Flatout Sportfishing

Flatout is conveniently docked at Captain Jack’s Restaurant. You’ll be welcomed by Captain Darrin LaChance, who has been fishing Lake Ontario for over 25 years. We’re located right in the beautiful village of Sodus Point, close to the open waters of the lake, and are able to get to prime fishing grounds in no time!

You’ll be fishing aboard "Flatout," a beautiful 32’ Luhrs with a wide 13’ beam and room for 6 guests. It’s very comfortable with plenty of seating under a large hardtop for keeping out of sun and weather. Or, be right in the action of whoever is up to fight a Lake Ontario trophy fish. There’s room for everybody and a private bathroom for your convenience.

Whether you are an expert or beginner, young or old, Flatout provides you with all the best rods, reels, and tackle and is fully equipped with radar, sonar, and GPS navigation gear. You’ll find everything you need to have an epic day fishing on Lake Ontario. Your catch is iced during the day, and after all the pictures are taken, it is filleted and packaged in Ziplocs to enjoy back home.

April into May is mostly trolling Brown Trout, Coho, and Lake Trout with an occasional Chinook. In May and June, start heading a little deeper hunting for Steelhead, Coho, and Chinook Salmon. In the summer months, the main target is Chinook Salmon, but you can also catch Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout. 

Bring a cooler to transport your fish home, a fishing license for everyone over 16, a small cooler with snacks/drinks, plus a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Light alcohol is allowed, such as beer, in cans only, and dress according to the weather (the capt. will brief you a few days prior to your charter). Please message Capt. Darrin with any questions or concerns you may have, including lodging for the trip.

Capt. Darrin and the staff look forward to having you aboard Flatout Sportfishing!
