South Shore, Nova Scotia

South Shore, Nova Scotia

Going by boat from Lunenburg to the LaHave River is a historic journey. Despite a few small well-marked hazards in Lunenburg Bay, Long Shoal and the aptly named Shingles, once you are on the western side, the coastline is clear of obstructions. This allows a good view of what are known as The Ovens, a spectacular series of caves in low cliffs. Now a natural park and tourist attraction, the Ovens were home to more than 1,000 workers after gold was discovered in 1861.

Is fishing an art or a science? Perhaps a little of both. The deft art of snaking a large, flashy spoon or spinner through water cabbage in search of the predatory northern or muskie takes skill and patience.
