If you share the same passion or are just a beginner, we invite you to contact us and share your fishing stories - we will post tips and techniques as well as pre-fishing and event reports as we make our way towards the Classic Championship and have a few laughs along the way.

Why I fish:
Growing up along the Ottawa River gave me an opportunity to fish as much as I wanted but the funny thing is I did not fish very much but when I did, it was catfish. It wasn’t until I started camping out with Jeff on Big Rideau Lake and fishing out of his Rinker bow rider that gave me the addiction of fishing. It was that very first bass I caught in the lily pads with a rubber frog that gave me the adrenaline rush that got me hooked on bass. Since that time 7 yrs ago I have not stopped fishing for bass and to this day love going out searching for the monster of all bass.

We started a few camp ground tournaments 5 years ago and from there local events and then on to Renegade Bass which has really shown us how competitive bass fishing is in Ontario. I am confident one day we will hoist up a trophy and have lots of campfire stories to tell !
