Come fish beautiful Lake Champlain with Capt. Mike Tarasavage and iFishLakeChamplain fishing charters. Capt. Mike has been fishing on this lake for over 40 years and loves sharing his passion for fishing with all customers. You will not be disappointed when you book a trip with this professional and full-time charter. Lakers, Bass, Salmon, Walleye and Perch are all waiting for you to hook up! Book today!

iFishLakeChamplain was started by Capt. Mike in 2013 with the goal of sharing and teaching other outdoor enthusiasts the joys of fishing Lake Champlain. As an avid angler before turning professional Captain, Mike spent several years fishing privately and commercially all around New York and Alaska. He now focuses solely on Lake Champlain, fishing every day whether he’s guiding a charter or not.

Four passengers fish comfortably aboard Capt. Mike’s 21ft Sport Fisherman. He keeps this vessel clean, equipped with all up-to-date safety equipment, and loaded with bait in the livewell for your charter. GPS and Fishfinder navigation help us track down the schools of Salmon and Trout, and we’ll have lines in the water in no time. Downriggers are also available for our trolling trips. Other techniques offered by iFishLakeChamplain include bottom fishing, drift fishing, spinning, and jigging. No experience required for using any equipment or gear, Capt. Mike is happy to teach and explain.

Your group can choose a four hour fishing package, or six hour fishing package. All packages include your fishing gear, bait, lures, and tackle. You will need to bring your own food and drinks for the day in a small cooler, as well as clothes that are appropriate for the weather (light hoodie or rain jacket). Don’t forget your New York fishing license, all anglers over the age of 16 must have one if they are planning on fishing.

Depending on the season, iFishLakeChamplain offers Bass, Pike, Lake Trout, and Salmon fishing in Lake Champlain, New York. Lake Champlain is known for its amazing Salmon fishery and is a magnet for anglers from all over the Northeast. New York shares this incredible lake with Vermont, and a bit with Canada. It’s one of the largest freshwater lakes of North America, and we are so thrilled to guide your family to a great day of memorable fishing!

Capt. Mike earned his Coast Guard Captains License so that he could start iFishLakeChamplain fishing charters and share his joy and passion with others. He’s great with kids and enjoys fishing with families, as well as those hard-core anglers who like a little competition. Whether you’re looking for a serious day of fishing or a relaxing day reeling in a few keepers, let iFishLakeChamplain customize your perfect Lake Champlain fishing trip! Book today.
