Mainstream Fishing Charters – 26'

Always wanted to come face-to-gills with that feisty freshwater beast, the Musky? Or maybe you want to take your family out on an adventure to catch some tasty table fare? Come aboard Mainstream Fishing Charters, where you’ll get the chance to experience the world-famous fisheries of Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie, as well as Southwest Ontario’s local creeks, marshes, and canals that are just full to the brim with incredible species!

Captain David Weil is at the helm of this charter, and he’s the perfect companion when it comes exploring these fantastic fishing grounds – he’s been fishing the Great Lakes since his early childhood, after all. He uses his years of local knowledge to provide top-notch freshwater adventures for anglers of all ages and abilities. Whether you want fast-paced, hardcore angling action, or a fun family day out on the lake, he’s got you covered.

You’ll be traveling on your captain’s 26’ Penn Yan flybridge vessel, built to transport up to 6 guests out to the hot spots – plenty of room for the whole family, or bring along your best angling buddies for the fishing competition of a lifetime! She’s decked out with a private toilet, GPS and fishfinder, life jackets in a variety of sizes, and a flybridge. There’s plenty of room on board for your favorite snacks and drinks, too, so bring them along.

Capt. David targets some of the best freshwater fisheries around, so you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to the species on offer. Want plenty of hands-on action? Get ready to chase Musky and test your skills against this freshwater favorite. Want to reel in something tasty to take home for supper? Head to Lake Erie, often called “the Walleye capital of the world!” Capt. David will fillet your catch for you for a small cost. Other species on offer include Perch, Steelhead, and Large and Smallmouth Bass.

Your trip includes rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Grab a fishing license and get ready to make some memories with Mainstream Fishing Charters!

It all started at Capt. David Weil's grandfather's farm pond...within minutes he caught his first fish, a Largemouth Bass, and he was hooked! Since the early age of 6, Capt. David has developed and grown an extreme passion for the sport of fishing. He's been fishing the Great Lakes since his early childhood, and has had the pleasure of fishing and guiding on the Great Lakes, as well as many lakes throughout NW Ontario. He also has many hours of tournament experience fishing local tournaments, like Musky’s Canada Belle river chapter opener and closer events, Big Boys Derby, Lasalle Walleye Classic and a few others. Capt. David is driven to ensure success every time he sets sail on the water, and we ensure you that you are in good hands!
