SunSetter Adventures offers fun and enjoyable fishing trips to their guests that want to tangle with Lake Erie in the early spring for Lake Trout, summer for walleye, or the fall for steelhead.. Starting out of Erie, Pennsylvania, you and Captain Vince Javornick will head out to the lake’s rich fishery and have a memorable time chasing its prized species. Being a passionate angler for many decades, the captain will know how to provide you with a fishing experience you won’t soon forget!

The boat you’ll be using is a 25’ Cobia cuddy cabin that can accommodate up to 4 guests. It runs on twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, uses GPS, fishfinder, and radio navigation electronics, and is equipped with outriggers and downriggers. There’s a full head toilet you can use and you’ll also have an ice-box to store your catch. On some trips, a first mate will also join you aboard.

Apart from Lake Trout, you and Captain Vince can also target Walleye and Rainbow Trout. You’ll troll, jig, and drift fish in order to attract the fish, all using light tackle. Whether you release your catch or take it home is up to you.

All the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures you’ll need are included in the trip price. If you want to keep your catch, Captain Vince will be glad to clean it and fillet it for you. Bring some snacks and drinks as well as your fishing licenses.

SunSetter Adventures is there to provide trips of a lifetime, join in and have a wonderful time fishing!
