Treat yourself to our beautiful lake and everything it has to offer above and below the water. Chasing Dreams Sportfishing is here to make this day an unforgettable one. Most of the crew on board are family, and when you’re with us, you’re family too. We look forward to serving you! Meet Captain Ryan Raines, a life-long Erie County resident and fishing addict. He’s also a father to a princess and counts it a blessing to help you and your family and friends enjoy their time on Lake Erie. Capt. Ryan looks forward to welcoming you aboard his 20’ Skeeter, where you’ll find everything you need for a safe and exciting day on the water. Rest assured knowing that they have you covered with the fishing and navigation electronics including Lowrance and Garmin GPS units, Garmin radar and multiple VHF radios. Along with those basics, there are dozens of rods/reels and more tackle than you can count. The majority of the guests choose to target Walleye, Lake Trout, and Steelhead trolling, but this can be accommodated to suit the needs of your group. If you’re interested in early season jigging and drifting trips, let the captain know in advance. He can arrange a trip for smaller groups throughout Northwest Pennsylvania. He offers this trailered option to get you on the water wherever you are.

I've been hunting and fishing my whole life. I nearly failed my freshman year of college because of the Steelhead run. I have just expanded from taking people fishing for fun to taking people fishing as a way to help provide for my family. I personally love all kinds of fishing and you’re just as likely to find me catching walleye, bass and pike as you are lake trout and steelhead or throwing a bobber and jig for bluegill. I love the challenge of big fish but catch everything using many methods because it’s fun! As far as my walleye charters go... I’m primarily a western and central basin Lake Erie trolling operation. Watching a planer board disappear behind our spread makes my heart skip a beat, and when the fish are receptive to jigging it’s some of the most fun you can have.
