Reel Blessed Fishing Charter

Join Reel Blessed Fishing Charter and get ready for an exciting adventure with Captain Bob Semanski! You’ll spend an amazing day targeting delicious fish on Lake Eerie with a professional guide and patient teacher. Capt. Bob has been fishing these grounds since the early ‘80s, became a certified captain in the ‘90s, and has been putting smiles on customers’ faces ever since!

He invites you to join him on his 20’ Shamrock center console for an exclusive journey on one of the largest bodies of freshwater in the world! His vessel is outfitted with everything you need to reel in lots of fish and enjoy a fun day on the water. She comes with dipsy divers and planer boards, state-of-the-art navigational electronics, safety gear, and a porta potty. She accommodates up to 3 guests, including kids ages 7 and up, and everyone can fish at the same time.

Your main target species are Lake Perch and Walleye. On Perch trips, you’ll be bottom fishing using Minnows and Perch rigs, while on Walleye trips, you’ll troll with crankbaits and spoons. You’ll be provided with top-of-the-line rods and reels made by Okuma and Daiwa and live bait is included in the price as well.

Capt. Bob will clean and fillet your Walleye free of charge, but Perch has to be cleaned at the dock by fish cleaners. There’s a hook & cook restaurant about 4 miles away from the dock where you can have your fillet grilled and served properly for a savory meal.

You can purchase your fishing license at the boat before your trip and Capt. Bob will help you get set up. All you need to bring with you is a cooler for your catch, your favorite snacks and drinks, and an extra layer of clothing. Just please don’t bring any glass bottles and make sure your shoes are comfortable as well (preferably no hard-soled shoes).

Capt. Bob will provide everything you need, just arrive on time and come prepared for an awesome adventure. Get ready to create lasting memories with Reel Blessed Fishing Charter and book your trip today!
