Get up early and smile with the rising sun, because Three Lil Bird Charters is calling you aboard. Don’t worry about a thing as you get out on the productive waters of Lake Erie and explore the riches of exciting and delicious fish they have to offer.

Under the guidance of Captain Sean Schroeder, you’re in for a fruitful day. A local to these shores, he’s been fishing since he can remember. He promises to get you on the biggest, most exciting fish, and will do everything he can to help you hit your daily limit.

Aboard the 26’ SeaSwirl walkaround boat, you’ll want for nothing. The 350 HP Mercruiser engine will power you to the sweet spots in no time, as you sit back and enjoy the spacious deck. Capt. Sean will provide plenty of bottled water for you to stay hydrated, and there’s a toilet on board, so don’t feel shy about stocking up!

You’ll find a fully-stocked livewell on board, so you know you’re in good hands. Drift fish with the latest Daiwa gear or let the trolling lines do the work for you. Get ready to leap into action when you hear the reels screech and settle in for a thrilling battle against some tough-fighting fish.

Lake Erie is overflowing with exciting and tasty fish. Target Walleye in the main for an experience you’ll never forget. These creatures, the largest in the Perch family, love to bite first thing in the morning, but you’ll also get to spot them at night with their glow. There’s never a bad time to go after them, so come aboard and get your fish on!

Everything you need is taken care of, as the captain will even clean and fillet your catch to take home at the end of the trip. Just bring some snacks and beverages aboard and get ready to make the most of Lake Erie fishing. Three Lil Birds Charters are waiting to whizz you away.

A local to the beautiful Ohio shores of Lake Erie, Captain Sean has always loved getting out on the water. He does whatever it takes to get out on the lake whenever he can, and so started running charters alongside his day job to give him that excuse. He's now had this boat for over 7 years, while he's been a captain for a while before. He brings with him plenty of experience and even more passion, as he promises to get you reeling in plenty of Walleye.
