A tour mainly for kids from 3-10 years old, but older kids and adults with little to no fishing experience are also welcome. Fishing is done from land with simple rods that anyone can learn to use with ease. No prior experience is needed. And as long as you follow the guides instructions I guarantee that you will catch fish, and if you don't, the tour is free.
Kids are reqired to be accompanied by at least one adult per 3 children.

The tour for those who really love fishing. This tour means spending pretty much all day in the boat.

The tour includes a light lunch, dinner, sandwich and coffe/tea/soda/water with the food.

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. Kids fishing trip and ssalmon trolling does not reqire a fishing licence.
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.
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 5 kg and perch over 0,5kg 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. During the salmon fishing tours, a cooler will be provided.
