All trips are limited to 6 persons or less and are FULL7-hour charters. Rates are all-inclusive -- We provide:
Rods, reels and lures Bait and Ice (There may be an additional charge for smallmouth bass trips.) Knowledgeable and polite crew.
If you have a larger group, I will schedule additional boats to accommodate your needs. I can also arrange for your fish to be professionally cleaned for an additional fee.
When booking a Fall walleye charter, ask me about booking a "species combination trip" at no additional charge.
Walleye $630.00 - Ohio waters
Whether in the Western or Central Basin, walleye are considered the "Pride & Joy" of Lake Erie Anglers. This fantastic fishery has been rated #1 in the world by In-Fishermanmagazine. You are sure to be provided with one of the finest freshwater fishing experiences of your life.
Smallmouth Bass $630.00
When fishing for smallmouth bass, the "prime time" is August thru October. I fish both Canadian islands and the Bass islands areas.
Anyone that has ever fished for "smalies" knows of the fish's explosive aerial acrobatics and exciting fishing challenge. Two and three pound fish are common with an occasional five (or more) pounder being taken. There will be an extra charge when live bait is used on bass trips.
Yellow Perch $630.00
One of the best ways to introduce fishing to families is to angle for Yellow Perch. With the restrictions placed on the harvest of perch by the Ohio DNR, their size and number have increased significantly. Limits on both commercial netting and sportfishing are successfully returning this fishery to its position as everyone's favorites.
Perch fishing begins in earnest in August and continues thru the fall months. Young and old alike enjoy the non-stop action of perch fishing. There's nothing like hearing someone shout, "I've got another double!" You'll also be taking home one of the most delectable panfish available.
