Capt. Ross Robertson has made his complete living as a full time professional angler for more than 20 years. Through the years he has worn many hats including time as a fishing guide, boat salesman, TV host, outdoor writer, product designer, tournament fisherman, speaker, radio host and podcaster to name a few.


The Bigwater team fishes ice-out to ice-up on the Great Lakes. Specifically we spend the majority of the year chasing walleye on Lake Erie’s Western and Central basins. For most of the season, we call Port Clinton, Ohio our home base. We are committed to making your trip both fun and educational. We specialize in trophy walleye, educational trips and just plain having a good time away from the daily grind. Most of our charter trips accommodate 1 to 3 guests, but we have multiple boats available for larger parties.

Our tournament winning team has been featured in outlets such as In-fisherman, Outdoor Life, Field and Stream, FLW, The Meat Eater as well as many newspaper and other national publications. All Charter Captains are Coast Guard licensed and fully insured.
