We love giving kids the opportunity to fish with their families, and friends!

The Edward John captains and crew are excellent with kids and families! This trip is 3 hours! This is shorter than our regular trips and will stay in the bay and possibly venture just out of the channel. Join other families while kids learn technical terms of the boat, climb in the wheelhouse and meet the captain, put their own bait on (if they want to), see Erie from a different view while fishing and having fun!

  • Kids ages 3-16 years of age $25.00
  • Everyone over 16 (fishing or not) $30.00
  • Anyone under 16 must have a guardian/parent/adult with them at all times
  • We welcome special needs children. Please call or text to confirm we can help accommodate your needs. Our boat is not wheelchair accessible
