Tournament Team

The Dream Catcher Sportfishing Tournament Team consist of Jim Steel, Diane Steel, Rich Fliss and Jeff Whipple.  The team has been fishing together for several years now.  The team participates in all the major walleye tournaments in the eastern basin of Lake Erie.  They have consistently finished in the top of the field.  

We have welcomed several guest team members over the past few years including Tom Miranda, Jim Brauer, Nick Jagow, Craig Sleeman and Ronnie Rhodes.

In 2019, the team of Jim Steel, Rich Fliss, Craig Sleeman and Jim Brauer took the biggest overall box for the Northern Chautauqua Conservation Club Derby.

The 2016 season was very exciting.  The team took 3rd place big box and 2nd place largest walleye at the Sunset Bay Walleye Shootout. At Northern Chautauqua Conservation Club Walleye Derby, the team finished in the top 1/4 of the field.  Once again, the weather and wind were challenging.  Thank you to guest team member, Tom Miranda for joining us for this event.

In 2015, they participated in the Top Gun Walleye Series, Big Dawg Invitational, Sunset Bay Walleye Shootout, Northern Chautauqua Conservation Club Walleye Derby and the Dunkirk Walleye Classic.  The team consistently finished at the top of the field.

The team won the 2012 Amera-Can tournament, one of the largest in the area. 

The team is continuously researching and developing new strategies and techniques to insure consistent success. The team is proud to partner the following companies that help them to be successful.
