Lake Erie is known as one of the finest lakes to fish on in the world. SunSetter Adventures has extensive experience in fishing these abundant waters, and is ready to share their hottest fishing spots with you!

Climb aboard their 38’ Bayliner, that can hold up 6 anglers simultaneously. She’s powered by twin MerCruiser engines, each having an impressive 250 HP. That power allows her to reach a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots, so you know you will get to your fishing spot in no time. A full electronics suite is available on board, finding fish is easy. Outriggers and a flybridge are also present, allowing you to have the best chance at netting that dream catch. She’s also equipped with a full-head toilet, for added comfort.

Captain Vince Javornick is a veteran of these waters, ready and willing to share with you his tips and tricks for catching the local fish. He’ll help you catch Lake Trout, Perch, Walleye, and other species. The main techniques used will be trolling, bottom fishing, drift fishing, and jigging with light tackle.

Children are encouraged to join in on SunSetter Adventures, however, the captain recommends the minimum age of 5. Beer is allowed but Captain Vince doesn’t allow hard liquor (or bottles), and customers are advised not to show up under the influence. A PA fishing license is required, with a Lake Erie stamp; it can be purchased online. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome, and the charter operator will instruct or assist you according to your knowledge.
