I live in the city of Montreal, which is in the Canadian province of Quebec. Canada is blessed with millions of lakes, rivers and streams, there are a few hundred thousand in Quebec alone. Living in Montreal, which is located in the Southwestern section of the province of Quebec, I also have the privilege of fishing in Ontario quite often, occasionally New York and Vermont as well.
I’ve been fishing since the age of 3, but only got into serious angling in my twenties, when I started having kids. Today, my boys all share my passion for sport fishing, I try to take them along as often as I can.
As Montreal is an island, I typically fish Montreal’s surrounding waters of the St Lawrence River (Lac St Louis, Lac St Francois) and it’s tributaries, as well as the Outaouais River (Lac des Deux Montagnes) and the Ontario portion of Lake St Francis (St Lawrence River). All are less than 1 hours drive from Montreal, great places to fish, and home of some of the hottest bass, musky, carp, and sturgeon fishing in this part of the country.
I consider myself a multi species fisherman. Whether I’m casting topwater lures for a early morning or evening bite on a calm lake, still fishing with boilies or soaked corn for carp, trolling for walleyes/muskies or night fishing for channel cats, their is nothing more that I enjoy than the soothing / calming effect of the water, interrupted only by the adrenaline rush of a hookup and the ensuing battle.
