Times Two Great Lakes Charters                                      Dunkirk, New York

Times Two Great Lakes Charters, specializes in offering a Great Lakes charter fishing experience to groups   of 1-4 anglers.   Our season begins on Lake Ontario out of Wilson, NY for the month of May, targeting king salmon, coho salmon, brown trout, steelhead and lake trout.   Some great spring fishing!

We move back home to Dunkirk, NY on Lake Erie from early June thru the end of September.   Walleye is the primary target here, but we also can catch steelhead, lake trout and the occasional brown trout.

Your Charter Experience
A charter fishing trip with Captain John begins with an early morning rendezvous at Chadwick Bay Marina in Dunkirk. By the time you meet up with us at the boat slip we have already checked the weather and wave conditions, and talked with our fellow captains about where the best place is to start your day and get on the fish!  The boat is rigged and ready to roll!

Depending on the time of year, and the weather/wind conditions, we'll be fishing anywhere from right out in front of the harbor, to 10-12 miles down the lake.   Typically, though, our first run will be 10-15 minutes, or a couple of miles out.

Our fishing method is trolling, using a wide variety of techniques and tackle including downriggers, planner boards, slide divers and/or dipsey divers, jet planners, braided line, wire line, lead core line, Dreamweaver spoons, Bay Rat Lures and worm harnesses.  All of our Okuma rods and reels feature GAMMA line and flourocarbon leaders.  Needless to say, our tackle is all up to date!   Depending on conditions and crew aboard, our typical spread will be as many as eleven (11) lines, and as few as four (4).

Typically, the Captain or mate will be the first to spot a strike, but it is not unusual for one of our anglers to hop up and grab
a rod when the next big one hits!

We view your day on the lake as fishing WITH US, not us fishing for you.  Seeing the smiles on the faces of our clients makes our day as enjoyable for us as it is for you.  We are very fortunate to be able to enjoy a great Lake Erie fishery, and countless days on the lake, and are glad that YOU have chosen to spend time aboard with US!

Come On, Let's Go Fishing!  
What's New for 2015?

We are very excited to announce that we have been added to the Bay Ray Lures Pro-Staff for 2015!   Thanks to James and the whole Bay Rat gang!

Bay Rats are a great stickbait for use on Lake Erie and Ontario, and are made right down the road in Erie, PA!


In addition, we remain on the pro-staff of a couple other
great companies!   Dreamweaver Lures and GAMMA line!
