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.
