When the water temperature rises in late spring and early summer, a lot of pike migrate to cooler water in the outer archipelago where islands and stony shallow seabed meet open sea. If you study a sea chart over this area, you find there are a lot of vast shallows with myriads of stones and islets surrounding our bigger islands. This is really Pike Kingdom during summer. Here pike thrive on burbot, herring, perch, cod and other prey fish. The stony bottoms with bladder wrack are perfect place for ambushing prey fish. This is an area that is very hard to fish from boat due to the big risk of getting the propeller and the hull damaged from stone contacts. A boat angler must concentrate on the safety of the boat, often more than on fishing. Some of the stony seabeds are just too hazardous to fish from a boat. With a fishing kayak, on the other hand, you can reach all areas and fully focus on fishing. Therefore you will catch a lot of pike.
The best combo:
A tough aluminium boat and two good fishing kayaks. Four persons. You transport the two kayaks on the boat to cover longer distances to the outer archipelago (called mother shipping). Well on the fishing area, the kayaks are launched from the aluminium boat. Then two anglers can fish from the boat and two from the kayaks.How to book
