365 Sportfishing

365 Sportfishing is a family-friendly company that is based in Dunkirk, New York. Captain Mark Hitcome is a native guide who has spent his whole life exploring the local waters. If you are after the finest fish species that Lake Erie has to offer, give Capt. Mark a try!

Come and spend your day on a 21’ Ranger performance. Newly built in 2018, this vessel has space for up to 3 anglers, making her the perfect option for a family bonding trip, or for small groups of angling buddies to indulge in friendly competition!

The boat comes powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine and fully rigged with a GPS, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio. Combined with your captain’s expert knowledge, you’ll have no problem locating the hottest spots around.

The season begins in May and goes through November. The trips last for five hours, during which you will be able to hone your angling skills and try your hand at the methods that work best. Your main target for the day will be Lake Erie’s ‘Superstar’ – Walleye.

All trips include the use of rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. Happy fishing!

Capt. Mark here! I have lived in the Dunkirk area my whole life. Fishing these waters for over 35 years has given me the opportunity to share it with hundreds of people. I have showcased this area on my TV show, and would love to share a day of fishing this world-class fishery with you! Let's have some fun! We have all the best tackle to catch these fish on while we are trolling, casting or drifting. Tight lines and screaming reels!
