About Your Guide

Profile photo of Captain Experiences guide Ryan

Captain Ryan has been fishing since he was too young to remember. As he grew up, he fished every conceivable body of water he could reach on a bicycle. As he got older, he was able to spend more and more time on Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay, and he dreamed of taking people fishing for a living one day. That dream was interrupted by a 20-year career in information technology, starting a family, and building a future. In the summer of 2019, Captain Ryan lost his mother to cancer. In the aftermath of that experience, he knew he had to make a change in his professional life. Shortly thereafter, he refocused on his passions and his second career as a charter captain was born. Today, Captain Ryan is lucky to share his love of fishing with people of all ages and skill levels.

Chasing Dreams Sportfishing Trips

Go aboard with Captain Ryan and spend a day hooking Walleye on Lake Erie! Over the course of this trip, Captain Ryan will take you to his favorite fishing holes to target Walleye, the most popular gamefish species in Ohio and a top-notch eating fish! On this trip, you'll be using a variety of lures to draw bites. Depending on the time of year, there are a several different techniques to choose from. In the spring, you'll use deep-diving crank baits to find Walleye hanging out in the lower levels of the water column. Towards the middle of the summer, you'll focus on trolling. As the season progresses, you may switch to spoons or other lures depending on what's getting the bite. Captain Ryan will make sure to get you set up with the best tackle, no matter the season! His 20' Skeeter skiff can comfortably fit up to 3 guests, plus the captain himself. She's powered by a 250-HP Yamaha engine, so you'll be able to spend less time cruising and more time fishing. In addition, the skiff is equipped with a 9.9 Yamaha kicker motor and a MinnKota Terrova electric trolling motor for amazing maneuverability in shallow water! Everything you need for an amazing trip will be provided by Captain Ryan. He’ll bring all the equipment including rods, reels, tackle, and bait. All you need is sun protection, your Ohio fishing licenses, and appropriate clothing. Check the weather reports a couple days before your trip so you come prepared! Read More
