Fishmaster Ultimate - Lake Ontario

80 Lighthouse Rd
St Catharines ON, Canada

With Fishmasters Ultimate Charters, you will be able to discover the finest fishing spots Lake Ontario has to offer. If you’re in the Niagara Falls or St. Catherine’s area, join Captain Steve Hardcastle for a fun and productive day out on the Great Lake.

Capt. Steve has a lifetime of fishing experience on the Great Lakes and almost four decades of experience in the chartering business. He has been featured in various TV shows and as a proud winner of multiple fishing competitions, such as King of the Lake and King of Kings tournament, where he got an award for a total of 260 pounds of fish caught over just 2 days. Capt. Steve is a real “fish master” who will put you on fish. If you don’t get your fish, your next trip is free!

Enjoy an exciting adventure with Fishmaster Ultimate Charters and try your hand at trolling for whatever is biting. Your potential catches include Chinook “King” Salmon, Coho “Silver” Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead.

You can easily land some of the largest freshwater fish in your life. For instance, Lakers vary between 10-30 lbs, Steelhead and Cohos are 5-20 lbs, Brownies are usually 8-15 lbs, while Chinooks are 25-49 lbs.

Make your own “catch of the day” possible aboard a 42’ Trojan boat. Fully refurbished in 2015, this vessel has plenty of fishing space for up to 8 anglers. It comes powered by a 750 HP Crusader engine and is fully outfitted with modern electronics and professional accessories. There is also a fighting chair, a restroom, and a multimedia system with a TV onboard for your maximum comfort on the water.

All trips include the use of gear and tackle by Shimano, as well as live bait and lures.
