Hop aboard Knotlost Charters and discover just how fun Ontario fishing can be! Captain Paul Komrowski is a licensed Coast Guard Captain with a Master 50GT Licence who knows what it takes to have a hell of a day on the water.

He is a 30-year veteran on the lake and will do everything to put you on Trout, as well as beauties like Atlantic, Coho, and Chinook Salmon. Trolling is the name of the game, and you’re free to keep whatever you catch on your half day trip.

If six hours doesn’t seem enough to you, you can arrange with your captain to double that time. You will get to the top fishing spots within 30 minutes, and as soon as the fish start to bite, Capt. Paul will be by your side to help you reel them overboard.

The vessel “KnotLost” started her life as a 26’ Starcraft, and since then the captain completely rebuilt her to make her even more suitable for lake fishing. The boat is outfitted with a 320 HP Mercruiser engine and is prepped and ready to take out up to 4 anglers. She now has a nice cabin to protect you from the wind and rain, a cuddy cabin, and a clean private toilet.

Top-rate fishing Shakespeare and Daiwa gear will be waiting for you as you start your trip, so you don’t have to worry about lugging your own equipment. All you should keep in mind is bringing drinks and snacks for when you become peckish and need to keep your energy up.

Kids are welcome to join on any trip with Capt. Paul, as long as their parents are with them and they’re all excited about having the best time catching fish.

Knotlost Charters will take you out for a lake fishing expedition to remember, so bring your adventurous spirit and off you go!

I have over 30 years of fishing experience in the waters of Lake Ontario and I'm glad to share it. I was a technical diver and after many years of enjoying it, I had to scale it back because of my age. For me, fishing had been on a back burner while I was exploring shipwrecks and caves from Florida to North Canada. My love of water never left me, and since I' have a natural knack for fishing, my father suggested I turn my passion into business, and I haven't looked back since.
