Battle Fish Charters LLC

Battle Fish Charters is a registered Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. Owned and operated by retired army paratrooper Andrew Beaudoin, the charter specializes in giving its customers the opportunity to battle the toughest mountain fish the Adirondacks have to offer.
Depending on the length of the trip, and the species your targeting, this adventure will take you exploring various local lakes such as Lake Flower, Oseetah Lake, Upper, and Lower Saranac Lake, and Callassa Lake.

You’ll be fishing from 14’ Jackson Big Rig kayaks. Up to 12 guests can join in on all trips and fish together the whole time. The kayaks are stable, making it possible to even stand up and fish. They also feature plenty of storage room, so you’ll have everything you need for a fun and productive trip right at your fingertips. There’s also a Radisson canoe that’s great for smaller children.

Andrew has also been named cub master of the year and loves bringing the young ones along on his trips. He enjoys teaching kids how to fish since that’s what initially drew him to guiding fishing trips in the first place. The minimum age for kids is 4 and appropriate life jackets will be provided.

All the gear you’ll need to fish will be provided on the trip. You’ll be equipped with world-class Shimano and St. Croix rods, Daiwa and Samwick reels, and a variety of bait and lures to give you the best shot at the species you’re targeting.

All you should bring is food, drinks, and a valid fishing license. Also, remember to dress for the weather. On the day of your trip, show up at the meetup spot 15 minutes ahead of time. Free parking will be available.

Now if you already have a date in mind for your adventure in the Adirondacks, check the guide’s calendar for openings and book your trip today!
