    A wonderful day on the Lake with good friends. A total of 24 Walleye were kept, filling all 4 tickets". One 9-3/4 lb Walleye. I’m already anxious for next years’ trip! But, it is said, good things come to those who wait. Screw that, go fishing!
    Lynn Edinboro, PA
  • Joe Erie, PA
    Our experience was incredible! Capt. Mike put us on fish and worked extremely hard for us. In all we had over 35 total hookups and it was easily one of the most productive charters we have taken.His knowledge and demeanor made for a great steelhead trip!

    Captain Mike and Mate Dave were awesome!! They made our rough trip worth taking and will have us coming back in the spring! They were both extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and fun to hang out with. See you in the spring Capt Mike and Dave!

    Awesome trip! Showed up with four young boys, Captain Mike and Greg couldn't have been better with them! Lots of Walleye and memories. My boys said that they went fishing with the best Captain on Lake Erie and I wont argue. Be back soon. Loco-Loco!

  • Craig West Newton, PA
    First fishing charter, would never consider fishing with anyone else. Captain Mike and first mate Greg are a class act and certainly know what they doing. Ran into some rough water and still felt completely safe with these guys. Cant wait to go again!

  • Lynn Edinboro, PA

  • Mike Thomasville, PA

  • Sherm Bellefonte, PA
    We had a blast. Was not long at all before the first fish was on. Thanks Capt Mike for a very nice fishing trip. caught several big walleye. Wont be long for us to come back for another trip.
    Sherm Bellefonte, PA
  • Marshall & Eric Allison Park, PA
    Mike, Another awesome trip, an absolute blast! I now realize there's a strategy for catching the biggest fish: you got to drop to your knees, say a prayer and pass on the little ones. Once that's out of the way, hang on tight! Lynn's strategy worked!
    Marshall & Eric Allison Park, PA
  • Lynn Edinboro, PA
    My first time on any charter. Wow. Capt Mike and his first mate Greg worked their butts off to get us into fish, and that they did! Got the biggest fish I have ever caught. Huge Lake Trout. Thanks to the "crew", including Tracy!

    And yet another great trip Captain Mike! We did pretty well, despite the rough water. If only some members of our 'team' could reel 'em in, we would have limited out! Impressive action around the mouth of Trout Run. We'll be back! Thanks a million!

    Mike is totally dedicated to providing a great fishing experience. We caught 21 walleye and 3 steelies. Mike does whatever it takes to find and hook fish. It would have been a perfect day if my wife hadn't caught the biggest fish.
    Scott | Landisville, PA

    Another great trip with Capt. Mike. Limited out on walleyes--5 over 8lbs and a few steelies mixed in. Even got to run the boat for a while! Our crew can't wait to get back out with Loco-Loco. Great all around service and great prices!

    Capt Mike was a great!. We caught fish when the other boats were giving up. In addition to Walleye, we caught 12 steelies including a few big ones. Capt Mike even educated us with the correct nautical terminology for the other, less fortunate, fishermen.
    Keith | North Hills, PA
  • Dan | Allison Park, PA
    Had a great time. The steelhead put up a nice fight. I didn't know how calm lake Erie could be, and oh yes I did catch the biggest fish on our tour! Everyone got along and most of us took our turn. Did I mention that I caught the biggest fish?
    Dan | Allison Park, PA
