Eyepopper Fishing Charters


Spanning the borders of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York, Lake Erie is the fourth-largest of the Great Lakes.  It is also home to one of the world's largest freshwater fish populations.  Based out of Lorain Harbor in Lorain, OH, Eyepopper Fishing Charters spends the fishing season making excursions out into the beautiful Central Basin of this massive lake.  Whether it's your first time out on the water or you are an experienced angler, you will be able to benefit from the wisdom of the Eyepopper's experienced crew.

The Eyepopper has been taking fishermen with all levels of experience out onto the waters of Lake Erie since 1998.  This 27-foot Sportcraft Fishmaster features a 310hp motor, GPS-Lorance 5200, Fish Finder-Color-Eagle, and AutoPilot interfaced with GPS.  It's also equipped for comfort with updated upholstery, a private restroom, and a hardtop to prepare for any weather.

The Eyepopper has an experienced crew with over a century of combined fishing experience under their belt.  The vessel is piloted by Captain Denny, who has been fishing in Lake Erie since he was a little boy.  A retired schoolteacher, he now spends most of his time leading excursions on the Eyepopper.  He is assisted by his wife Jan, First Mate Rob, and Admiral Pam - all of whom have spent much of their lives out on a boat.

Though the vessel once ploughed the waters of Lake Ontario, today it sticks to Lake Erie.  Still, there is no shortage of fish to be found.  Clients can book passage for groups of 1-6 people for up to eight hours of fishing.  All bait and equipment is supplied, and fish cleaning can be arranged for an extra charge.  Depending on the time of year when you book your excursion, you may be able to catch yellow perch, walleye, steelhead, and/or smallmouth bass.  The crew specializes in slow fishing, so you may get to experience drift, slow trolling, and vertical jigging on your particular excursion. 

The relaxed crew wants you to have a fun time on your trip aboard the Eyepopper, so they don't place too many restrictions on what you are and aren't allowed to bring.  Food and drink are permitted onboard (except for hard alcohol and glass bottles), and the operators suggest you also pack soft-soled shoes, a camera, jackets, and raingear (just in case), as well as your Ohio fishing license.

Experience unforgettable fishing on the waters of Lake Erie when you go on an excursion with this knowledgeable crew.  To find out more about the charter and book your own excursion on the Eyepopper, you can visit the company's website athttp://www.eyepopperfishingcharters.com/
