Phantom Sportfishing – Great Lakes

Phantom Sportfishing offers top service for fishing trips on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. Start your adventure with a guide who’s seen it all! Captain Franky started fishing in Italy when he was a kid and continued his journey around the world with a professional crew. He decided to settle in Canada and explore the beauty of The Great Lakes. Now, he’s ready to share some of this fishing magic with you.

You’ll be fishing on a 34’ Pursuit offshore fishing yacht, with full amenities for families and groups of up to 8 anglers. These include a bathroom, AC and a heated cabin. Brought down from Florida to give you a full offshore fishing experience, it’s the only vessel of its kind on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Why settle for anything less?

Trolling is the best way to cover large portions of water and target larger species of fish that are sure to put a smile on your face when 500 feet of line spool off a reel. Go after Coho and Chinook Salmon, Walleye, or different types of Trout - Steelhead, Brown, and Lake.

The crew will cover your fishing equipment and clean the catch. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license and prepare some snacks and drinks.

Phantom Sportfishing will do the work - you do the reeling! Join them for your next day to remember!

Growing up on the south coast of Italy in a small fishing town, fishing quickly became a way of life. After traveling around the world fishing and running crews down south on saltwater, it was time to settle down in Canada. I love nothing more than sharing my passion with people and hope you can make it out to see why we are well regarded. Service, kindness, patience, and a willingness to share our sport with any novice are why we do what we do.
