Gaspé : Chasing Striped Bass
Mid-July 2016. The weather is shady, the van is packed. We hit highway 20 East, a road we’ve taken many times before with the beautiful rivers of the Gaspé and their mythic salmon on our minds. But this time is different, this time we’re on our way for the first edition of the Bar Fest in Carleton-Sur-Mer. We’d been thinking about this event for a couple years now, and finally seeing it come to life thanks to Gaspé Fly‘s solid help was like a dream come true. Designed to gather the peninsula’s angler community during a chill weekend were music, fishing and good vibes would be the main focus, the event relied on the newcomer of the Baie-des-Chaleurs area, the striped bass.
