Member since October 2018 Oak Harbor, United States
Background
I’ve fished Lake Erie all my life. I’m currently 58, and my fondest childhood memories are of fishing Lake Erie. I enjoy seeing others having the opportunity to fish this amazing lake. I've spent all of my adult life married and raising two girls. My favorite charter trips are those that are with families and kids. I like to take the time to educate and show those who may not know how to fish. If you want hands-on fishing that’s what you’ll get aboard the Endeavor.
Techniques
Our primary focus is Walleye. We are equipped to troll or cast. Trolling spoons or crankbaits. Drifting and casting worms on worm harnesses. In the early spring April and May we vertical jig for Walleye.
