Fishing is a tricky business. Either you do, or you don’t.
Lucky or not?
Today, we went fishing in the Limfjord Canal, in Aalborg Denmark. The temperature yesterday was around 22 C., but today is a cooler 10 C., with a cold wind blowing from the North.

The fellows at the dock, who proceeded us had caught some Herring, which is common in early May in Denmark.
They were pretty much finished, when we arrived, leaving us all alone to try our luck. Other than a cold chill, we were not that lucky, each having caught one Herring, but which were thrown back due to their small size.
My son then managed to catch a nice Garfish, which is shown here:
I was determined to catch something as well, so I continued to stand there in the cold wind, until….
I caught 3 Herring on the same line. Fishing for Herring is done using a series of hooks, without bait on them.
For adults aged 18+ a yearly fishing license is required, while those young people under 18 is free to fish in areas designated to do so.
My son is a bit more adept at getting things ready than his Old Man, who is not as cold tolerant, as he used to be!
Our dog sat in the car and waited patiently until we were finished:
He seemed happy enough to smell the fish on our hands, and sit in the warm sun in his box.
The views towards Aalborg were nice as well:
Traditionally, when we are finished with the day’s events, we usually purchase an ice cream for each of us. It might have looked like this one here:
And it did, for a while anyway…..
