USCG Licensed Captain & Owner
Capt. Brandon began fishing Lake Erie in 2012 on a self-taught adventure. He had the great fortune to learn and fish with many great Captains over the last decade, learning more from them than he ever imagined. He purchased his first true fishing-style boat in 2016 and has been on the lake as much as life would allow ever since.
Capt. Brandon hails from Grafton, West Virginia; and he's a passionate Mountaineer fan. In 2002, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps at 18 years old, and served 8 years on active duty in the United States Marine Corps infantry. He completed 3 combat deployments during his active service.
In 2010 he moved back to Northwest Ohio and began to pursue a career in the Fire Service. He was hired by Bowling Green Fire Division as a Firefighter/Paramedic in 2012. He is also a Captain for Woodville Township Fire Department.
Capt. Brandon has been married to Michele since 2008. She is truly the hero behind the scenes supporting this adventure. He has three sons: Connor, Cayle, and Cayden. Outside of the fire service and fishing, he's an avid hunter, enjoys scuba diving and loves coaching youth football and wrestling with his sons.

2005 Pursuit 2870 Walkaround
Pursuit boats are in a class of their own, offering space, comfort, safety, and power that is a rare combination for any similar sized vessel. This model features a spacious fishing deck, a cabin underneath with storage as well as a full head for those on the water emergencies, a hard top to protect from the elements, and many other features popular to Lake Erie Fishing.
She is powered by twin Yamaha 225 outboard engines. Electronics include 2 Garmin Fishfinder/Chartplotter head units, Garmin Reactor 40 w/ V2 Smartpump Autopilot, Garmin Radar, VHF Radio, an in-hull and a transom mount transducer, and a power windlass (anchor).
This boat was purchased in May of 2022, and has been a major upgrade to the services provided. Cisco Planar reels, Big Jon Rod Holders, and many other add-ons make her a dangerous fishing vessel to all Lake Erie Walleye. Rod holders are easily removable to transform for Perch fishing as well.
Fully Involved Sportfishing
Get Fully Involved in your next fishing adventure!
Fully Involved Sportfishing became a reality as I've enjoyed sharing my fishing passion as well as time on Lake Erie with others. With Fully Involved, I not only want my clients to enjoy catching fish, but also experience the majestic, relaxing nature of an amazing day on Great Lake Erie. As a veteran and first responder, I've found days on Lake Erie to be healing and therapeutic for the mind and soul. I am committed to sharing this to others through programs such as Walleye for Wounded Heroes and also through trips with customers like you!
I envision Fully Involved to be an experience that leaves customers completely satisfied with their day and meets any level of expectation in a fishing journey. We will make a great day for those that wish to just come out, relax, and catch fish; or we will teach and have you running the trolling system by the end of your journey if you have the desire to learn.
As your Captain, I pledge to give you 100% from dock to dock, and make this fishing experience something you will cherish!
