Guided Pike Fishing
Pike, as a large and fast predator, is the number one favorite of many fishermen. Our pike fishing trips mainly focus on the western Gulf of Finland. At sea, the probability of catch is good and the opportunities for large specimens are always there. The pike fishing season starts after ice breaks in the spring and continues to late autumn until ice forms again. The peak season coincides with spring, early summer and late autumn. This is also a great opportunity to catch the eternally memorable trophy pikes!
We fish for pike with spinning gear, mainly using jerk lures, wobblers, shad jigs and spinnerbaits. In the fall pike can also dive deeper, making vertical jigging a lucrative and very fun activity!

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!

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!
