The Best Benefits Of Our Service


We Simply Love to Fish!


Our Pride Shows!


We Are Good At What We Do!


We Do Everything In Our Power to Ensure You Enjoy Your Time With Us!


Our Greatest Thrill Comes From Our Clients Catching Fish!


We Are A Full Time 7 Day a Week Operation! (Since 1998)

Our Fishing Machine!

Our Family Fishing Charter Service operates on the clean waters of Lake Huron off the shores of beautiful Kincardine, Ontario, Canada. (Where you can eat what you catch!) We target Chinook, Coho Salmon, Rainbow, Brown and Lake Trout. A few incidental catches have included Pink Salmon, Walleye and Perch.

Our customers' needs are first and of the utmost importance to us and our entire crew is committed to meeting these needs. As a result, a high percentage of our bookings are from repeat customers and referrals.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you one of the best services in our industry.

You will fish in comfort on board our 30' Reinell Fly Bridge Sport Fisherman Vessel!
The ladies will appreciate the convenience of our Head (Washroom), Comfortable Cabin including a Microwave! They can even sun themselves on the Fly Bridge or Bow! Almost all the comforts of home!
Please remember that you may enjoy a "hot meal" with the use of our microwave oven!

Have a Smartphone, MP 3 Player, IPod, CD etc. Bring it along and we will play your favorite music for you. Captain Rick

In fact we can play a DVD Movie for you or the children if you wish
(Just in case they need to settle down from all the Fishing Excitement)

We are on the water a great deal of the time and know where the fish are likely to be!

Fantastic boat for any Corporate or Large Group Requirements! Plus, we will impress the normal 4 Person Charter. I like to say we could have a dance in the cabin!

We have room for 12 people with a stand up head (bathroom), fridge, microwave and running water.

We do everything humanly possible to ensure you enjoy your "Fishing Adventure" with us!

Departure times are completely flexible to meet your needs.

For the avid fishermen we recommend "The Earlier The Better". This means 5:00 A.M. during the summer and somewhat later in the other months! This allows us to catch the early bite which usually occurs at dawn.

We recommend 7 a.m. be your latest morning departure time for any month of the season.

All fishing and safety equipment is supplied; please bring along your fishing license, soft soled shoes, proper attire for the elements, lunch & refreshments. (No Bananas Please) We also recommend a cooler to pack your fish. A small optional gratuity to our cleaner will result in your catch being cleaned professionally as fillets, steaks or otherwise prepared as per your request.

Our success rates: 2016 - 100%...2015 - 100%...2014 - 98.5% ... 2013 - 98% ...
2012 - 97% ... 2011 & 2010 - 96% ... 2009 - 97% ... 2008 - 95% ... 2007 & 2006 - 98%!

Give Us A Try! You Will Be Glad That You Did!


We always have two Crew Members which ensures you have a Captain at the helm & a Co-Captain operating the fishing equipment & assisting you in catching fish. Both also complete additional tasks to ensure your trip is safe & enjoyable!


It is our opinion that one person cannot operate the vessel and fishing equipment at the same time. In fact it is impossible to offer clients safety and the best chance of catching fish with only one crew member.


Our methods result in improved service and safety to our clients, not to mention a better catch ratio! The only arguments you may hear are our father & son crew discussing whom the best fishermen is! (Trust me, its the Captain!)


Remember, we pride ourselves at being good at what we do! We are not satisfied unless we are the best boat on the water!


Our aim is for a safe & enjoyable trip with guests fighting fish! This of course is why we insist on two crew members!


Hours include travel time to our fishing area which is usually 10 to 20 minutes. We are very lenient on this and you will likely be on the water for 5 1/2 to 6 hours.


Please note hours begin at the scheduled departure time.


Our vessel is outfitted with top of the line safety, navigational & fish finding equipment including 4 Cannon Digi Troll Downriggers, 3 GPS/Fishfinders, 2 Registered VHF DSC Radios, 2 Cell Phones, Autopilot, 2 Chevy 350 I/O's Motors. (New 2016 & 2011)


We exceed the Canadian Coast Guard Safety Regulations, our vessel is inspected annually and we are fully Charter Insured.


Your Captain & Co-Captain are First Aid/CPR trained & have attained the following Marine Certifications:

Small Vessel Operator Proficiency Safety Certificate (SVOP)
Small Non-Pleasure Vessel Marine Emergency Duties Certificate (MED A3)
Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime) ROC(M) with DSC Endorsement

Your Captain
has also completed the following training:
Canadian Coast Guard Search & Rescue (SAR Level 1)
Canadian Power Squadron Piloting Course
OPP Marine Basic, Advanced (Launch 2) Operator, Safety & Navigational Courses

We have fished Salmon out of Kincardine since 1988 and began our Charter Service in 1998.
Your Captain has experienced British Columbia & Newfoundland Salmon Fishing! Plus, Tuna Fishing in Panama and the Dominican Republic!


Come out and enjoy your heritage of this great natural resource!

Did we mention that we simply love to fish!

Corporate Charters

Flexible hours to work around business meetings or days end activities. We can provide food and refreshments. Maximum number of people is 12. All we need to know is when and how many... we'll take care of the rest.

We will also arrange corporate or any large group "Multi-Boat Charter" for you. Just tell us of your requirements and leave the rest to us. A corporate or family "Derby Day" is a fantastic way to have some fun and enjoy a little friendly competition!

Fishing on a charter boat allows you to fish all the hot spots with no time or research invested. Your guide stays current with all the most productive lure and baiting techniques in the immediate area. This equals more fish for you and your group! Angler participation is encouraged with fish cleaning available at the end of your trip.

Picnic tables, BBQ's etc. are available at the Harbour for your use. Many enjoy a fun Derby for their clients! Remember, we aim to please so if you have any special requests just let us know!

Why Charter

Chartering is a Bargain! You can charter several times a year for a fraction of the cost of maintaining and outfitting a big water fishing boat. Fishing with a full time, experienced Captain and First Mate puts you where the fish are, in comfort and safety.

Fishing is a time honoured activity suitable for anyone. Getting out into healthy fresh air on the open water applying your skills and patience to land that big one is a memorable experience. For families - a great adventure where everyone can participate. For the boys’ - or girls’ day out - you’re going to have fun and have lots to talk about. For the experienced fisherman - you’ll learn the local tricks and get some great fresh water action. For business entertainment - you will find that this adventure gives you a great way to build and maintain relationships.

Thank you for considering Dwindle's Dream for your next fishing adventure!
