World record fishing in the 1000 Islands, November 2008 saw the world's record catch & release muskie caught just minutes from Gananoque in the 1000 Islands. Northern pike, bass, walleye, perch, and muskie, the St. Lawrence River has it all. Rent a boat, bring your own boat, or take a guided fishing charter with an experienced fisherman. Gananoque and the 1000 Islands area has many waterfront cottages and cottage resorts that have launch ramps and docking as well as boat rentals, or stay at one of the many hotels, motels, inns, or B & B's and take a  guided fishing trip where all the equipment is provided. Spend a day or week you will never forget in the 1000 Islands.
