Active Fishing in Finland!

Come visit the “Land of a Thousand Lakes” and join Active Fishing in Finland for an action-packed adventure! Your guide for the day, Saku Koukonen, is a native to the Finnish Lakeland and an expert in a range of techniques. His services cater to anglers looking to go after the country’s top freshwater gamefish, as well as beginners who are just getting started.

Your boat for the day is a 19’ Buster XXL aluminum fishing boat. She comes with cutting-edge navigational technology and top-quality fishing gear. This includes GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, downriggers, and outriggers. There’s also a multimedia system on board for you to listen to your favorite tunes while you fish.

You and 5 other guests will have the opportunity to try out a range of techniques, from trolling to handlining. Your main target species include Northern Pike, Zander, Salmon, Trout, Perch, and more!

While trolling, you’ll utilize the boat’s outriggers, running up to a dozen lines at once. You can also try jigging, which is a fun way to bring in a variety of fish. Casting lures is also a great option for targeting Pike, one of the most exciting and aggressive lake species out there.

You can pick any one of the techniques or try all of them, depending on the time of year. You’ll have top-quality Penn and Daiwa rods and reels, as well as a variety of lures, including jerkbaits, spoons, flies, jigs, spinnerbaits, and many more. Catch cleaning and filleting services are also included in the price of the trip.

All you need to do is purchase your fishing license online before the trip, bring extra layers of clothing, and come ready to fish. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks or let your guide know in advance and he’ll prepare some nibbles at an extra cost.

Everything else will be taken care of so that you and your family have the most enjoyable experience possible. Get ready for some “Active Fishing in Finland” and join Saku Koukonen for an exciting day of lake fishing!

About the Captain

My passion for fishing has come from my dad, who took me to fish when I was just a few years old. When I was a child or a youngster, fishing was much more interesting than going to discos or parties. When it comes to different fishing techniques, trolling is closest to my heart. I have trained at it actively since the mid-1990's. I was only 10 years old when I participated in a trolling competition for the first time.
