Walleye Trips
Walleye Trips

Walleye trips run from late May thru mid July. We follow the annual migration of walleye from the shallow spawning waters off Monroe and Luna Pier in Spring to the deeper waters in Ohio later in the season. Lake Erie is known a the Walleye capital of the world and the western basin of Lake Erie is your destination for great fishing. We run two five hour trips per day, so make your reservations early as prime dates fill up fast.

Mornings 5 hours or limit
Afternoons 5 hours or limit

Perch Trips
Perch Trips

Perch fishing heats up as the water in Lake Erie Cools. Large schools of these tasty fish gather to gorge themselves on emerald shiners. Lite action rods with perch rigs and minnows do a good job of putting everyone in the action. Here is where the kids have a ball and the adults become kids again. Before you know it, the cooler is full and the stories begin.

Morning trips only 6 hours or limit
