The Banana Myth.

Here's some information about 14 Tips for a Great Lake Erie Fishing Trip furnished by P.F.B.C.



- Having an experienced mate on board not only makes the 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.

(If you want to bring your own equipment you can)
