Captain Bio: USCG licensed Captain that has fished the Great Lakes since 1980. Member of Eastern Lake Erie Charter Boat Association and NACO. We use quality equipment and the latest tactics. We welcome young anglers and ladies as we enjoy putting them on big fish. Our trolling tactics on Lake Erie feature planer boards, downriggers, slide divers, lead core and copper lines. We work hard to give you a great day on the water and attend to details, including fish cleaning. All tackle supplied, and we have a large selection of stick baits, worm harnesses and spoons. On Lake Erie our primary targets are walleye, lake trout and steelhead. We like our group size at three with a maximum of four.
For Chautauqua we focus on walleye with mostly a rod in hand technique. We weed line troll with spinners, and jig primarily. If our target is musky we do troll. Our group size on Chautauqua is two and we do like to have kids on board. Weed lines are great for kids as lots of action. Chautauqua is home so we spend many hours on the water here. With protected water, we can fish Chautauqua most days. Being home we do offer split trips for those with kids or other special arrangements.
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. 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 can fish Lake Ontario by request and special arrangement. With our growth to two boats in 2017 and operation on Chautauqua, we will have limited time for Lake Ontario.
Our trips are fun and exciting for anyone -- from the die hard amateur to the first timer. We know how to put smiles on people's faces.
