Second Nature Sport Fishing Charters

If you want to experience fishing Lake Ontario, it’s tough to beat the combination of a premier service with the great local knowledge that Second Nature Sport Fishing Charters offers!

Captain Eric King invites you to join him for a fishing adventure on board his 31’ Penn Yan. She was put on the water in 2000 and fully refurbished in 2018 – a time-tested design with all the modern amenities. You’ll glide across the lake with ease, thanks to the twin 270 HP Crusader engines. Her spacious back deck and comfortable cabin are able to hold 6 anglers fishing at the same time, so bring your entire fishing team with you.

Capt. Eric will take you after all of the A-listers of Lake Ontario. Brown, Lake, and Rainbow Trout can be hooked up, as well as the famous Ontario Salmon species: Chinook, Coho, and Atlantic Salmon. You’ll have frozen bait ready for you when you board, as well as a wide range of lures, spoons, flies, and tackle.

You should pack some snacks and drinks to keep your energy up between battles. Make sure to get your fishing license ahead of time, so you can start your trip without a hitch.

If you’re not sure what you want to go after on Lake Ontario, or maybe you know exactly where and when you want to fish, Capt. Eric offers a fully customizable trip.

Treat yourself by booking a thrilling experience on Lake Ontario. You deserve it!
