Our Boat and Equipment

1st Choice Charter Lund

I am a full-time United States Coast Guard approved, licensed, Master Charter Captain, I am fully insured and my fishing equipment is top of the line. I run a luxury 21′ Lund fishing machine powered with a 225 HP Mercury motor also a Mercury Kicker motor 15 hp (when needed) equipped with Cannon down-riggers and rod holders (depending on fish species) when needed, Minn Kota Trolling Motor (The New Ulterra), Lowrance sonar electronics and VHF marine radio and now with Sirius XM Radio and Sirius Weather for up to the minute weather and for your safety.

If you’ve never fished the Niagara River, you are in for giant surprise and big fish. The fast moving water flowing from Lake Erie over Niagara Falls and into Lake Ontario generates large amounts of oxygen, creating optimized habitat in the Lower Niagara River for fish to thrive at all times of the year.

The Niagara Bar, where the Lower Niagara river reaches Lake Ontario, is known around the country for multiple species of fish as they congregate there at specific times of the year. During these hot fishing periods, you are in for incredible, drag-screaming, fish-catching good times!

I provide you with safe, quality access to this great fishery 12 months of the year. We fish both the American and the Canadian sides of the Niagara River.

One important thing to remember, you will need a fishing license for New York and if you would like to fish the Canadian side of the Niagara River, you must also have a Canadian fishing license.
