John Forbes

Captain John Forbes Captain John Forbes, a life-long resident of Dunkirk, NY, has over 28 years of Great Lakes trolling experience. It doesn’t matter if he is on the lake looking for that first walleye of the season, fishing with his long time tournament partners, running summer charters for walleye on Lake Erie or spring charters on Lake Ontario, Captain John loves fishing and sharing it with others. Captain John , a licensed United States Coast Guard Captain, started Times Two Charters in 2004, and has thoroughly enjoyed the groups that have joined him for the day. The goal at the beginning was simple, work hard for your clients, treat them like you would want to be treated, and of course, catch a few fish! The number of returning clients each year is a testament that this approach has worked! His philosophy is “we are fishing with you, not for you”.

An avid angler, Captain John still finds time to fish for fun too, whether for northern pike in Ontario, striped bass in Virginia, redfish in South Carolina, or simply chasing steelhead on the local tributaries, often with his son! He is fortunate to have a great wife, Lisa, who has recognized his need to stay on the water!

High quality equipment is important when fishing, and Captain John is proud to be on the Pro-staff for Bay Rat Lures, Gamma Fishing Lines, and Dreamweaver Lures!
