Perch fishing

Guided fishing for perch

Water splashes when a school of perch chases its prey in the surface film! This is certainly a familiar sight for those travelling and fishing in the summer waters. Despite its modest size, our striped national fish is quite a respected fighter!

Our perch fishing trips are mainly directed to the western Gulf of Finland, but we also take trips to inland lakes, such as Lake Lohja. Perch can be fished throughout the open water season, but the best moments are in late summer and autumn when the perches start to flock.

Perch is fished with lightweight gear: jigs, small wobblers, and various spinner lures are most often used. Perch is a great food fish, so we strongly recommend that you take a few bigger ones to your home troops!

During the summer season, it is possible to arrange shorter four-hour trips, for example evening fishing. A shorter trip includes the same services and facilities as a full-day trip.

Evening trip price: 500 € (1-4 person, including VAT).

The price does not include the fisheries management fee, which may be payable to Metsähallitus based on the Finnish Fishing Act. Payment of the fee is mandatory if you are 18-64 years of age and will be fishing with lures or traps or crayfishing. The fisheries management fee entitles you to fish in nearly the entire country using one rod. Proceeds from the fisheries management fee are used to manage fishing waters and fish stocks as well as to monitor fishing activity and provide advice to anglers. The fisheries management fee may be paid by the customer, or we can handle the payment of the fee on the customer’s behalf. In some cases, anglers will also require the permission of the owner of a given water area.

Catering services, like lunch boxes, outdoor dining or dinners can be provided if desired. Ask for details and pricing!!

Responsible fishing

To ensure the vitality of fish stock it’s not wise to keep all the catch. We practice catch and release fishing to reduce our impact on fish populations. You can keep some fish for cooking if you like, but let’s do it moderately and selectively!
