Screwy Louie's Fishing Charters

Screwy Louie’s Fishing Charters is based in Fair Haven, New York just a short ride west of Oswego. Launching out of Little Sodus Bay, the company takes anglers of all ages and skill levels to the beautiful waters of Lake Ontario.

Join Captain Brendon and let him take you to where the fish are. If you want to go out during the spring months, you can get your hands on Brown Trout, Chinook Salmon, Lake Trout, and Steelhead. Later in the season, you will be able to add Smallmouth Bass and Coho Salmon to the list.

The waters of Fair Haven are home to trophy Trout and Steelhead and can easily fill your cooler with some outstanding catches. Once you are done fishing, your catch will be cleaned for you so that you could taste it for dinner later.

Screwy Louie’s Fishing Charters will take you out aboard a 30’ Tiara boat. Built in 2000, the vessel comes powered by two 320 HP Crusader engines and can cruise at a top speed of 35 knots. The boat is rigged with electronics and top-notch gear and has plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. There is also a toilet on board for your maximum comfort.

All trips come with the use of rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks and don’t forget to purchase a fishing license before the trip.
