North Shore Charters

North Shore Charters invites you on an enjoyable fishing trip on Lake Ontario. Come visit Oakville, Ontario and have a fun time on the water as you discover the lake’s rich marine life and catch Salmon. Join Captain John Fensel and let him introduce you to all the beauties of Lake Ontario.

You’ll be using a restored 36’ Sea Ray flybridge for your trip. Up to 6 guests can come aboard this spacious boat that will provide a safe and comfortable trip to the fish and back. It uses modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology for navigation and is powered by twin 260 HP Mercruiser 454 engines. The onboard facilities include a flybridge, kitchen, toilet, shower, as well as bed. The boat is equipped with outriggers and downriggers, and also features air-conditioning, a multimedia system, TV, refrigerator, and an ice-box. For any help you might need during the trip, feel free to ask the first mate.

You and the crew will be targeting Chinook and Coho Salmon using trolling on heavy tackle. You can keep your catch and take it home to enjoy delicious meals but you’re also free to release fish back into the water. Kids are also welcome to join aboard, so bring them with you and enjoy a beautiful day on the water together. During your trip, keep in mind that alcohol isn’t allowed on board.

What you’ll need to bring on your trip are your licenses, snacks, and drinks. Captain John will take care of all the fishing gear, including lures.

Come to Oakville and enjoy a lovely day of fishing with North Shore Charters!

Captain John's father was a certified Captain and he taught him at a very young age of 12 years old to start to fish and operate a vessel. It can be said it was a family pastime in the beginning, but the captain's love and passion for fishing eventually evolved into a career for him.
