Dress for the weather and take precautions if y’all get seasick. Prior to boarding. Don’t hesitate to ask questions, for most this is a learning experience. For me as a commercial fisherman I’m used to the weather and sea state conditions. I personally would recommend this boat.

It was very early in the season, and nobody had really been out enough to figure out what the fish were doing or where they were going. We also came after a miserable week of rains so the water was very dirty even a bit further out.

Definitely call Captain Mike on the Irish Eyes Sportfishing! Well worth it! Very reasonable pricing and The best time we’ve ever had on the Lake! He’s overall a good person, very knowledgeable and good with kids! If you wanna bag a bunch of Walleye, give him a call!

We were first time anglers in Lorain this trip, so it is difficult to have many recommendations. Call your captain prior to the trip so you know what to expect. Remember it's FISHING not CATCHING and enjoy the time on the water no matter how often the fish are biting. We clean our own fish and didn't know how slippery Walleye are! Once home, we ran by Home Depot and picked up a welcome mat with lots of little rubber spikes that held the fish perfectly for the rest of the cleaning. Ask questions of your captain as you go to learn as much as you can for the next time around. Have fun!

Be prepared for wind. Lake Erie is a gem for all of us in the US to enjoy. Also note as a word of advice, fish cleaning is not allowed anywhere near where we put in. Be prepared to pay for a service to clean fish in town. Just takes more time and money.

Great trip with the captain but September seems to be slow for walleye. I would book another month next time. Still fun!

The Shipyards Marina is really nice and clean, and you can grab a beer and some great food there, too! Easy to get to.

Be ready to catch walleye. There are some monster size fish in the Lake and Captain Larry’s Walleye Magnet knows exactly where they are. Get a good nights sleep and be ready to reel!

Fishing Lorain this last week of June was perfect for meeting limit on good-size walleye. We definitely will be returning this time of year.

Be certain you are fishing for correct fish at correct time of year. Walleye fishing mid-September was not so good.

Bring plenty of sun screen, a wide hat and shades, and plenty of liquid. As the action can get frantic, be prepared to respond quickly to the captain's guidance.

This time of the year the big walleye have migrated to the deeper water in and around Lorain

Use someone who knows the waters. If water is cloudy it can be hard to hook up on the fish.
