Phantom Sportfishing – Oakville

Make an adventure out of your next trip to Oakville and go fishing with Phantom Sportfishing. Your guide for the day is Captain Franky, giving you access to over 17 years of angling experience.

Pink Salmon, Chinook Salmon, Chum Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Brook Trout, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, Steelhead, and more could be biting, depending on when you go. You’ll target your catch by light tackle fishing, trolling, drifting, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Any fish within the legal limit is yours to keep. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner!

Your fishing machine for the day is a 34’ Pursuit that holds up to 8 passengers. It has outriggers, downriggers, a fighting chair, and all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. Capt. Franky has rods and reels for you, along with lures. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

Trips are run with the help of a First Mate. Mates often work for tips, and it’s customary to offer them a 10–20% tip. Before coming aboard, it may be necessary to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain.

Capt. Franky believes in teaching kids to fish while they’re young, so get ‘em offline and onto the water! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available. Don’t leave home without snacks, drinks, a hat, sunglasses, bottled water, and sunblock (non-spray). Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

How often would you rather be fishing? Go on and turn that daydream into a reality with Phantom Sportfishing.

Growing up on the south coast of Italy in a small fishing town, fishing quickly became a way of life. After traveling around the world fishing and running crews down south on saltwater, it was time to settle down in Canada. I love nothing more than sharing my passion with people and hope you can make it out to see why we are well regarded. Service, kindness, patience, and a willingness to share our sport with any novice are why we do what we do.
