|Biggest pike of season 2018 caught by our vistors from Lithuania.|
First half of September was the best for catching big ones in nearby waters of our cottage this year. After extremely hot summer air and water temperature get colder and we had great catches both for our cottage vistors and clients taking part to my guided fishig trips. I do proudly present fishing heroes of our cottage vistors of September 2018.
|Great zander caught on Lake Saimaa in September 2018. This family from Moscow caught the biggest zander of the 2018.|
I come to the cottage Jokiniemi for the second time and if You really like fishing,this is the right place to be. All You have to do,is to come to the small town of Savonranta,in the heart of the lake region of Finland,just 140 km from the border.
Actually,I started my experience in a small lake near the cottage.It is not so deep,but right in the morning I got one perch and two small pikes,which I released,as the most thrilling thing for me is to notice that someone is on the other end of spinning.
The second day of my journey was highlighted with pike struggle.It happened after morning cofe,just when I reached the middle of the small lake by the boat.The weather was perfect and after the second casting,I realized several pulls.It was quite strong,I believed,that something big is under water.During fighting,my spinning bent,like a wheel and two times the reel was unwounding into opposite direction.Soon,I saw a fish.Very nice,strong pike was exhausted and slowly moving along the boat.

|Softbait spinning 27 September 2016|
Yesterday (Sept. 27) I was able to do some softbat spinning alone in our cottage bay. I did catch 12 pikes, 20 to 25 perches and one zander by softbait spinning during a 5 hour time. I also lost another zander appr. the same size as in this picture. My only and biggest zander landed had length of 59,5 cm and it weighed 1.8 kg.
The season of fall colours starts about mid-September and ends mid-October. During this period it is also possible to catch very big perches up to 1 to 1.5 kg on our area of Lake Saimaa. Small fish like ciscos are forming big flocks and they are also starting their spawning period in shallower water areas of 6 to 8 meters deep. Because of that predators like perches are hunting them in those areas, which makes fishing very effective.
For summertime fishing, generally the best weeks are the last week of July and the first week of August. Normally those weeks are either very warm or hot, which means that if there are rainy days, they are also warm. During the last 3 to 4 years and summers those weeks have been the best in terms of the number of caught fishes. This period has also been very good for catching zanders near our cottage. Zander prefers warm or hot weather, which make catching easy.
