Member since March 2021 Lakeside Marblehead, United States
Background
Capt. Butch recalls the times he spent as a child with his grandfather fishing and enjoying the whole experience. He's always had a love for fishing and for him it doesn’t matter what kind of fish is biting! Back in 2016, he took a fishing charter for the first time on the western basin on Lake Erie near Port Clinton, Ohio. This charter turned out to be one of those life-changing events. He wanted to know more about chartering and so he met several charter Captains and discussed the pros and cons of the chartering business. As they say, the rest is history! He took an intensive USCG Captains class and became a captain! He did it for a few reasons but one of the main was to share the lake experience with others. Drilling Eyes Sportfishing Charters’s had all ages aboard its vessels with different needs and wants as to what kind of experience they have wanted. The company immensely enjoys its passengers as well as learning about their lives if they are inclined to share!
Techniques
Guide Butch enjoys trolling as well as drift fishing. There's always something to fish for in the lake whether it be Walleye, Bass, or Yellow Perch, so he'll use several techniques depending on the situation.
