Hooked on Niagara – Lake Erie

Hooked on Niagara is a fishing charter that can take you on a trip anywhere in the area. Captain Lyle offers adventures on Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and the Niagara River. Check out his other listings and choose the right tour for you.

He’s been fishing these waters for years and has lots of success, both as a guide and as a tournament competitor. In 2018, he earned the King of the Lake Fall title by winning one of the biggest Salmon tournaments.

Hop aboard a 20’ Lund boat that easily accommodates up to 3 guests. This aluminum boat has a wireless Minn Kota trolling motor and a 200 HP Yamaha engine. In case you need to get to your fishing spot fast, this boat can do it. You’ll also find a live bait tank, trolling gear, and navigational electronics on board.

Lyle promises a memorable fishing experience for guests on Lake Erie. The lake supports diversity in fishing opportunities including incredible Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, and Perch. This past year saw record catches of Walleye - and this year should be even better!

The captain will provide you with professional Shimano and Daiwa rods and reels, and prepare lures and live bait. He’ll fillet the catch and pack it for you, so you can look forward to a delicious meal afterward.

Just purchase your fishing license before the trip and pack some snacks and drinks.

After a few hours with Capt. Lyle on the boat, you’ll be Hooked on Niagara!

I have always had a passion for fishing and Hooked on Niagara Guide Service allows me to share this beautiful area with my guests. Apart from the great fishing, the Niagara area is a beautiful place to spend a day on the water. I have always loved fishing tournaments too. In 2018, my team and I won the King of the Lake Salmon tournament event against some of the best Salmon anglers on Lake Ontario. I am a dedicated angler and host that make sure my guests leave my boat happy!
