North Emerald Charters

North Emerald Charters and Captain Allan Garrison invite you for some great angling time in Niagara Falls, New York. Explore the beautiful Niagara River as well as Lakes Erie and Ontario and target many fine species that dwell in the areas. These grounds are known as rich both in fish quality and quantity and will provide you with first-rate fishing opportunities. Join in and have an unforgettable time on the water with North Emerald Charters.

Your trip will start on a 17’ Lund Fisherman Adventure aluminum boat. It can sit up to 2 guests and runs on a 115 HP Johnson engine. For additional power and maneuvering, it features an 8.8 Yamaha kicker, and Minn Kota Terrova trolling motor. Thanks to them and the excellent navigation technology, you and your crew will reach the fish in no time. There’s a porta potty you can use, a wireless trolling motor, livewell, as well as downriggers.

You’ll have the chance to catch many prized freshwater species, such as Walleye, Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and more. The techniques you can use to catch include spinning, drift fishing, trolling, and bottom fishing. Kids are more than welcome to join the trip and you’re free to take all your catch home. Note that there can be no smoking and alcohol drinking while on board.

From the complete fishing gear to snacks and drinks to catch cleaning, Captain Allan covers you with almost everything you’ll need for your trip. Just bring your fishing licenses and you’ll be ready to start your adventure.
