Grandson had a vacation week and wanted to go fishing. Found Capt. Mark Rose available for bass fishing in Presque Isle Bay and took granddaughter also. Well we had a great time with the largemouths in the bay and then fished the channel and she picked up our only smallmouth and we also got some big drum. She caught the first, most and largest bass. I took largest honors on the drum. Twice we had doubles on bass.

Absolutely phenomenal trip out with Capt Polanco. We were after smallmouth bass, and caught plenty, but also quite a few drum, rock bass, largemouth and smaller species. Capt was very knowledgeable, gear was all solid and we had just a great evening out on Lake Erie. We will definitely book again!!

My buddy and I had a great two days fishing with Mark. He had us fishing many different ways and catching fish. I believe I caught my largest lake Erie smallmouth on this trip. In short, it was a very fun two days and well worth the money. I have fish with Mark the last 3 years on lake Erie and on lake Okeechobee in Florida in the winter.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I Need to Bring?

I recommend sunglasses and a hat if you wear one. Dress according to the weather conditions keeping in mind that the temperature on the water is typically cooler than when you leave your house. Bring whatever food or snacks you enjoy. I will provide water along with sunscreen.

Can I Bring My Own Tackle?

Yes, bring anything you would like. However, we provide quality tackle: spinning and baitcasting rods and reels. If you have a favor reel, bring it I can put it on a rod.

Do I Need Fishing Experience?

No, never!
Our mission is to deliver a memorable and enjoyable trip. We will take whatever time necessary to get you comfortable with the tackle and techniques we use to catch fish.

What is Expected of Me as a Client?

We ask that all clients be courteous and respectful of all local and state rules and regulations. Act civil, treat my boat, and tackle with respect. For the most part, everyone starts out as a client, but more often than not ends up becoming a friend.

What will We Use for Bait?

Charters are done with artificial lures or live bait. You do not need to choose one or the other. We are happy to split the day up with both. Or we can do one all day… it’s your choice!

Can I Book Online?

All our charters can be booked online, but if you wish to talk first happy to do that as well. The online booking is a very small minimal deposit which is refundable but saves the day for you. The balance is paid at the end of the day, with either cash or a credit card.
