The Captain

Trophy Salmon and Trout fishing on Lake Ontario

Captain Gary has been fishing the waters of Lake Ontario for more than 34 years. He is fully licensed and safety is his number one concern along with making sure you catch fish and have fun! No equipment or experience is necessary. You will need a valid NYS Fishing License, some comfortable clothes, a lunch and a cooler to carry your catch home or to the taxidermist. You will be fishing out of Shumway Marina in Rochester NY.  Charters start in April and run through October. Charter any day of the week!

Fish Are Guaranteed

Overnight accommodations are available. Please ask about our offshore adventures.

News and Information

Spring is rapidly approaching. We are all tired of being in the house and eager to get out on the lake. This year fish promise to be large and in charge. Hook one today and enjoy the fight of a lifetime. Bring home a wall hanger to remember your trip until your next one!

Summer/Fall 2020

The Summer and Fall fishing on Lake Ontario is shaping up to be one of the best in decades!   The numbers of salmon being caught right now rival that of the 1980’s.  Double digit days of solid salmon catches are being had right now.  Book your trip now before the opportunity passes you by.  We have a limited number of days left so lets get in touch. 

The LOC derbies are lurking around the corner and Captain Gary has put fish in the money, so don’t miss a chance to put your big fish on the board. Be sure to ask about the derby times and dates when booking!  Click here to visit the derby site

My family and I had a great time fishing with Captain Gary !! We caught our limit of fish and learned quite alot about the fishery and how it all started. The boat was roomy and very comfortable. We will take another charter with Gary in the fall . We recommend Freedom Charters Highly !!

I had a blast today doing some fishing with my boss and co-workers. I’m not even big into fishing, so with that said everyone should try it out and book an outting!
