The fishing scene around the cottage

Niagara County is well-known as a fishing hot-spot, and the cottage in right in the middle of the action.  In fact, some folks like fishing right out in front of the cottage!  Perhaps it has to do with the seawall out about a hundred feet, which attracts the minnows, that brings the big guys around.  However, Mike's group (shown below) tells me that the three-mile buoy (known as the "bar," where it starts getting deep) is the hot-spot in early Spring, and that the good-catching moves Eastward as the season progresses.


The cottage is just two miles from the Fort Niagara boat ramps (near the mouth of the Lower Niagara River).


These are some great sites for more info:

Fishermen by the seawall in front of cottage.

Mike and friends after fishing the area Spring 2006, these guys aren't going away hungry! : ) (cottage is in the background).

Mikes group by the bank with the catch of the day (King Salmon). Cottage has a 24" pan for the firepit, but these guys are pushing our capacity!!! : )

2007: the Welland Canal was a favorite fishing spot this year.

Out by the bank of the cottage (on the way to the firepit?).

Out on the boat, the guys really had their hands full on this trip!

If they run out of gas, they just get more fish on the lines and dangle bait in front of them for a free tow! What, another fish story you say?

At the Fort Niagara launch, two miles West of the cottage.


2009: these guys (from Vermont) won GRAND PRIZE in the LOC DERBY! 


Here are some prize catches from brothers John, James, and Joe..., they're majorly tipping the (fishing) scales too!
