People have their different ways of dealing with stress. For Joe Schmelzinger, fishing with his family in the Thousand Islands is his ticket to getting away from his life problems. Every year, he embarks on a fishing trip to wash away tension and stress. He started this family trip since the birth of his daughter. They usually enjoy the journey and return with plenty of fish to show their friends and neighbors. This year, it was the same story only that a surprise was waiting for them right there in the lake of the Thousand Islands.
