Mark Lorenc Charters LLC

Mark Lorenc Charters specializes in trophy fishing in Lake Erie, cruising out of North Tonawanda, New York. Captain Mark is very familiar with the local waters and can trailer his boat to fish the hottest spots in the area.

Enjoy your trip with Mark Lorenc Charters aboard “Lady Di”, a 21-foot Sylvan Excursion boat, which comes powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, dual Yamaha outboards, and a 9.9 HP trolling motor with electronic throttle control. “Lady Di” has a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots and provides comfortable fishing space for up to three guests. It is rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, which include a Humminbird Helix 12 Chirp/SI depth finder, a Fish Hawk system, two marine radios, and a GPS. An I-Pilot Link electric trolling motor is fitted for a quiet ride, as well as two cannon electric downriggers for a professional fishing experience, and in-line planner board system with twin triple rod holder trees, a live bait tank, and an ice-box to keep the catch fresh.

Mark Lorenc Charters offers half and full-day trips on Eastern Lake Erie. Depending on how the fish are biting, you could go for long line troll with a segmented lead core, inline boards, downriggers, and dipsy. Captain Mark specializes in rod-in-hand fishing technique to catch trophy sport fish. When targeting Walleye, Mark bottom bounces with his own hand-made worm harnesses. For Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass, the captain prefers very light tackle.

The season begins in April and continues through October. The trips are available on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

A trip with Mark Lorenc Charters comes inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. As well as that, the captain provides the cleaning and filleting service for whatever you want to keep and take home with you. If you want, you can feel free to bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks. Please note, that smoking is not allowed on board.
