Top 10 Baits From 1000 Islands

Fishing at the 1000 Islands for the final Costa FLW Series Northern Division event presented by Navionics wasn’t quite as easy as usual, despite the weights being solid and some mega bags being dropped on the scale. An algae bloom, a hard north wind and pressure lead to some finicky smallmouths and because of that finesse was the name of the game. Dealing with some hard to catch smalljaws? Give a few of these baits a try and you can likely put the odds in your favor. READ MORE »

Tiano Claims Co-angler Title

Catching fish from the back of the boat isn’t a big concern at the 1000 Islands where smallmouths swim around by the millions.

He sacked another 20-11 on day two to maintain the pole position and added another 15-1 on a tough day three to claim the biggest title of his career. With 59-5 overall, Tiano earned a Ranger Z175 with a 90-hp outboard and $600. READ MORE »

Presented by Navionics, the last event of the Northern Division season paid the young Rio Vista, Texas, pro $45,700 for his efforts. READ MORE »

Top 5 Patterns from the 1000 Islands - Day 2

Lake Ontario has pumped out some mega bags this week, but a forecast calling for high winds and big waves on the final day forced tournament officials to make the lake off-limits. Anglers will be able to fish the St. Lawrence River – which is more than enough water to work with – however, they won’t be allowed west of the ferry lines on the U.S. and Canadian sides of the river.

Day two of the Costa FLW Series Northern Division event on the 1000 Islands, presented by Navionics, got off to a much more pleasurable start compared to yesterday in terms of both weather and fishing.

Summer Not Over at 1000 Islands

Summer Not Over at 1000 Islands

It has been the year of the smallmouth in the Northern Division of the Costa FLW Series this season and the third and final event on the 1000 Islands will certainly showcase that. The event, which is presented by Navionics and hosted by the Clayton Chamber of Commerce, is expected to have big weights especially due to the recent results of the Bassmaster Elite Series event and the Renegade Bass Tour Thousand Islands Open held back in early August. No doubt it’ll take over 20 pounds a day to win, however, conditions aren’t as ideal as anticipated for a major smallie smackdown to happen. READ MORE »
