Rod Knockers Sport Fishing

Join Rod Knockers Sport Fishing at the Walleye Capital of the World! Captain Bob’s Lake Erie Walleye fishing charter is dedicated to providing fishermen and their families with lifelong memories! These adventures are available year round, as long as the lake isn’t iced over.

Come aboard a 22’ Ranger boat that accommodates up to 3 guests. A huge front deck makes enough space for each angler to fish in comfort, while the cockpit handles every kind of trolling setup. This brand new model was built in 2020 and she’s powered by a 400 HP Mercury engine. You can count on a smooth and safe ride at all times.

Capt. Bob specializes in catching Walleye, which will be your main target on this full day trip. The captain will set up the equipment and you’ll use trolling and jigging. There’s no need to be an experienced angler since you already have an expert by your side. Captain Bob’s goal is to teach you how to do everything on your own.

Captain Bob supplies all fishing and safety gear. You only need an Ohio Fishing Licence, comfort items such as drinks/lunch, weather-appropriate clothing (dressing in layers is recommended), hat, sunscreen, camera, and a cooler to take your catch home in!

Join Rod Knockers Sport Fishing and let Capt. Bob show you the techniques and skills for fishing the Western and Central Basins.

Member since January 2021
I am a Licensed Master Captain with the United States Coast Guard (U.S.C.G.). Fully insured and a member of the Drug Consortium, we are a 100% drug-free fishing vessel. I grew up in the Ashland, OH area and now reside in Mansfield with my wife and daughter. I work full time as a Manager at a Railroad and spend as much free time as I can on the water. My uncle started taking me to Lake Erie at a young age and I have been hooked ever since. When I'm not on the lake with customers, I can usually be found on the lake with my family or talking about Fishing somewhere. Fishing and being a father are my true passions. Our daughter can perch fish better than the pros! I am committed to bringing the fish in the boat and having completely satisfied customers for life.
