Knot Guilty Charters Llc

Discover the greatness of Lake Erie with Knot Guilty Charters. Based out of Marblehead, OH, you’ll get out on the lake in search of the many wonderful, delicious, and exciting fish. Head out up to 15 miles offshore with Captain John Bentley and boat owner Mark Archer. Both natives to the area, they know everything there is about these productive waters, and they’ll strive to show you a true and fun outdoor experience.

Explore these stunning shores aboard a spacious 30’ Sea Ray offshore sport fishing boat. Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard to enjoy this sturdy boat, specifically built for fishing. Decked out in style and with comfort in mind, there’s plenty of seating space for all on board, along with a full toilet and refrigerator.

Head off to the sweet spots with ease thanks to the onboard fishfinder and the twin 450 HP Chevrolet engines. Let your captain know if you’d like to fish with live bait, and he’ll stock up the livewell before your trip, and get ready to cast and jig, or sit back and wait for the bite as you troll.

Home to Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Walleye, you’ll have your fill of exciting and delicious fish on Lake Erie. Use all your skills and strength using light tackle to hook these aboard, and take home a tasty treat. Your catch will even be cleaned and prepared at the end of the trip, so all you need to do is cook it up!

Bottled water is also provided, so all you need to do is bring some drinks and snacks aboard and settle in for a fun day’s fishing. Grab a one-day fishing license before the trip and you’re good to go. Come and see what makes Lake Erie “great” with Knot Guilty Charters.
