Enveloped in cool lake winds and showers of sunlight, Bait Master Charters' boats have sailed the waters of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario since 1992. Each of the company's two fishing boats boasts cabins, private bathrooms, and decks, along with professional downriggers, outriggers, planer boards, and dipsy divers. Onboard, experienced fishermen guide customers on private fishing charters, scouring Lake Erie for walleye, bass, and perch or combing Lake Ontario for salmon, steelhead, brown trout, lake trout, and gold coins. Upon the trip's closure, the staff cleans and packages all catches so that customers can bring them home to cook.

Canadian Trophy Fishing Adventures fulfills anglers' dreams of reeling in thrashing fish worthy of bragging about during a job interview. Captains Aaron and Leo and their guides welcome groups of all experience levels aboard well-appointed vessels to cast lines for chinook (king) salmon, rainbow trout, walleye, and other species. Destinations shift seasonally to follow fish populations: groups venture to Lake Simcoe's ice-fishing huts in the winter and to Bluffer's Park Marina in the summer.

On six wind-swept acres of sprawling green grass and leafy trees, two half-acre ponds shimmer and occasionally ripple as rainbow trout pierce the surface in search of tiny winged dinners. The scenery is pleasant, but the trout are the stars of the show at Burd’s Family Fishing resort where anglers of all kinds cast lines into well-stocked ponds in hopes of big catches. The staff provides all equipment including a rod and bait, allowing new fisherman to try out the sport without investing in expensive gear and a “Gone Fishing” garage door cover. They also clean the incandescent fish for free and bag them on ice for easy transport. Rod-reelers need only pay admission and a fee per hooked trout. Visitors can also take a respite from angling to picnic among the pastoral landscape and tranquil ponds by bringing their own lunch.
