Night Fishing for Zander- Lake Åsnen

A Guided Night Fishing tour with a local guide on Lake Åsnen.

Discover the unique archipelago of Lake Åsnen. The lake is about 155 km², with over 1000 islands. It is a shallow lake that guarantees a rich bird life and good fishing waters.  Lake Åsnen is famous for both good pike- and zander fishing. In the summer it is fantastic to go night fishing for zander. These fishes swim closer to surface at night in order to hunt. The sunset is magical and will give you a memory for life.

We begin the boat tour in the evening. The local guide will have the boat and all the equipment ready to go, he will also give you instructions before leaving the harbour on Getnö. Everybody on board will each get a life jacket and complete fishing equipment for the tour.

The experienced guide will be navigating between the different islands in the Åsnen National Park and around the islands of Getnö. The fishing guide knows the waters like the back of their hand and will guide you to the “hottest” fishing spots. The fishing method you will be using is night trolling. The target catch is for the zander.

You will also be able to see different lake birds, like the Osprey, the Eagle, the Blackthroated diver, the Grey Heron, the Great Crested Grebe and other lake birds.  The guide will serve you “Småländsk” evening food on board.

The boat tour lasts about 4 hours and at the end of the tour,  the guide takes you back to the harbour on Getnö-Lake Åsnen Resort. After the tour you may enjoy a nice campfire if you like.
