Salmon Catcher Charters Toronto Ontario

Salmon Catcher Fishing Charters runs seasonal fishing trips on Lake Ontario. Located in the municipality of Mississauga, these trips are a great way to spend afternoon or weekend going after Salmon and Trout that live here.

Captain Bob has been fishing all Ontario lakes for the past 37 years, focusing on Lake Ontario waters. He knows how to land Salmon and Trout, and will put you on fish. His trips are suitable for novice anglers and more experienced fishermen, so feel welcome.

You will join Captain Bob aboard his 19’ Bayliner bow rider. Powered by a 130 HP Mercruiser engine, she can reach speeds of 40 knots. The vessel can accommodate up to four anglers, and take them out off the coast of Port Credit for some fine fishing.

The vessel is equipped with GPS and fishfinder, and stores the fishing equipment. You will get rods, reels, and tackle, lures and live bait. Soft drinks will be served onboard, and anglers are not allowed to bring alcohol on their trip.

These waters are home to hefty Salmon and Trout, and you will get to test your skills on heavy tackle. Salmon Catcher Fishing Charters use trolling to get you the fish, and Chinook, Coho, Rainbow and Lake Trout all bite well around these fisheries.

If you need flexibility, this charter is the safest option, as Captain Bob can arrange for a different departure time. However, he has a lot of experience fishing here, and knows weather conditions well. He will advise you on your itinerary so that you use the most out of your Lake Ontario fishing.

Pack your necessities, grab a camera, take some snacks, and come along!
ALL Departure times must be finalized with the Captain.

"We have best salmon fishing in Canada right at the City of Toronto's doorstep." Captain Bob Tatarsky grew up holding a rod in his hand, fishing with his friends. He moved to Ontario in 1980 and has been fishing all of the lakes in the state since then, with special attention paid to Lake Ontario. For the past 4 years, he's been guiding customers on exciting fishing trips on Lake Ontario and other fresh waters of the area. One of his most memorable catches was a 40lb Sturgeon, which fought him for half an hour!

Special Rules for Taking Trout and Salmo
Special Rules for Taking Trout and Salmo
June 27, 2021
A moderate steady retrieve will give the fish time to adjust to changes in water pressure. Trout and salmon caught in many cold water lakes are caught in very deep water. Bringing them to the surface is particularly stressful because the fish experiences a substantial reduction in water pressure. At 100 feet deep the pressure per inch is four times greater than at the surface. In this situation it is important not to "horse in" the fish but to bring it to the surface slowly but steadily. Fish brought up from deep water may need "burping." Burping is a method of expelling excess air from the fish's swim bladder. The drop in pressure causes the swim bladder to expand, increasing the fish's buoyancy and causing it to float belly up. Left in this condition, many fish die as a result of the surface water's warm temperatures or attacks by predators. But in trout and salmon, the swim bladder is connected to the esophagus, making it possible to squeeze excess air out. To do so, hold the fish gently on its side and gently, but firmly, squeeze the belly from the vent toward the head. You will be able to hear the burp as air is expelled from the bladder. Do not squeeze the head and gill area, as that could damage vital organs. Stimulate the fish to dive deeply. Once burped, the fish should be able to dive down to the deep cold water. But it may require further assistance. Two methods have proved useful in stimulating fish to dive. One is to vigorously thrust the fish, head first, into the water. The slap of the water, and the plunge downward usually stimulates the fish to swim down. Another technique is the "release when recovered" method. Hold the fish gently at the middle of its body with its head pointed downward at a 45 degree angle. In that position a gentle side-to-side motion (or slow speed of the boat if trolling) can be used to move water into the mouth and over the gills. As the fish recovers, it will begin to kick, and slide out of your hand. When its tail passes through your hand, give the tail a quick squeeze. This seems to stimulate the fish's swimming action, causing to dive with more vigor. Remember, the idea is not to catch the tail, but to compress it as it slides through your hand. When is burping and additional handling needed? Let the fish tell you that. Start by handling the fish as little as possible, i.e., flip it off the hook with needle-nosed pliers. If it is able to recover and returns to the depths, you have avoid a lot of handling. If it is unable to dive, the head first plunge may be enough or burping and the "release when recovered" technique may be required. Based on fisherman observations landlocked salmon taken from 30 feet deep can be flipped off the hook will do fine. Salmon from 60 feet deep may need some help to recover. Lake trout seem to be more sensitive than salmon. A lake trout brought up from 60 feet will probably need to be burped and given some help to dive back to deep water.
