Fredrik Freden is an enthusiastic and excellent angling guide who specialises in predator fishing in Sweden. Pike are his prime quarry but he also has an excellent track record with ide, asp, perch and zander. Most pike are in the teens and twenties with a number of 30’s each short season. 40 pound plus pike are there to be caught. Excellent big fish potential for these aggressive Scandinavian pike.
Fredrik has a vast knowledge on his local waters in central Sweden. Some waters are “private”, exclusive to his clients and have little to no fishing pressure. Fredrik will decide which lake and area to fish no more than a day before guiding. He considers temperature, baitfish movements and wind direction whilst selecting where to fish. You may just fish 2-4 different lakes, but they all have two things in common; they hold pike over 35lbs and take close to zero fishing pressure.
“Targeting big fish is hard but it is my passion. Big baits is one of my tools. Slow trolling with front mounted engine with four rods equipped with 500-900gr baitfish over steep drop offs is not common for a guide, and I bet I am the only one doing it. Why? Because it works. Big fish loves big baits. Last fall was fantastic, during the last eight days guiding we boated 22 fish over 100cm, 4 over 22lbs and a beast over 30lbs on top.” Fredrik Fredén (Predator guide)
To keep the fish safe and not stress any water, Fredrik will only guide 6 weeks in the spring and 6 weeks in the autumn and will never fish the same spot two days in a row. Every hotspot gets to rest at least 4 days. The rest of the year pike gets to rest and feed.
Fishing tackle and baits can be provided. Guests may bring their own tackle and lures if they wish. Fishing is both from boat and shore depending on season and location. Guest numbers are generally restricted from 2 to 4 anglers. It is possible to create a package option with some days fully guided and other days fishing on your own at recommended locations.
Fredrik has personally chosen a newly renovated, beautifully located self-catering cabin. This cabin overlooks a sheltered reed fringed bay and is ideal for 2 to 3 persons.
