Come and enjoy some world-class fishing on Lake Ontario - New York State’s prime fishing location with FishChopper Charters. Captain Kevin has been fishing on this lake since he was 10 years old and ran chartered fishing trips for over 20 years. This local is a go-to guy for fishing on Lake Ontario.

His 2003, 33’ Wellcraft Cruiser is the ideal vehicle for getting around the lake. It has twin 300 HP engines and can cruise at speeds up to 22 knots, making it ideal for trolling. It can hold 6 anglers and features a private toilet, a galley, and AC to keep you cool on those hot days on the lake.

Trolling trips with Captain Kevin can bring you endless excitement. In the springtime, Brown Trout and Lake Trout are the target species. If you choose to book your trip in summer or fall then expect to have Chinook and Coho Salmon after your line.

High-quality Shimano rods, reels, and tackle are provided for you. The fish that you catch can be cleaned and filleted for an ample meal to round off your action-packed day.

Before you come out for your days fishing make sure you get yourself a New York State fishing license, available for purchase online. Bring with you a cooler for the catch, food, drinks, layered clothing, and sun protection. With Captain Kevin at the helm, you’re all set for a fun-filled day on the lake.

I’ve been fishing on Lake Ontario since I was 10 years old and I always wanted to become a charter captain. After years of working in construction, I opened my own charter business. I'm passionate about teaching people about fishing and especially enjoy working with kids making my trips appropriate for people of all levels of experience. I use downrigger and dipsy diver techniques to maximize the catch. Additionally, I have copper that's up to 700 feet long to fish 150 feet in the water column. In my inventory are the most recent rods and reels, and I upgrade my drags every year.
