You and Captain Frank Sherry can explore gorgeous Lake Erie as well as the Sandusky Bay and Portage River and search their productive waters for various prized freshwater species. Come join him and have a fishing experience you’ll surely remember for a long time!

You’ll fish from a 30’ Sportcraft commercial boat that’s powered by a 320 HP 6.2 Mercruiser engine and that can take up to 4 anglers aboard. The boat uses all the modern GPS, radio, as well as fishfinder technology for efficient movement on the water, has got a private toilet, and features an ice-box for storing your fish.

The species you’ll target include Walleye, Catfish, Yellow Perch, and Crappie. You’ll attract them by trolling, spinning, jigging, as well as bottom, drift, and ice fishing, all using both light and heavy tackle. You’re free to keep all the fish you catch as well as to release it back to the water and you can bring any kids you want on your trip.

You’re covered for all the tackle, bait, and drinks. Before you depart, you should just pack your licenses and your favorite food.

    Casting for walleye is one the most funnest ways to catch fish.You will have rod an reel in hand. So you will get to feel the bite. with smaller groups you get alot more attention from me to learn how to catch these great fish. i also use down rods to help improve the catch rate. If rod an reel in hand is the way you enjoy to fish than this trip is for you.
