Our Charter Boat is a 1987 Penn Yan Predator, her name is “Locked Up”. Penn Yan has always been known as a manufacturer of well built Boats meant to catch fish. Her overall length is close to 30 feet and has a large 10 ft beam for spacious comfortable fishing and is equipped to get you out of elements. Locked Up is powered by reliable twin inboard engines with plenty of horsepower to get us to the fish and back to the dock Fast when needed. The boat weighs over 8,000 lbs and will cut through some of the toughest conditions Lake Ontario can throw at us. It also has a fully enclosed marine head for your peace of mind while on the water.


You won’t find a safer, better equipped or more comfortable charter boat for serious fishing. This is the ultimate big water fishing weapon that really handles the roughest seas and is the most important tool that we use in catching fish. The boat is also equipped with all the necessary coast guard approved equipment for our safety while on the water.

As far as fishing goes we have nothing but the best in tackle and gear. We make sure all rods and reels are in top of line shape so that you have nothing to worry about but the fish on the other end of the line!
