Trusting Your Instinct

Trusting Your Instinct

Have you ever prospected a “fishy” spot and been skunked?  Your gut tells you that there should be a quality fish, but your fishing history yields nothing.  Over the past eight years, I’ve been skunked at a particular “fishy” spot in the Thousand Islands.  It’s...

The smallmouth that got away

We spent a long weekend up in the Thousand Islands.  It was a final “hurrah” before the start of school.  It’s always interesting to fish that region in early July, then again in late August.  Invariably, the fishing is always better early season.  The fish are in shallow water...
Windy in the Thousand Islands

Windy in the Thousand Islands

It was a breezy trip to the Thousand Islands.  It was tough to anchor or maintain an accurate position.  On the day we departed, it was blowing a steady 20 mph plus and whitecaps were racing around the bay.  Over the years I’ve found that the degree and direction of wind influence where I locate...

Thousand Islands Bounty

The last few years I’ve spent my July 4th weekend in the Thousand Islands.  My wife’s family has a wonderful cottage on the water.  Each trip I learn more about the region, especially the fishery.  Every year I experience quality fishing and this year was most productive.  Even better,...

Thousand Islands Angling – July 4 to July 11

I took my Tribalance kayak to the Eel Bay /Wellesley Island Region of the Thousand Islands in early July and enjoyed a pleasant week of fishing and family time.  Many days I fished 3-4 hours, exploring various flats, rocky points, drop offs, weed lines, tiny rock islands and other visible structure....
