The captains of Scales and Tales have been fishing for salmon together for more than 25 from everywhere from Canada's East to West coast and abroad. Our captains are dedicated to ensuring you receive the first-class charter experience on Lake Ontario that you deserve!

Scott Captain Pic


Fishing has taken Scott from the rivers and lakes of the east coast to the farthest reaches of the west coast! He has now set his sights on Lake Ontario’s largest salmon tournaments! He is always fun and always competitive! Scott wants every trip you take with Scales And Tales to be exactly the experience you asked for!

Steve Captain Pic


Steve caught the fishing bug early in life and over the past 40+ years has fished from Panama to northern BC, from sailfish on the fly to bonefish on the flats. Now his passion is big Chinook salmon on Lake Ontario which he calls home. Come spend a day with Captain Steve for a chance to be part of catching a $100K salmon in the Silver Salmon Challenge.



Mike grew up on the St. Lawrence fishing Pike and Musky; however, he was hooked the first time he tied into a Lake Ontario Chinook. That was over 20 years ago and still going strong. Mike runs his 24’ Striper out of the Scarborough Bluffs, and we are excited for him to join our team.

Joe Captain Pic


Captain Joe's fishing addiction started at the young age of 6 when he caught his first muskie. From that point, he would go with his dad every chance he had and work to become the multi-species specialist he is. From salmon and steelhead to musky and walleye and all species in between, there are no fish safe from Joe the trophy hunter. His #1 priority is putting his clients on their personal best trophy fish. Captain Joe is bilingual, in French and English.
