Latvian fishermen catching pikes on Lake Saimaa - October 2015
We started October with trolling and jigging for pikes on Lake Saimaa with our Latvian visitors of Fishing Cottage Jokiniemi.

The day began windy but turned sunny and calm towards the evening, letting us enjoy the fall colors and quietness of the Lake Saimaa nature.
The season of fall colors on Lake Saimaa lasts yearly from mid-September to mid-October.
You can easily find both mushrooms and berries from the wild nature of Lake Saimaa during October also.
Despite the very cold weather, our Latvian guests were able to catch 10 to 30 pikes on a daily basis. They selected some of the pikes for food and released the most. They seemed to have really enjoyed their stay at our fishing cottage, because just one week after their visit they made a new reservation for us for June 2016.
Tip from our fishing guide and company owner Mr. Jari Kayhko:
I have been fishing for over 30 years on these waters and I have learned that the period from the beginning of June to Midsummer (which will be on June 25th in 2016) is very good for pike fishing near our fishing cottage. This is due to the coldness of the waters and the end of spawning period, which makes big pikes hungry and ready for catching. There are also plenty of smaller pikes hunting in shallow water, which makes fishing very active with lots of biting and actual catches.
