December 2018 Fishing report.

It's hard to describe how good the fishing was this December and still make it believable. This was by far the best December I've ever had on the Niagara. The brown trout bite was by far the best I've ever seen. The Steelhead bite was very good also. With that being said we had good quantity and quality on all of our trips.

Looking forward to the fishing in January and February being just as good!

2018 was a really good year for WET NET CHARTERS. Thank you to all of the customers that made this a great 2018 a success.

November 2018

Salmon season is finally over for 2018 BUT a new season has arrived early and bite has been GOOD! It's trout season on the Niagara River. We fish trout (steelhead,lake trout,brown trout) all winter long and through spring but November and December are really good months to target these fish. The water is still relatively warm and the weather is pretty good to. Here are some of the fish we have been catching the last few weeks. It's just getting started and BEST bite is still to come!

Sept 3rd

I haven't taken many pictures lately to post a report but today was a day that need to be documented!

We had a few singles, a double, a tripple and 2 QUADS! We were boxed out by 10am. We grinded for bites the last two days fishing ice water and today the warm water came back. My Fish Hawk Electronics blue tooth unit kept me in the right water collum so I could get all the rods to fire! Man I love the Niagara bar! All fish were caught on flasher fly combinations. Team Dreamweaver white dbl crush spin doctors with A-Tom-Mik Mfg. flys. Mirage,green pearl,glow pro-am and hypnotist have all been chipping in to fill coolers.

Soon the mature salmon will be making there way up the Niagara for there anual fall run but right now they are staging in front of the river. If you would like to catch some of these drag screaming tackle busters call or text me. 716-550-0413 Let's get the NET WET!

July 7th

Lake Erie is alive and well!!

I fished with my good friends and customers Don Feldman and Doreen Feldman today on Lake Erie for walleye. I had their trip scheduled for two Saturdays ago. The night before their trip. I called them and postponed it for two weeks. The walleye bite just wasn't what I wanted for them. Today was the rescheduled day and it was well worth the wait. They got a limit of nice big walleye. Next year's trip is already in the booked!! Let's 'Get the NET WET'...(716) 550-0413

June 29th

The salmon bite on Lake Ontario has been nothing short of spectacular. My last 4 trips I've had the pleasure of introducing our great fishery to some youth anglers. Needless to say they are "hooked". We caught some really nice fish and they all had a great time. Our youth need more guidance and activities in the outdoors now more than ever! Start introducing them to "FULL BOXES" not "X BOXES".

June, 2018

These boys came all the way from Florida to tangle with some of Lake Ontario's finest! They weren't disappointed. We had a little NE wind to shake things up today. Kings LOVE wind ...they eat like it's there last meal.... or these unlucky ones it was! Team Dreamweaver spin doctors and super slim spoons (42 second ) getting it done today. A-TOM-MIK Mfg. stud fly was just that today ... A STUD. July is just around the corner and it's setting up to be an epic summer. If you want to get in on the action now is the time. I only have a few days available in July. Let's Get the NET WET... (716) 550-0413!
