Showdown Fishing welcomes you to Monroe, Michigan. Spend a day fishing Lake Erie and enjoy the wonderful scenery of the area as well as its varied marine life. Captain Earl Brink is a veteran angler who knows how to put you on the fish and make your trip as enjoyable as possible. With his assistance, you’ll experience the beauties of fishing on Lake Erie to the fullest. Join him and embark on your next fishing adventure!

You’ll be using a 20’ Alumacraft aluminum fishing boat on your trip. It can sit up to 2 anglers, runs on a 250 HP Yamaha engine, and has got all the modern GPS, fishfinder, as well as radio technology needed for safe and efficient movement on the water. The boat is equipped with outriggers, planner boards, and a livewell.

You and Captain Earl will be trolling and jigging Lake Erie for Walleye, the lake’s renowned inhabitant famous both for its food quality and the fight it puts up when being chased. You’re free to keep the fish you catch but release it also possible. Kids can also join aboard, so bring them as well and have a lovely family outing in this beautiful area.

Captain Earl will supply you with all the rods, reels, tackle, as well as lures, so there’s nothing you should bring for the trip except fishing licenses and your favorite food and drinks.

Pay a visit to Showdown Fishing and have a terrific fishing time on Lake Erie!
