Going fast!

Eighteen Years in business chartering on Lake Erie, Ontario and the mighty Niagara. I pride myself on not giving boats rides. If you have a fish in mind to catch I can help you do that and have fun along the way. We fish many different ways casting, drifting, trolling it all depends on the type of fish we are after. I became a Captain because of my love of fishing. let me know if I can be of service.
