About Us

Captain Matt Bell, USCG Master Captain

Black Jack Charters offers trips for up to 6 anglers. We provide all fishing equipment and gear. Our boat is equipped with the best safety gear available as well as USCG licensed and trained captains. Captain Matt Bell, from Central PA, has travelled to Lake Ontario for 15+ years, spending hundreds of hours on the Lake, fishing with some of the best captains alive.
“It’s my promise to provide you with a great fishing trip, each and every time. Black Jack Charters is a passion that I love to share with each and every angler who steps aboard my vessel. I can’t wait to meet you and get you out on the water!” – Capt. Matt Bell


The Eastern Basin of Lake Ontario produces some of the largest Trophy Catches around. We fish from April to October, starting as soon as the ice is off the lake, on the Southern Shore at Sodus Point with some high-action Brown Trout fishing. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish such as Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and Salmon of the Chinook (King). You’ll also find Coho and Atlantic species in these waters.
We move west to Wilson, in May, where you can get your King Salmon, early. We pride ourselves in following the Kings and ending up in the Salmon River at the famous Lighthouse Marina from June to October. Fishing with us means as the day goes on, the giant beauties turn into the biggest smiles, memories, and table fair like no other adventure.
