South Finland Charters – Vboat

Leave the hustle and bustle of the capital behind, and explore the multitude of fishing opportunities Helsinki has to offer. South Finland Charters will show you rivers, islands, and the network of channels that offer exceptional fishing. Captain Karri Kuuttila has been fishing these waters since childhood. He knows all the best spots for a range of delicious fish, and hopes to see your face light up as you reel in a boatful.

Winding your way around the rivers and channels, you’ll need a sturdy, versatile boat. The 2018-model 15’ VBoats aluminium fishing boat is just that. She’s light enough to stay afloat on even the shallowest of waters, while also speeding off on the open waters thanks to the 60 HP Yamaha engine. Fitted with a wireless trolling motor, you’ll creep up on your unsuspecting prey getting ready to cast and attract the bite.

You’ll have a range of artificial lures at your disposal to entice your target fish, while using Abu Garcia and Shimano rods and reels to cast. Targeting Pike, you’ll wind your way up the river, popping to catch these delicious fish, while you’ll hit up the bridges to troll for Zander. If it’s Seatrout you’re after, cast off the side of the boat and get ready to reel in plenty of these monsters.

Each one of these delicious fish can be taken home, just let Capt. Karri know and he’ll even clean and prepare it for you to take back to shore. Up to 4 of you are in for an incredible day out getting back to nature with South Finland Charters. All you need to do is bring some food and drinks and get ready for a thrilling day. Stunning scenery, fresh air, and delicious fish: Come and explore Helsinki like never before!

Captain Karri has been fishing the archipelago for a decade. He was first introduced to fishing by his father who taught him the hot spots of coastal Helsinki. He started running charters in 2018 and finds no greater joy than seeing customers catch their first fish or personal best. Size matters in fishing!
