Captain
John Seiler

Member since May 2018 Oak Harbor, United States
Background
I grew up on Lake Erie fishing with my grandparents as a kid. We used to fish from a 25' Sportcraft built in 1988. Throughout the years, my passion for hunting started to diminish and now I eat, sleep and breath fishing. I have over 10 years of experience fishing the Lake Erie and have been guiding fishing trips for five years professionally. I am very patient and love teaching my customers. Ensuring a fun and a productive day on the water is my main goal as a captain.
Techniques
I love casting, retrieving crawler harness, feeling the strike of Walleye, and setting the hook. Same can be said for vertical jigging them in the early spring when they are close to the shore spawning. I also like to troll but would rather cast. Trolling is great if there are smaller kids on board and it's the most effective way to fill a cooler full of fish on Erie.
