    Salmon fishing charters on Lake Ontario can be  safe and  lots of fun for families, if everyone involves prepares properly for their trip. 

    Remember that for the safety of your child, children 12-years old and younger are required to wear a Type II PFD(personal floation device) at all times while onboard our charter fishing vessel, the Fish Doctor.   Although your Captain carries the USCG required number of youth size Type I PFDs aboard the Fish Doctor, they are very uncomfortable for children to wear over extended periods of time.  There are also two youth size Type I PFDs onboard, but to assure the proper fitting Type II PFDs for the children in your fishing party, parents/adults should bring proper fitting PFDs with them on charter fishing trips.

    Sea sickness is a serious issue that ruins many charter fishing trips on the Great Lakes.  Kids especially tend to get sea sick, but so can adults.  To avoid ruining your trip because of a a queasy stomach,  follow these simple rules;

    1. Be sure that everyone takes Dramamine before your charter trip, as directed on the packaging label.  Taking dramine after you get on the boat is too late.

    2. An alternative, if you tend toward motion sickness, is a medicated patch prescribed by your doctor and applied as directed, well before departure on your trip.

    2.  Get a decent night’s sleep before your charter trip

    3. Most folks pay dearly for excessive partying the night before your trip

    4. Avoid heavy,  greasy meals at supper and breakfast before your trip

    Proper preparation helps assure a fun fishing trip, with no problems.
