  • Multi-species Fishing on the Napanee River

    Multi-species Fishing on the Napanee River

    The Napanee River is where some of my earliest fishing experiences took place many years ago. I was born and raised in the area and still visit frequently to enjoy the multi-species fishing opportunities on the Napanee River. The River is located in Lennox & Addington County beginning at Camden Lake, passing through the communities…

  • Ice Fishing Adventure on Lake Nipissing

    Ice Fishing Adventure on Lake Nipissing

    Last weekend I ventured the furthest north I’ve ever traveled in pursuit of fish. I was super excited for this experience as it would be my first time staying in an ice bungalow and sleeping overnight on the ice! It would also be my first time fishing on massive Lake Nipissing, the third largest lake in…

  • World-Class Fall Walleye Fishing

    World-Class Fall Walleye Fishing

    Expedia.ca recently asked me about my favourite fall fishing destination. When fall rolls around, my favourite way to spend the season without a doubt is chasing the large migratory walleye on the Bay of Quinte. Located in southern Ontario between Toronto and Montreal on the northern shore of Lake Ontario, the Bay is a known…

    With summer nearly coming to an end (gasp!), Eric and I decided on a weekend trip to the St. Lawrence River for another kick at it!

    Fishing For Smallmouth Bass In Current

    Since moving to Ottawa a couple years ago, I’ve heard so much from local anglers about the fishing opportunities on the St. Lawrence River.

  • Spring Re-Cap: Steelhead, Walleye, Sheepshead, Pike, and more….

    I can’t believe that spring has already come and gone and we are now into July. I wish I could put this time of year in slow motion as it’s my favourite and it seems there’s simply not enough time to do it all. I love the chance to target a variety of species each…

  • Targeting BIG Walleye Through The Ice

    Targeting BIG Walleye Through The Ice

    After writing my last blog highlighting what I have been up to over the past few months, I thought a more in-depth article about how I am targeting walleye would be a great follow-up. There are many variables to success on the ice and in this blog I will go over my process for targeting quality migratory…

  • There’s No Such Thing As ‘Down Time’

    There’s No Such Thing As ‘Down Time’

    There’s no such thing as ‘down time’ for me. Surely there are closed seasons for certain species of fish, but there’s an abundance of species and seasons year round and I take full advantage of these opportunities. My lack of updates do not reflect the lack of fishing! Since my last post, I fished until…

    With summer nearly coming to an end, I am reminiscing about the fun times I’ve had on the water over the past few weeks. Summer is without a doubt, my favourite time of the year and I am always sad to see it go. Luckily there are so many great fall fishing opportunities, and I…
