Strikemaster Charters - Lorain

Strikemaster Charters takes you fishing on Lake Erie to look for Walleye and Perch. These waters are well-known fisheries and boast the title of the ‘Walleye Capital of the World’. So, if you’re looking to set the next record, join Capt. Moke. He welcomes both hardcore anglers and fishermen with little experience.

Captain Moke has been fishing the waters of Lake Erie for over 40 years. His knowledge will be of great help. If someone can take you to a trophy catch, it’s Capt. Moke. He has also worked as a firefighter/paramedic veteran in the Cleveland area for 30 years. Plus, he regularly competes in fishing tournaments. In 2017, Capt. Moke won the prestigious Cabela’s National Walleye Tour Tournament on Lake Erie. You’ll be in safe hands and fish with someone who knows these waterways like the back of his hand.

You will join Capt. Moke aboard his 21’ Ranger performance fishing boat. She is powered by two 225 HP Evinrude engines and can give you a fast ride around Lake Erie. The boat was built in 2015 and features GPS, a fishfinder, an ice box, live bait well, as well as a trolling motor for an additional boost. The boat is equipped with all the safety gear required.

Fishing with Strikemaster Charters will see you pursuing some impressive Walleye and Perch. The fishing for Walleye takes place year round, with Perch in high numbers from fall until early spring.

The captain will supply all the fishing gear. He’s sponsored by Bay Rat lures, Gill Rainwear, Denali Rods, Worldwide Marine Insurance, and Domka Outdoors. Captain Moke is specialized in father-son trips and last minute trips. He also offers some discounts for veterans on half day trips.

You need an Ohio fishing license. Bring your own food and drinks. Please note that no hard liquor is allowed, but beers in cans is fine. Bring rain gear, a jacket, a camera, sunglasses, sunscreen, a cap, a cooler and ice to take your fish home, as well as motion sickness medication. Get your fishing buddy and come along!

    Join Strikemaster Charters and target Steelhead and Walleye up to 10-15 miles offshore. Steelhead are one of the strongest fighting fish in Lake Erie. These fish can jump 5-6 feet out of the water, go back down and peel drag off again. This is an awesome trip out on the water, fighting the mighty Steelhead. As the water temperatures start to drop the fish start to move closer (October) to shore and stage near the rivers. This is also a great time to catch trophy Steelhead and Walleye!

    Looking to get a nice catch of Walleye in a short amount of time, but you still have the rest of the day to do whatever you want. This is the perfect fit, a 4 hour trip on Lake Erie. This has become a fan favorite in the last couple of yrs with father and son combos.

    New to trolling or just want that edge to help put more fish in the boat? Then this is a perfect trip for "hands on", take notes and put all the pieces together about trolling. Capt. Moke will take the time to explain the "why's" of trolling. I also do this trip with Jigging the reef complex in the spring for the spunky males. This is a 2 person charter and is very relaxed so you get the most out of your trip. I get many requests for teaching charters throughout the year so I put together a learning trip.
