VK Raporttia Ahvenanmaalta

Paljon on kuulunut raportteja ja viestejä hienoista VK kaloista ympäri Suomea. Ohessa yksi erityisen huolellisesti tehty. Tommin ja teamin kohtuullisen onnistunut Ahvenanmaan reissu. Onnea! Sorry, only in Finnish.






"Oltiin Ahvenanmaalla 9 päivää kesäkuun alussa, joista 7 päivänä päästiin vesille. Pari päivää oli sen verran kova tuuli (14-16m/s) että ei ollut asiaa merelle.


Vesillä tunteja tuli kaiken kaikkiaan noin 80h, joista pääosa oli vetotunteja. Siirtymät oli yhtä päivää lukuun ottamatta erittäin lyhyitä.

Kalaa tuli erittäin hyvin. Kokonaissaldo meidän venekunnalla oli 8 lohta, yhteispainoltaan 86kg. Lohet oli painoltaan 14.5kg, 13.5kg, 12.8kg, 12.7kg, 12.5kg, 8kg, 7,6kg ja 4.3kg.

Näistä kaksi suurinta saatiin tuplatärpistä, jotka lähti täsmälleen samalla sekunnilla takilasta. Toiselle kelpasi klunssila vapaasti hengittävänä ja toiselle vihreä-kelta-kromi yhdistettynä

pikku vk levyyn. Myös 12.5kg tuli takilasta klunssilalla. Kaikki muut kalat tulivat aivan pintakalvosta plaanareiden takaa. Hupuista parhaiten pelasivat vihreä-kelta-kromi, klunssila ja lapin kulta. Suurin osa kaloista tuli pikku VK levyn takaa ja yhdistävänä värinä oli kulta jossakin muodossa, joko itse levyn värinä tai teippinä pinnassa. VK:n tuotteet toimivat erittäin hyvin, joten siitä kiitos!

Yhtenä päivänä ajoimme aina Märketille saakka pohjoiseen, josta löysimme erittäin hyvän paikan ja siitä saimmekin 12.7kg, 8kg ja 7,6kg. Lisäksi meillä on jonkin aikaa kiinni aivan mieletön mörkö, joka veti siimaa hirveällä vauhdilla. Pääsimme pitelemään kalaa hetken aikaa vavan päässä ja näimme kun se hyppäsi noin 250m päässä veneestä, ennen kuin irtosi. Mutta se lähtö oli aivan mieletön ja hetkellisesti luulin että Pennistä sauhu nousee. Onneksi on koko homma videolla, josta kuuluu myös tuo hurja ulosveto.

Kuvasin jonkin verran sekä kameralla että suurin osa väsyttelyistä on videolla ja ajattelin koostaa niistä syksymmällä jonkinlaisen videon, jonka työnnän juutuubiin, niin pääsee sitten hämmästelemään syksyn pimeinä iltoina. Tässä liitteenä muutama foto kaloista ja meidän venekunnan jäsenistä.

Landlocket Salmon 9,2kg

I got message from couple Finnish guys, who fishing last weekend in one smaller size Finnish lake. They caught huge 9,2kg salmon with baitfish and small size VK-Baitholder, color Sunset. Great job, congratulations guys!

"Aamu oli launtaina lähes tyyni kun menimme vesille. Vapoja laskiessa veneen keulassa kävi iso kala pinnassa . Aamu kulki vaputelessa 3kpl pientä kalaa kello 10.20 maissa lähestyimme kahta syvää aluetta silloin minun ulompi plaanari jossa 20g painoa ja pieni vk huppu jossa salakka syötti ja väri sunset alkoi pakittamaan vähän paremmin ja samalla läksi toinen plaanari samalla sivulla ulommaiessa tuntui että kyseessä parempi kala . Lapinsalon Ossi kelasi pienen kalan pois ja otti perän puhtaaksi vavoista sillä aikaan minä pitelin kalaa joka hyppäsi kolme kertaa . Kalan väsytys kesti 15 min ilman mitään ongelmaa ja kalan veneeseen saatuamme huomasinne ompas aika iso ja koukku tukevasti kiinni koukkuja 1kpl koko 4 . Punnitsimme kalan Rapalan digitaalinen näytti 9,2-9,3kg . Kotona punnitsimme kalan joka oli veristetty vaaka näytti 9,170 kg. Mika Päiväläinen"

Salmon Fishing in Pacific Ocean

Richard Enderle from California USA, sent VK-trolling facebook page report & pictures of their fantastic succses in Pacific. Congratulations and Tight lines for season 2012

Here is Richard report:

"Ever since I introduced the VK2 Flasher to our fishing Club "Coastside" in California we have been slaying the Pacific King Salmon ...off of Bodega Bay and San Francisco last year 2011. We boated at least 50 kings on my boat last year with the VK2 many of them 30lbers. Other members of our club started buying the VK2 and started to beg the local tackle shops to start stocking it.They flew off the shelfs as fast as they could stock them. It would produce more and Bigger Salmon than other rigs especally on a scratch bite or when fishing deep. I even had a 20 pound Pacific Halibut swim 30 ft off the bottom to nail my VK2 with a salmon bait. We caught King Salmon to 40 pounds in my club ..and even old timers are buying them. Thanks for such a wonderfull product!




