About Your Trip

Although Lake Erie is better known for its excellent Walleye and Perch fishing, the catfishing here is a true hidden gem! Captain Scott is an expert when it comes to hooking big cats here in Ohio, and he loves putting his clients on trophy fish! Captain Scott’s clients catch an average of 50 to 100 pounds of Catfish per person, without even venturing too far from the shore! These fat monsters can reach up to 30 pounds and fight hard enough to challenge even experienced anglers.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1000 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR code (like a mobile boarding pass). Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a full refund. Your safety is our top concern.

Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our location specialists are always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
