Hooked Up Sportfishing – Port Clinton

Bring a loved one along with you and explore Lake Erie’s productive waters with Hooked Up Sportfishing. Based out of Port Clinton’s Oak Harbor, you’ll be on the Great Lake in no time, getting ready to target some big, strong, and delicious Walleye to take home.

With a lifetime’s experience on the water, there’s no one better to show you Erie’s productive fishing grounds than Captain William Rea. His trips are tailored to the seasons, as he knows exactly what bites where and when. Expect a professional and exhilarating trip as you try to reel in your daily limit of huge fish.

Throughout the year, you’ll have the chance to troll for Walleye, while March and April will also allow you to jig. During this period, the spawning fish gather in huge numbers, making the reefs a productive fishing ground. Use a range of artificial lures on top-of-the-line gear, and you’ll be well on your way to taking home plenty of delicious fish.

Aboard the 20’ Pro-Line dual console, you’ll have everything needed for a productive day. Speed off to the sweet spots thanks to the onboard fishfinder, GPS, and the 150 HP outboard Mercury engine. She’s designed to stay steady as you battle it out against some monster fish, and 2 guests will have plenty of space as you try to reel in as many fish as possible.

In some exceptional circumstances, 3 guests will be allowed, but make sure to speak to the captain before. Anglers of all levels are welcome to come and perfect their skills, while children over 6 are also allowed. Capt. William would just like to remind parents to be mindful that trips can be quite long, so children should only come aboard if they can handle it.

Other than that, you’re good to go. Take advantage of this opportunity to explore one of the Great Lakes’ incredible fishing with Hooked Up Sportfishing. Just grab your fishing license, bring some drinks and snacks and make the most of it!

Member since February 2019
An avid angler since he was a child, Captain William has been on boats his whole life. Growing up in Michigan, he spent every second possible out on the Great Lakes and has worked hard to get where he is today – doing what he loves doing for a living. At the age of 13, he became the youngest member of the Association, despite being too young to have a valid ID, before moving on to being a first mate on several boats. He's been running his own charters since 2000 and still never tires of getting out on the water.
