Meet captain John
Captain John Mastrandrea will be your fishing guide on every trip. He has the technical know-how, Lake Ontario fishing experience, and personality to make your guided fishing trip a success. He has been a worldwide multi-species angler since he was a child and is an all-around nice guy. He fishes everywhere and anywhere – from British Columbia’s white Sturgeon to Thailand’s giant Mekong Catfish to Cuba’s Barracuda to Vietnam’s Siamese carp and has fished countless lakes and rivers in Japan, North America, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle-East, Central America, and the Caribbean. He lives and breathes fishing!
John is a lifelong Niagara resident. He started fishing before he could walk in the late 1970s on the Upper Niagara River. During the 1980s and 1990s, John spent his free time fishing all of Niagara’s great waterways –the Whirlpool, Queenston Docks, Port Dalhousie, and beyond. Since 1998, John found his passion actively fishing the waters of Lake Ontario for Chinook and Coho Salmon, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Lake Trout and is an avid multi-species angler throughout the year.
Your safety is our top concern. You can rest assured knowing you will be accompanied by an experienced and seasoned fishing guide on your fishing charter. Captain John’s extensive certifications and memberships include:
When he’s not fishing, Captain John is a full time 20+ year business, auto, marine, and home insurance broker licensed in the province of Ontario and enjoys spending time with his wife and three young children (on the water, fishing, of course!).
