Ylöstalo Farm is located close to one of Finland's best fishing areas making the place ideal for fishing trips and archipelago cruises. Ylöstalo Farm is situated only under 2 hours trip from Helsinki Port, without queuing to the ferries. The two simple reasons why our cottages and motorboats are so popular among Baltic catch and release fishermen.
There are a total of 7 rental speedboats (20 and 60 hp). Boats can stay just in front of the cottages or in Ylöstalo's own port, where is a slipway for the boats and a place for boat trailers, too.
For the beginners, a local fishing guide can take you through your first steps, so that soon you are experiencing the excitement of sea fishing. You will receive the right equipment and the guide will take you to the best fishing spots. And for those keen fishermen - well, you can just get on with it.
Särkisalo is famous for its big pikes. The ever-biggest pikes in Finland are caught near Ylöstalo cottages, and every year the fishermen get several over 10 kg pikes. Fishing is mostly catch and release, smaller fish are prepared for food, too. The best season for big pike at the sea area is in the spring, before the spawning period in April and May. Also autumn is good fishing season, from September to November.
Big flocks of Baltic herrings attract the pike-perches and pikes to have their meals in the sea areas surrounding Särkisalo, also in the autumn. The most important fish arts are pike, pike-perch (zander), perch, brown trout, whitefish and baltic herring.

Services for fishing groups
You can spend a rent-a-boat fishing day on the sea with your clients or staff guided by our partner fishing guide. After an outdoor day you can have a great meeting or party with lunch in our maritime party and conference facility Villa Meri. And finish the wonderful day by having a sauna with a hot tub.
If you want to get the most out of your fishing trip, we recommend that you hire a sport fishing guide, at least the first day, if you choose to stay more than one day. The fishing guides know the fishing grounds and help you to find the best spots for fishing. You are guaranteed to catch more fish and you’ll get to see more of the archipelago. Additionally you can fully concentrate on the fishing while the guide takes care of the navigation.
