Why Hire a Charter Captain?

If you are interested in booking a charter with one of the vetted Lake Erie Charter Captains, we think you are making a great decision for a variety of different reasons. These reasons range from local knowledge of waters/fishery, local knowledge of laws and regulations, cost effective decision vs. owning a boat or towing your own boat, all equipment provided, fish cleaned and discarding of carcass legally, are just a few of the reasons!

Local Knowledge
Local Knowledge

Local Knowledge of the waters/fishery

Many of the captains listed here have decades of fishing experience on Lake Erie.  They understand the unique ecosystem here at a deeper level then most.  From seasonal migration patterns, to how water temps and clarity affect lure selection, to the best times of day or night to get on the bite.  Let this deep knowledge base work for you and cut years off the learning curve or simply know that you are giving yourself the best chance of catching fish that day by being on their boat.

Laws & Regulations
Laws & Regulations

Local knowledge of laws and regulations

There are specific laws and regulations that change depending on the time of year your are fishing, the species you are fishing for and the body of water your fishing on. Not abiding by these laws can end up ruining your trip and cost your more than you expected. Let our captains minimize this risk and keep you on the right side of the law.

Cost Effective Solution

Owning your own boat, paying for gas plus the wear and tear you put on both the vehicle and the boat can make hiring a charter captain a cost effective solution. Plus the peace of mind of just having to show up and go fishing and not worrying about anything else is often times worth more than anything.

All Equipment Provided

All Equipment Provided

How much space would you save on the ride up by not having to worry about packing all your fishing gear for the day? Not to mention that there is probably a good chance you don’t have the exact lure you need for that day on those specific conditions. No worries though, our captains most likely have exactly that!
Fish Cleaned and Discarded

Fish Cleaned and Discarding of Carcass Legally

Don’t get your hands dirty! Let the captain clean your fish the proper way for you so all you have to worry about is how you want to cook it up and what seasoning you want to use for your meal later that evening. There are also specific laws revolving around proper ways to discard of the carcass; again not something you have to worry about when you hire a charter captain as they will take care of that for you.
