Successful Lake Ontario Fishing Charters


Past  Lake Ontario fishing charter clients both young and old alike have enjoyed tremendous success  while  fishing with us. Our professional Ace Charters Lake Ontario fishing charters team has done very well, also. In past seasons since 2011,our pro team and its members had the dubious distinction of being the ONLY team to successfully place and cash in EVERY Lake Ontario tournament entered. This includes both here in the United States and Canada till halfway of 2014. Our fishing charter clients also set a standard by catching nine trophy king salmon over the magical weight of thirty pounds or “Tyees” as the Canadians call them in one year (2013). None of the other recognized licensed Lake Ontario fishing charters can legitimately make these claims! Please read our 2015 update on tournament fishing highlighted in red here.


Lake Ontario Fishing Opportunities


Lake Ontario fishing charters monster King


Folks, they don’t call them the Great Lakes for nothing! Lake Ontario is the smallest of the five but for the average angler that is pretty hard to believe when he looks out over the massive volumes of potential fishing areas. Lake Ontario actually measures almost 200 miles long and over 50 miles wide. The average mean depth is about 285 feet and the deepest recorded areas can be over 800 feet. For the sportsman, this lake is like “fishing heaven”! There are incredible populations of large fish and multiple species available to fish. Consider this! Lake Ontario is stocked on a yearly basis with over a million and a half trout and salmon by both the United States and Canada.


You would think with such a tremendous opportunity of available species and size that it would be easy, right? Don’t forget that Lake Ontario is a massive body of water and the old saying is… “90% of the fish inhabit 10% of the water”. If you are serious about catching some fish, finding and hiring one of the experienced Lake Ontario fishing charters  is going to be paramount to your success. In order to catch these fish, it is important to understand each species movements and habits. You need to know what depths they live in. What they are feeding on. The preferred water temperature they prefer to swim in. What lures they will strike, what hours of the day they feed, and much more.


What People Are Saying About Our Lake Ontario Fishing Charters


“We had a great time with Captain Jim and his first mate. I was impressed with the experience of both and how they took the time to teach us as much as they could about fishing Lake Ontario. The boat and equipment were in top shape and we were able to bring a cooler with food and drinks for the trip. I can’t recommend them highly enough and will definitely be back in the fall to fish for Kings.” – Andrew P.
