As the season winds down, the fish can still be caught, but the lake can be sloppy. Rich and Ruth Williams from WV found out the hard way as the bite was slow and the Lake Erie flu set in early. Despite the illness, the William's still caught some nice fish. Thank you Rich and Ruth for enduring todays tough conditions.

Rita and Clyde McMullen from Chambersburg PA made room for walleye fishing today as part of their Erie vacation. Even though the weather was nice, the lake was a bit sloppy, and enough walleyes did find their way into to boat to have the McMullens smiling behind the fish board. It wasn't fast and furious, but it was still a job well done. Congrats and a big thank you to Rita and Clyde.

It was another fabulous day on the lake. Jerry Wells and his wife Roxanne from West Deer were treated to perfect weather, perfect lake conditions, and fantastic fishing. 12 eyes hit the ice along with a bonus steelhead, and it all happened in time to make it to breakfast. After two previous weather cancellations, it was a "well" deserved morning for the Wells. Thank you Jerry and Roxanne!

Randy Wagner from Freeport, Jaime Riili from Finleyville, and John Rainelli from Ridgeway got a taste of the good life today. Lake Erie was pleasant and the walleye cooperated nicely. It didn't take long for the three to fill the cooler. It's Labor Day weekend and the fishing is still hot. Thanks to this trio, it was another great day!

Ed Yurkovich, Ziggy Olszewski, and Jim Currie from Pittsburgh picked one of the only nice days of this week to fish. Mother Nature is being mean. But today, other than a few waterspouts to dodge, the fish cooperated for Ziggy's crew. 18 eyes and 2 steelheads hit the ice before noon. Not too bad for the last day of August. Lake Erie is still producing as the 2021 walleye season winds down. And the future is still looking great as we once again had alot of throwbacks. Thanks guys!

Return customers Rick Kennedy, Austin Kennedy, Chris Benninger. And Andrew Beilstein put together a nice board of fish this morning on RF II. When the clock struck 10, there were 24 in the box. It's late summer and the walleye bite is still phenomenal, the Kennedys are still famous, and Mr. Beilstein became known as BBB, Rod Father's Best Buddy Beilstein! It was a fun day. Thanks guys!

Steve Murdoch and his father-in-law Marty Dotson did their first ever Lake Erie walleye trip this morning. 1st timers luck was on their side. Nice lake conditions, a beautiful sunrise, and a fast walleye bite made it a great overall day. A silver fish on the board spoiled the two newbies even more. Welcome to Erie Steve! Recently moving here from Ohio was a wise choice. Thank you both for a great morning.

Lucas Dumont and his wife Kelsey from Berwick Maine enjoyed a nice day on Lake Erie today. Tomorrow, they are headed for Lake Ontario. Erie was nice enough to provide them with twelve nice walleyes to take home. Hopefully, they will get some salmon tomorrow to add to their weekend fish collection. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Dumont!

John and Sammy Baker from Southern IL put together a nice 'rack of meat' this morning on RF II. It was a perfect day for catching some big walleye, and the picture doesn't lie. The bite was early and fast. Big eyes were hungry and two jumbo white bass joined the board meetng as well. Round 2 tomorrow for John and Sam.

Today was somewhat of a grind for the walleye. Wanda Roscoe, nephew Evan Komoroski, and Margie Washnock all made the trip from Latrobe. The fish just didn't jump into the boat at will today, but they did hook up enough to fill up the cooler for these three. Evan had a blast with his aunts, even when he was reeling in sheepheads. It was another great day on the lake with sisters Wanda, Margie, and nephew Evan. Thanks ladies and Evan!

Erie's Adam Antrilli did it again. Another crew, another day, with the same result. Todays crew was Ben Eichler, Adam himself, John Shaffer, and Chris Tomzcak. Once again, for the 4th time this summer, the beer was cracked at dawn and the fish could smell it. Not sure if it was the Coronas or the lime, but the fish wanted some because it was "Antrilli Time". 24 eyes on ice in a rather short period. The Antrilli Train rolled once again. Thank you Adam for 4 wonderful days on the lake with all the different guys you brought aboard RF II. I am grateful to have you as a customer!.....Fish on!

The Doss's from Ridgeville IN picked a perfect weather day to do some walleye fishing on RF I. Gavin, Levi, and their dad Scott caught their fish, but at a much slower pace than yesterday's crew. The fish from yesterday vacated, but patience and a little searching kept the Doss's busy enough to fill their cooler with some decent fish. It was a very nice day with a very nice ending and another happy crew. Thank you Doss's!

