Captain
Jari Laakkonen

Member since February 2014 Pattaya, Thailand
Background
My father fished for Salmon in the waters of the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Father taught me the secrets of fishing at a young age. We would go out to cast our lines in his boat whenever we had the time. Fishing is my passion. It is always a challenge. Today, I'm running a fishing charter and I have a wonderful captain that knows all the best fishing spots in the area. I will be there to meet and greet you before you start your trip.
Techniques
Here in Thailand I like to use live bait. But when the sea is rough trolling behind island is more comfortable. High Speed Jigging is a hard work but might have a very good results. We have many artificial reefs with in 20 km distance.
