Image #1 – Smallmouth Bass Release


About this photo: This image was taken in the Ottawa Valley region in early September 2014. Although I have many release shots of various species taken over the years, this image is my favourite.This beautiful smallmouth was so brilliantly coloured, I’m still in awe. I caught this fish while sharing the day aboard my old boat, Ruby, with a couple friends.  The pectoral fin poking out of the water looks as if this smallmouth is waving goodbye before swimming off. “Let them go, let them grow”.

Image #2 – Personal Best Black Crappie



About this photo: This image was taken in the Ottawa Valley region in April 2016. I spotted this crappie while shore fishing as it was holding on a submerged stump. This fish got my heart pumping like no panfish ever has, and I just had to get a shot at catching it. It took some time for me to work this fish into a bite and it is the first panfish to ever give me the shakes once I landed it! It measured at nearly 14-inches long! I wrote about this experience in my Kingston Whig Standard column here. It is always rewarding releasing any fish, but this one holds a special memory. Such a gorgeous fish!

Check back soon for next months print or message me to inquire about any of my other images you’d like printed on canvas.
