Walleye Center

Go fishing with Captain Nick Homayed of Walleye Center charters and discover the riches of Lake Erie! Your guide has years of angling experience in the area and he knows all the productive spots where fish come out to play.

Join him on his 23’ Panga that can accommodate up to 6 people and has a 100 HP Mercury engine that will take you to your catch in no time. You can try out different techniques, but trolling is usually the most successful way to get the attention of always-hungry fish.

The boat sports reliable navigational electronics, a live bait well, and a wireless trolling motor, for when you need to stay quiet and sneak up to the fish. Capt. Nick will provide rods, reels, and tackle, as well as lures and live bait, so that you can show up for your trip carefree.

The species that takes center stage in Lake Erie is Walleye. The lake is known as the “Walleye Capital of the World” and the best time to go after these hard-fighting and delicious fish is from June to late September. Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch are also on the menu.

You’re welcome to come with your family and kids, Capt. Nick loves having little ones on the boat, just remember to bring life jackets for very young children. You should also show up with a fishing license, drinks, and some food to avoid reeling in your catch on an empty stomach.

Hit the water with Walleye Center, explore Lake Erie, and who knows, maybe hook your biggest Walleye yet!
