Tight Lines Sport Fishing LLC

It’s time to book your Lake Erie adventure today! Captain Jim of Tight Lines Sport Fishing LLC is looking forward to welcoming you on board. No experience is necessary – Capt. Jim will ensure you have a fantastic day fishing with him. Capt. Jim has been fishing for decades, and decided to create his own charter company in 2019 – he wants others to find the same love of fishing that he has. He knows all the top spots to take you to get the most out of your day.

You’ll be fishing on the classic Bayliner Trophy 2060, which was restored in 2019. This is a great boat with comfortable seats and plenty of rod holders. More rods in the water increases your chances of catching fish! This boat is good on rough water, making it great for kids and beginners alike.

There is enough cover for 2 to sit while 2 are fishing on the deck. You’ll be fishing in rotation for the likes of Perch, Walleye, Steelhead, and even a Lake Trout or two. Each fish has its own season and limit, which the captain will inform you about. The captain will recommend where the keeper fish can be taken to be cleaned and filleted. There is also a service available to have your fish exchanged, pound-for-pound, for smoked fillets. Have a cooler in the car ready to take your fish home in.

Rods and tackle are included in the price of trips and are all new Okuma: trolling rods, ultralights, and spinning rods. You are welcome to bring your own lucky rods or tackle if you wish.

Everyone over 16 in the group will need a valid PA fishing license with a Lake Erie Combo Stamp. This must be bought before the day but can be signed on the morning of the trip. You’ll also need to bring food and drink, which there is space for on board. No alcohol is allowed on board. It’s best to wear light clothing in layers with deck shoes.

Book a trip with Tight Lines Sport Fishing LLC for an epic Lake Erie fishing experience! This is fun for the whole family!

"I have always enjoyed the boat life and water. I was "hooked" on fishing as a child at Cape Cod, Massachusetts where I caught my first rememberable fish." Captain Jim can remember the first fish he caught, a Sunfish off the coast of Cape Cod. He has a passion for fishing and enjoys fishing Lake Erie and her tributaries.
