Welcome aboard Gills For Thrills!

Voted 2024 Top Lake Erie Fishing Guide by ReelReports.com 

My name is Captain Eric Dobrowski and I am a professional and fully-licensed fishing charter captain and my service is based out of World-Famous Lake Erie, home to the premier freshwater fishing in the World!

I specialize in the pursuit of Walleye and Steelhead – the Superstars of Lake Erie. I also offer fishing trips in pursuit of Smallmouth Bass, Perch and Trout, just to name a few. You will benefit from my more than twenty years’ experience targeting the most-prized species that Lake Erie can offer.

I can customize a trip that caters to everyone’s talent level from a child seeking his or her first Walleye on spinning tackle to the veteran angler chasing a record Steelhead or Walleye on an artificial…and everything in between.

Regardless of the Lake Erie species that you seek, Gills For Thrills can make it happen. I am committed to providing unmatched service along with a day on the water that will never be forgotten. Please take a moment to take a look at our photos and fishing reports.

Join Gills For Thrills for the Great Lakes angling experience of a lifetime.

    Took my family walleye fishing with Captain Eric and had an wonderful time.  The fish were biting and the captain did a great job helping us stay on the fish the entire trip. I highly recommend his guide service if you are looking to hook into some nice walleye and have a great time on the water!

    I book Captain Eric every year.  I won’t even consider another guide on Lake Erie.  Eric is professional and very knowledgeable. Call it luck, but time and time again we produce.  It’s amazing to watch Captain Eric professionally clean our fish! It’s like watching a sushi chef! I look forward to my annual summer fishing trip with Captain Eric again!

    Found Gills For Thrills through a friend on Facebook. I saw the pictures of a limit on walleye and knew I had to give it a shot.  I live pretty close to Erie PA, but rarely get time to fish, so I figured it was better I hire a pro rather than try myself.  I was right! Fishing with Captain Eric was a blast and we had a great day of catching.
