February 2018

Fishing the Niagara River in February can be very challenging and rewarding at the same time. Managed to get 5 trips in over the weekend. Mother nature threw just about everything that you don't want to fish in at us... 15-20 kt north wind on Day 1, 15-20 kt south west wind on Day 2, bone chilling wind chills below 0 both of these days, Day 3 it was 33 degrees and rain with a 15 kt SW wind, Days 4 & 5 back to single digit wind chills! My customers hung in there for full days and were REWARDED with a mixed bag of some really nice fish. Spring is almost here but if you need a cure for cabin fever... LET'S GET THE NET WET

January 31. 2018

'Mother Nature' and timing for customers, kept us off the water for most of January. Finally got four trips in at the end of the month. The fishing was good for a mix of fish. Our bite was a little picky at times and at other times it was on fire! Sometimes they wanted bait and other times, plugs. Here are some of the fish we caught. February is looking to be one of the best ever! Let's GET THE NET WET... (716) 550-0413

December 18th

Had a great day on the river with Conner Manell & Timothy Manell. It was cold today and the north east wind didn't help make it any more tolorable. Good thing for us the Steelhead were very cooperative. Let's GET THE NET WET... (716) 550-0413

December 2nd - 4th

December is here along with the Steelhead. The winds calmed down and the water cleared up letting us get a few trips in. The last few days the Steelhead bite was the best we have seen in a few years. The lower Niagara River is loaded with's going to be a good winter season! Don't miss your chance at some of the best fishing of the season. Here are a few of the fish we caught.
