Position Statement

The purpose of this association is to encourage and promote sound fisheries management in Lake Erie by supporting the charter boat industry and creating a better working relationship between the association, law enforcement agencies, politicians and the sport fishing public. 


Captain Paul Pacholski, President 

I would like to thank everyone who are members of LECBA and ask for your continued support. LECBA is not a social club! We are the Voice of Lake Erie and the most powerful lobbying organization on the Great Lakes. 


We advocate Lake Erie issues, connecting with our state and federal legislators 15 to 20 times a year to continue to develop strong relationships. 


We cannot stop our efforts. I hope those who are not members of LECBA will take this opportunity to join and be a part of the ongoing efforts to preserve Lake Erie. Thanks to current members who support our mission.
