Captain JJ took us right to where the fish were. We were catching nice walleye within minutes of putting the lines out. He was all rigged up and ready to go when we arrived. The boat was very clean and he was very friendly and super professional. The water was a little choppy, but he handled the boat wonderfully and was very helpful to all of us. I was referred to him by a friend as being a great captain with a great boat and he exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking to catch fish with an experienced and understanding guy. Thanks again for a great trip.

The accommodations were excellent! It helped our group be able to be fine-tuned for the 6:00 AM departure time. Captain J. J. and Seeing Red Charters were on top of their game! He was able to take a group of mixed years of fishing experience and guide us to reach our limit! A great day! A great experience! Go get those Walleye with Seeing Red!

Captain JJ is the best!! Our group of 6 had a great time Saturday morning trolling for walleye! The boat was very clean and organized. Can’t wait to go out again with Seeing Red!

First time doing a charter and didn't know what to expect. Picked Seeing Red based off reviews and a couple other things that stood out to me. I can confirm that it was the right choice. Captain JJ was so knowledgeable and patient with us first timers. A lot of other boaters were asking him over the radio what he was doing and where to catch today. Easily caught our Walleye limit, and made great memories. Will definitely be a return customer. Thank you sir!

We had a great trip with Captain JJ, he got us our limit both days in some hot and less than perfect conditions! Everything was convenient from the booking, to the parking. Clean ship, quality gear. Lodging was comfortable, clean, conveniently located, and exactly as pictured. We're already planning next year!

I have been fishing Lake Erie for decades . Captain JJ has been the best. From start to finish . The ease of booking the trip ....lodging with a short drive to the dock . Captain JJ has a clean boat with excellent equipment. And most of all he put us on fish with a limit ! A very fun and no stress trip . We all loved it . Will be booking again soon .

Fished for 15 years in Marblehead and tried a new location with JJ and Seeing Red. JJ was arrogant and miserable when we arrived. His trailer was shabby and no propane for grill. He apparently sleeps in a 5th wheel behind his rental trailer. We knocked on his door to ask him if he had any propane and he didn't answer so we found some on our own. 30 minutes later he came to our trailer and threw us our deposit of $350.00 and told us we could stay the night but he was not taking us fishing because we bothered him at 4pm ...evendently he was sleeping. We immediately packed up and left. Got a trip booked the next day for two days and lodging at Sea Breeze in the same marina. After speaking with the other Captains in the Marina this was the second time that week that he had a meltdown and cancelled trips that were scheduled. We booked this because of the 5 star reviews.......But beware!

Captain J is the last captain I would mutiny against. A real skilled swashbuckler. Excellent maneuverability. Clean ship. Quality gear. There was no spyglass aboard so I’ll bring my own next time.

Captain JJ knows where the BIG fish are...if you don't catch any fish its your own fault! We limited out two days in a row. Special thanks to our friend Tommy who turned into The First Mate before the end of our trip 😉 Experience of a lifetime.

My brother and my three sons had an awesome day with Captain JJ and Seeing Red Charters. We were catching fish during the entire time on the water and learned a ton about trolling for fish thanks to his wealth of knowledge. Needless to say we caught our limit. All of us commented how you can see that he takes care of his boat and equipment and truly cares about his customers. I would highly recommend Seeing Red Charters for your next fishing trip.

Had a great time fishing with JJ. 2 days of walleye limits for 6 guys. Captain JJ was great to be with and has a great sense of humor. We will be going back next year and hopefully for years to come. We used lodging from Seeing Red and it was excellent. Highly recommend.

Seeing Red is one of the best fishing trips you’ll have, take a group of friends and go, you won’t regret it. We got our limit and had, not only a great time, but an awesome experience of trolling fishing that works very well, JJ knows what’s going on without a doubt. Thanks JJ.

Well maintained, large parking area, 2 bath, plenty of beds.Clean and comfortable, just like home.Charter: WOW Capt. JJ was great. Very personable, accommodating, and helpful. We were noobs, but after 10 minutes pro fisherman. Couldn’t get another pole in the water reeling all the others in! Great set up, well organized and executed. Amazing weekend dude trip!

