Enjoy Lake Erie fishing at its best!
Trophy charter fishing for:
- Lake Trout
Your fishing charter can leave from either:
- Cattaraugus Creek
- Sturgeon Point
I have been fishing the eastern end of Lake Erie for over 30 years. I started fishing Lake Erie just after I graduated with my mechanical engineering degree, bought my fist boat and started fishing Barcelona Harbor. Now I have US Coast Guard Master License, fishing Lake Erie four days a week from early April through the end of October. I have two grown boys of my own and have shown/taught them everything I know about fishing Lake Erie, just as I would you when you charter with me.
I also sail in a competitive league out Buffalo harbor every Wednesday night from mid-May through mid-September. For fun, I am a volunteer fireman.
Fishing Techniques used on your charter:
Rod in hand fishing techniques is always my first choice to catch trophy sport fish. This is most exciting and challenging way to catch game fish. For walleyes, this usually means bottom bouncing with my own hand made worm harnesses. For bass and perch, I prefer very light tackle and drop shotting to catch trophies. We will also long line troll with segmented lead core, inline boards, dipsy, and down riggers if that’s the way the trophies want to bite that day.
I trailer my boat so that we can be catching the most active trophy gamefish as they move seasonally on the eastern end of Lake Erie. Trophy gamefish move with the baitfish, the baitfish move because of the winds and the changing water temperatures in the lake. I change ports as required to keep over these fish. But we can fish out of any of the ports on the eastern end of Lake Erie and catch trophy fish.