As the new Salmon Season in California starts in April 2012

our Coastside Members are already asking me about the VK2 Flashers..
how to use them...what colors...how to get them.
Since I was the one to first use the VK2 in our club some members have even given it the nick name of the "DickE" flasher!
which is my Club name.
As an avid user, fan and of VK products which are relatively UNKNOWN here in California.
I would be happy to pass on any info on VK products to our members and others here on the Pacific West Coast USA......to help promote this fine product


Cheers
DickE
Coastside Fishing Club
California USA


PS here is a picture of a 35 pound King Salmon Taken off Bodega Bay Last July
It was caught on my boat ...it was caught using a Large UV Green Special VK2 with an anchovy...125 ft down

Salmon trolling 31.12.2011

I get report from Mats Olsson for their fantastic fishing in lake Vänern.

"Hi Mika


Yesterday was new years eve, and whether report looked great for first time in many weeks.


Me and fishing mate Jonas Bergqvist decided to spend a short day on lake Vänern before celebrating the new year in the evening.


Morning was pretty cold with minus 6 degrees, but when sun came up it became a really nice day.
Fishing was alright to, and before breaking up at around 13.00 we had caught 3 Trout up to 5 kg and one Salmon of 9,88kg. We also missed two fishes.


All fishes where of course caught using baitfish in VK baitholder. The salmon took a baitholder Swedish flag chrome with 20gr lead in surface.
As I see now the salmon of 9,88 kg was pretty close to the winner fish of the competition, but that is life.
It was a fantastic fish caught in a beautiful day on lake Vänern. Great finish of fishing year 2011.


Here are two pictures of the nice salmon from yesterday.


Also sending you pictures of 3 biggest fish, except from yesterdays caught, from our Vänern fishing this nov and dec. All caught using your great baitholders!!!
Salmon of 8,4 kg and 8,9kg caught when fishing friend Henrik Björklund visited me in my boat.
Trout of 7,72kg as I managed to caught using VK baitholder watermelon.



Best regards:
Mats Olsson"

VK-Big Game. Sääntömuutos kilpailuun! New rules of competition! Nya konkurrensregler!

Koska alkuperäisen kilpailusäännön mukaisen kuvan ottaminen, jossa näkyy, kala, kalastaja sekä käytetty VK-raksi, muistaminen kalastustilanteessa on ollut hankalaa, muutamme sääntöjä siten että riittää kuva kalasta ja kalastajasta sekä luonnollisesti todistajan vakuutus siitä että kala on tullut VK-raksilla. Nyt siis kannattaa lähettää kuvia ja saalisilmoituksia kiireesti matkaan kauden 2011 isomuksista. Muista että arvontapalkinnot on myös merkittävän kokoiset ja kaikki 2011 ilmoitetut ja pyydetyt VK kalat ovat yksi arpa arvonnassa.


Because original competition rules makes things difficult to remember, We make decision to change rules. Read new rules http://vk-biggame.blogspot.com/

Would just like to say thank you, and congratulations on landing these big fish!

Another VK-Victory Finnish Championship

Last weekend Team Kuksijat 1 (Jarmo and Jari Suvanto) won the Finnish Lake Salmon Fish Championships. They were using VK-baitholders and on the first day they caught two really nice fish. The total weight was 6.719g and they caught both fish on original size VK baitholders. Their trout weighed 4.504 kg and was the biggest fish caught in the competition.

143 boats started this big two day competition in Lake Päijänne. In the three boat team competition we took 5th place again like last year. One of our three boat team member caught a really nice trout. The fishing was however a little difficult. Our own result was a little poor, we caught many pike, lost one trout and unfortunately had many damaged baits due to fish baits.

This win was fantastic, it was the 4th Finnish Championship Victory for VK-Baitholders in three seasons on the market. The older victories were the Inari Finnish Trolling Championship in 2008, the Helsinki Sea Salmon Trolling Finnish championship in 2008 and the Finnish Lake Salmon Fishing Championship in Lake Päijänne in 2009. In 2009 VK users won the European Championship in Helsinki which was a sea salmon competition. Also in these three years VK-users have won a lot of other different victories in Finland, Sweden and Norway.

VK-Victory in Norway


I get report from Team Håven Norway. Congratulations Ove!

"Hey Mika

I'm sending you a little report from this year's trolling competition; Storsjødreggen on Storsjøen, Norway, which I attended 29-30.6. I had a fantastic fishing for trout there with the VK-bait. I won the competition with the largest trout at 7080 grams, a fairly big and beautiful trout! I won the trolling competition overall, with all 16410 grams of fish .. All trout were caught on VK bait, and I think this is a great baitholder that I have fished extremely well with this year. I also won the general-trolling competition at Femund in 2009 with the most kilograms fish with VK baitholder, and I will take part in the some another trollingcompetition and I'll go 100% on VK's amazing baitholders :)

Team Proviset in Åland




I got report from Team Proviset, Arja and Niko.
They have been fishing Åland the last 2 weeks. They had 15 salmon strikes and landed 12 of the salmon in the boat. They also lost 2 huge fish in the competition, both because the new 0,46 line broke. The twelve salmon weighed 4kg, 4.5kg, 4.5kg, 6.7kg, 7.5kg, 9.5kg, 9.5kg, 9.5kg, 10kg, 10.5kg, 13kg and 13.7kg

The recipe was small VK- baitholders in Coho Blue chrome, "Lapinkulta", Purple Black Chrome and Gold colors, with 13-15cm baitfish.

Eight of the salmon were caught behind the new 6" VK-Flasher with a 120cm long leader, Some were also caught behind the bigger original size model. The flasher colours UV, Chrome and Gold with different color tapes worked fantastic. The team had a trolling speed of 1.5-1.6 knots and they used big and slow barrel rotating with bait.

Their result in the competition was 4th and they took the 9th biggest fish.

Arja fought all of the fish and Niko was just the deckhand:-)

Congratulations on a fantastic fishing holiday.
