DNA Fishing. It’s in Our Genes.

DNA Fishing bids you a warm welcome to Oswego, New York. Captain Donald Lavoie and his wife Andrea will do their best to make your day of fishing as fun and enjoyable as possible. They will take you out to Lake Ontario and show you the best spots for landing that prized catch. Feel free to tell them if you have any preferences. They want you to enjoy your trip and be as involved as you want to be.

Your adventure will take place on a 28’ Baha Cruiser performance fishing boat that can safely take up to 5 anglers. This boat is powered by twin 350 HP Mercury Magnum 6.2 liter engines that can reach cruising speeds of 25 knots. The boat uses extensive navigation electronics, has a portable toilet, and comes with an ice-box and downriggers for all your needs.

You and your guides will be chasing Coho Salmon and Brown Trout on the lake. To attract them, you can try trolling with light tackle, so you know you’re in for a battle. The fish you catch is yours to keep if you want it, and the crew will gladly clean it for you at the end of your trip.

The crew will also provide you with all the fishing rods, reels, tackle, and lures for the trip. All you need to do is bring some snacks, drinks, and ensure everyone on board has a fishing license, and you’ll be set to go.

Hit the water with DNA Fishing and make some incredible memories on Lake Ontario!

Captain Donald grew up in a fishing family. Together with his wife Andrea, he makes DNA Fishing. This husband-wife team met in Key West, Florida when he was a light tackle guide and she was in the navy. They have guided hunters and fishermen for the last 26 years together. They started fishing together in Key West and then moved to northern Maine and ran a sporting camp for 19 years. They guided moose, bear, and bird hunters as well as fishermen. Capt. Donald and his wife have been fishing Lake Ontario for 12 years. They sold their lodge and bought a charter boat. For them, it’s more of a passion than just a business. They often fish tournaments in their spare time. This team enjoys getting clients involved in the setup and whatever else they'd like to learn or try.
