Why Book A Charter?

You can book a charter for a fraction of the cost of owning and maintaining your own boat and equipment. Fishing with an experienced captain and crew, who are on the water on a regular basis, allows you to fish with the latest equipment and techniques, on a boat equipped with all the up to date safety equipment allows you to relax catch fish and have fun.


Your deposit of $75 can be mailed to Po Box 461  Fredonia NY 14063. Please do not mail to marina address. Thank You.


 We normally leave the dock at 6:45 a.m. But we are flexible other departure time can be arranged.

What Do I Need To Bring With Me?

For your charter you will need


  • A valid New York State Fishing License. Licenses are available for purchase at Chadwick Bay Marina, or online at the New York State DEC website (www.dec.ny.gov).
  • Food and beverages of your choice (please limit your group to 1 cooler 54-quart maximum). Please, no glass bottles.
  • Seasickness medication if needed. Please remember to take it early enough to start working before the charter.
  • Soft soled shoes or sneakers.
  • Sunblock/sunglasses.
  • Camera or video camera.
  • Appropriate clothing including hat/raingear. Always be prepared for changing the weather. Our boat has plenty of shade/shelter but, you will be landing fish in the rear of the boat which opens.
  • Cooler to transport your catch home.
  • If you have a particular music preference, bring your iPod or CD along. We would be glad to play it on our stereo.
