Fishing in finland (ENGLISH) / Ice thickness
« on: November 07, 2019, 10:47:41  »
Hello all
I am planning another trip to Finland for some nerve-relaxing ice fishing, but due to very busy schedule at work i was wondering if the ice is still there on the first week of April?
I wouldnt want to come to pre-booked mökki only to discover that ice has melted.

So is there maybe some good site i could check ice thickness statistics for previous years. http://wwwi3.ymparisto.fi/i3/tilanne/fin/Jaanpaksuus/Jaanpaksuus.htm only show for the moment but i would be interested in historical data.

So i would apreciate on any tips regarding ice thickness - what date is the earliest the ice has melted and maybe what lake? (I know further i go to north, the longer the ice will be there). Last year i was at Nilakka at around 20. march and the ice was still 40+cm which was nice, but i remember more south i saw more open water when driving there.

So based on your experience:
1. Would it be smart idea to come ice-fishing in first week of April?
2. If no, what would be the latest you would still risk to go yourself? (knowing you have to pre-book mökki atleast month ahead).
3. Any good lake recomenndations for either first week of April or earlier (maybe maximum 500km from Helsinki)?

Fishing in finland (ENGLISH) / Juurusvesi fishing permits
« on: January 09, 2017, 22:13:20  »
Hello, i am planning to come fish in Finland in February and already booked a house at the lake Juurusvesi (Pelonniemi). Now i am looking online and i am not sure if i need some special permits to fish there or not? I only plan to ice fish but dont want any trouble from inspectors, if needed i can buy the permit also, but most pages say i dont need one for ice fishing.
ALso maybe there is some page where i can see from map, if i need a special permit or not in any lake on the map?
Also are there are some lakes nearby (max 100km from there you would recommend, i really love pike and perch but if there is some special trout places nearby i would mind those either ;) ).

I sure hope that Juurusvesi is not closed for fishing for winters...
