Niagara Fish Assassins Sportfishing

Niagara Fish Assassins Sportfishing invites you to team up with Captain Mark Defoy and cruise Lake Ontario in style, landing fish as you go! Capt. Mark is always confident enough to guarantee your satisfaction on the water, whether you’re an old hand at the hobby or someone just starting out.

Capt Mark has a nice spot at the St Catharines Marina with a gazebo and BBQ overlooking the marina itself. It’s just perfect for a little get-together before or after the trip.

His boat is a 40’ Searay express cruiser that runs on twin 350 HP Mercruiser engines. She’s a spacious vessel, with enough room for 8 anglers to fish in comfort. Apart from all the necessary safety and navigation gear, there’s also a vacuum toilet aboard – convenient for longer trips.

If you’re a fan of freshwater angling, Lake Ontario is definitely the place for you. With Capt. Mark’s help, you’ll become a fish assassin yourself in no time! The species you’ll be targeting here are Brown and Lake Trout, as well as Coho and Chinook Salmon.

You’ll be provided with all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need, so just make sure you have a freshwater fishing licence packed and ready. After the trip is over, the crew will clean and bag the catch for your convenience. If you’re looking for a good old time going after fish, hop on aboard now!

Captain Mark Defoy was hooked on fishing ever since going on a trip with his dad. He's been fishing all his life, and there's nothing else he'd rather be doing for a living. A big fan of Salmon fishing, he's always glad to help out any prospective angler set foot into the amazing world that's fishing. He and his team will do their best to make sure you have a memorable day on the water.
