Our latest adventures are trips to the 1000 Islands region, which is part of the St. Lawrence River in northeastern New York. We've previously kept this to ourselves, but due to popular demand are now offering package deal trips on a private island with 3 fully equipped cottages available for your stay. The island is located on a large bay off the main river and is always protected from rough water, allowing us to fish in almost any kind of weather. You'll enjoy the picturesque views of one of the Northeast's most beautiful areas as well as the fantastic fishing. We have 3 boats available, each operated by licensed, experienced guides. You don't have to be an experienced angler -- if you can cast, you will catch fish! (If you can't cast -- we'll teach you!) 10 to 20 pike with bass and an occasional muskie are common!

Unlike traditional "party boat" style trips common in this region (large groups of anglers, anchoring or drift fishing with bait), our custom trips are never boring! We are continually on the move to find the best action on any given day or to locate different species. We can also accomodate your specific interests or special needs. These trips are the next best thing to a Canadian fly-in trip for a fraction of the cost, time and hassle! To view photos of the island, click here.

Other inland water trips that we run are conducted on the Finger Lakes, located in the west-central region of New York State, and on the bays of Lake Ontario's south shore. These areas are capable of production exceptional fishing. In April and early May, the bays can offer fantastic pike action. Weather permitting, we can also fish the open waters of Lake Ontario, close to shore, for great small mouth bass fishing.
