About Your Trip

Full day trips are 6 hours. Maximum of 4 Clients to a boat. All rods, reels, bait and tackle are included. Clients must bring a valid New York State fishing license, Proper clothing for weather conditions along with rain gear as well as snacks food and drinks. Like half day trips, All clients must sign a waiver before boarding our vessel.

For half-day sportfishing trips, Joe recommends bringing your favorite snacks and drinks and for
full-day fishing charters, he suggests lunches along with extra snacks and drinks to keep you full and hydrated throughout the day.

Joe is on the water year round and loves to fish the transition between warm water and cold water (or vice versa) when the fish get most active. Target fish species include Bass, Walleye, Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout and Lake Trout. He provides all his Clients with rods, reels, bait, and tackle but you are more than welcome to bring your own gear if you'd like. Each person aboard will be provided with a type 1 life jacket. There are certain times of the year where a life jacket must be worn at all times aboard our boat, especially in the winter. Coldwater fishing is extremely fun but must be done in a safe manner.

You'll be fishing from a 2019 Lund 2175 Pro V Limited powered by a 350 horsepower Mercury Verado L6 Supercharged. The Boat Features a beamwidth of 8 feet 6 inches wide and a length of 21 feet 10 inches long. It's capable of speeds up to 65 mph. Lund Boats and Mercury Outboards have been around forever and are time tested and trusted by expert guides all over the United States

The boat offers a comfortable ride--and the interior says it all: Beautiful charcoal bow carpet along with detachable sea deck mats that cover an all vinyl floor. Makes cleaning after some very fishy trips an absolute breeze. Walkthrough windshield provides our clients a break from the wind on colder days. Aft and Bow live wells along with a high-pressure wash down station. 4 Pro Ride limited seats. This rig is spacious and stable in even the roughest of water.

A valid New York State fishing license is required for any person aboard our boat participating in fishing charters. Guided fishing trips include most of the fishing equipment you will need but there are some things you will be responsible for bringing. New York State Sportfishing License can be purchased online at. You may also want to consider buying a Canadian fishing license in order to fish both sides of the Niagara River as well as Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

Fishing charters are year-round, Please dress Sportfishing during our cold season can be very rewarding as long as proper fishing equipment and clothing are used. Water and windproof outerwear is a must, wool socks and insulated waterproof boots will aid in keeping your feet warm and dry. Good quality hat and gloves will help heat loss and the gloves will ensure that you don't lose dexterity in your fingers

In the event that you decide to keep some of their catch of the day Joe is more than happy to prep and filet them for you. All he asks is that you bring your own Ziploc bags (preferably gallon-sized) and a cooler with ice in it to keep them cold on your ride home. As a part of sportfishing, Joe tries to practice catch and release, however, clients are welcome to keep fish to enjoy, please consider releasing half your daily limit as a way of giving back to our fishery.

Joe has a zero-tolerance drug policy on our boat. No drugs including Marijuana will be allowed aboard our vessel. We understand that Marijuana is legal in New York State but we will on multiple occasions be transiting through Canadian water. Possession in Canadian water is not allowed and puts all on board especially the Guide in jeopardy. Alcohol products are allowed in moderation at the Guide's discretion. Any intoxicated individuals will be asked to leave the vessel. Passengers safety is Guide Joe's first priority

**Note From Your Captain:** "At some point in everyone's life they realize what their true calling is, I've known for many years. Fishing for the longest time was everything to me, but along the way I came to realize what I have come to love most. It wasn't so much the fishing as it was showing others how to. Now don't get me wrong I'll fish until I'm dead, But when you do something all your life the luster starts to wear off. But down the line I began taking my younger Brother and Sister and shortly after that my children and got to see fishing through their eye's. First pan fish, first bass, first walleye, first time wading in a river, first salmon that made that fishing reel scream, first steelhead that would jump clear out the water. All the while looking at their faces and seeing complete and total happiness. Every time I get to take someone new out I get to relive it all over again.

So I decided to pursue that as my profession, I became a New York State Guide some years back focusing mostly on fly fishing and center pin fishing with clients. Float fishing the Niagara River was my second home. All the while I've always had a boat. Fishing the lower river is what I did multiple times a week when I wasn't guiding. Taking out Friends and Family for some night time walleye action in the summer to drifting for Salmon and Trout in the fall, winter and spring. I can truly say that I love it, this is what makes me happy, So in the fall of 2020 I took my United States Coast Guard Master Captain's Course.

This is hands down what I want to do for the rest of my life, I will work as hard as I can for you to make your trip with us something you will never forget. I pride myself in keeping an up to date boat and equipment , make sure all who fish with me are safe at all times.

I look forward to meeting new people in this new chapter of my life and creating memories together."

Regards,

Captain Joe
