A day on the water with Walleye Capital Charters

[caption id="attachment_1288" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Running across Brest Bay"][/caption] 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.

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″
