2009 Message from the Captain:

To all that have made the 2008 season a great success...Thank You. We appreciate new clients and are dedicated to our returning customers. We would like to say a special "thank you" to all for your favorable recommendations, which contributed to our 2008 success. We have the Boats put away for the Winter months but will be ready for action again in the Spring. Hope you all have a safe Winter and look forward to seeing you next year. Thanks again from Capt. Ron and Myself.

Perhaps the biggest news we have for 2009 is that We are NOT Increasing Prices for the 2009 Season. Hopefully the fuel prices will stabilize and hold within reason.

Centrally Located on Lake Erie's Western Basin

Meet Captain Gary

Walleye: Mid April thru October
Still our most popular trip.

Fishing was great again in 2008 with several Limit catches for Walleye with a 2 1/2 lb average. Spring began with a bang with huge Spring fish caught on the shallow reefs. Prior to 2006, our colder than normal Winters froze the lake and delivered a bountiful walleye crop for future years. Into early 2006, the fishing was hot and heavy throughout the waters we fish and continued again thru 2007 and 2008. 

As forecasted we had "VERY GOOD" SEASON IN 2008 with several Limit catches with a 2 1/2 pound average. We expect the 2009 season to be just as good with the fish averaging closer to the 3 - 3 1/2 pound range. The 2003 hatch are still very plentiful and this season they were the big spawners to ensure our seasons to continue to be good on into the future. As has become our custom on Lake Erie, a definite Premium was placed on finding the schools more than normal because of continued low water levels. 

Bass: June thru October
* Bass trip prices do not include live bait. Virtually all our Bass trips are in Canadian waters. Call early and we'll arrange for your Canadian license to arrive in time for your charter.  Smallmouth were hot in our honey holes and as expected, even bigger hauls came in 2008.

Perch: Tips
August thru October
The Jumbos are back!
Recent years have been banner years for Perch. Positioning on the right spots was the key to production. Limits of Jumbos were common for those in the know. Limits were a bit trickier to manage in 2008 based on the time of year and location (larger bag limit from Huron and East). Therefore, it was more important than prior years to know the lake and the limits in addition to finding the right spots.
