About Lake Shore

Lake Shore Bait & Tackle and Boat Launch is located on the shores of Lake Erie's central basin inside the beautiful Lake Shore Park. It's ran by Susan Smith & Vince Allen. With it's scenic beauty, swimming beach, picnic areas and pavillions, frisbee golf and duck pond; the park is well maintained and has something for the whole family.

We have been fishing the Ashtabula area for the past ten years. We hold a OUVP U.S. Coast Guard approved Captains License, Ohio Fishing Guide License, Ohio Tackle Dealer License and a Ohio Bait Dealer License. We proudly follow all State, Federal and Local laws and regulations. Our ramp is located 1000 yards from the open waters making us "Ashtabula's Quickest Access to the Central Basin." Inside the lagoon, the park provides day docking free to the customers of Lake Shore. However, there is a 3 hour maximum limit though. Weather permitting, we fish weekly in order to stay up on the active fish. We use our customers' information and talk to other Captains as well so that we can pass that information on to you, our valued customer. We do our best to make your fishing trip successful every time!

We monitor Channel 13 on the VHF Radio. Safety is our #1 top priority. We monitor doppler radar and use the VHF radio to keep you updated on the weather conditions as well. We carry top quality tackle and fishing gear, that work in the central basin. Along with fresh live bait, we have the credentials and over 4,900 hours logged fishing the Great Lakes and will proudly use our experience to help you in anyway that we can.

We carry a variety of everything you need for your next fishing trip including drinks, snacks and ice! We accept VISA and MasterCard. We also sell fishing and hunting licenses!
