Fishin' Clinician Charters

Fishin’ Clinician Charters invites you to a world-class Salmon and Trout fishing trip in Lake Ontario with an experienced captain and professional crew. Captain Mike has more than a decade of fishing experience on Lake Ontario and will do his best to make sure your stay there is an unforgettable one.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 27’ Sea Ray offshore sportfishing boat that’s equipped with twin 350 HP Mercury engines. These powerful engines can have it reaching an impressive top speed of 40 knots, so you’ll be on the fishing grounds in no time. The boat also has amenities such as a fixed head toilet, kitchen, and bed that can come in handy during a trip.

Lake Ontario is well known for its fantastic Salmon fishery, especially when it comes to Chinook Salmon in particular. Apart from Salmon, Rainbow Trout is probably the most sought-after fish in the lake. Captain Mike will show you his favorite fishing spots and help you go after some big ones that you can brag about later.

The price of a trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, and the crew will clean and fillet your catch after the trip. Feel free to bring some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined, and a pair of sunglasses and hat are very much recommended. Book your trip now and get ready to have some fun in Lake Ontario.
