Perch fishing in Lake Erie from Presque Isle Bay, Erie, Pennsylvania!

Captain John Nekoloff is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard and holds a 100-ton Masters Captain license. His Coast Guard career was spent focusing on vessel and passenger safety and providing customer service to the fishing communities on both the East and West coasts, and on the Great Lakes, so he knows what the customer expects from the captain and crew of a head boat.

Captain John and his family have a love of fishing and recently have had the opportunity to turn their passion for fishing into a family business.

With his wife Sonja and their three sons, JP, Justin and Sean, Captain John, along with the other captains and crew promise to make your day of fishing a memorable occasion.

So come and join us aboard the Edward John. It's affordable fun for the whole family!
