The Captains most important concern is the safety of his customers. If the weather is bad enough to not leave the dock, we will wait it out for a period of time that is acceptable to both customer and Captain. If the weather stays bad for the entire day, I will gladly re-book your trip to another day or refund your deposit.
There are all types of lodging within walking distance to the boat. B&B´s, cottages, bunk room type lodge, private lodge. There is also the Sodus Lake House for larger groups and families. Something for everyone at every price range.
A valid NYS fishing license is mandatory on Lake Ontario. Please purchase your fishing license before arriving in Sodus Point.
My Coast Guard license allows me to take 6 passengers for hire. The average group is 3 or 4 passengers.
Of course. We have several groups that come and the ladies will read a book and enjoy the sunshine while there husbands catch the biggest fish of their lives. And visa-versa. We do Lake and dinner cruises also, so everyone can just enjoy the sights of our area.
The Captain suggests you bring a large cooler to transport your catch at the end of the day. The fish will be cleaned and bagged for you before you leave the boat.
Bring whatever you want to eat or drink on the boat. Soda, beer, water, juice are all fine. Please no hard liquor.
We like to leave the dock at 6:00AM. We normally do not need to travel very far from Sodus Point to begin fishing. We will return to the dock at 2:00PM. On a half day trip we will return to the dock at 11:00AM. Longer days are available at a rate of $75.00 per hour.
That choice is yours to make. From past experiences, younger children do get bored rather quickly. But we do love to help teach kids how to fish.
Yes there are. Below deck there is a clean private stand up head for your privacy and comfort.
There are several. Pizza shops, sub shops, sandwich shops, full dining restaurants, bar food establishments. You name it and Sodus Point has it. For some of the places, you can click here and scroll down to the Sodus/Sodus Point section.
Again, you name it and it´s not far. Go-karts, miniature golf, championship golf courses, casinos, outlet malls, theaters, Finger Lakes wineries. For a complete list of attractions, go to the Wayne County Tourism web site.
