2011 we have a new boat, a Tracker Targa, and Humminbird electronics to make your trip more enjoyable. My goal is to provide the best and safest experience possible. I am very flexible with the structure of a charter and will work with you to have the best trip possible, we can target almost any species that swims in Lake Erie. We could depart any marina from Buffalo, Angola, Dunkirk, or any harbor along the New York shoreline. I would rather have you catching fish than taking long rides to reach the fish.
BASS Bass is one of my favorites. Generally we practice catch and release when bass fishing but our regulations do allow you to harvest fish. Bass grow big in Lake Erie and fight hard, I can't promise you will land a five pounder but most likely you will hook one the rest is up to you. Rates start at $225 for 1/2 day.
WALLEYE I was raised by a walleye fisherman and it has been a long family tradition to pursue these fish. We harvest what we catch, walleye fillets are one of the best tasting fish there are. We have a great year class in 2003 many of these fish are five to six pounds, I like to harvest some of these then if you like we search for the big ten pound and larger walleye. Rates start at $225 for 1/2 day, $325 for full day.
PERCH Yellow Perch fishing is a staple on Lake Erie. If there is another fish that may be better eating than walleye it would be perch. Fishing for perch is simple and fun especially for young kids. On perch trips I can easily accomodate four people in the boat. Spring and fall can be some of the best times for catching big perch. Rates start at $225 for 1/2 day.
PHOTO-ECO TOURS The sunsets are magnificant on Lake Erie, there are seabirds, ducks, loons, eagles, and views of the shore and city you can see from no other vantage point. Up close views of the wind turbines and light houses watch and photograph sailboats racing on Lake Erie. We even have the capability to look below with an underwater camera, for views of fish that are amazing. Rates start at $50 for 4 guests and $30 for each additional hour.
WHAT TO BRING I provide all the tackle, however if you have a favorite rod that can handle the fish we are going after by all means bring it along.
Anyone 16 years or older will need a New York State fishing license. It can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Gander Mountain, Weber's Bait Shop near Sturgeon Point or Big Catch Bait and Tackle to name a few outlets. If you have purchased a NYS fishing license before you may qualify to buy online at NYS DECAL .
Dress for the weather, it is cooler on the lake. Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and rainsuit are suggestions for starters.
Bring a camera to record your catch.
Cooler for you catch, keep it in the car for your fish when you head for home. Ice is avaiable at the launch.
snacks, and drinks in a small cooler, I always carry a few bottles of water on board.
GR8 Lakes Fishing Adventures are exciting enough I do not allow illegal drugs or alcohol on board.
