Buckets Sport Fishing Charters invites you to spend a day with Captain Dan Kelly and find out why Lake Erie is so popular! Departing from Erie, Pennsylvania, you will be provided a safe and memorable fishing trip on Lake Erie out of the Port of Erie. After all, Erie is the Freshwater Fishing capital of the world!

Lake Erie fishing is excellent for Walleye, Lake Trout, Steelhead, and Yellow Perch, making this area very productive. You can either troll or bottom fish depending on the weather and the species you are targeting.

The Viking Express is a41’ Viking yacht with a 14’ beam and a capacity for six guests. Powered by twin 450 HP Detroit diesel engines, the boat is built to withstand the rigors of canyon fishing on the eastern coast of the United States.

The vessel features a fully air-conditioned salon and a private bathroom for your convenience; a Raymarine 96-mile radar, Raymarine fishfinder and GPS, and autopilot. For your safety, there is a 10-person inflatable life raft, Cisco planner system, Cannon downriggers, trolling valves, and Craig rod holders. 

Buckets Sport Fishing Charters provides rods, reels, tackle, a full complement of the latest lures, and live bait. The first mate will help bait your hooks and reel in the catch, and don’t forget, he works for tips, which are customary at 15-20% of the trip’s price.

Your catch can be processed at the end of the trip for a full experience. Make sure you obtain a Freshwater fishing license prior to the trip.
