The Banana Myth

Facts about Lake Erie and Lake Erie Fishing from

-  Having an experienced mate on board not only makes the fishing charter run smoothly, but also makes your charter a memorable one by having  everything ready for you to start your trip. Mates go above and beyond to satisfy you during you trip and is customary to tip your mate as he  works for tips only. The mate also filets your walleye, steelhead,  and/or lake trout catch and packages them for the transport home.

We supply all rods, reels, lures, tackle, and cooler for fish on vessel.

No Drugs!!!

 Notice:  Any illegal drugs on board are prohibited by federal law. Captain Andy Platko follows the "zero tolerance" program of the U.S. Coast Guard.  All illegal drugs will be reported to the proper authorities.
