Dave brought his son out for a perch fishing trip on Lake Erie. They had returned for a second charter with me. We started out of the harbor and the lake was very flat with no wind. Perch fishing has been spotty in Lorain so we anchored over one of my favorite perch GPS icons. We were marking fish all over the bottom and they looked just like the marks in the spring and fall when the perch school up as the waters cool. We caught a few gobies which are an invasive species brought in from the big ships who empty their ballast when entering the lake through the locks. These little critters resemble a huge tadpole. They love to clean the bait off the hook before the perch get a chance. Then a nice 22″ walleye hit the perch rig and Dylan reeled it in as his dad netted and landed him for the cooler. We thought we might have something going. Well, after quite a while of no perch, no more walleye and the lake getting flatter, I knew from the recent reports this could turn out to be one of those bleak days.
I asked Dave if he would like to change over for walleye and he said “Sure, I just wanted my son to catch fish.” I brought the rods out and moved the boat over where I had been catching walleye for the past 2 weeks. As soon as we started trolling, it was on. Non-stop fishing and we finished up with 9 walleye keepers, a bunch of throwbacks and 10 huge white bass. They both had a great time and said they would make this an annual event. Better to be lucky than good!

Captain Moses and Noah’s Ark is the best walleye and perch charter boat on Erie. Very professional and knows the lake better than the back of his hand. Reasonable prices and great teacher of novice anglers and seasoned fishing vets alike.

My 86 y.o dad and my son have had wonderful and memorable fishing trips with Captain Yonkers and his first mate (son) each year. We look forward to it and it has become an annual tradition as part of our Fourth of July Liu Family Reunion. Moreover we catch the big walleyes!

Both times my husband, friends and I went fishing with Captain Moses, we limited out! I would characterize both outings as highlights of our summer. Captain Moses knows all the hot spots, and is so friendly and accommodating. He genuinely wants everyone to have a fabulous time and that really comes across. A Noah’s Ark charter is a fabulous way to spend a beautiful summer day on Lake Erie.

If you want a “fishing trip” there are a lot of Charter outfits to choose from. If you want a “fishing experience” go with Captain Moses at Noah’s Ark Charters. You will not only catch fish on a first rate boat with the best captain on the lake but you will walk away with a new friend.

Capt. Moses is the best on Lake Erie! We have booked a number of trips and caught a ton of fish every time. Even when conditions were not ideal Capt. Moses works really hard to make sure you catch fish and have a great time! I would recommend Noah’s Ark Charters to anyone looking to catch fish.

You are the greatest captain of the high seas. You make my mom’s annual fishing trip the most enjoyable experience due to the death of my dad and having to give up the family fishing boat.

The nicest Captain on Lake Erie. No one better at finding the perch. Years of success fishing the waters of Lorain, Ohio for perch and walleye. Beautiful boat, always feel comfortable and safe when aboard. Captain Moses makes everyone feel like a part of his family. Wonderful location in a beautiful harbor with quick access to Lake Erie.

Fishing on Noah’s Ark is so much more than fishing, it’s an experience. Captain Moses is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced captain’s on Lake Erie. His number one priority is everyone’s safety and that everyone has the best possible time they can have. He cares deeply about everyone who goes on his boat. If you catch 1 fish or 50 fish, one thing is for sure – you are going to have a blast. If you want an experience that is top notch from start to finish – Noah’s Ark is your boat and Captain Moses is your guy.

I’ve had the pleasure of being on a number of fishing charters using Noah’s Ark Charters. If you are looking for a Great fishing experience I’d strongly recommend Captain Moses and his Charter Services. He has a passion for fishing and is extremely knowledgeable. Nobody can guarantee limiting out or a good fishing day but Captain Moses increases your chances greatly. When others strike out he seems to have a productive day. For me, Noah’s Ark Charters is the best choice out there!
