Mark Lorenc Charters LLC

Mark Lorenc Charters specializes in trophy fishing on 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 targeting local favorites like Steelhead, Walleye, and Brown Trout.

Enjoy your trip with Mark Lorenc Charters aboard a 22’ Skeeter boat, which comes powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. The vessel provides a comfortable fishing space for up to four guests. It is rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, which include two Humminbird depth finders, two marine radios, and GPS. Also on board are an electric trolling motor, an in-line planer 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 a long line troll with a segmented lead core and inline boards. Captain Mark specializes in rod-in-hand fishing techniques to catch trophy sport fish. When targeting Walleye, he bottom bounces with his own hand-made worm harnesses. For Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass, the captain prefers very light tackle.

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 (prefered). Please note, that smoking is not allowed on board.

If you’re ready to experience the full extent of the action available on Lake Erie, book a trip with Mark Lorenc Charters and get ready to make some memories!
