Welcome to

716 SportFishing

The place to be for charter sport fishing in the '716' area code!
Welcome to 716 Sport Fishing and our new website!

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

Some more hard water action! Counting down the days until it's trolling season!

A large upgrade recently took place here at 716 Sportfishing.. we added this 32' Trojan Yacht to our arsenal. The 25' Sportcraft has been replaced by this. There's a ton of room for comfort and fishing aboard the Trojan.

Book a trip and come check it out!

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."
