Safety Equipment

Make sure before coming to Lake Erie that you put safety first! Always be sure to check the weather before departing for the Ashtabula area. Next, you should always check your fishing vessel to make sure that everything is in good working order before you go out on to Lake Erie. You should always have an adequate amount of life jackets for all of your passengers onboard.

The following are must haves on your fishing vessel for safety precautions.
  • VHF radio
  • Flares
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Distress Flag
  • Two anchors with plenty of line (Note: We use a 7:1 ratio; 7 ft of line to 1 ft of water.)

We want you and your crew to have a safe and successful trip every time while fishing in Lake Erie!
