Sodus Point features a relaxed atmosphere for those looking to unwind. A short drive will put you into the middle of plenty of day-time fun and activities for the whole family to enjoy. There are plenty of nearby restaurants (don't miss Captain Jack's Goodtime Tavern and Abe's Waterfront Boat House Bar and Grill, a semi-private golf course (Sodus Bay Heights Golf Club), public beaches with lifeguards, and quite a few nearby vinyards. And if you're looking for night-time action, then Sodus Point is the place to be, offering great dining and bars with outside decks over-looking beautiful Sodus Bay and live entertainment.

Fishing Lake Ontario is fun for everyone! Bring the whole family! Over the last 35 years Lake Ontario and its tributaries have developed into a WORLD CLASS FISHERY. It has become one of the top freshwater fishing destinations in the world! Now that you found us, and are learning about to our area, who we are, and what we offer, we hope to see you soon!

Everyone's Catching Fish Aboard the Osprey I!

A fishing trip aboard the Osprey I has been the thrill of a life time for many! I've been fishing Lake Ontario for over 35 years. Living on the lake keeps me on top of all the hot spots and changing conditions of Lake Ontario. Trout, Salmon, Steelheads or Bass, catch that fish of a life time! Full- and half-day charters and lodging are available. I run from April through October, seven days a week. My promise to you is 110% of my experience and effort to make your charter a most rewarding and memorable experience.

2013 was a great fishing season. We're gearing up for 2014 and taking reservations. We start fishing the first week of April. Hope to see you soon.
