Blue Sky Charters

Come aboard Blue Sky Charters and find out what makes Lake Erie the Walleye capital of the world! This is also quite a unique opportunity to go fishing with Captain Peg, who has been a guide for over 17 years, and on top of that, has more than 60 years of fishing experience!

Your boat for the day is a 28’ Baha Cruiser that can comfortably take 6 anglers to new fishing escapades. She has a 370 HP Mercruiser engine and is able to reach the speed of up to 30 knots. The vessel also has a fully enclosed toilet, which is particularly important since Peg specializes in 8-hour trips.

Ohio’s Western Basin of Lake Erie has the best Walleye fishing in the world, and there’s no better time than now to join and catch some for yourself. Not only is this a popular freshwater sportfish, but it also tastes fantastic! You also get the chance to hook a fun-to-catch, great-to-eat Yellow Perch. Bear in mind that all trips are seasonal and can be booked from May to October.

Peg provides all her anglers with excellent equipment such as Saint Croix rods and Shimano reels, while bait, tackle, and ice are also included in the price.

Have fun going after Walleye and Perch combo on the ‘all inclusive’ trip and the captain’s 16-year-old grandson and first mate will join you. He will clean and fillet your catch for you at a small extra fee. He works for tips, so gratuities of 15-20% of the trip price are welcome and encouraged.

If you want drinks and homemade lunch on board, just let the captainess know beforehand, and she will gladly prepare everything for a small additional charge.

Whether you are a group of guys or gals, a family with kids, or entertaining a group of clients, fishing trips with Blue Sky Charters are ones to remember! Youngsters are welcome and life vests for them are provided. If your kids are 16 or older, they need their own fishing license.

Lake Erie is truly a sports fisherman’s dream, so join Captain Peg on lake fishing adventures and earn your braggin’ rights!

    When just going for Walleye or Yellow Perch isn't enough, go for the combo! This all-inclusive trip gives you the chance to catch a little bit (or a lot) of both, and go home feeling like a pro angler. For this trip, you will have a first mate aboard with you, who is amazing at his job and happens to be Captainess' Peg grandson. He will help you pull the fish out, clean it for you (for small $1.25-$1.50 fee per fish) and for all his hard work, 15-20% tip is customary.

Like many captains, I grew up in the Walleye capital of the world and was a recreational angler before I became a captain. I come from 2 generations of passionate anglers, and I've passed that passion onto my son (who is also a captain) and grandchildren. I learned the lake and the movement of the fish at a young age. As a captain, my job is not just to put you on the fish, but to find the fish that are biting. Erie is a big lake and finding the right area to fish is a process that starts before and continues during the charter. The area with the best bite changes and I’m fortunate to work with other great captains who share information on fishing conditions. Working together allows us to spread out and fish a larger area. We can narrow the depth, the count, lure type, and color to increase our catch. I’m thankful that I can share my love of fishing with others who enjoy it as much as I do.
