About Friend With A Boat

marty with fish
I'm your captain, Marty St-Louis!

Fishing has been in my blood ever since I was 8 years old and growing up in Quebec. Since then, I've gone on to fish across Canada, with 11 years of experience in Lake Ontario alone. Let me tell you, I'm eager to see your face full of excitement when you will reel in one of these monsters. I want to be more than your guide; I want to be your friend (with a boat)!

pierre's expert instruction
And introducing Pierre Leblanc!

You may already have seen his skills on the French-Canadian television shows RDS (hosted by professional angler Raymond Carignan) and Canal Vie. Pierre’s priority is your safety, but the excitement of sharing memorable moments with your friends and family is close behind. He takes pride in what he does the best in life, and will take the time to teach your group all his tricks gained from over 12 years of operation on Lake Ontario.

Having worked in the Ontario government’s walleye tagging program, Pierre is our resident expert on the species, but he’s no slouch at catching others in the eastern basin too! I have always relied on Pierre Leblanc’s experience and our association make us a team that no one can duplicate. He is not just your ordinary fishing charter; he is your new Friend With A Boat!
