Erie Eyes Angler is a Lake Erie Fishing Charter Service owned and operated by Captain Brian Schmidt.  They specialize in day and evening Lake Erie fishing charters targeting Walleye and Perch.  


Captain Brian was introduced to fishing by his father and knows these waters like the back of his hand. He is USCG licensed and insured. He is also a licensed Ohio Department of Natural Resources Lake Erie Fishing Guide.  He has decades of experience fishing the Western Basin of Lake Erie which includes the Reef Complex and the surrounding islands of West Sister, Rattlesnake, Green, North Bass, Middle Bass, South Bass, and Kelley Island.  


Your Lake Erie fishing charter will take place aboard the Erie Eyes, a 29ft Wellcraft Scarab.  This vessel is powered by twin 250HP Yamaha engines and is rigged for casting, trolling and drifting.  She also has everything needed for up to four anglers to have a safe, successful and comfortable day out on Lake Erie including a casting platform, livewell, state of the art navigation equipment, all required safety gear, and a private restroom.


Captain Brian provides all the essentials you need for your Lake Erie fishing trip including rods, reels, tackle and fresh or live bait.  You are responsible for providing a valid Ohio fishing license.  For a great Lake Erie fishing charter, Captain Brian encourages you to bring rain gear and appropriate clothing, light colored soft-soled shoes, sunscreen, and a large cooler (leave in your vehicle) for you to take your catch home.  There are cleaning and packaging services available at the dock for an additional cost. Feel free to bring a small cooler with your favorite snacks and drinks (no glass containers please) to enjoy while on your fishing trip.  And don’t forget your camera to take photos of your catch of the day.


During your Lake Erie fishing charter, Captain Brian will be using a variety of techniques to put you on the fish including light tackle, jigging, spinning, trolling and bottom or drift fishing.  Erie Eyes Angler offers 5, 7 and 8 hour Walleye or Perch trips.  They are a family friendly charter and anglers 7 years old and older are welcome aboard for a fun-filled day of Lake Erie fishing.


Let Captain Brian and Erie Eyes Angler help you create lifelong memories on your next Lake Erie fishing trip.
