A&C Sportfishing Charters LLC

A&C Sportfishing Charters LLC is a full-service fishing charter company operating along the southern banks of Lake Erie. Locally-owned and operated by Captain Alex Zelinko, every charter has been built from years of experience out on the lake. You’ll be fishing the best spots around to bring in a boatload of fish and have a blast doing so!

Capt. Alex’s 29’ Baha boat was built to dominate the lake. Her ample deck space lets you all fish at once while her dipsy divers and planer boards bring hard-to-reach within range. She has a livewell to keep your bait fresh and ice chests for you catch. In short, she has everything you’ll need for some awesome angling.

The boat is more than some stripped-back center console, though. She has a comfortable cabin where you can escape the elements and even has a portable head for extra comfort on longer trips. This makes her perfect for families, kids, and anyone who wants to enjoy a great day on Lake Erie.

Spend the day chasing either Perch or Walleye, Capt. Alex’s specialty species. Walleye trips focus on either drifting or trolling, while Perch fishing involves a variety of techniques depending on how deep the fish are. You can also bring in tasty Rainbow Trout if you’re lucky.

All A&C Sportfishing Charters trips come with quality rods and reels, as well as a choice of lures and live bait. Capt. Alex prepares his bait ahead of the trip so you can spend as much time as possible fishing. So grab your fishing license and food and drinks and jump aboard for a classic Lake Erie fishing experience!
