Ready to experience a thrilling adventure on the gorgeous Lake Erie?  Gone Fishing Outdoor Adventures is ready to put you on top of the hottest bite on the Great Lakes!

You’ll hit the water on board their 20’ Skeeter. It’s a mean fishing machine, perfectly suited to sliding across the Great Lakes thanks to it’s deep V hull shape. The 250 HP Yamaha V Max engine allows the boat to cruise at a max speed of 50 knots – it’ll get you to the fish in no time. You can bring two fishing buddies with you. It can comfortably hold 3 anglers plus the captain.

The onboard wireless trolling motor will help you sneak up on the spookiest fish. There’s plenty of space in the live bait tanks – you won’t run out of baitfish here.

Captain Darryl Smith will take you after monster Perch and Walleye in Lake Erie and the Detroit River. He’ll provide you with bottled water and all the tackle you may need – you’re free to bring your own if you want to. There’s a cooler on board and you can bring your own drinks and snacks. The boat is an alcohol and cigarette-free vessel.

If you’re looking for an exciting trip with a captain with over 3 decades of fishing, you’re looking for Gone Fishing Outdoor Adventures. Book a trip with Capt. Darryl today and cast off on an unforgettable fishing excursion!
