ShakeyHeadz Lake Erie Fishing Guide

ShakeyHeadz Fishing operates from the western basin to the Ohio/Pennsylvania state line, offering anglers a great fishing experience on Lake Erie and its tributaries. Captain Shake is owner and operator and specializes in the 1-3 person outings to the most productive spots available in the lake’s rich waters.

The boat that will take you on the water will be a 21’ Ranger angler, powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine. The vessel can comfortably fit up to 3 anglers on board, with plenty of room allowing them all to fish at the same time. On board, you’ll also find a trolling motor and a livewell.

On Captain Shake’s trips, there’s no trolling involved. Bass, Walleye or Perch, you’ll always be casting. ShakeyHeadz is the premier outfitter for a specialized Lake Erie fishing experience and will provide you with an experienced few other charters fishing this lake can offer!

Fishing gear will be provided by the captain but you are welcome to bring your own rod if you’d like. What you should bring are items like snacks, drinks, lunch, and a cooler to keep the catch. You’ll also need a license valid for the day of your trip. Also, bring live bait If you’d like to use it.

You should also be aware of some of the charter’s policies. The captain passionately promotes catch and release fishing and encourages his guests to practice it. If you’re planning on bringing a kid along for the trip, it needs to be discussed with the captain beforehand.

If you’re ready to experience some serious angling action with an experienced captain, book a trip today and start counting down the days until your trip!

I am a US Coast Guard veteran and I have loved Lake Erie since I was a child. I made a promise to my late father now that I live on the lake I would finally guide. All he ever wanted to do was be the first mate! We target nearly all species in the big lake and our bass fishing is catch and release only. I trailer my 21' Ranger multi species boat to the nearest location of the best opportunities at the time of the trip in order to maximize my customers' potential of having a successful Bass fishing day!
