School Of Baits Charters Crew

Your Captain for your adventures is Damian Kuzmin. Damian was born and Raised in Erie Pennsylvania. He is married to his wife Christine and has three children. He spent numerous hours fishing with family and friends since an early age. Damian was taught how to fish from his teacher and mentor, his father. In his early days, the family boat was chained to a tree at Walnut Creek. This was way before the Walnut Creek we know of today.

Damian has fished on many waters but always has called Lake Erie Home. We spent some time fishing North Carolina, this was during what we called the Time Off years. Damian took a break from charter fishing and spent about 10 years fishing saltwater in the Hatteras and Oregon Inlet North Carolina. Damian became a licensed USCG captain in 1989. In 2015 Damian upgraded his license to a Masters License with 200 Nautical mile offshore. Your First mate is Gabby Jo Kuzmin, Damian and Christines oldest Daughter. She shares the families passion for any type of fishing.
