Our good friend Yukka Leno reports that ice is clearing out in the Sea of Finland, Olin Archipelago. He is probably one of the first anglers to get his boat out to chase tasty sea trout.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Yukka when we filmed a 1 hr. TV special on the creation of the famous Rapala lures and also filmed a 1/2 hr. trophy Pike TV show where he was my guide. Yukka loves to ice-fish for pike & trout and open-water fish for both sea-run Brown and Rainbow trout and of course he loves to use Rapalas to catch them!
