|1000 Island Region - St. Lawrence River - New York
|This area has been a favorite vacation spot for over a century. The beauty
is unsurpassed. Crystal clear water and more than 1800 islands make for a
great place for relaxing. But it is the fishing that gets me excited.
I have been going here since 1991. The clear, cool waters of this area are
ideal for small mouth and large mouth bass and northern pike; big yellow
perch are also plentiful.
Usually I will stay in a 2 bedroom cottage at Hi--da-way Summer Cottages
in Alexandria Bay; however, there are several New York State
Campgrounds nearby. Camping is a less expensive alternative while here.
I am not a licensed guide in New York, but I am very familiar with the
waters and fishing in the area. With this in mind I am offering a great 2, 3
or 4 day fishing trip to my favorite spot on earth.
Alexandria Bay is 354 miles from the Bensalem PA Turnpike Access.
Typically we leave at 6:00 am and arrive in the area around 1:00 pm. We
stop for our NY fishing license, shop at the market for supplies, then check
in at our quarters. Around 3:30 pm the boat gets launched and the
A typical day starts with coffee and a light breakfast, then fishing, a break
for a real breakfast, then fishing, eat lunch on the boat while fishing and
break for supper, then fishing. The time on the water depends on
conditions and how everyone feels.
It is not unusual in May and June to catch 50 to 100 bass, etc. The
Smallies are usually bedding at this time of the year and we can do some
sight fishing. What a thrill to see a bass 25 feet below the boat and entice
them to strike.
