Hjälmaren Lake (Pike, Zander)

hjalmaren1The Hjälmaren lake is located in southern Sweden. This is a big lake – the fourth biggest water reservoir in this country. Its surface amounts to about 484 square km and its length to about 60 km. The Hjälmaren is a beautiful lake, round-shaped, with a substantial number of islands. The lake is surrounded by woods, meadows and swamps full of birds and wild animals, which are a vast natural park.

There are many holiday homes at the lake but they are dwelled mainly in the summer season, i.e. in July and August. Out of season, there is peace and quiet over there.

Despite its size, the Hjälmaren lake is relatively shallow. Its maximum depth amounts to 22 meters but its average depth is about 6 meters.

hjalmaren2There are lots of underwater rocks, stones pointing out of the water, as well as charming reedy bays covered with water-lily leaves in most parts. These places are ideal pike seats, while the pike is the most popular target of anglers coming here. In some periods, especially in May and late in fall, when the underwater plants don’t make fishing that hard, you may count for real pike-harvest while  fish of over 100 cm are not rare.

Apart from pike, the sander and perch are very popular here. Especially in the warmer months, they are an attractive supplement to the pike. Feel invited to come to this beautiful lake. Our guide, Tomasz Krysiak, has his big, fast and safe boat here. The boat is fully equipped with fishing stuff and electronics (echosounder, GPS).

krysiakAsked what I do, I usually answer ‘I fish!’. Because that’s the way it is. I started as a young boy. My father used to drag me to bigger and smaller rivers of the Pomerania region and lakes of the Szwajcaria Kaszubska (Kashubian Switzerland) region – I am from Gdynia, so it was nearby.
