Although Lake Erie isn't the biggest or the deepest of the Great Lakes, it certainly has some of the best fishing, with strong native stocks of Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Perch, and more! On this trip with Captain Jim, you'll focus on catching up the Yellow Perch, a top-notch eating fish that are a blast to catch! Perch average just a couple of pounds, but they're surprisingly agile and will put up a good fight on light tackle. In addition, they often hang out in groups, so getting multiple fish on at one time isnt uncommon. You'll be chasing these pint-sized sportfish with classic light tackle fishing techniques. Perch will hit both bait and lures, so you can switch things up depending on the conditions. Captain Jim will make sure you're set up with the best tackle for the job! Captain Jim runs his trips aboard his 30' Cherokee sportfisher, a beautiful vessel that's ideal for families or groups of up to six. She's fast, with twin Chevrolet Crusader engines, and comfortable, with seating and an enclosed cabin area. She also has a nice bathroom, plus all the electronics and gear you could want! Your captain will come prepared with everything you need for an awesome trip. Just bring your fishing licenses, proper clothing, and a cooler for your keepers! Read More

If you've been searching for the Lake Erie Walleye trip of a lifetime, look no further.

In order to maximize your chances of success, Captain Jim follows the fish as they migrate around the lake. In the spring, you'll fish the western basin, then move east as the water begins to warm up. In the fall, the fish head back west and eat like crazy as they prepare for the long winter. If you're looking to catch a trophy, spring and fall are the times to do it! 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 employ diving crank baits that can find Walleye down in the deep, cold water. Towards the middle of the summer, you'll focus on trolling higher in the water column. As the season progresses, you may switch to spoons or other lures depending on what's getting the bite. Captain Jim will make sure to get you set up with the best tackle, no matter the season! Although Walleye arent known as huge fighters, they're widely regarded as some of the best freshwater eating fish out there! When you're fishing with Captain Jim, he'll make sure you head home with a cooler full of dinner. You'll be fishing out there aboard his 22' Bayliner cuddy cabin, a fast boat that's ideal for trolling, with an enclosed cabin to keep you comfortable all day. She also runs a 230-HP Volvo inboard engine so you'll be out there in the blink of an eye! You'll be provided with everything you need for a blue-ribbon fishing trip; all you need to bring is proper clothing for the weather, your Ohio fishing licenses, and a good attitude! Read More

If you've been looking for a top-tier sportfishing trip here on Lake Erie, you're in the right place! Many people don't know that the Great Lakes are home to some of the biggest, baddest freshwater sportfish in the USA, and there's no better way to hook some up than a trip with Captain Jim. On this trip, you'll explore the tributaries of Lake Erie, where big Steelhead run. You'll be chasing the fish on flyfishing gear. Steelhead are really a lake-run Rainbow Trout, but due to their diet of baitfish (rather than bugs), they get much larger and fiestier than their river-living cousins. Hunting Steelhead on fly tackle is a real thrill, and these fish provide a challenge for every level of angler! When one of these fish takes the hook, expect a big fight. With strong runs and big jumps, Steelhead are the hardest-fighting fish in the Great Lakes. Captain Jim runs his trips aboard his 22' Bayliner cuddy cabin, a beautiful vessel that's ideal for families or groups of up to four. She's fast, with a 230-HP Volvo inboard engine, and comfortable, with seating and an enclosed cabin area. She also has all the electronics and gear you could want! Your captain will come prepared with everything you need for an awesome trip. Just bring your fishing licenses, proper clothing, and a cooler for your keepers! Read More
