There’s no doubt that some of the biggest landlocked arctic char in Scandinavia are found in some of the Norwegian lakes housing fish farms. Last weekend Kinetic product developer Elias Narvelo was fishing a Norwegian water together with test team member Fredrik Hansen and their friends Thomas Ringstrømm and Jesper Cramer. In total they were able to land 111 char between the four of them. The technique more or less ice fishing techniques adapted to boat fishing. Best lures were Magic Minnow Titicaca and Titicaca 2Blink with 10-15 maggots on the single hook below the lure. The rods were Lokka Heavy ice fishing rods and the new Edge 3776 Vertical Jigging. As the name suggest the Edge rod was designed for vertical jigging – especially for large zanders. It proved to be excellent for this kind of fishing. Providing the angler with a great feeling of what’s going on, great bite detection and excellent hook setting and fighting properties.
Four of the chars caught exceeded the four kilo mark and Fredrik caught the two biggest as he was using his Edge rod and a glow/black Titicaca 98mm lure. At a weight of 5.2 and 5.8 kilos these were really massive fish.Fredrik is now working on a full story on the trip. This will be featured in a future issue of the fiske-febermagazines in Denmark and Sweden.

Only local rental boats can be used and the team released all their fish unharmed.
