Strikemaster Charters - Cleveland

Welcome to Strikemaster Charters, one of the best charters of “The Walleye Capital of the World.” Capt. Moke has been fishing Lake Erie for almost 45 years now and knows what it takes to get you on the big fish. He’s also a firefighter and paramedic when he is not guiding and offers a personalized charter service that will fit your needs.

You will be in a 21 foot long 2015 performance fishing Ranger 620 FS that has state of the art fishfinders and navigational equipment. It comes powered by a 250 HP Evinrude G2 motor and can cater to up to three anglers fishing at the same time without bumping elbows. And if this isn’t enough power for you, the vessel also has a 10 HP Evinrude kicker motor. Downriggers on board will expand your reach and you’ll also have ice-boxes and a live bait tank at your disposal.

The captain will take you fishing for trophy Walleye and Perch in the most productive lake spots. He knows everything there is about jigging and trolling and he’s happy to share this vast knowledge with you!

Capt. Moke will provide you with top-notch fishing gear, live bait, and lures. He can also pick you up on the way to the boat, just let him know in advance where you’re located. If you’re coming in your own car, free parking will be available near the boat.

Strikemaster Charters is very child-friendly so bring your little ones on a fishing trip they’ll cherish for many years.

    Strikemaster Chartes will be targeting Steelhead and Walleye 10-15 Miles off shore on Lake Erie. Steelhead are one of the strongest fish in Lake Erie. These fish can jump 5-6 feet in the air, go back down and peel drag again. This is an awesome day on the water. As the water temperature drops, the fish start to move closer to shore and stage near the river mouths. This is also a great time to hook a trophy Steelhead or Walleye.

You should bring rain gear, a jacket, a camera, sunglasses, sunscreen, a cap, a cooler and ice to take your fish home, as well as motion sickness medication.

    New to trolling or just want that edge to help put more fish in the boat? Then this is a perfect trip for "hands on", take notes and put all the pieces together about trolling. Capt. Moke will take the time to explain the "why's" of trolling. I also do this trip with Jigging the reef complex in the spring for the spunky males. This is a 2 person charter and is very relaxed so you get the most out of your trip. I get many requests for teaching charters throughout the year so I put together a learning trip.
