My father fished for salmon in the waters of the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Father taught me at a young age into the secrets of fishing. We went fishing in my father's boat whenever you had the time. Fishing is my passion. It is always a challenge.

Awesome trip. First, fished a bait fish. After that we put the big fish Sets ask. At the same time, more and fished a bait fish. Food was the case in the journey half way. We ate delicious Thai food. Finally, the tour captain Jari cleaned the fish, which I took with me, and I made my apartment. Regards Harri Suhonen

From the moment I phoned . Everything was set up , from the date I wanted to fish to sandwiches I wanted for lunch . I can’t fault the communication between the first phone call and the actually fishing day ,may is not high season for sea fishing in Thailand but having said that ! The captain and crew worked very hard to find us some good sport .we were picked up at about 7.30 am from hotel and Taken straight to the boat ’ a trip of about 45 minutes bought us to our first spot were we fished for some bait fish , good sport in its self on light gear , giging , once we had enough bait fish and the tide started to move we moved to a small reef to fish for long tom ( which I know as alligator gar )
With a light wait rod and 20lb line with 12”” wire trace and 3 single hooks about 1’’ apart ! First cast I was into a fish of about 1.2 m
Stayed there for about 2hours and caught 3 fish till the tide stopped ! You need a good run of water for long tom to bite ! Once tide stopped we then went on to see if we could find some King mackerel ! Put out a few live bait fish on heavy gear but no kings ! Bought lines back in only to find one had been bitten for head down , so unlucky , from there we went to a other small reef were we had a few more long tom all about 1.m long . But all in all a very good day out
Thanks to the crew
