It was a rough lake as 85 boats launched out of Lorain and Vermillion to find their fishing spot. My team, each year, consists of myself and my two sons, Jason and Ryan. Unlike the fishing charter where I am captain and one of them is my first mate, my son Ryan is captain and Jason and I are the mates. Ryan spends a lot of time researching, and pre-fishing at the end of his work day to try to find the biggest fish and to put our program together. After 3 finishes in in the top 5 spots 3 years in a row, he really does his homework. Last year we placed 1st and missed it by a half of inch this year. Our 5 fish totaled 146 & 1/4 “. It’s just an awesome day to be out with my sons and finish every year in a respectable place. Gary Pongracz has put this memorial tournament together for many years in honor of his father who passed away and all fallen soldiers. The first time we were in this tournament we took 1st place with the only child in the tournament. It was myself, son Ryan and grandson Kaya who was 8 at the time and now going on 17 and spends all of his time getting ready for football in the weight room. Ryan will be in several tournaments this year as I will be doing fishing charters. Once my season is over, I will join him in the GOTL cold water tournament in Cleveland where we finished in 2nd place last fall and will be fishing in the fall brawl. It’s just the start to the 2019 season despite the cold and rain during the first couple of weeks in May. 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!
