The ember of Nick Coppola's fervor for fishing began years ago. While Nick studied biology in college, this passion bloomed into a full-blown vocation as he spent summers scouring the rivers of Southwest Montana. Since those early moments wading in the tides, Nick has become a New York State–licensed guide, continuing to catch trophy salmon, steelhead trout, brown trout, and runaway goldfish as the head of Slickwater Adventures.
Throughout two seasons each year, Coppola and his staff lead anglers of all levels into some of the East Coast's most picturesque habitats, including the Ausable River during summer months and the eastern Lake Ontario tributaries during winter. No matter the location, Coppola encourages participants to customize each adventure to their specific goals, whether they are honing existing skills, learning basic techniques, or luring in trophy catches with tricks and well-timed eyewinks.
The two ships of Lake George Shoreline Cruises offer a new way to have a romantic dinner or even learn a little history about Lake George, whose picturesque majesty has earned it the nickname the Queen of American Lakes. Aboard The Adirondac, up to 400 customers can grab a beverage at one of its two bars and head to the second-deck atrium, which is exposed to the sunlight during the day and stars in the evening.
