Resting on the banks of North Ohio, Lake Erie is a superb fishing ground and the best spot in the world for fishing Walleye. To help you do this is Erie Outlaw Fishing, who’ll take you out onto the waters in search of them. These guys specialize in small, intimate trips of up to 3 people but a fourth person can be squeezed in.

You’ll fish aboard a 19’ Crestline dual console. Although it’s a small craft it certainly packs a punch with its 200 HP Mercury engine, able to take you up to 45 knots. It features a wireless trolling motor to avoid obstructions when you’re going for the Walleye. There’s also a cooler with ice to keep the catch cold, as well as a foldable camp-style porta-potty.

Walleye is a personal favorite catch for many fishermen as it’s so fun to catch. Trolling and drift fishing are the main methods, which are both plenty of fun and they give you the chance to learn a new casting skill.

Walleye tastes great, so your catch can be sent to cleaners upon request at the onshore cleaning station at the end of your trip. If you are staying on the Islands, there are no fish cleaners there, so you will need to clean it yourself or bring them across on the ferry to a cleaner. Walleye also loves to chase after live bait, which will be purchased before your trip begins.

You’ll need to take a raincoat, food, and drinks with you (no glass or hard liquor). As well as this you’ll need to book a fishing license, which can be done online, before your trip. Once you’ve booked the license and the trip you can look forward to a memorable day of wrestling with Walleye. Anyone needing an Island pickup, please contact before booking because of scheduling conflicts. A fee does apply for this also.

    If you're taking kids or a beginner, then this trip is a great option. It's also a great option if you're a keen angler but you're not used to catching Walleye. This involves drift fishing which is fairly unique to Walleye so a bit of practice may be necessary before you get into the flow of it. These trips are limit or four hours, whichever comes first, and all legal fish will be kept.

    With a couple of extra hours put on the lake, you're upping your chances of coming back to the shore with a great haul. You're sure to not get bored during this extra time either as if you hook onto a big Walleye then they're sure to put up a good fight to not join you aboard. When you come back to the shore with your full bags you can get your Walleye cleaned at the cleaning station and drive home looking forward to a delicious meal. Fishing up to the limit or 6 hours, whichever comes first.

    This trip is for the serious fisherman or group that wants to catch big fish or do multi-species. On this trip, we can go for walleye and steelhead or bass if you wanted. This is also if you want to be selective in what you want to keep.

I started walleye fishing with my grandparents when I was 4 years old. I became hooked instantly and have been obsessed with Walleye fishing ever since. I got my first boat when I was 16 and kept on fishing since that day. I've been fishing for Walleye on Lake Erie for over 30 years now and the excitement of taking people new to the sport out onto the lake never gets old.
