Background
Captain Paul has been fishing this lake for 30 years. A lot of his friends are captains, so he started his career working for them as a first mate. He decided to become a captain himself and got his license in 2018. Having beginners on the boat is something he loves, showing them how to fish on Lake Erie and teaching them his techniques. Introducing kids to the world of fishing has been his passion his whole life.

We expected to catch a few barely-legal sized walleye.  Instead we caught our limit and only two walleye were under 20 inches....
