Big Pike Adventures

Big Pike Adventures offers guided fishing trips and wildlife tours through Finland’s Turku archipelago. Join Captain Sami Laakso and enjoy fishing in one of the most beautiful places on earth!

Step aboard an 18’ Crestliner powered by a 150 HP Evinrude engine. This craft comes equipped with GPS, Fishfinder, and a MotorGuide Xi5 trolling engine to provide efficient fishing and safe transportation. Up to 4 passengers can fish comfortably aboard this boat, and children of all ages are welcome.

The Turku archipelago features roughly 20,000 islands and skerries, most of them pristine. While fishing in the midst of this breathtaking scenery you can target Zander, Perch, and Northern Pike using a variety of techniques.

You can catch Northern Pike by spinning and popping, as well as fly fishing. When it comes to Zander and Perch, jigging is the most effective method. From March to May you might also have the opportunity to bottom fish for Whitefish.

You may keep Zander that you catch, but please note that local regulations apply to the size and limit that you may possess. Catch and release fishing is encouraged.

Big Pike Adventures provides all rods, reels, and tackle, including fly fishing equipment. Every angler must bring a valid Finnish fishing license (10€ per day for each fisherman).

Come aboard today and experience all that the Turku archipelago has to offer!
