John Schaefer called a while back and wanted to take his grandson William, walleye fishing on Lake Erie. We set a couple of dates but the weather didn’t want to cooperate until last Thursday. They showed up at 8 AM on a beautiful sunny day with a brisk wind out of the southwest. William 16 and John who, claims to be 77, fooled me because I thought we were close to the same age. We bonded quickly and started to share life stories but he really hit me with a shocker. William developed non-hodgkin’s lymphoma and had been in remission for 2 years. This really hit home. My sweetie, Linda, wife of 45 years is a 22 year survivor of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. We had an instant friendship based in understanding the battle we had both witnessed.
Trying to turn to the subject at hand, fishing, we started trolling west of Lorain harbor and had only one fish in the first hour as the wind shifted out from SW to W and the waves were building. I decided to head for the east side of Lorain harbor that was somewhat protected from the wind. We were able to find calmer water and some hungry walleye. William and John limited out on their 12 walleye, plus my 3 bonus walleye, 2 giant catfish, a fish Ohio sheepshead and a bunch of throwback walleye that hadn’t reached the 15 inch legal size. We limited 2 hours early and it was a good thing because the wind switched to to the NW. When we pulled lines we were seeing 4 and 5 foot waves. It was just an awesome day with my new friends, a grandfather John making memories with his grandson William! 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!
