Taymo Charters invites you to spend a day on the waters of the Western Basin of Lake Ontario with Captain Jay Wilson. This full-service guided Salmon fishing charter operates on Lake Ontario from April to October.

Captain Jay has over 30 years of experience fishing and guiding on Lake Ontario and will provide an excellent time for everyone onboard. Experiencing the fight of fresh water Salmon and Trout species with the Toronto skyline in view is just one of the perks of fishing with Jay. You can fish in one of the biggest and most successful Salmon Tournaments during July and August every year, too!

Salmon fishing on Lake Ontario out of Oakville, Canada is best from June through August; Steelhead fishing is good from April through October, and Brown and Lake Trout are best in May, and then again in September and October.

FIshing is done aboard Captain Jay’s 27’ Cruiser Inc Offshore sport fishing boat, originally built in 1989, and restored in 2016. Powered by a 350 HP Mercruiser inboard engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots, this vessel is very fast. The onboard Lowrance HDS GPS and a twin Lowrance/Simrad fishfinder will help you locate the best fishing spots. The vessel is equipped with all the safety features you might need, a livewell for the bait, a bed, and a toilet.

Taymo Charters will include rods, reels, tackle, and lures on all trips. There will be a first mate to help you reel in your catch, and they will also clean and fillet your catch once the trip is over. For your convenience, Taymo Charters are child-friendly.

Captain Jay loves to fish. He loves to guide others to their favorite fish and share their excitement. His favorite fish to target is Salmon, because, he says: "You never really know how big they will be when you pull them out!". He also loves deep sea fishing and has participated in Pro-Am tournaments on the Great Lakes.
