordover, og rakk helt opp i nordenden før klokken ble 16.00 og det var full fart tilbake til samlingspunktet ved Statoil. Greit med båt som gjør 32 knop med tre mann i, når man glemmer klokken litt....

Vi endte altså på totalt 178 cm, noe som bare kan beskrives som meget seigt fiske. Men det holdt til en delt 5. plass blant teamene. og det må kalles klart godkjent siden i hvertfall jeg var i Steinsfjorden for første gang i sommerhalvåret.


Burde kanskje omdøpe teamet til "U21"? Men innsatsen var A-lag.
Gratulerer til vinnerne, og takk til Pikewallis og AoF for et vel gjennomført arrangement. Håper dette blir en årlig hendelse!

Jeg må forresten skryte litt av min nyinnkjøpte stang som jeg kjøpte på www.avkroken.no. Min nye Lawson leverte varene til gangs. Den er litt myk i tuppen for "tokjerking" men helt perfekt til middels tunge jigger og swimbaits.

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS and Lowrance Elite HDI

Ever since the Elite 7 HDI came on the market I have recived a lot of questions regarding the difference between the HDS-range and Elite HDI. In this article I will try to list most of the differences, seen from a keen anglers point of view. This also means looking at most of what Lowrance has to offer, but I'm sticking to models sold today and models I personally would recommend. The three main model-series, plus the newcomer Elite CHIRP. HDS Gen 2 , true multi function displays (MFD) with button-operation and screensize from 5" to 10,4". HDS Gen 2 Touch , true multi function displays (MFD) with touchscreens and screensize from 7" to 12". Elite HDI , "stand alone", ie not ment for networking besides VHF and AIS. Button-operation and screensize from 4,3" to 7". Elite CHIRP , as Elite HDI but with CHIRP-sonar and faster processor in adition. Screensize 5" and 7".   HDS Gen 2 Units from this series are seen while fishing

What is the difference between HDS Carbon and HDS Live?

Here we go again, a new generation of the Lowrance HDS. And with that Facebook and the different forums are flooded with questions referring to the difference between the new and the old. So what is the difference between Lowrance HDS Live and HDS Carbon?

What is the difference between HDS Gen 3 and HDS Carbon?

Whenever a completely new model or a rewamp of an existing model comes out, we get the same question: "What is the difference?" Lowrance HDS Carbon Previously I have written a few articles about the differences between some of the (now historic) Lowrance-models: What is the difference between Lowrance HDS and Lowrance Elite HDI? What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 2 and HDS Gen 3? This time we will take a look at the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 3 and the brand new Lowrance HDS Carbon that was released 15. december 2016. We will look at the technical stuff, and try to translate that into what it will mean when out on the water. Lowrance HDS Gen 3 HDS Carbon is actually the fifth version of the popular HDS-series. Before it came HDS Gen 1, HDS Gen 2, HDS Gen 2 Touch and HDS Gen 3. HDS Gen 2 Touch marked a new area of how Lowrance run their model-updates, since it was released shortly after HDS Gen 2 and the two lived alon

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Gen 2 and HDS Gen 3?

The cyclus in which models change have become shorter and shorter. Is there any real difference between them anymore? When I started out in this game most people would say that their sonar should stay onboard for 8-10 years before they would even consider upgrading it. Everything with less then 5 years on it was considered "new". But as with all things containing a circuit-board, development has been ever accelerating and we are now down to a two or three year cycle between model-changes. I belive that this is to the consumers advantage, but is "the new" always better then "the old"? In most cases the answer to that question is "yes", but it`s up to you to decide if that difference is big enough for you to spend your hard earned cash. Technically it is easy to spot the differences, but whether you will notice it out on the water is a more subjective mather. In this article I will try to look behind the marketing, and point to the actual diff

What is the difference between Lowrance HDS Live and Elite Ti2?

Lowrance as a brand of marine electronis is well known to all anglers, but the differences within their range of different models seem to cause quite a few questions out there. Here we will try to outline the difference between Lowrance HDS Live (top end) and Lowrance Elite Ti2 (middle range). Lowrance Elite Ti2 vs Lowrance HDS Live (photo; lowrance.com) As usual, we will start with the tech and then try to translate those technical aspects to practical differences while out on the water. Hardware - housing, screen and connections. The screen and housing on Elite Ti2 is the same as on the previous Elite Ti, and again more or less the same as on HDS Gen 2 Touch. (The memorycard-door and mounting-bracket is different from HDS Gen 2 Touch.) This is by no means new stuff, and compared to the more advanced housing and screen on HDS Live, Elite Ti2 is starting to show its relative age. However, with that in mind it is worth noting that when looking at the competition, several of
