We want you to know that your day on the water with Cast Away isn’t “just” a fishing trip, but a hands-on seminar on walleye fishing the bountiful and historic waters of Lake Erie. Our personalized approach will help teach you the presentations and tactics used for catching trophy walleye for years to come.

Techniques such as lead core trolling, in-line planer boards, and dipsie divers will be taught along with seasonal movements and patterns. At Cast Away we make every effort to provide YOU with a successful fishing trip that is educational and most of all fun.

The use of a fully-rigged, Mercury-powered 22’ Crestliner boat by Cast Away Charters provides the mobility and the spontaneity for trailering from port to port to follow the “hot bite”.

I do my best to make weather calls far enough in advance to save you a wasted drive.  Be sure to let me know if you are lodging locally or traveling in the morning of.


  • Current NY State Fishing License (see note below)

Fishing licenses can be purchased the morning of your trip at Barcelona Market (located at the Rt. 394 and Rt. 5 intersection). If you are only purchasing a 1 day license, I recommend purchasing the morning of your trip.

I highly recommend non-drowsy Dramamine.  I see many fishing days ruined from people not taking proper precautions.  Take 1 hour before we depart.  If you have issues with motion sickness, also take a dose before bed time the night before.
