TSI Charters is a family operated fishing charter service with over 60 years of combined sport fishing experience on Lake Ontario for Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho (Silver) Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead.
Capt. Joe Orsen created the business with one simple goal – To provide you and your guests a safe and memorable sport fishing experience while pursuing that trophy fish of a lifetime.
Captains Joe and Jason have been fishing Lake Ontario and the surrounding tributaries since the 1980’s. We have also fished the NYS Finger Lakes, Catskill and Adirondack waters since the mid 1970’s.
We are licensed by the United States Coast Guard with a Master’s endorsement and are NYS Licensed Guides with Red Cross First Aid/CPR certification. In addition, we are members of the National Association of Charter Boat Operators, Great Lakes Sport Fishing Council and Eastern Lake Ontario salmon & Trout Association .
