Dress warm, bring extra layers. You won't be walking far so having the extra layers to keep warm will only make your day more enjoyable. Waders with felt bottom or spikes to hold yourself in place on the rocks.

Be patient and time your trip. He will find the fish, and enjoy the day. The boat is excellent as well as the captain.

Make sure you have a dependable GPS to find your way, the area can be a bit confusing if you're a total stranger to it.

The salmon are running by the thousands!! Also saw some huge brown trout caught. The whole experience was just awesome and fun! And if you love the outdoors, Michigan that time of year on the river is beautiful.

I would highly recommend Port Clinton with their accessible marinas, ports, lodging and their catering to the charter business, their captains and visitors.

Don't be frugal when it comes to your equipment. Buy high quality waders and boots. Talk to your guide prior to the trip and take any and all advice he offers on preparing for your trip.

Really check the weather conditions, if you're prone to sea sickness (or even if you're not) make sure to try to schedule a trip with as little winds as possible.

Walleye are tough to catch in August and September due to the water temps. May, June, July they were limiting out.

First time fishing in Port Clinton, I would tell you to go in May or June. Later in the summer is a little weather pending. still good fishing just might not be every day.
