Wide Open Waters Enterprises

It’s time to head west to Ohio for a brilliant day of fishing with Wide Open Waters Enterprises. Captain Ronnie is at the helm and will provide all guests with a memorable day out. He has been fishing since he was 6 years old and has fished in the PWT, RCL, and MWC fishing tournaments. If you’re after Walleye, you’ll want to fish with Capt. Ronnie.

Step on board the 21’ Nitro boat, perfect for up to 3 guests. There is seating available and plenty of space to reel in a hard fighting Walleye. You’ll mostly be trolling on these trips, which is perfect for beginners and children. This is a stable and fast boat that is great for everyone

The boat is also decked out in full safety and navigational gear, including GPS, fishfinder, and radar. Paired with Capt. Ronnies years of experience, you’ll be reeling in the fish in no time.

Children are welcome on board – the captain recommends children over the age of 10, but can accommodate younger if needed – talk to him before the trip to arrange to have younger children on board. Life vests for children over the age of 10 are provided.

Included in the price of the trip are the rods, reels, and bait. These are top quality and won’t let you down when reeling in a trophy catch.

On every trip, you’ll need to bring your own food and drink along in a small cooler. You’ll also need a cooler to take your catch home in. The captain can direct you to catch-cleaning facilities in the area.

The captain can trailer the boat to meet you at various boat ramps from Sheffield Lake to Geneva-On-The-Lake. Pick-up by car can also be arranged in advance for an additional price.

Ronnie began fishing with his father on Lake Erie when he was 6 years old. Since then, he has fallen in love with fishing for Walleye.
