An evening on Lake Erie

An evening on Lake Erie

Bryce’s first time on a boat MARBLEHEAD, OH – As part of a family mini vacation to the familiar stomping grounds around Ohio’s central coastline, I thought I would take the opportunity to try Bryce’s ‘sea legs’ out.  As much fishing as Bryce and I have done together, it’s never been from a boat.  The … Continue reading

Urban kayak fishing, Cleveland style

Catching fish in Lake Erie, by First Energy Stadium CLEVELAND, OH – I can never find enough time to fish, but when I do get the opportunity, I have tried to get out on the kayak.  A couple trips out have not yielded anything of significance, but I am always happy to get a workout while … Continue reading
