Buckets Fishing Charters in Erie, PA was founded in 1996 by Captain Dan Kelly. Captain Dan started fishing in Pennsylvania with his Uncle Vic when he was old enough to hold a fishing rod. He fished various Pennsylvania hotspots like the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers as well as other local lakes and streams throughout the state. Captain Dan started fishing on Lake Erie in 1988 with his 10th grade math teacher as incentive to do better in school. That’s started it all. Since the days of being a First mate, to making it big in the charter business, Capt Dan and his crew have spent these last years building this Lake Erie charter business in Erie, PA and hope to make it a second generation and beyond operation. They thank all their repeat clients, and look forward to showing new ones why Lake Erie Pennsylvania is the freshwater fishing capital of the world…
