Where can I find an experienced ice fishing guide in Ohio's Lake Erie Shores & Islands? 2017 Update

January 30, 2015

Ohio's Lake Erie Shores & Islands (Port Clinton, Ohio specifically) is known as the Walleye Capital of the World. Fishing enthusiasts know that some of the best walleye catches come from a hole cut through several feet of ice on a frozen Lake Erie. But don’t go it alone. Experienced fishing guides are available to teach you the ropes and assist with on-ice safety measures.
