1st Choice Charters - Wilson

1st Choice Fishing Charters and Captain Randy invite you down to New York to explore the bite on the mighty Lake Ontario. The company is on the water 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They know the hottest spots to catch Salmon and master the cast.

Capt. Randy will take you exploring the waters of the Lake aboard his 21’ Lund boat. Its single 225 HP Mercury engine and a 15 HP Mercury kicker motor will power you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely. The boat is equipped with new Lowrance fish finding electronics and a variety of accessories. There is a Minn Kota trolling motor for a quiet ride and Cannon downriggers for a professional fishing experience.

1st Choice Charters will take you battling the Lake’s superstar. Your day out on the water will be dedicated to Salmon, arguably the most delicious fish in Western New York. Apart from trolling for Chinook ‘King’ and Atlantic Salmon, you will also have a chance to get your hands on Trout if the conditions allow.

Purchase a fishing license, grab something to eat and drink, and step on board. Capt. Randy will provide you with quality rods, reels, tackle, and bait. When you’re back to shore, your catch could be cleaned and sent home ready to jump straight into the grill. 

Bring your kids, family or friends with you. Introduce your children to fishing, master your cast, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
