Lake Erie Fishing Guide - Captain Bill

Experience the excitement of Lake Erie fishing while you target trophy walleye, lake trout, yellow perch, and even smallmouth bass with top Lake Erie fishing guide, Captain Bill Crissey.


Captain Bill Crissey

For Captain Bill Lake Erie fishing is a sport that has been a part of his entire life, even since he was a young child. Bill grew up on the south shore of Lake Erie, fishing it and other lakes and rivers every chance he got which has translated into over 30 years of expertise and experience fishing these quality and very productive Lake Erie fishing grounds.

USCG certified Ohio Fishing Charter Captain

He lives a quarter mile from the Lake Erie and right up the road from the boat. Jeff is also a member or the North Coast Charter Boat association and the Lake County Visitors Bureau.

Captain Bill is licensed by the United States Coast Guard and holds an Ohio fishing charter license and is fully insured.

As we mentioned Captain Bill has over 30 years of Lake Erie fishing knowledge and experience that he can pull from on every Lake Erie fishing charter he runs. His vast fishing knowledge is one of the reasons he always finds the fish and is such a successful Ohio charter boat Captain. He is experienced in all types of Lake Erie fishing and knows the southern region of this lake like the back of his hand. After all he grew up on Lake Erie's south shore and even today lives just a stones throw from the waters edge and can just about walk to his boat.

Lake Erie Fishing for Kids

A large school of walleye is one thing that puts Captain Bill in a really good mood but there is also something esle that makes Jeff very happy while out on the water. Seeing his customers hooked up to a nice fish makes Captain Bill's day, especially when he sees the young kids taking so much delight in fishing. After all everytime a kid becomes hooked on fishing the odds go up that the same kid won't be tempted by the things of the world that are bad for them.

That's right, Captain Bill gets just as much satisfaction these days out of watching his customers catch fish, especially the beginners or the kids. There is nothing like seeing a little one have a giant smile on his or her face as they land a fish that is sometimes bigger than what the "Grown-Ups" have caught.

Captain Bill is also a proud sponsor of the PAL program every year. The police athletics league of Ohio brings 100's of children to our river to fish every year. Last year we took out 27 boats from our river fishing with a cook out and games afterwards. This year we are hoping for 30 or more captains to get involved. This is a perch fishing event in august and anyone wanting to make donations should contact the Ohio police athletic league.

Whether you're a beginner or an accomplished angler, Bill will make the experience a memorable one. Lake Erie fishing charters with Captain Bill are hard to beat when your fishing these productive waters of the central basin.
