I can also make custom arrangements if anyone so desire. Send an email or call if you want a custom arrangement and we will see if it is feasible.

 

Other information on fishing

 

We fish mainly at Eckerökortet license water. And we follow the rules there, and everyone must have a fishing license. We can also fish in other waters, but then the guest must also acquire a fishing license for those waters.

 

General rules and minimum sizes.

 

Fishing permits are available here (only in swedish)

Or you can buy a fishing license from me at the start of the tour. A day pass costs 10 € and has to be paid in cash.

 

Map of Eckerökortet and some other areas around Åland.

 

Note that in all of Åland it is forbidden to use spinning and any fishing with a lure from land from 15.4 until 15.6. This does not apply to fishing in freshwater.

 

During the same period, many spawning grounds are protected, and therefore it may be hard to fish for pike and perch during this time.

 

It is during a tour allowed to kill and bring home fish. But only if they are of minimum size for species that have minimum size. And pikes over 8 kg and perch over 1kg must be returned.

 

It is not allowed to take more than one fish from the salmon family and 2 pikes per angler. Other species have no quota, but you may never take more than one can eat yourself. Selling fish caught with the tourist fishing license is prohibited.

 

Note that killed fish must be recovered, and during the summer, the guests who wish to bring home fish will need a cooler bag or equivalent since the fish spoils very quickly in the summers heat.
