Midway Charters – Lake Ontario

It’s time to have a fabulous lake adventure with Midway Charters. Spend the day on Lake Ontario with Captain James W Fetterhoff Sr. This lake is known for being one of the best places for reeling in large freshwater fish.

Capt. James is a seasoned veteran of the lakes, with over 25 years of fishing experience. From the moment you get out on the water, you will see his profound love of it all. He will use every ounce of his skill and local knowledge to make sure you get the most out of your trip, no matter your age or experience level.

Step on board his 30’ Penn Yan. This beautiful boat can fit you and 5 of your fishing friends on board without bumping elbows. This boat is a steady ride with lots of room on deck, perfect for lake fishing. The twin 240 HP Crusader engines will get you to the fishing grounds before you know it.

This boat boasts full navigational equipment, including fishfinder, giving you that extra edge out on the water. With great safety equipment on board you can fish with peace of mind.

On this trip, you will be targeting Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Salmon, and Steelhead. Brown Trout is great from April through December. The other species are best from May onwards. Whatever your age, Capt. James will happily show you the tricks of the trade and help you land your trophy catch or personal best.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in your dream fish. Live bait and lures are also included. You will need to purchase a fishing license before the trip, and bring along your own food and drink in a small cooler – please don’t bring along anything that could break easily.

Fishing with Midway Charters is a fantastic day out for the whole family – get the kids away from the TV and give them a rod instead – they will have some incredible stories to tell their friends back at school!

"I have been a fisherman my entire life, I was raised fishing in streams and lakes from PA to Canada. I started fishing the Great Lakes in my 20s." Captain James got his captains license in 2002 so he could share his passion with others. The locals call his addiction to catch great fish the Salmon Fever. You will see in Capt. James unequaled dedication and commitment to the fishing success of every angler onboard.
