Eriegardless Sportfishing

Eriegardless Sportfishing specializes in trolling for Walleye and anchoring for Yellow Perch. Launching out of Lakeside Marblehead, this husband-and-wife team will take you exploring the Western Basin of Lake Erie, where you will be able to sample Walleye and Yellow Perch.

You will spend your day aboard a 28’ Carolina Classic, powered by a twin Crusader inboard engines. She is a seaworthy vessel with plenty of space for up to 4 anglers. The boat features a full private head and a hardtop to provide a comfortable and safe trip. She is outfitted with the latest navigational and fishfinding electronics, such as a Garmin 8212 and 7608 graphs, a Raytheon radar, a Garmin autopilot, and 2 VHF ship-to-shore radios.

With Eriegardless Sportfishing, you will be able to try your hand at trolling and jigging, targeting the best species that Lake Erie has to offer. Trips range from 6 to 10 hours to meet any angler’s schedule and fishing needs. All tackle and gear are easy to handle for both kids and adults. The crew works with 18 line counter setups that have been calibrated and uses Dipsy divers, Michigan Stinger and Yeck spoons, and TruTrip divers. Crankbaits are Bandits, Reef Runners, Yozuri, and Bay Rats.

Everything needed for a productive day will be provided beside any drinks and snacks that you prefer (please, don’t bring hard liquor or glass bottled). You will also need to bring a valid Ohio fishing license and get in touch with your captain to check if you’ll be fishing the Canadian waters.
