The Dreams Come – True Charters

With over 33 years experience sportfishing Lake Ontario, and 35 years on the world famous Salmon River, captain Rick Pecci of The Dreams Come True Charters and Guide Service can put you on the fish.

You will be fishing the lake aboard Captain Rick’s 28’ Baha Cruiser. This boat is fully equipped for a safe and enjoyable fishing experience, and features top quality gear like Raymarine electronics, Cannon downriggers, and all Okuma rod and reel combos.

As well as all the fishing gear, you will find a full head on board for your convenience, and a hard top to keep you dry and out of the sun. This means you will always be comfortable on the way out to the fishing grounds.

The season runs roughly from April through September, although what you are targeting depends on when you are fishing.  Brown Trout kicks off the spring season, and is joined later in the spring by a variety of other species, including Steelhead, Lake Trout, Coho, Atlantic, and Chinook salmon.

Summer fishing starts around July, and again you can expect a multi-species catch. Late summer and fall fishing from the end of July through September you will be targeting nothing but Chinook and Coho Salmon.

On every trip, you will be provided with cold waters for your convenience. But please bring your own food and drink. Limited adult beverages are allowed.

Capt. Rick guarantees that you will leave with a smile and some great memories of a trip of a lifetime, so head up to Mexico, NY, and get ready to make fishing dreams come true!

I am a Licensed 50-Ton Master Captain with a Towing Endorsement, been fishing Lake Ontario for over 36 years, and have been a licensed Captain on the Lake for 10 years. I'm also a licensed N.Y.S. fishing guide, have been guiding the Salmon River since 1992, and fishing the river for over 38 years. I've built a strong reputation for being a gifted and innovative fisherman of Salmon and Trout. As well as running chartered fishing trips, I've produced and hosted my own National TV show, called the “Northeast Great Outdoors”, which was aired on the Fox Network, The MSG Network, The Outdoor Channel, and the OLN Network. Along with the TV show, I've also had my own successful radio show on WIBX AM 950, out of Central NY. Fishing is my life and I've accomplished many attributes to my name in this industry. All so you can have the fun-filled and professionally-run fishing trip of your life! My promise to you is that you leave with a smile and the best experience I can provide!
