Finally I managed to launch my boat last weekend. It has been quite early spring this year which means early open water and no ice! This time of the year white fish fishing is very productive as white fish are coming close to shoreline to feed. White fish fishing is quite popular in southern Finland shoreline. White fish is very very good fish to eat. Me and my friend managed to land one good size white fish on our first trip of the season. Yesterday I was fishing again the same spot and I managed to land another good size fish.

We had some nice sea trout (sea run trout) fishing last saturday. Our plan was to fish white fish and perhaps do some sea trout fishing as well. We were fishing white fish from my boat when my friend spotted a feeding sea trout just close by. He landed a nice cast just near the sport and fish was on! After he landed a nice 45 cm sea trout we decided to concentrate on sea trout fishing. My friend managed to land six nice sea trouts and I managed to land only one which was nice 49 cm. All the fishes were C & R.

Fishing season in Finland is slowly starting and finally we have some open water to do some fishing! We have opened the season with Whitefish fishing. Fortunately we got something to show. Pasi got total of four fish during our three hour session. Sizes was from 300 grams to 700 grams.

Whitefish are coming to shoreline to feed with small worms. I have covered this on my earlier post

Today was official fishing season opening day for me. I was planning to go and try to catch some whitefish since it is the best time of the year to catch them. Whitefish fishing in the spring time is basically “coarse fishing” with a worm bait and spinning rod. Whitefish season starts just after the ice melts on the shores. Whitefish tend to come close to the shore when they are feeding with Red-gilled mud worms (Marenzelleria viridis) and that time is the best time to catch them.

Basically the best substitute for red-gilled mudworm is normal “earth worm” (Lumbricus terrestris).

Fishing itself is just waiting for a catch and enjoying the sunny weather.  Whitefish fishing is quite popular so very often best places are occupied by other fishermen.

Whitefish season lasts few weeks until the water temperature is too high and whitefish goes back to deeper waters.

When waiting for a catch there is some spare time to try some sea trout as well. Sea trouts are coming after the same red-gilled mud worms and small bait fish in spring time. Sea trout population here in Finland is not in very good shape but few sea trouts are catched every year on these same shores.

Usually I fish with a bombette/bombarda float and a fly.

Now it is just waiting to get my boat on the water.  It shouldn’t take more than three weeks now…lets keep fingers crossed and lets hope for some warm weathers since almost all docks are still in ice.
