Capt. Sylvain Blanchette of Reel Life Charters offers charter fishing trips in the northern part of Lake Ontario. He is conveniently located in Whitby, which is under an hour’s drive from the bustling heart of Toronto, and is living proof of the fact that you don’t need to be based in an inaccessible wilderness in order to catch big fish.

‘Reel Life’ is a 30 ft Seaswirl Striper 2901, a hugely popular and sturdy walk around boat that is ideal for battling unfavorable weather conditions as well as having plenty of room for up to four anglers on board. The boat features a fixed head and wash down to keep all anglers happy and comfortable on board, and it is equipped with a variety of electronics as well as outriggers and downriggers to help you get the most out of your fishing experience.

You will be fishing the world famous Lake Ontario for a large variety of species, with King Salmon, Koho Salmon, Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon, Lake Trout and Brown Trout all there for the catching depending on the season. Please note that there is a limit to the number of fish in the Salmon family that you can bring to shore according to licensing legislation, with a maximum of five fish kept by each client enforced by the captain. These fish will be cleaned and filleted for you at no extra cost, ready for you to take home for a delicious dinner.
