About Your Trip

Launch out onto Lake Ontario to hook into freshwater monsters with Captain Robert Hartman! Lake Ontario is an absolutely sweet spot for Salmon fishing. In recent years they have even been beating out British Columbia in terms of Salmon productivity! For this trip you will be targeting giant Steelhead, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and the show stopper: humungous King Salmon. These giant anadromous fish don't mess around either oftentimes fighting so hard, full-grown men need to pass off the rod!

With over 6 years of experience guiding these waters, Captain Robert knows how to adjust to any conditions and bite patterns to get you on these behemoths. After he's got you hooked up, you will be fighting these fish on heavy Okuma and Shimano fishing tackle, 20-30 pound rated rods, using big Rapala baits. Even with all this top-rated gear, Captain Robert has a rod broken every year fighting these puppies!

On top of the trophy appeal these fish offer, they are also delicious to eat! And Captain Robert will clean and fillet all your catches for you at the end of your adventure!

Since Captain Robert provides all the gear you could possibly need for an incredible day out on the water, all you need to bring is your sun protection, cooler for your catch, and any snacks and beverages you want for the day. Captain Robert Hartman will take care of the rest!

Went out with a group of 7 guys this past weekend for a friends birthday. Was a fantastic day with Rob and Bob. Rob is extremely knowledgeable and worked hard to ensure we had a a great experience. Even though we are all experienced fishermen we all learned something from him. Will definitely be going back on another trip with him and would highly recommend him whether or not you are an experienced fisherman or its your fist time out. Thanks Rob and Bob for a great day. Looking forward to another trip hopefully this fall.
