Active Fishing in Finland! – Ice Fishing

If you’re looking for a top-notch ice fishing experience, then join Active Fishing in Finland for an incredible adventure! Your guide for the day, Saku Koukonen, is an expert ice fisherman with years of experience fishing the frozen lakes of Finland. He caters his business to everyone, from beginner to pro, and he invites you and your family to break your wintertime monotony and join him for a fun day of ice fishing!

You’ll be trying your hand at a new, popular form of ice fishing, called Ismete. Your guide will use an electric drill to pierce the thick ice and provide a 1 meter-long rope with bait on the end of it. Saku will monitor the fish activity using his fishfinder in order to put you on a plethora of freshwater gamefish.

Your main targets on this trip include Zander, Northern Pike, Perch, and Trout. You’ll spend 2 days fishing for these species and more. You’ll have 3 hours on the first day, being guided by Saku, and then the remainder of the day is all yours!

By the next day, you’ll already be familiar with Ismete ice fishing, so you can spend the whole time perfecting your skill with the rope or take out the old rod and reel. You’re on your own so it’s up to you! Each trip accommodates up to 10 guests, so invite the whole family or a big group of your fishing buddies and get ready to catch loads of fish.

State-of-the-art rods and reels, as well as lures and dead bait, are provided and included in the price. Chairs and rope are supplied as well. Feel free to bring some sausages and other meat to throw on the fire and enjoy a relaxing barbeque while you fish. Be sure to dress warmly as well; a jacket, snow pants, a hat, and a few extra layers.

Last but not least, remember to purchase your fishing license online before the trip and everything else will be taken care of. Join Active Fishing in Finland and get ready for an incredible adventure of ice fishing!

About the Captain

Saku Koukonen
Pieksämäki, Finlandia
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.
