Tall Tales Fishing Charters

Head over to Lake Erie and create some great memories with Tall Tales Fishing Charters. Captain Jim has been fishing his whole life. His father taught him to fish when he was a kid, and it’s a passion of his that has never diminished. He loves sharing this love of fishing with his customers.

Up to 6 anglers can fish on his 29’ offshore fishing boat. This is a great sturdy boat with plenty of space for trolling with multiple lines. This gives customers the best chance of hooking fish and more opportunities to reel ‘em in. There’s plenty of space on the deck so your group won’t bump elbows. There’s also some protection against the wind and sunshine.

Between April and October, you’ll be targeting Yellow Perch and Walleye. You’ll be able to fish for the full 8 hours or until limits are met. July and August are peak months to fish, so make sure you book your trip in advance.

Children over 10 are welcome on board, but you’ll need to bring along your own life vests for them. You should also bring your own food and drink in a cooler. The fish caught during the trip will go into the captain’s cooler. After the trip, the captain can tell you where to have your catch cleaned and filleted. This will be an additional cost.

You’re welcome to bring beer along, as long as it isn’t in glass bottles. Hard liquors are not allowed on board. You should wear white-soled shoes and dress in light layers, so you’re ready for warm as well as chilly weather throughout the day.

Please buy a fishing license before the day. In case the trip has to be rescheduled, only sign the license on the day of the trip.

About the Captain

"Have fished Lake Erie since I was a child. My father did work for the Pflueger rod and reel company, and taught me to fish." Jim has been a captain for over 18 years. He first started fishing part-time, but loved it so much that when he retired he kept on doing it! For him, being out in the open is the best part of the job, while enjoying the water and surrounding nature. Captain Jim wants people to leave all their problems behind at the dock and enjoy their time on his boat.
