Kinetic test-team member Jakob Lindberg has just returned from his second trip to Sørøya in Norway this season. Once again he was targeting the monster cods caught up there right now. This year the fishing has been phenomenal and a lot of cods in excess of 30 kilo have been caught. The majority of these cods have been caught on the new Magic Minnow Big Bob sea fishing jig – and actually Jakob was the one who came up with the initial idea of making this jig. Together with Nordic Sea Angling he has been an important part of testing and perfecting it.
On his first trip this year Jacob caught nothing less than three cods over 30 kilos on Big Bob. The biggest of these took the scale to 34.0 kilo. In other words expectations for his second trip were sky-high. Jakob and his friends Troels Bill and Mads Sylvester were all hoping to cross the 30 kilo barrier.
Only a year ago most people would say that these expectations were completely insane, but this year anything seems possible. It’s the best season ever and the guys were fishing with the best big cod lure ever made – Big Bob! On the first day of fishing both Troels and Mads had their dreams fulfilled. Both of them caught cods at the exact same weight – 30.5 kilo. On the third day Troels crossed the “barrier” once again. This cod was 30.25 kilo. And finally – towards the end of the trip – Jakob and Big Bob did it again. A large cod engulfed the 40cm jig and soon after Jakob was posing with a 33.2 kilo cod. This cod was his fifth ever over 30 kilo! A remarkable achievement unmatched by any other sea angler in Scandinavia or – as far as we know – any other sea angler worldwide).
