trip description for Full Day Trophy Walleye and Steelhead in Cleveland

If you've been searching for the fishing trip of a lifetime, look no further. Captain Mike ("Moke") is very experienced when it comes to fishing Lake Erie for both Trophy Walleye and Steelhead. On this trip, you'll be trolling for "wallhanger" Walleye, and thrashing Steelhead off shore. 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 for Walleye towards the middle of the water column. This is an exciting (and chaotic) way to fish when multiple rods start bending at once! You'll also be trolling for Steelhead, a type of fish that's essentially a Rainbow Trout on steroids. These fish hit hard, jump high, and are extremely fun to fight. They're also excellent eating, whether you choose to throw some fillets on the grill or sear them on the stove. You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Moke's 21' Warrior High performance Muti Species boat 350-HP Suzuki engines, so you'll be absolutely flying off the dock and out to the hot fishing spots! Captain Moke will supply everything you need for a blue-ribbon day, including all rods, reels, bait and tackle! Just bring a cooler with some snacks and drinks, sunscreen, and proper clothing! Let’s go fishing! Read More
