A Message from the Captain .  .  .


            I personally invite you to fish Lake Ontario aboard the RODMASTER.  I grew up fishing Lake Ontario, since the inception of the trout and salmon program, and I’ve guided thousands of successful fishing trips on Lake Ontario and on the NYS Finger Lakes as well. This has given me a tremendous amount of diversity, which has contributed to my success.   I’ve spent countless hours refining tactics, techniques and equipment, and have learned how to deal with all the factors that contribute to catching trophy fish consistently – day in, day out.  Fishing is not what I chose as an occupation - I don’t view this as my ‘job’ – it is what I was born to do! You will quickly see why 110% effort is the RODMASTER trademark.  I truly enjoy the challenge!


            If you’re serious about fishing, LET’S GO!  We’re going to fish hard, have a fun day on the water, and you’ll have my personal and professional attention from start to finish!  I look forward to having you aboard!”
