Hooked Up Fishing Charters

Hooked Up Fishing Charters wants you to join Captain Robert Hartman for a day of adventure on Lake Ontario. Armed with years of experience, he’ll do his best to make sure you have an unforgettable time on the water! These are some of the best freshwater fishing grounds in the country, and plenty of anglers come back to them year after year.

Capt. Robert’s boat is a 27’ Penn Yan Pro Hunter, recently refit and completely restored. It’s powered by a pair of 175 HP Mercruiser outboards, and also has a single Yamaha kicker engine. This is a spacious vessel with enough room for 8 prospective anglers, making it great for group trips.

This is a very productive fishery, as you’ll get to see as soon as you set sail. From King and Coho Salmon, to Brown Trout, Lake Trout or Steelhead Trout, you’re well disposed to catch all sorts of delicious fish. Lowrance and Simrad navigation electronics present on board will make sure you’re on the catch every step of the way.

You’ll be provided with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle needed for a successful time on the water. The captain will be happy to clean the catch for your convenience when you’re all done fishing. Just make sure to have a valid freshwater fishing license with you. Come on down to Lake Ontario and get hooked up for life!
