Started fishing 36 years ago. On holiday in Finland with my parents I caught my first pike and from then on wanted to catch big pike. Still I stayed allrounder until now and enjoy catching other fish as well. Concerning predatory fish I had very intense times hunting zander and perch, too. Had the opportunity to fish for predators in quite a lot of countries such as the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Croatia, Ireland, Spain and Austria. With pike I primarily fish big lakes, casting and trolling open water. In recent years I enjoyed the thrill of pelagic vertical fishing as well.
