Welcome to

716 SportFishing

The place to be for charter sport fishing in the '716' area code!
Welcome to the 716 Sport Fishing website!
This Tuesday - Friday are my last days open this month. The big mature salmon arrived! Also the LOC derby is going on.. biggest salmon caught by September 4th wins $25,000! Get ahold of me to set up your charter!

19' Starcraft FishMaster added to the fleet of 716 Sportfishing! The season never ends now.

We are booking Salmon and Trout charters in the Niagara River, starting mid September all the way through April/May! If trolling for these fish is not your favorite way to fish then come try a Niagara River trip, where everything is hands on and on light tackle!

Nothing beats feeling a King Salmon or steelhead try to rip the rod out of your hands!

Lake Ontario fishing out of Olcott is excellent right now! A lot of big and hungry fish around our port right NOW. It doesn't get much better.

We have open upcoming weekend AND weekday dates still available for this spring and early summer. Get ahold of us ASAP to save a date before they are gone!

Here is our boat at 716 Sportfishing. A 32' Trojan Yacht.
There's a ton of room for comfort and fishing aboard the Trojan.

Book a trip and come check it out!
We are your source for Great Lakes Charter fishing!
Founded by Captain Matt Bedient, we specialize in charter fishing in and around the waters of one of the largest fresh water lakes, Lake Ontario.

Captain Matt is 'Professional Fisherman' and Captain and is a USCG 'Certified' Great Lakes Captain.

We will be posting pictures and short descriptions below this season, as time allows... meaning when we aren't busy running charters! Check back often!

Another good day yesterday!

Managed to put a few more kings on the boat and dropped a couple as well. Lake trout continue to bite for us also! King Salmon are going to be taking over our end of the lake very soon! Don't miss it! Call us or message us here (716) 946-3578 or (716) 361-1012

First King of the year... CHECK!

We had a consistent steady pick today between endless coho salmon, lake trout, and the king salmon! Only gets better from here! A few dates still available in May. The way things are going you're not going to want to miss out on it! Call us or message us here with any questions concerning open dates and pricing!

Our clients say ...

"I had the pleasure of going out with Capt. Matt along with three of my buddies and I honestly can't say enough good things about the guy he was very professional and extremely knowledgeable and had us all on a bunch of fish! Matt made it all around a great experience for all of us and I will definitely be booking my next trip with him. Thank you again Capt. Matt!!"

Captain Matt says...

"I've been fishing Lake Ontario since before I can even remember with my Father. I fish every day, year round, rain or shine.

'716 Sport Fishing' is about getting out and seeing the reactions from people getting their first Lake Salmon or Lake Trout, ever! There's nothing quite like it."