Our group has fished with JJ several times with more in the future. All have been great experiences and have produced a TON of fish! He is always helpful if someone does not have the technique and is very patient. JJ doesn’t waste much time on marginal fishing, if you aren’t catching fish, he is moving to a better spot. Highly recommended for any Walleye or Perch trip that you want to have a great time and catch fish.

Captain JJ was amazing! Took me my father and my three kids out and we caught the limit! It was a blast and a lifelong memory that is well worth it. JJ knows the waters of Lake Erie and its fish more than anyone I've ever met and most importantly to me, he was great with my kids and was very attentive to them and they couldn't stop talking about this trip and what fun they had! We had so much fish after getting prepped and eating that night, we gave some away to family and friends. What a great time and a great captain. Thanks again JJ for the great memory!

JJ provided one of the finest freshwater fishing experiences imaginable. We limited for both days, and our average was very large!He has the knowledge and instinct that is only attained through thousands of hours of practice and experience. He has his own sophisticated methods, with a well maintained boat and equipment to put it to use. He is personable and honest, and delivers! I was also very impressed with the lodging.Thanks, JJ!

The bite was tough the weekend my group from Wisconsin was there. Before we left the dock, Cptn JJ said not to worry. He had it handled with a grin. We motor out and he shows us how his trolling setup worked with the rod rotation as fish were being caught. It wasn't long before we boated our first fish. With the tough conditions it took the full trip to get our limit, but Cptn JJ just kept working for that limit. We got it with 3 minutes to spare. My group has never trolled before, so this was a new experience. His setup was amazing. He is very patient, fun and was a pleasure to fish with. You really can't go wrong booking him. So a BIG shout out to Cptn JJ from Jack, Henry, Nick, Collin, Larry and Dan the Man. Thank You!!!!

My wife an I had a very enjoyable trip with Seeing Red Charters. Captain JJ put us on a fish all three days. We caught good numbers and high quality fish. I would highly recommend him to anyone who would like to walleye fish on Lake Erie. Also the lodging was nice and confortable.

We were on fish all day and managed to tag out with 36 keeper walleye. Capt. JJ gave us a great experience.

JJ was very knowledgeable and brought to some good spots. Tested out the area and moved on if they weren’t biting. Once we were on the walleyes it was unreal. We will definitely be back and would not use another charter. If you want fish, do not hesitate to use Seeing Red Charters! Thanks again JJ, hopefully we will see you next year.

Captain JJ knows where to find the walleye! Other boats were having little luck and our cooler was full. He was also great helping and teaching my 11 and 14 year old boys about our experience. Highly recommended! Bring water and bug spray! It gets hot!

First time experience with seeing red this past weekend was beyond expectations. Everything paid for was provided as promised. Lodging clean and ready to go for us. Cap JJ had all necessary equipment needed as the fishing "changed up" throughout our stay. Walked away with only one complaint: Not enough beer can holders holders on the boat.That I can live with! We will be back.

I cannot speak highly enough of our morning trip with Captain JJ! We had so much fun! He was a great instructor, captain, and fist mate of all rolls into one! He knew where to put the boat, what the walleyes wanted to bite on, and get us a full limit to bring home! Thank you JJ!!!! We will DEFINITELY be back!

We decided on an impromptu fishing charter after losing a baseball tournament at Cedar point..We were SO lucky that Captain JJ was available to take us out. He was great at finding the fish, helping us fish, and keeping the rods out in the water. What a hard worker! Definitely a nice way to spend our Sunday! My youngest son started getting sick towards the end, and still got back to shore and said he had a great time. Thanks for the awesome experience, we were excited to catch so many fish!

Captain JJ knew his stuff. He put us in a prime position to catch perch and we had a big day. The small mouth bass was an added bonus and pleasant surprise! The Captain has such a passion for fishing and what I believe gives him the edge over the competition. I will be booking another charter in the future!

Capt JJ is one of the best fishing guides I’ve ever fished with. I Took my son and several buddies and he put us on the fish. Great boat, equipment, and customer service. Capt JJ is a genuine nice guy that will help you get the fish and have a great time. Can’t go wrong with Seeing Red Charters- Thanks Capt. JJ
