Suspicious Lines Charters

Capt. Ryan Horst Sodus Point, NY Incorporated Licensed Insured

Welcome to Suspicious Lines Charters. We are a full-time summer fishing charter in Sodus Point, New York specializing in small group charters (4 people or less). We begin our trips as soon as the ice melts out and then fish through September. During the months of May and June we run trips close to shore, mainly for brown trout and lake trout. On occasion, the King Salmon will show up! Once the summer hits, we primarily target King Salmon over 20 pounds! Brown trout and steelhead are also a target through the summer. Captain Ryan Horst has been fishing Lake Ontario for over 20 years and will promise to give you a great New York fishing experience. We also offer taxidermy to get your trophy on the wall!

After fishing with Captain Ryan you’ll be “hooked” for life! He runs a 24ft Sport Fisherman with wide beam. It has the speed to get us to the fishing grounds and plenty of room to fish. Downriggers help our trolling techniques, and the Captain and First Mate will help you with every aspect of the trip: from baiting the hook to dehooking your catch. There is a head onboard if anyone needs a bathroom break. And we also provide a small cooler if you want to bring any food or drinks for the day.

Suspicious Lines Charters offers Blitz Trips – shorter trips for those wanting a quick fishing trip. These run about 4-5 hours and stay close to shore. We fish mainly Lake Trout and Brown Trout, but occasionally hook up with a Steelhead or Salmon. Summer trips are typically six hour excursions and can either leave early morning (around 5:30am) or afternoon (around 2pm). All trips are for four passengers (due to USCG regulations, we can’t have more than four on the boat). You don’t need any experience, and we welcome kids of all ages!

Fishing Lake Ontario is always a fun way to spend the day. Whether you’re with your family, friends, or coworkers, our Captain and Crew will work hard to make sure you have a successful day of catching fish and making memories. You’ll need to bring a valid New York fishing license for anyone over 16 years old. So bring your food and drinks, hats and sunglasses, and attitude for adventure! I’ll take videos but feel free to bring your camera along as well. We’ll have a great day fishing Lake Ontario and you’ll want to capture the memories.

Captain Ryan and First Mate will make sure everything is ready for a great day of trolling Lake Ontario. All you need to do is show up and get ready to start reeling in the monster trophies we’re sure to see. Feel free to talk with the Captain before your trip if you have any questions.

Reserve your trip early, we tend to book up fast… especially during summer peak seasons! Book today and let’s go fishing!
