    A day on the water with Walleye Capital Charters

This past Tuesday I had the pleasure of riding along with Walleye Pro and Guide (Walleye Capital Charters), Captain Andrew Oleksiak. Capt. Andrew has been fishing Lake St. Clair, Detroit River and Lake Erie all his life, and now makes a living as a full-time professional angler. You can catch him mixing it up with the top walleye fishermen in the country on the FLW Walleye Tour, the Masters Walleye Circuit, and the Michigan Walleye Tour. This whole trip was planned and thrown together fairly quickly. We both just happened to have last minute schedule changes that allowed us to get out on Lake Erie. The day was going to be a hot one with temps in the nineties! The winds were coming from the south, and that meant a mud line would be forming out into the lake. We decided to start our day where Andrew had caught fish the day before. With a quick meet up at Jeff's Bait and Tackle off exit 15 on I-75, we grabbed drinks and signed up for the daily big walleye contest; then it was off to Sterling State Park just down the road to launch the boat. Capt Andrew and I hopped in the boat as his buddy Matt Ptaszynski backed us into the water. After a quick motor out the channel, Andrew laid the hammer down on his 250 HP Mercury Optimax. Nearly halfway to his waypoint from the day before he had to back off so that he could dodge the large debris field that was made up of everything from telephone pole sized trees down to glass bottles and other trash.

    Big Water, Big Walleye. This past Tuesday I had the
    pleasure of riding along with Walleye Pro and Guide (

    Walleye Capital Charters
    ), Captain Andrew Oleksiak. Capt.
    Andrew has been fishing Lake St. Clair, Detroit River and Lake Erie
    all his life, and now makes a living as a full-time professional
    angler. You can catch him mixing it up with the top walleye
    fishermen in the country on the FLW Walleye Tour, the Masters
    Walleye Circuit, and the Michigan Walleye Tour. This whole
    trip was planned and thrown together fairly quickly. We both
    just happened to have last minute schedule changes that allowed us
    to get out on Lake Erie. The day was going to be a hot one with
    temps in the nineties! The winds were coming from the south,
    and that meant a mud line would be forming out into the
    lake. We decided to start our day where Andrew
    had caught fish the day before. With a quick meet up
    at Jeff’s Bait and Tackle off exit 15 on I-75, we grabbed
    drinks and signed up for the daily big walleye contest;
    then it was off to Sterling State Park just down the road to
    launch the boat. Capt Andrew and I hopped in the boat as his buddy
    Matt Ptaszynski backed us into the water. After a quick motor out
    the channel, Andrew laid the hammer down on his 250 HP Mercury
    Optimax. Nearly halfway to his waypoint from the day
    before he had to back off so that he could dodge the large
    debris field that was made up of everything from telephone
    pole sized trees down to glass bottles and other trash. The
    reason for all the debris is due to all the rain we have gotten
    this year. The rivers are flushing out and the water is up 3 to 4
    feet higher than normal in all the channels and beaches, so
    everything that is on the shore line is getting washed into the
    lake. [caption id=”attachment_1289″
