The Captain

My name is Capt. Michael Deslandes

I have been fishing Lake Ontario for over 15 years and before that Lake Champlain. My love for fishing brought me to be a full-time captain. My goal for each trip is to make memories for my clients and to watch the smiles on there faces while enjoying a fun filled day on the water!


Our Vessel

The "Down N' Tight" A.K.A Holy Instigator is a Pursuit 3400 Offshore with an overall length of 36ft and an impressive 13ft she is made for the big water. The Down N' Tight is powered by twin 454 Marine Power engines.

Fishing Seasons



In April and May our primary target is Brown Trout and Lake Trout. 

Early June

Once we get into June our thermocline begins to setup and we start fishing more Lake Trout offshore with Steelhead mixed in.



By the end of June into July we start seeing our King Salmon arrive and we begin fishing for mixed bags of King Salmon, Coho Salmon, and Steelhead offshore and also have the opportunity for big summer Browns given the right conditions.


Once we get later into the season in Late August and September we fish strictly for King and Coho Salmon that have come back inside 100ft of water to head toward the rivers to spawn.
