Fishing with worm
That’s the most comfortable way and very easy. You angle either with the float or with the sinker. Worms or maggots are available in any angle-shop in Norway or you dig it up yourself. BUT – please find out, before you start digging, where it is permitted. It might be private ground.
Fishing with artificial baits
Small spinner, spoons, shad or wobblers are to be used here. With shads up to 5cm one is on the safe side. Many colours are worthy of consideration. Shads in trout pattern are always a good choice, but also brown colours are successful and something like “fire-tiger” should always be at hand.
Those who are targeting real big fishes may also use big shads, although there will be less bites. The same applies for the use of wobblers, big bait-big fish! Standard are wobblers of about 5cm, primarily in trout design, popular are also sinking models. However, a “fire-tiger” should not be left out here as well!
In order to throw these little wobblers or shads properly, the rod should be accordingly balanced . A spinning rod as used for catching bass is the right choice here plus a small spinning reel with a light braided or monofilament line. Thickness of the monofilament line is 0.20mm and for the braided one 0.08mm.
The depth, in which the fishes stay, can be found out by trying it out. The lakes are often quite deep and the shores are sloping very steeply. If one knows shallows ore elevations within casting range, the success of a good catch will increase. The fishes trail along in the free water as well.
