Robert Hartman

Member since April 2018 Whitby, Canada
Background
Captain Robert Hartman has had the fortune to fish all over, from Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, to Florida and Mexico. Be that as it may, he always comes back to Lake Ontario, his true love. With more than five decades of fishing experience, he know exactly what to do to get you on the fish of a lifetime.
Techniques
Trolling is the preferred method on the Great Lakes for catching Salmon and Trout. I employ numerous tactics from down rigging, planer boards, divers, steel, copper and lead core to suit the current and changing bite patterns.
