Cold Steel Sportfishing

Basin Street
Oswego NY, United States

Capt. Tom Burke has owned & operated Cold Steel sportfishing for the last 29 years. He is based in New York’s famous Salmon river region, on the eastern end of lake Ontario and spends six months a year on lake Ontario and six months on the Salmon river and other tributaries. Tom has spent his entire adult life in pursuit of trophy salmon & trout, including eight summers in Alaska’s famous Bristol Bay watershed.

Capt. Tom operates a 1977 36’ Egg Harbor sportfisherman on lake Ontario. This vessel has been restored from bow to stern. It provides a comfortable, stable and safe fishing platform, while its rich mahogany interior brings back memories of the good old days! In 2000 Tom brought 1st mate Andy Bliss onboard, who is now also a licensed captain and Nys guide. Together they have become a formidable duo, whether chartering or winning tournaments from one end of the lake to the other. On a fishing trip with Cold Steel Sportfishing you will have at your disposal two full time captains, tournament tested, top quality gear (Shimano, Cannon, Humminbird, etc), and a fully licensed & insured vessel.

From September to May Cold Steel moves to the tribs. This allows them to follow large adult King & Coho salmon, along with steelhead & Brown trout. Either streamside, or from the comfort of their 18’ heated Makenzie drift boat, Capt. Tom will guide you to that trophy of a lifetime!! Whether you choose big Kings during the beautiful fall foliage, acrobatic Steelhead dancing across the water with the falling leaves, or become one of the “frozen chosen” during the solitude of winter Steelheading, Cold Steel will again provide you with top of the line gear and the knowledge of the rivers garnered over thousands of hours on the water.

We look forward to fishing with you!! Capt. Tom

Have fished my whole life. Was the one thing I could do non stop and enjoy. Loved the idea of making my love a profession! equally enjoy meeting new people and teaching them to fish. Or guiding them to their fish of a lifetime! I enjoy fishing for almost any fish. But trout & salmon are my passion!
