Niagara River
October 1st

The salmon run is in full force on the lower Niagara River.

I had a fun day with Ryan and Stan today. We had a great morning bite but we were 1 for 4 after the first 3 drifts. I had to break out the ruller and crack some knuckles! I worked with them on what went wrong on the 3 we lost in a row and they proceeded to put on a clinic after that. They went 5 for 5 on the next bites and finished up the day a little early at 6 for 9. Love it when a plan comes together! Let's GET THE NET WET...Wet Net Charters  (716) 550-0413

September 22, 2017

First river trip of the season went pretty good. We got a little bit of a late start and only fished a half day. We landed a few and lost a few. Everyone had a good time.

September 20. 2017

Couldn't of asked for a better day to end my Lake season on. We got an early start and had lines in right at day break. It didn't take long and we had screaming drags! We had our limit fish in the boat about 10:30. I'm already looking forward to next April when it all starts over again! But for now I have a grueling schedule over the next 4 weeks chasing Kings on the Niagara River!

May 2017

We have had some really good spring salmon fishing last few weeks on the Niagara end of lake Ontario of all different year classes and some really nice coho in the 6-10 lb range. The bite just doesn't get any better that it is right now. Here are some of the fish we caught during that time. Monday-Thursday last week produced some of the biggest spring kings I've seen in a long time. We had 5 kings over 20 lbs... 22 1/2, 22, 23, 26 & 26 1/2. There should be some real bruisers this fall. I still have a few days available. Don't miss your chance to get the net wet! GET THE NET WET call or text me... 716-550-0413

April 26-29th

The fishing in Lake Ontario is hot right now. The shallow water bite is still going strong for coho and browns. The offshore king bite really took off this weekend also. The Lakers are now mixed in with the kings and biting good. Now is the time to go fishing and it's only going to get BETTER!! Spring is here and so are the fish. If you were concerned that there were a shortage in bait fish check out a few of the fish finder pics. All of the fish and bait fish are fat and healthy!! GET THE NET WET Call or Text me... 716-550-0413

April 15th - 22nd

Lake Ontario is alive! The shore line bite has been very good for brown trout and coho salmon. The offshore Lake trout bite has been very good also. Now it's time to start mixing in some king salmon! The salmon started showing up in good numbers this weekend. It's time for some screaming drags! The weather has made things interesting but we caught a lot of fish and made happy customers the past few weeks. Jr.Challenger Lures have been the HOT bait for the browns and coho. TUF-LINE braid main line and P-Line fluorocarbon leaders have put all the fish in the boat. I only have a few spots left for spring trout and salmon.
