Fishing from Bronte Harbour Oakville is an experience to be remembered! So if you like fishing, or spending time on the water – you have come to the right place! Even if you have yet to experience the thrill of fishing for the first time, you can reel in a twenty or thirty pound Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, a rainbow or a brown trout, all from the waters of Lake Ontario, using a fishing boat charter that takes you onto the lake from our own Bronte Harbour!
Lake Ontario is a world class fishery and there are several charter boats operating from Bronte Harbour. Boomers Sporting Adventure and Up4Fishn will be featured in this article. A trophy Chinook Salmon fishery has been created by the MNR in the western basin of Lake Ontario. Many people have no idea that it exists! Do you?
Professional Charter Captain, Guy Smith, owner and captain of Boomers Sporting Adventures, runs fishing charters using two large fishing yachts: “Bear Necessity” and “Veteran’s Dream” (Yes! Guy is also the originator of the Annual Canada Day, Host a Veteran Fishing Derby).
“Imagine the relaxation and exhilaration,” says Guy Smith, “as your party boards one of our professionally crewed, well appointed and fully equipped sporting yachts, Veterans Dream or Bear Necessity. Once pleasantries are exchanged we leisurely depart the serenity of beautiful Bronte outer harbour. The breeze gently rushes through your hair as we power up in anticipation of finding our quarry, sometimes close but never more than a few minutes offshore. We are of course in pursuit of enticing CHINOOK Salmon, Coho Salmon, and Steelhead (Rainbow Trout) that are found in good numbers throughout the western basin of Lake Ontario.
Soon our fishing mate commences to set the down riggers, rods and terminal tackle – you can participate or just relax as the lines are laid. In due course a rod tips up and the crew sings “fish on”. The line screams out as the mate passes you the rod to take up the challenge. Guy Smith has been teaching people to fish for over forty years and these are the days that dreams are made of!”
An added bonus when you book a charter with either Boomers Sporting Adventures orUp4Fishing charters is that from July 7th to August 25th, during the 15th Annual Great Ontario Salmon Derby, you could hook a “Big One” and reel in the weekly or derby winning salmon and be rewarded with a new car for your efforts. Your Derby license, a $100 value, is included in your fishing adventure. Lake Ontario fishing opportunities just don’t get better than this! To book your adventure: phone 289- 838- 8669.

Up4Fishn charter, a family owned and operated fishing charter, with owner Larry Zimmerman at the helm, is always “up for fishn!. Their new boat, “Fish Pursuit”, is a 2011, 29 foot Seaswirl Striper and is powered by twin 250 HP Mercury Verado motors to get you to the fish quickly. We have Scotty electric down riggers mounted and many rod holders. There is plenty of space and comfort to make your day an enjoyable one.
Last week Up4Fishn caught three wonderful trophy Chinook salmon during their morning on Lake Ontario. Fishing the western end of Lake Ontario, Fish Persuit is docked at the Bronte Outer Harbour Marina which is located at 2340 Ontario Street Oakville Ontario Canada. “We can head out to the Port Credit area and fish there and the area between the Credit River and Bronte for Salmon. We can also head out to the St Catherines area for big Lake Trout.” To book your trip with Up4Fishn visit: www.up4fishn.com or call 905-464-5436.
A recommendation: “Would like to thank up4fishin for an amazing day on the lake. You have an amazing boat, perfect for fishing the day away! And the steelhead we caught made for a delicious fish-fry!! Thanks again, and we will definitely be back!!
