Lake Ontario Salmon from a charter boat

Rick and Craig could not have been better hosts this weekend. Rick spent an hour with us talking fishing Friday when we could not go out due to the weather, and Saturday put on fish under real tough conditions. My brothers and I could not have asked for more for our fathers 75th birthday. Thanks Guys. Trip 9-15-12


Lake Ontario Spring Brown Trout Caught on a Lake Ontario Charter Boat

Rick & Craig,
Thanks for the awesome trip on Sunday. Those two literally made memories that will last a lifetime. My dad took them back to his house and had a cookout with fresh fish and venison. They couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had and were already talking about fishing this summer. You guys run an amazing operation (as I expected) and the visible effort you guys put forth would have been enough for them to have a good time. Spending the time to fix the otter boat when there wasn't a lot of fishing left made a big impression on me. You guys kick ass in my book! If I ever have a similar situation with not being able to take someone out in the future I am definitely referring them to you. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and give me advice, I really appreciate all the help. Good luck this year. Trip 04/14/2013

Lake Ontario Salmon caught on Lake Ontario Charter Boat

All I can say is Thank you! My son and I had a great time with the day and a half fishing charter. My son was concerned about fishing with his broken foot but Craig and you made it very comfortable, and easy for him, despite the rough conditions. He was able to catch the biggest freshwater fish he’s ever caught! He talked about the trip for over a hour on our ride home. You guys made this such a enjoyable experience we can’t wait to come back next year and try the Brown Trout! Trip 8/16 & 8/17, 2012

Lake Ontario Brown Trout

Just another thank you to both you and Craig for an exceptional day!!! I needed this day off and had a great time. Thanks for one of the most enjoyable fishing days I've had in a long, long time. 16' 11 oz is pretty sweet...My wife was quite impressed and we grilled out some of the trout for supper tonight. It was spectacular!!! Looking forward to being on a future fishing excursion... Trip April 11th, 2011

Lake Ontario Brown Trout

Thank you very much for the great day of fishing. I was proud watching my son Matthew catch fish after fish. He has spent the afternoon showing off his fish and pictures to his friends. You and your brother Craig were excellent, and we both enjoyed the day. We had some of the large Brown for dinner tonight, tasted great! Trip April 18th, 2010.

Kudos to the boys of Yankee Trollers - thank you Rick and Craig for working so hard to put fish on the boat. We really killed em with over 25 hits!!! Barry and I had one heck of a time taking turns with rods. Boy, you know how important my hands are when I use sign language. Both my hands and arms are too tired, therefore I did not want to "talk" too much when I got home last night. I went to bed before 9 p.m. last night. Once again, thank you for the wonderful charter trip. As for you who have never fished at the bar. This is the place to be! Trip May 2nd, 2010.


Lake Ontario Coho Salmon and Chinook Salmon

Great fishing with you again Rick! The guys all had a great time!

Had a fabulous time this year being out there with my boys, Jake and Ryan.  They still get excited every time we talk about the charter. As matter of fact they are already making plans for next year and who is gonna  catch the bigger fish. Oh and it begins.


Anyway I realize that I never did send you some of the pics I took. My little guy Ryan still thinks the best part was when you were gutting the fish and seeing what they had in their stomachs. Got to love 8 year olds.


Hopefully we will see you next year.
