Fish aboard Lake George's Largest Fishing Charter Boat with Captain Jason Carden.

Welcome to Hooker Charters. Jason has 12 years experience of Chartering on the Queen of American Lakes (Lake George). 

More about Jason's story: I started as a toddler who caught his first fish here, and have not stopped fishing here since. Fishing never got boring to me on Lake George because the action is so good, you constantly tell yourself "One more fish".  My story as a guide starts out as a mate, working under George Pasternak as the captain. I knew how to catch fish on Lake George, but did not know how to "Fish" Lake George. George taught me a lot then and still gives me tips on how they used to catch fish back when he was young. George sensed right away my passion for fishing this lake, and that is why he threw me out there on his boat as a guide at the age of 20. A few years later I had matured from a mate and a guide to a captain, it is then where I bought the business from him and have kept it going since.  My favorite fish to catch on Lake George is Bass. Smallmouths always fight hard, and never give up. Largemouth bass tend to hit hard but lack on the fight. When you are targeting Smallmouth and accidentally get a largemouth hit, the adrenaline always kicks in and it is a euphoria that is better than none.  

Jason says "I love the smile and emotion people get when they catch...anything. From a kids first fish, to an adults first fish. When a kid catches 20, till when and adult catches 20. When a sister beats her brother or wife beats her husband."
