Our Midway Charter Captains

Capt. James Fetterhoff Sr. is the owner/operator of Midway Charters. He is often assisted by Capt. Nicholas (Nick) Mulpagano during busy times. Capt. Fetterhoff posts his Lake Ontario Fishing Reports on his Midway Charters Facebook page linked here for our website visitors.

Captain James W. Fetterhoff Sr. has had a love for fishing his entire life. Beginning with small streams and ponds then graduating to lakes and rivers, finally in the late 80's Jim was introduced to the finest fishery in the Northeast, bountiful Lake Ontario. Jim realized this was his dream and in 2002 went on to earn his US Coast Guard captain's license so that he could share this passion with others. From his first day on Lake Ontario he was challenged and intrigued by the Lake Ontario's ever changing water and fishing conditions. He runs tailored charters for family fun, trophy fishing or tournament fishing. Jim is the father of four wonderful children and thinks there is not much better then seeing a young angler's face when a big King Salmon starts burning line off the fishing reel. He is personable and patient with everyone onboard and appreciates the opportunity to entertain your family or group while showing you just how awesome our Lake Ontario fishing can be.

Captain Nicholas Mulpagano has been fishing Lake Ontario and its tributaries since he was a small child. Being local to the area, he's gained great knowledge and respect for our fishery. He has been fishing with Midway Charters for 10 years now and says he enjoys every day of it. In the "off" season, he also runs his own guide service, "Nautical Nick's Guide Services," on Lake Ontario and its tributaries. His great love for fishing was passed down to him from his father, who is also a guide and captain. His wonderful children also have taken in the love for the sport and they enjoy the together times it allows them. As much as Nick enjoys fishing, he really enjoys sharing all these great experiences with people just like you. Fun, knowledgeable, and family friendly all these atributes can be critical in selecting a captain to trust the safety and fishing experience for you and your family on your Lake Ontario excursion. Nick is your man for the job!
