Scheduling a Lake Erie walleye charter can be frustrating. No one knows that better then Mike who has been trying to get out since last spring. It looked like it was finally going to happen. I had him scheduled for Friday. Early in the week, I looked at the weather and waves. I said to myself, not again? I called him up last Monday and said, “Mike, it looks like the end of the week could get bad and I wanted to give you a head’s up. I have Wednesday open and it looks like the best day of the week. I am retired now I can schedule charters during the week.” He said, “Let me call you back I think that will work.” He had to check with his father and father-in-law. They both are in their 70s and look like they are who you would want by your side when your in the wrong place at the wrong time. Also, there was Mike’s son, 12 year old Nick who was on summer vacation from school.
It turned out that Wednesday was the day!! They showed up and we were under way at 7:30. It didn’t take long until the rods were bending over with a combination of monster sheepshead, huge white bass and lots and lots of walleye that filled the cooler. We had our share of under-size walleye that kept us busy the whole day. The majority of those little walleye are not quite the legal limit but will be in another month and will be 18 to 20 inches next spring. There are more walleye in Lake Erie today than ever before and the perch are starting to show up as well. Three generations of Mike’s family had a banner day and Mike’s dad sent me a photo you can see on my face-book page where he said he can’t wait until next time. I was at the Avon Lake festival yesterday, our earlier scheduled Friday, and hadn’t seen the lake that rough since Hurricane Sandy made it over to Ohio. If you live anywhere near Lake Erie you know that it was like a November gale out there with waves well over 8 feet and 30 plus mile per hour winds. Better to be lucky and blessed 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!
