Reel Mania Sportfishing Charters

Come enjoy world-class fishing on Lake Ontario - New York State’s prime fishing location with Reel Mania Sportfishing Charters!

Captain Mark has been actively fishing the Lake Ontario tournament trail for the last 10 seasons. In 2019, he earned the “Team of the Year” accolade. This experience is certain to provide your group with endless excitement and fish in your cooler.

His 2005 29’ Tiara Yacht is the ideal vehicle for getting around the lake. It has twin 375 Crusader HP engines and can cruise at speeds up to 26 knots, making it ideal for trolling. The boat holds up to 4 anglers and features a private toilet and galley. She’s outfitted with only the highest quality equipment. Garmin electronics, Cannon downriggers, and nothing but Shimano rods and reels 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.

In the early springtime, Brown Trout and Lake trout are the target species. The month of May provides some of the finest fishing of the season chasing King Salmon! If you choose to book your trip in the summer or fall then expect to have King Salmon and Steelhead after your line.

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, proper clothing, and sun protection.

With Captain Mark at the helm, you’re all set for a fun-filled day on the lake. Join Reel Mania Sportfishing Charters and make some memories!
