Fishing Xperience

Captain Kari Koivisto and Fishing Xperience welcome everyone interested in sport fishing in Helsinki. Whether you are an experienced fisherman or a first-timer with the rod, Kari will tailor the right fishing trip for you. He has lived and fished in the area for decades and is, therefore, an experienced guide to show you fishing in the Helsinki area. Fishing in an urban downtown landscape is an experience in itself!

You’ll be fishing from a 19’ boat made by Lund Impact. She’s powered by a Mercury 115 HP engine, which provides a comfortable and stable ride. The boat also includes quality electronics such as sonars, navigators, and a bow trolling motor. Two large livewells keep your catch fresh if you take it for food. The fishing tackle on the boat is Daiwa high quality fishing rods and reels.  Boat is also packed with lures for every situation.

In Helsinki, you can mainly fish for Perch, Zander, Pike and Sea Trout. You’ll usually fish for seasonal species, but it’s also possible to focus on a particular species regardless of the season. You get to take the fish for food and the captain will clean and get the fish ready for cooking. All species you can catch are tasty for eating!

You’ll need to purchase your fishing license and bring some snacks. Make sure to dress warm enough, especially during the winter season.

I started fishing when I was 6 years old. My father is a huge fan of fishing and he started to take me out with him. First I started angling from the bank and ice fishing during the wintertime. Later on, I started to compete on both angling and ice fishing. Nowadays it's mainly predator fishing from the boat and bringing customers out for fishing. I still like ice fishing a lot and that's is still the way of fishing during the wintertime. Fishing is a lifestyle for me and I like to do it in several different ways.
