Minnow Tackle Shop is proud to welcome Ben Thornton from Ben Thornton Fishing to our team!!

May 16, 2022

Ben is an avid angler who has been fishing since the age of 4. He started out fly fishing with his father for Salmon and Trout and now he throws his own hand-tied flies for all species including musky. Ben has been a member of the Saint John River Chapter of Muskies Canada for many years now and spends his summers guiding for musky and smallmouth bass.

“My favorite memory fishing happened in November, fishing all day with no sign of fish and just before calling it a day, I ended up catching my personal best 50” musky. I wouldn’t have been able to do without my friend Marlon Prince”.

Ben spends all his free time on the water and has the area of Woodstock dialled in for any and all species. Ben specializes in musky fishing now but he loves to fish for all species every chance he gets. If you want to get out and try fishing for a certain species Ben is your guy! He loves the outdoors!!

Ben is an advocate for proper fish care and handling and takes the time to show and explain how to handle the fish properly so that we will have the opportunity to catch them again in the future!

Welcome to the Minnow Family, Ben!! We look forward to having you onboard!!
