Guided perch fishing techniques

We offer a variety of perch fishing  techniques, something for all circumstances. The choice depends on your preferences, the season and the location.


The most basic and effective technique for perch fishing in Finland, all year around. Especially important when the fish are in deeper water, but works fine in shallow as well with weedless rigs. Usage of sonar technology is in a key role.


Maybe the most exciting and fun way to catch perch, especially when the perch is feeding in the surface. Cranckbaits are also great search baits for perch. Also spinners, spoons, blade baits, etc. should not be forgotten.


Fun but a bit more advanced strategy to catch perch. Works best in shallow waters, weed beds, etc, when the perch has already been located. We currently don’t have fly fishing sets for perch but you can bring your own.


Can be effective technique to find perch in larger areas, especially for big pelagic perch. Also the most relaxed fishing technique.
