I have been fishing Lake Ontario all my life. I started fishing for Smallmouth Bass. Then with the stocking of the Salmon and Trout I gave it a try. I found out that there were many big trophy fish to be caught on Lake Ontario. I caught my limit of fish on a daily basis. People would see the success I had when I got back to the dock. They kept asking me if I was a charter captain. That's when I decided to get my USCG LICENSE in 1988 and started my own business. Now I enjoy watching my clients catching the fish and having fun doing it.
