 We provide the tackle and expertise so our trips are prefect for both the beginner or experienced anglers.  Family groups are welcome and we enjoy seeing people land their biggest or first fish.  If you have any questions regarding our charter trips, please email or call.  We're eager to talk fishing and what we can do on the water.   We do offer the following:  1. For Lake Erie, we can arrange for group charters with other Captains and Boats   2.  We do Gift Certificates towards a trip for Holidays and Special Occasions.  3.  We accept major credit cards and cash. 

We focus on having fun on our trips and do encourage our visitors to get involved with the equipment and the fishing.  We welcome questions and offer tips to help folks catch fish on their own.  If you want an "educational" charter let us know when you book and we'll be sure and try to give you the info you need. 

​We are safety conscious and watch the weather- we advise clients on the conditions and move trips/cancel if conditions warrant.
