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."
