St Lawrence River - Bass charter recommendation

Recommended Posts

My brother is thinking of taking my father up to A Bay /1000 islands area and taking my dad on a bass fishing charter for the day. Anyone have any experience with this or recommendations of people you have used. He is going to do some research but I told him I would post on here and see if anyone had any info.   Thanks

I’ve been mostly targeting Largemouth bass up there the last few years.  Pound for pound, they only fight about half as hard as smallmouth, but I find them just a little better eating.  

Overall, smallmouth are my favorite fish (mostly due to their fighting ability) but a change of pace is nice on occasion.  We’ve got great smallmouth fishing 30 minutes from home on the upper Niagara River and up at my in-laws Adirondack retirement home.  

My two favorite largemouth places near A-bay are Lake of the Isles in the middle of Wellesley island, across and behind Bolt Castle, and Goose bay (next bay downriver).  My immediate family has a cottage on Goose bay, so that’s been my go to spot, when gas prices have been high.  

You don’t even need a guide for the largemouth.  Just slow roll big willowleaf spinnerbaits over the weedbeds, or toss wacky works or weedless jig & craw, into the weedy pockets and edges.
