Join Joe Fitzgerald on a quest to discover all the sportfish of Nova Scotia. From the beloved Brook Trout to the behemoth Bluefin Tuna, meet an incredible array of species, get helpful tips, and discover the true reason for angling.
From native brook trout and Atlantic salmon to introduced species like smallmouth bass and chain pickerel, Nova Scotia’s waters teem with fish. Smelt, shad and striped bass rush upriver from the sea each year. Eels, catfish and sturgeon prowl lake bottoms and brown and rainbow trout cruise estuaries. In the surrounding ocean, huge schools of mackerel, pollock, and squid patrol the coastline, flounder and cod negotiate the seafloor, while bluefin tuna and sharks lurk offshore.
Herbert Hoover said,
“Next to prayer, fishing is the most personal relationship of man.”
Nova Scotia offers countless opportunities to establish that relationship. An incredible array of species, venues and fishing methods that foster the quest for escape, adventure and quiet contemplation that angling provides.
The perfect place for Chasing Pisces.
