Oak Harbor, Ohio is located on the stunning western shores of Lake Erie. Our Marina is a stone's throw from the spawning reefs. These glacier-formed reef structures bring over 90 percent of all walleyes in the Great Lake for spawning. The artificial rock structures also attract Smallmouth Bass and Perch for spawning. No long boat journeys from this marina. The “Walleye Capital of the World” is right on our doorstep. The Erie Drifter Captains, Captain Mark and Captain Tom, have spent over 30 years plotting, charting and logging the best fishing spots on Lake Erie. So join us for monster Walleyes, massive jumping Smallmouth Bass and Perch like you’ve never seen before.
