Capt. Matt Yablonsky of Youngstown is owner and operator of Wet Net Charters, a business he runs out of Western New York in the Great Lakes of Ontario and Erie. He also focuses on the Niagara River during certain times of the year, giving him a true year-round angling operation for customers. He’s been fishing these productive waters for nearly two decades, half of that as a licensed captain. His specialty has to be considered the Niagara Bar area, the outflow into Lake Ontario out of the mouth of the Niagara River – an area he focuses on for the lakes’ numerous derbies and tournaments. If his name sounds familiar to you, he is a regular in the winner’s circle when it comes to these fishing contests – especially the Lake Ontario Counties Trout and Salmon Derby where he has been a Grand Prize winner and has numerous first place trophies to show for his efforts. He has also been featured in several television shows such as Illinois Outdoors, as well as numerous magazine articles in publications like Great Lakes Angler, The Fisherman, Lake Ontario Outdoors and more. His insight into fish and fishing the area is helpful for anyone interested in learning more about the Great Lakes, especially as it relates to salmon and trout.
