Operating out of Hamlin, New York, Silver Fox Charters offers professional and exciting fishing trips on the legendary Lake Ontario. Captain Scott Bengsch has been a very successful Salmon and Trout fisherman on the lake for the past 35 years. He’s been running charters on Lake Ontario for the past 11 years and takes great pride in having lots of returning customers.
He invites you for a lake fishing adventure aboard his 27’ Penn Yan offshore sportfishing boat. It can take up to 5 anglers fishing at the same time and comes powered by a 350 HP MerCruiser Fuel Injection MPI engine. It also features a private restroom, beds, downriggers, a livewell, and an array of professional marine electronics.
Your trip will start from the East Fork Marina, where you’ll meet the captain at the boat. He’ll introduce you to all the safety gear onboard, and then you’ll set sail. You’ll be going up to 10–15 miles offshore, but this depends on the season and the bite. Sometimes there’s fish very near the marina, and sometimes you’ll need to take a longer ride out before getting to a perfect spot.
Your primary targets will be Chinook, Coho, and Atlantic Salmon, as well as Steelhead, and Brown and Lake Trout. Expect to do some fun trolling and the captain showing you all the tricks of the trade.
He’ll also provide top-notch fishing gear by Daiwa, lures, and catch cleaning, so tips for him and the first mate are more than welcome. Feel free to bring sneakers or sandals, sunglasses, hats, drinks, food, and a cooler.
Silver Fox Charters will take care of everything else and make sure you have an incredible time on the water!
