Fish Butcher Charters

Make the most of the “Walleye Capital of the World” with Fish Butcher Charters. Leave the shores of Port Clinton behind and discover some serious fishing in the productive waters of Lake Erie. You’ll explore the famous lake’s western basin in search of some delicious and exciting fish, all with an experienced guide.

Captain Roger Butcher has fished the Great Lake for years, becoming a guide in his retirement. He specializes in fishing with light tackle and hopes to help you make the catch of your life as you fish with him. Let him show you why fishing is his biggest passion.

Step aboard the 30’ Sportcraft performance fishing boat and get your fish on. A spacious vessel, she can cater to up to 6 guests, with everyone able to fish at the same time. Fitted with a toilet, she’ll look after all your needs, while the onboard livewell, fishfinder, and GPS will make all your fishing dreams come true.

Capt. Roger can arrange for a deli-style lunch and some drinks to be provided, but you should also feel free to bring your own. Just make sure not to bring any glass bottles or hard liquor aboard.

When it comes to the fishing, you’re in for some of the best freshwater fishing the country has to offer. With light tackle, you’ll get to bottom fish to entice the bite of Perch and Walleye. Both known for their taste, you’d better bring your A-game to fill the boat and head home with the prospect of a tasty treat, as they’re sure to put up a fight to get off the end of your line.

What are you waiting for? Come and experience the Great Lakes with Fish Butcher Charters. Capt. Roger and his first mate can’t wait to welcome you aboard.

I've been fishing the western basin of Lake Erie for many years. My favorite style is drift fishing for Walleye with light tackle and high-quality St. Croix rods. After retirement from the Columbus Fire Department, I decided to take my passion for fishing and run fishing charters full-time on board a comfortable 2016 30' Sportcraft diesel.
