Stanton Fishing Charters

Stanton Fishing Charters invites you to experience Lake Ontario fishing with an established charter crew. Captain Richard Stanton has been guiding guests on Lake Ontario for 35 years and runs a full-time charter service. Together they provide memorable adventures for anglers looking to hook a massive fish!

Lake Ontario is open to sport fishing from April 1st through November 1st when anglers from all over the world flock here in hopes of landing a trophy Chinook or Coho Salmon, a colorful Steelhead, or a Brown or Lake Trout. All of these species are present in good number during the open season and provide excellent angling experiences.

Captain Richard will take you fishing on his 33’ Trojan Express cruiser, originally built in 1989 and restored in 2014. Powered by twin 350 HP Crusader 454 engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots, this boat is both fast and steady on the water. It features a full head with a shower and sink, a bed, a full kitchen, as well as air-conditioning and a multimedia system.

The vessel is fully equipped with all the safety features you might think of including life jackets for kids and adults, a CPR-trained crew, and more. There is a livewell for the bait that Captain Richard will have ready for you before you board the boat, as well a set of outriggers to aid you in trolling, and an icebox to keep the catch fresh.

Stanton Fishing Charters provides everything you need to have a super productive fishing trip on Lake Ontario. They carry high-quality G. Loomis rods, Daiwa reels, tackle, and bait. You will need to purchase a valid fishing license, and are welcome to bring food and drinks for the day.

Upon return to the dock, your catch can be cleaned and filleted, so make sure you have a cooler waiting to transport your fish in. The prices on hours are based on fishing time, not dock to dock. If you are looking for lodging in the area, please ask Captain Richard and he will be able to advise.
