 Credentials are important when landing a job, and I think they should be equally important when picking a Captain/Charter Boat! Captain's Rick and Craig operate one of the top money winning teams on Lake Ontario in fishing tournaments. We offer the benefits of years of experience gained from time on the water, and networking with other top performing captains from around Lake Ontario. We have also built working relationships with many top manufacturers in the industry to aid in giving our customers the best gear to get the job done!

Our Crazy Mission

At Crazy Yankee Sportfishing we can give you the opportunity to catch that TROPHY fish for the wall, or assist you in building long lasting memories with family and/or friends chartering on Lake Ontario. It isn't always about the great fishing, but it is about the great times had while chartering our vessel. That is one thing we will GUARANTEE! 

Crazy Company Profile

Hello, we are the Hajecki's and it's our job to put fish in the boat! We follow the Chinook Salmon migration down Lake Ontario's south shore to insure you have the best possible chance at catching those Trophy fish. We put ourselves in prime waters during prime times, and that's what separates us from the rest. Putting fish in the boat  isn't the easiest thing to do on some days.  By using our combined 40+ years of experience, and networking with other charter captains we can put together a successful catch by the end of your trip.

 

Possible Charter Occasions:

  • You just want to go Fishing!
  • Bachelor party's
  • You're looking for something different to do with either friends or family.
  • We have hosted charters that consist of Corporate team building events.  Keep the computers at work and come enjoy a day away from the office possibly discussing business, and learning how to work with fellow co-workers.
  • Looking for a perfect Wedding anniversary present for your husband?  Take him fishing for the day!  I can guarantee he will never forget that gift!
  • Now a days video games are controlling our kids. How about doing something with your kids that will get them out of the house and pull them away from Wii or Playstation 2!  They will never forget the day their Mom and/or Dad took them fishing!

 

 

More about us!
 
We do our very best to run a top notch charter service. If you don't leave happy we didn't do our job, and we can assure you that no one has ever left not completely filled with memories and excitement. Not only do we catch fish for people, but we also help people catch fish. Yes, thats right. People that own their own boats and gear come fish with us to hone in their skills. We feel it's important to teach others what we have learned, so more people can enjoy the great resource in Lake Ontario. At Crazy Yankee Sportfishing we also take pride in working with many forward thinking companies to consistently improve current products and develop new ones. I hope you can see that we aren't a one dimensional business! We try to put back as much, or more, than what we take out! That's important to us!
