The shallow bay waters around Uusikaupunki are big pike’s playing field.
Water on the Baltic Sea coast is brackish and the most important game species are the freshwater species pike and perch.
The 1,100 km coastline also offers diverse opportunities for fishing zander, salmon, sea trout and many other species all year round. Finland’s sea areas consist of the Gulf of Finland on the coast of Southern Finland, the Archipelago Sea between the City of Turku and the Åland Islands and the Gulf of Bothnia on the West Coast. The unique archipelagos are fascinating and peaceful fishing environments with good odds of catching something.

In winter, you can find perch in shallow waters off Merikarvia.
