Crazyeyes Charters is a premier Lake Erie charter service operating out of Lakeside Marblehead, OH. Their crew specializes in Walleye and Perch fishing, as well as creating the most memorable fishing experience for their customers.

They run a 30’ kid-friendly Sportcraft with a bathroom and a cabin to get out of the elements, providing maximum comfort to you and up to 5 other guests, no age limits. The boat comes powered by a 440 HP Chevy engine that can ensure a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. You’ll have access to ice and live bait boxes on board to keep that bait and catch fresh.

If you are looking to reel in fish, Captain Rick Phillips will provide you with an action-packed day out on the water, full of thrills and excitement. His skilled crew will make sure to accommodate all your needs and ensure you have a great time angling.

You’ll be using light tackle for Perch and the captain will take you fishing near islands. Your live bait will be waiting for you before the trip. If you decide to go after Walleye, you’re be focusing on trolling using nightcrawlers as bait.

All the necessary equipment will be covered by the charter and the service of catch cleaning is available at an additional fee after the trip. The first mate will be there for you during the trip, so gratuity for him is highly appreciated.

Crazyeyes Charters looks forward to fishing with you soon – book them now for an unforgettable fishing experience!

Captain Rick Phillips owns and operates Crazyeyes Charter. He has been a charter captain for the past five years but he has been fishing his whole life. His charters are very family-oriented and his favorite thing about fishing is taking people out to do something he likes and something they wouldn't usually do, especially kids. The thing the customers like the most about his trips is that they're fun, they catch a lot of fish, and everything is supplied to them.
