716 SportFishing

The place to be for charter sport fishing in the '716' area code!

Here you can learn a bit 'About Us'!

Early on, our Captain Matt Bedient, was introduced to the joys of fishing by his father. The excitement of 'catching his first fish', the joy of finding the 'perfect' fishing spot where the fish always bite, the sense of accomplishment in returning home after a day of fishing with 'tonight's dinner'! That was the start of something big!

Matt went on to fish ... and fish ... and fish some more, learning the 'secrets' of being a great fisherman, honing the skills he'd learned and developing the techniques he knew he needed to become a great fishing guide.

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

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."
