Arrived again in lake Haukivesi area, a part of lake Saimaa near Linnansaari national park. Though it has been quite wet and cold in the area, the first kayaking day of my stay was very nice and sunny.
The water level is exceptionally high this summer. Here are some pictures that show the situation the same time last year compared today.
Checked willow grass in the bay nearby to see if pikes were at home. None spotted.
Underwater video of the willow grass bay.
