Captain Mike Johannes has been fishing Lake Ontario for over 30 years. Mike’s father, Don, became a charter captain in 1991 and along the way, he passed his love and devotion of fishing on to Mike. 

Mike has passed this legacy not only to his son, but to everyone who wanted to share the excitement of catching a salmon or trout on Lake Ontario.

Mike was a recipient of the The Milford “Pinky” Robinson Award, symbolic of dedication to the Great Lakes fisheries. Mike is an active member on the Niagara County Fisheries Development Board, assists with numerous fishing derbies and tournaments and is always volunteering his time to take out groups like Big Brothers, Big Sisters; the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Charity Fishing Day; and Reelin’ for a Cure cancer fundraiser. He is very active with many aspects of the fishery and is the Federation delegate for the same club the late Pinky Robinson belonged to – the Wilson Conservation Club.
