2019 Fish Doctor Charters Finale  

(Click to enlarge)

Well, Fish Doctor anglers, after 42 years fishing Lake Ontario, 31 of those charter fishing full time, plus another 6 years part time, Fish Doctor Charters is pulling the plug and handing the wheel over to Capt. Kevin Keller, who operates Fish Chopper Charters, <>.

Captain Kevin and I will be working together as co-captains on the Fish Doctor in 2019 on days when he isn’t doing charters on his 33-foot Wellcraft. I consider Kevin one of the top two trout and salmon captains on eastern Lake Ontario. There is no captain on Lake Ontario who I respect any more for his ability to catch fish and show Fish Doctor anglers a safe, fun time on the water.

I have agreed to work with Capt. Kevin aboard the Fish Chopper as time permits in 2020, a great opportunity for me share some time on the water with many of my Fish Doctor regulars and friends.

Over the years, Fish Doctor Charters did somewhere around 4,890 Lake Ontario trips, many of them in the early days with Capt. Carol aboard. That’s a lot of fishing and a lot of friendships with a lot of fine folks. Thank you for your trust and support that made this possible. I hope to see you aboard Capt. Kevin’s Fish Chopper in 2020.

2019 Season Jump Starts with April-May Kings  
As any of you Fish Doctor anglers know, you can usually count on good fishing for brown trout and lake trout, along with a few cohos, rainbows, and Atlantics fishing out of Oswego in April. However, most years, king salmon don’t show up until early May or even later.

Surprise! Our first 3-year old king this season came thrashing aboard the Fish Doctor in a landing net on April 18 and the April and early May king salmon fishing since has been the best I’ve seen since 2012. Up to 7-9 kings per trip, along with plenty of 3-year old browns, plus a few lakes have made for some nice looking coolers of great eating trout and salmon.

Through the rest of the 2019 season until late August, the Fish Doctor will continue to fish out of Oswego. Then, we’ll move to the lower Little Salmon River, closer to the heavy concentration of kings and cohos staged in Mexico Bay.
