Angler's Insight

This stretch of the St. Lawrence River is one of the premier bass fisheries in all of North America and a big reason why Bassmasters Elite has selected it this year for a Major. The options are unlimited here to a big satchel of victory. Take the gamble and make the run to the big lake for giant wolf pack Smallies? Stay and play in the river with serious numbers of smallmouth or flip and pitch the slow water for giant buckets in the shickanes? This will be one of our most exciting events! Can't Wait!
