"The best fishing trip I ever had. We managed more than 50 walleyes, including a monster 11lber. The surprise 6lb smallie was an added bonus. Thanks again to Ross and the Bigwater crew."

"My wife and I had an awesome time. Even though we have our own boat, we wanted to learn more. We already ordered our own marine bean bag and Bert's trees. Gotta love the bean bag. We can't say enough about the great time. We will definitely go again"
Jeff Sayers
"If you're looking for a premier walleye fishing guide and trip look no further! Our first day on the water we boated seven walleyes over 10lbs! One of the most professional guides I have ever been with, the best part is that he teaches you along the way so you can take the skills back with you. Highly recommend getting your trip booked with Ross Robertson!"
Dan Struder
"I've fished with a number of guides and charter captains thru the years and Ross is the best I've ever fished with. Not only is he a great fisherman he is also highly entertaining! If you fish with him, I promise you won't be disappointed!"
David Bradley
"Best fishing trip I've been on. Not only did I catch a wall hanger, but had a great time with Ross and my buddy. I never felt at any point that Ross was my guide, it seemed as though we'd known each other for a long time and the trip went too fast! We caught our limits worth while other groups we came across at the cleaning stations came back with less than a 1/4 of what we caught.. we filled our freezers and we look forward to going back next year! If you are fishing Lake Erie for donkeys... this is the guy you NEED! Period."
Cole Weihe
"Ross Robertson is truly a master of his craft. He not only has command of his vessel, but an uncanny ability to put you on, and keep you on fish, no matter what the conditions were.

"I have fished with Ross every year for the past four years. Caught some of the biggest walleye in my life. The fishing experience and knowledge he provides will change the way you fish. Highly recommend his service.
Mike Moon
"We have fished with the "Walleye King" many years. He is a first class fisherman for sure. We have always gotten our limits when others are lucky to catch half as many. In my opinion Ross is the best guide on the water and has the knowledge of what it takes to catch the "Donkeys" as he calls them. The latest equipment out there and you feel like a pro. I have several of the walleye I have caught mounted but seems like every year I get a bigger one! Not a bad thing! I would highly recommend you giving him a try I don't think you will disappointed."
Donna Davis
"Ross is the guy you spend a day with that you never want to end! He knows Lake Erie and the big walleye that live there. Years and hours worth of patterning makes him a library of knowledge. One that you get to pick his brain and ask questions that can't keep you from becoming a better angler!"
Brad Gumpf
"I've been out with friends and my wife and my dad. Ross acclimates to his clients with all ending in a good time and freezers full of fun. Top notch guy with Lake Erie knowledge that most charters fall shy of.."
