My name is Captain Dale Grimm – the captain and owner of Special-Eyes Charters. I’ve been fishing since a very young age, as have all of the captains that work for me on our 4 boats. We all have over 30 years of experience, fishing the Walleye Capital of the World, Lake Erie. We take a great deal of pride in showing our customers a fun, memorable, and educational day on the water. All captains are USCG-licensed and have their Ohio Guides Licenses as well. The captains are Dale Grimm (Special-Eyes 1), Ron Bradway (Special-Eyes 2), Dan Hrabak (Special-Eyes 3), and John Lesniewski Jr (Special-Eyes 4). Come enjoy the day with me or one of our other 3 captains, I’m positive you’ll have a wonderful time!
