1,000 Islands Big Bass Challenge

Be rewarded for experiencing world-class fishing in the 1,000 Islands!

The 1,000 Islands Big Bass Challenge Canada is set to make a splash in the 1,000 Islands region on July 5 and 6, 2014. Now in its third year, the popular amateur tournament saw more than 300 anglers participate last year in the family-friendly, high-action event.

Organizer Garry Fisher said the tournament is proving to bring fishing enthusiasts together off the shores of Gananoque, Ont. to fish among the islands and along the shoals of the fabled St. Lawrence River. He notes the event’s popularity is growing exponentially because of the fun format.

“The concept is unique in that we give away cash for the biggest bass of every hour,” he said. “The action is non-stop throughout the day and it gives anglers more opportunity to net a prize fish.”

More than $500 is being awarded every hour, topped off by a $2,500 prize for the biggest fish caught during the entire two-day event. To add to the excitement, Joel Stone Heritage Park on Gananoque’s vibrant waterfront is awash in vendors, children’s activities and fishing enthusiasts for the 1,000 Islands Big Bass Challenge Canada.

Fisher said the 1,000 Islands region is the perfect place to host such a live-release event because anglers have a long history of hooking record-breaking fish in the waters of the St. Lawrence River.

Don’t let the big one get away – entice friends and family to make memories by spending a day on the water and participating in 1,000 Islands Big Bass Challenge Canada. Registration is required for the event. Find out more about how to get in on the fun at www.bigbasschallengecanada.com.
