Down and Tight Sportfishing

Explore Lake Ontario in style! Down and Tight Sportfishing and Captain Michael offer fishing trips you’ll remember for a long time. Starting in April, all the way till the end of September, you’ll have a chance to share the boat with an experienced captain who’s seen it all. Whether you’re just a beginner looking for your first catch or a pro looking for your next record, you’re at the right place.

You’ll be fishing on a 31’ Penn Yan that accommodates up to 6 guests. This fishing machine has everything an angler needs and wants for a day of fishing. The boat is wheelchair accessible and suitable for all types of anglers. To make the experience more comfortable, there’s a private toilet, a bed to rest, and a multimedia system. This vessel is powered by twin 260 HP Mercruiser engines and has all necessary navigational electronics.

Target Coho and Chinook Salmon or different kinds of Trout, such as Steelhead, Brown, and Lake Trout. The main approach to these species is trolling, so you just need to be ready to pull when you see the rod twitching. If it’s within regulations, you get to keep the catch and Capt. Michael will clean it for you free of charge.

All fishing equipment is included in the price but you need to prepare your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks for the day.

Down and Tight Sportfishing is just what you need for a relaxing day at the lake. Pick a date and become a part of the action.
