My Bonnie Charters

My Bonnie Charters offers world-class Walleye fishing right at your doorstep! Captain Marc Bottone, the owner and operator of this charter, has been running fishing trips in the area for over 10 years. He’s constantly working on making his trips better, which is why he has so many returning customers year after year.

The Walleye season starts in June and ends in October. However, in the middle of the season, Capt. Marc relocates his business to Lake Ontario, which offers great Salmon and Steelhead fishing.

You will be fishing aboard one of the finest sportfishing boats ever built. The 28’ Carolina Classic is made for long offshore runs in big water, keeping you dry and comfortable. All anglers will have seating and ample room to stretch out. She’s powered by 2 375 HP Crusader engines and accommodates up to 5 anglers.

You’ll target Walleye in the open waters off Lorain Harbor. Capt. Marc uses advanced trolling tactics to fill the cooler with one of the tastiest fish in fresh water. This is a great way for the most novice or experienced angler to catch a limit of Lake Erie’s “gold.”

Lake Erie fishing is all Walleye and the fishery there has been amazing for the last couple of years. Capt. Marc’s clients usually reach catch limits before the trip time runs out. In these cases, the captain takes them to an area where they can have a cookout. Captain Marc will clean the catch and prepare it on a grill.

You need to purchase your fishing license on time and bring your snacks and drinks for the day.

My Bonnie Charters trips are often sold out in advance. Make sure to book your spot on the boat on time!

"I’m truly eager to show you my pride of ownership." Captain Marc is all about customer service and making sure his guests have a good time. He has a lot of repeat clientele, which led to him being fully booked on Lake Ontario for the second year in a row. During summer, he runs fishing trips on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, while during winter he works as a policeman.
