About the Captain

I have been fishing the productive waters of Lake Ontario for over 34 years, and have been a licensed Captain on the Lake 10 years. I have also been guiding the Salmon River for 26 years and fishing it for 35, and am extremely passionate about fishing. In fact, I am almost obsessive about it. Although I am one of the younger Captains running charter trips on the Lake, I have built a strong reputation for being a gifted and innovative fisherman of Salmon and Trout. As well as running charter fishing trips, I have produced and hosted my own TV show, called the “Northeast Great Outdoors”, which was aired on the Fox Network, The MSG Network, The Outdoor Channel, and the OLN Network nationally. With the TV show, I also have had my own successful radio show on WIBX AM Radio. I have been inducted into the NYS Outdoorsman's Hall Of Fame in 2002 and have written articles in a few magazines and have had articles done about me too.
