Suspicious Lines Charters

Suspicious Line Charters offers fishing trips on Lake Ontario. The company is based in Sodus Point, New York. If you want to catch some of the biggest and strongest Salmon and Trout – this is a great choice.

Take a ride aboard a 24’ Rampage boat, which comes powered by a 350 Mercruiser engine. It can comfortably take up to 4 people and is rigged with navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio. The vessel is equipped with downriggers and an anchoring system and there is also a toilet on board for your maximum comfort.

Beginner to seasonal angler to a record seeker – everybody is welcome to join the captain on a day out. You will target the trophy fish of Lake Ontario, King Salmon, or carefully reel in a jumpy Steelhead. Or chase Brown Trout – a great fighting fish that never give up, and Lake Trout.

Salmon fishing is the best late summer into the fall, Brown Trout is usually targeted in spring through early summer, and Lake Trout can be caught throughout the summer or you can run into a few on a spring trip. Trips can be arranged early in the morning and later in the afternoon so that you could enjoy a beautiful sunset and admire the coastline.

Your fishing trip will include rods, reels, tackle, and lures. The captain will clean and fillet the catch for you to take home and have for dinner afterward. A cooler to store your drinks will be provided and there is room to store food and snacks on the boat. You also need to purchase a New York State Fishing License for your trip.

Explore the wonderful waters of Lake Ontario with Suspicious Line Charters and make some great new memories!

Captain Ryan Horst fell in love with Lake Ontario when he first fished there back in 1989. Ryan was hooked for life and his passion has only grown stronger. When he started taking people out on the water, it started as a hobby, but then changed into a successful summer career. Captain Ryan's goal is to make sure his guests have the best time on the water!
