Looking for a gift of an outdoor adventure for someone in your life? Check out these unique lake Erie experiences.
We all have that special someone who can be difficult to shop for every holiday season. Finding the perfect gift for them can be challenging or they simply enjoy things you can’t buy in a retail store. Well, have you ever thought about gifting an experience instead of a traditional gift? The following article lays out two creative ways you can gift a Lake Erie walleye fishing experience for that particular person.
Give a Ohio Division of Wildlife Gift Certificates
If you are going to fish Lake Erie in Ohio (the walleye capital of the world), you are going to need a fishing license. The Ohio DOW makes it easy for you to gift someone a gift certificate, which they can then use to buy a fishing license, or any other necessary permits to fish on Lake Erie!
Wildlife Gift Certificates can be purchased through the HuntFish OH mobile app or with Ohio’s Wildlife Licensing System. These gift certificates can be purchased for any amount and are valid for one year from the date of purchase. Wildlife gift certificates can only be purchased and redeemed online making them easy and convenient to use.
Here is a list of fees associated with licenses required to fish on Lake Erie. This will help you identify what gift certificate amount might be best for you!
|License Type||Resident Cost||Non-Resident Cost|
|3-Day License||*Upgrade to 1-year license for $12||$25|
Get a Deposit on a Guided Fishing Trip as a Gift
A deposit for a guided Lake Erie fishing trip is a great holiday gift idea. A guided trip is great for small or even big groups and is the perfect way to surprise the whole family with an experience they can enjoy together. Most fishing charters on Lake Erie will allow you to put a deposit down on a trip or you could even pay in full.
