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. We will also long line troll with the segmented lead core, inline boards, dipsy divers, and down riggers if that’s the way the walleyes want to bite that day. For bass and perch, I prefer very light tackle with live bait. 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. 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.

I specialize in catching trophy fish in Lake Erie. I have been fishing the eastern end of the lake for over 30 years. Right after graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering, I bought my first boat and started fishing Barcelona Harbor. I am now a U.S.C.G. Master Licensed Captain and fish Lake Erie four days a week from early April through the end of October. I am a father of two boys, who have also inherited my passion for fishing.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.
