Schultz Sportfishing Charter

Schultz Sportfishing Charter offers year-round trips for Trophy Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Yellow Perch, King Salmon, Steelhead, Lake Trout and Brown Trout. You can fish on Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, the Niagara River and the Niagara Bar in the western New York area.

Come and enjoy one of the world’s finest year-round multi-species fisheries out of a fully equipped 2018 Alumacraft 205 Competitor, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. This boat can tackle anything Lake Erie and surrounding waters throw at it. It also features a Minn Kota 80PD Trolling motor with I-Pilot, as well as all Humminbird electronics that will lead you to the most productive fishing spots. 

You will fish with one of the best guides in the area – Barry Schultz. He is a professional guide who has been working in this area for 17 years and has fished all over the New York state since he was just a little boy. He cares deeply about the local fisheries and will teach you how to fish responsibly by a method he calls CPR - Catch, Picture, Release.

Schultz Sportfishing Charter provides all the baits and top quality tackle including rods and reels. Captain Barry will also advise you where you can purchase your fishing license and which restaurants will cook your catch best.

Fish cleaning is available for Walleye, Salmon, and Trout, whereas Smallmouth Bass trips are Catch and Release only. You can also have your Yellow Perch cleaned, but you’ll have to come in early to allow for their cleaning time as you can expect to catch 50-150 on an average day of fishing.

Angling Adventures with Schultz Sportfishing Charter will allow you to catch great fish and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the serene Lake Erie and the surrounding area. Just pick a date and have fun!
