It may be the smallest of the Great Lakes, but Lake Ontario’s fishing is second to none. Step aboard Reel Adventures Sport Fishing and see for yourself.

Captain Tom Pearse is a local fishing nut. Fishing since the age of 12, he always wanted to run fishing charters. Now living the dream, he combines his winter teaching job with running charters in summer. He can’t wait to welcome you aboard to learn all about Great Lakes fishing.

The 36’ Tiara boat is the ideal vessel to navigate these waters. Strong and sturdy, she also boasts plenty of room for up to 6 anglers. Fitted with a cabin, you’ll also have use of a kitchen and toilet, so you’ll have nothing to worry about when on board. Capt. Tom will provide free water and snacks, but feel free to bring anything else you may want during your day out.

I have been fishing my entire life. I started on the tributaries of Lake Ontario when I was 12 years old. I remember watching the charter boats leave Sandy Creek harbor and thinking that would be the coolest job in the world. At the age of 18 I purchased my first boat and started fishing the Great Lakes. I have fished Lakes Erie and Ontario for over 25 years. I teach in the winter and while working on my Administrative degree I realized I would never be happy working in a school but outside of the classroom. So I shifted gears and with the support of my beautiful wife, I earned my Captain's License and started doing charters. Now I continue to teach Science through the school year and spend my summers on the waters of Lake Ontario hunting down and catching King Salmon.
