Over The Rail Sportfishing

Come join Captain Justin aboard Over The Rail Sportfishing’s 26 foot Penn Yan fishing machine! Whether you are an avid angler or it is your first time holding a pole, Captain Justin strives to provide you with a trip of a lifetime!

Start the adventure on a 26’ Penn Yan 265 Pro Hunter equipped with an autopilot with kicker motor, Garmin GPS electronics, and Okuma gear. There’s enough room for 6 anglers to join, so bring your loved ones with you. The boat features a cooler, navigational electronics, and a toilet for your convenience.

Trolling is the name of the game when it comes to Lake Ontario Trout and Salmon fishing. During the months of April and May, the primary targeted species is the Brown Trout and Lake Trout. These months provide excellent angling opportunities for world-class trophy caliber fish. The warming waters of the shorelines provide quick and consistent action for a range of species. It is not uncommon to catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Smallmouth Bass, or Salmon while trolling in the spring.

As the season progresses and the water warms, the action during the month of June switches to Trophy Lake Trout as all anglers await the thermocline to set up and the Salmon to follow. From July, thru September the name of the game is Salmon. Trolling with large "spreads" of rods, and using all the latest techniques and tackle, you will not have a shortage of King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, and Steelhead.

In September the game changes to back bay fishing in the harbors around Henderson Harbor and Chaumont Bay for Northern Pike, Pickerel, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch!

Over The Rail Sportfishing looks forward to seeing you on the water making memories and providing you with a trip or catch of a lifetime!
