Red Dog Fishing Charters

Red Dog Fishing Charters is based out of Chaumont Bay, New York, run by Captain Dave Miller. With nearly 2 decades of experience fishing these rivers, you know that you’ll have a productive day with him, going to all the hottest spots.

Captain Dave runs charters on his 26’ Stamas hardtop boat, which is powered by twin 165 HP Mercruiser engines. This beauty is equipped with GPS and fishfinder, giving you that extra edge when fishing. Paired with Capt. Dave’s extensive knowledge, you’ll find yourself on top of the fish all day long.

This boat is also fully enclosed and heated – the cold weather won’t stop you from having a comfortable ride out. There’s also the latest in fishing gear, outriggers, downriggers, live-bait tank, and a toilet. You and 5 fishing friends can fish in comfort aboard this vessel.

The day can be spent trolling for Walleye and Northern Pike, casting for Largemouth Bass all summer long, or hunting that ever-elusive Musky in the late fall. Depending on the season, you’ll also target Yellow Perch. Whatever your skill level, there is a fish out here with your name on it!

Included in the price are everything you need for a successful fishing trip, such as top quality rods and reels, live bait, and lures. After the trip, your catch will be filleted for you – this just leaves you the hard choice of how you’ll cook your fresh dinner.

Please make sure to buy a fishing license before the first line is cast, and bring along your own snacks and drinks for the day.

Red Dog Fishing Charters can’t wait to welcome you on board and start making some awesome memories together. Book now and meet them on the water today!
