After several days of below zero temperatures Kinetic Test Team member Henrik Carl headed for a small Danish trout lake named Poppelsøen. Together with the owner of the lake, Henrik was testing and measuring the thickness of the ice in large parts of the lake. And of course Henrik used the opportunity to try a bit of ice fishing. It didn’t take him long to hook into a large, powerful rainbow trout. On the light ice fishing tackle Henrik was using, this fish put up quite a fight. It took around 15 minutes before Henrik could pose with a 5 kilo rainbow.
Even though the ice thickness is growing fast and the fish are there, the conclusion of the trip was, that it will take more days with subzero temperatures before ice fishing is allowed on the lake.
A part of the lake has been held open with powerful circulation pumps and will have to gain a secure thickness before ice
fishing is allowed!
