"My charter business is, and always will be dedicated to providing a safe and memorable experience on the waters of Lake Erie. Myself and my mate have both fished Lake Erie for many years. With all the latest and up-to-date tackle, along with old and new tactics, we have proven our abilities to find and catch fish".

Captain Bert specializes in Walleye, Steelhead, and Perch fishing in the Central Basin of Lake Erie. We provide all the rods, reels, tackle, bait, and ice for the fish on board. Your catch will be cleaned or left whole, your choice-- for no additional cost. (Walleye and Steelhead only, Perch is an additional cost)

"There is no experience needed. Myself and mate will teach both experienced and beginning anglers on how to handle reels, rods and lures; while sharing my successful tips and tricks along the way. I enjoy nothing more than watching our customers experience the hit of a trophy Walleye."

Come enjoy a memory of a lifetime with
Captain Bert Campbell, Owner & Operator of Reel Obsession Fishing Charters.  

full time mate, Paul Petruso


We welcomed Paul aboard Reel Obsession in the spring of 2022. 

Paul is a lifelong resident of Erie Pennsylvania, and has fished Lake Erie his entire life. He came aboard with the knowledge and capability of running a full, 16-rod spread with little to no guidance. His lifelong background of Fishing Lake Erie has proven his ability to target any given species that Lake Erie has to offer.


Paul has fished many local tournaments over the years, bringing home several top three finishes, along with his share of first place finishes. 


In his spare time, he enjoys taking his own boat offshore to target steelhead-- one of his favorite Lake Erie species to catch. Paul’s knowledge of finding and catching these awesome fighting fish is a huge benefit to myself and all our customers. 


In the spring and fall, you can often find him making the trip to Lake Ontario to target King Salmon. Paul's knowledge and ability to run the back of the boat and target any given species has proven to fill the coolers day after day, and has helped make Reel Obsession one of the top charters out of Erie Pennsylvania.
