Captain Bob Eder,   U.S.C.G. MASTER LICENSED

30 plus years of fishing experience on Lake Ontario and her tributaries. Including several Lake Ontario fishing derby accomplishments, to include the ESLO,LOC, as well as Niagara and Orleans County Derbies.


A short fish tale- Eleven years ago Jack, a good friend and fellow fisherman and I were fall derby fishing, recreationally, on his boat, the "Agitator." An hour or so into the trip, while I was attempting to take some photographs of another boat, the port corner rod popped, indicating a strike, as the drag of the reel screamed. As I attempted to take one last photo, Jack exclaimed, "Bob, throw that #%&*^ camera overboard and get that rod!" Instead of throwing the camera overboard I calmly sat it down on top of the fish cooler and proceeded to pull the fishing rod from it's holder. Ofcourse the fish was gone. Needless to say the boat was quiet for awhile before feelings were amended with some shared coffee, and morning treats. This was the same year that I made the decision to purchase the boat I currently own. The photo I was attempting to take is the same photo located in the upper lefthanded corner of this web page, of the "Shotgun" boat.. This is just one short fond memory I have accumulated over the years while fishing the waters of Lake Ontario. Hopefully this helps to explain the passion I have for being on that water........Hope to see you there!   

Capt. Bob Eder, U.S.C.G. Master License                                 
I've been chasing salmon and trout on Lake Ontario and her tributaries for 30 plus years. Ten years ago I decided to venture into the business end of the sport, strickly on a limited basis. One of my main passions in life is fishing for large salmon and trout on the waters of Lake Ontario. Please allow myself, and crew to place a smile on your face and a big fish on the end of your line, while enjoying a relaxing day on the water. Passion is a huge word in this paragraph. I do not do this just as a full time occupation, rather, I do this for the love of the sport, as well as simply being on the water. If I ever loose the passion, I attempt to pass along to my clients, I will quit. I thank GOD for the opportunity to fulfill this passion..............Regards,  Captain Bob Eder
