Guided pike fishing techniques

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


The most basic technique for pike fishing in Finland. Especially popular in the shallow areas of the archipelago. We use medium to heavy weight rubber baits, jerk baits, wobblers, spinnerbaits, etc.


Effective technique to find pikes in large areas, typically in deeper water. Common strategy in Lapland. Especially fun way to chase for big pikes with up to 1kg mega sized baits.


Fun strategy to catch pikes, especially in shallow waters, weed beds, etc. Most effective in the cold waters, when slow retrieve is the key to success. We currently have one fly fishing set for pike only.


In the most modern and technology driven fishing method for pike, we use Garmin LiveScope sonar to locate big pikes. We can then deliver the bait to the fish directly, and see its live reaction on the screen. Super exciting and sometimes nerve wrecking.


The down-size method, that sometimes is the key to catch pikes when no other technique works. Sensitive rods make the fights really fun. Often gives best numbers, and even big ones can take small jigs well (largest so far 12,6kg). As a bonus you can catch zanders and perch with jig.


Mostly used in winter time from the ice, but also possible from the boat. We are experienced in this method, having caught several +10kg pikes with bait fishing technique.
