I do get lots of calls for charters with children. Being a grandfather of 11 and the 12th on the way, I have a lot of experience with children and their attention span. I realize all of them are different but you should be aware of what your child’s attention span is before you invest in a day of fishing on Lake Erie. I took my grandson, Ryder, out when he was 6 and it was just the two of us. I set the anchor and the perch started to hit right away which is not always the case. We caught 15 nice perch in the first 20 minutes and Ryder looked up at me and said “Ok Momo, I’m ready.” I said, “What are you ready for little buddy? ” He replied, “I’m ready for McDonalds and the swimming pool.”
Now, it’s time to decide do you make them stay out and end up hating it or do you take them in. There are times when he will want to stay out, like the day he caught his 10 lb. walleye, which now hangs on his bedroom wall.
People get upset when I tell them I have a no younger than 8 year old limit. Your paying for a day on the lake or limit whichever comes first and when that little guy or gal has had enough you have to decide what to do. There are NO discounts for short trips. There are also many things on a boat that a child can get into when they start loosing patience, such as hooks, tools and sharp objects. This is an FYI only. Think about this before you call. I require 1 adult per person. I take 4 max so that is 2 adults and 2 kids between the ages of 8 and 12. I hope you understand but safety is first with me, a great time is second and getting your fish is 3rd!

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!