What a difference a day makes. Yesterdays slow and disappointing bite was replaced by some very aggressive walleyes this morning on RF II. Co-workers from the company Sollco in Seward PA got together and put on a big-fish show. Josh Walker, Doug Taylor, Brian Jakosh, Rich Bendis, and Martin Knupp filled the cooler with chunky walleye by mid morn. When the show was over, the boys were sent home with 34 pounds of walleye fillets, a Rod Father personal best net weight. It was a beautiful weather day on the lake and a great day for putting fish in the boat. Thank you guys for a memorable day!

Today was a grind on RF I. Earl and James King from Jamestown PA had an early fish bite, but then it died quickly, and it was game over. We couldn't find any hungry fish. It was just a boat ride for the remainder of the morning, but the guys were more than happy with what they had. And that is all that matters. A giant perch was the highlight. Thanks to the Kings for a nice day on the lake.

Tom Estock from Erie entertained some New Yorkers today on RF II. Jacab Knabb, Emma Kinnicutt, crazy Dan Whitford, and Tom are all smiles behind their fish board, even though it was a rainy wet morning. The crew from Cuba Lake NY knew how to have fun. Hooping and hollering after every boated fish kept the spirits up, despite the fact that everyone was wet. Fun times today for everybody. Thank you Tom for the setup!

Bob Machen from Latrobe and his grandsons Keegan and Kaden had a great day together on Rod Father II. A flat lake and overcast skies had the chubby walleyes looking for food. The steady bite kept the Latrobe gang busy on the rods until the cooler was full. That is one healthy board full of fish. It doesn't get much better than that. Congrats guys and thank you for another great day.

Mike and Jennifer Burkholder from Lancaster PA had a nice tranquil day on the lake today. In addition to their limit of legal walleye, many throwback walleye were caught, a white bass, and at least 10 annoying sheephead. But we'll take annoying sheephead any day as long as the walleye are biting too. It was a great day for this couple. And it was a pleasure to have them aboard. Thanks Mike and Jenn!

Dave Nestorick and his wife Patti from Scranton PA were treated to a nice 1-3 foot wave lake with possible 4's, an occasional 5, and a guaranteed 6. Even though the weatherman sucks, Dave and Patti still bounced their way to a board full of nice walleye. It was an eventful day, to say the least. Thanks Dave for being a return customer. Enjoy that big fish fry in the fall!

Long time friend Dave Morris from Gibsonia and his girlfriend Anna Schmitt had a blast today on Rod Father I. It was a near picture perfect day and the walleye bite was steady. Some really chunky walleye were put in the cooler. The walleye board tells the story. Nice day, nice fish, and a happy couple. Thanks Dave and Anna!

Ryan James and Dan Giovanelli from the Harrisburg area enjoyed a great day on the lake today. Rod Father I ventured away from all of the boat traffic and gave these guys a nice peaceful fishing trip. We didn't have to play dodge-boat and there was still plenty of fish to be caught. It was a great experience for these two friends and another happy ending. Thanks guys!

Erie folks Dave Curtis, Joe Cavalier, and Dom Dionosio didn't know it, but they were on a sheephead charter today. It was a fisherman's paradise as the boat was overflowing with trophy sheepheads at sunrise. Then somehow, walleyes interrupted all the fun, as they started to fill the cooler. Finally, by mid morning, walleyes took control of the situation as their limit was reached. Final score, Walleyes 18 and Sheepheads 17. A shoot out indeed! Thanks guys for an eventful day!

We had three happy men when they left your boat today! Thanks for giving them an awesome experience! Planing for another awesome time next year!
Completed 29” Walleye replica @Kraus Fish Artistry (check out my page!) Message me to inquire about having a fish done for your wall!
We had an amazing time fishing with Captain Dan! A little choppy water upon arrival but ultimately the lake cooperated, smoothed out, and we caught some walleye! Yesterday was honestly a perfect day on the boat. Capt. Dan and first mate Dana are all around a class act! Very personable and by the time you get back, you've made new friends. A safe and fun trip as well as an all around learning experience. Thanks for a great day with the two boys - we will be back next year for sure!
Just an amazing day. Captain Dan showed us a fun-filled day. Catching fish early and often. We limited out in less than 2 hours. I really lucked out booking him. U know how it goes when book a trip. Captain Dan knows his boat and gear. Look no further.
