Pacifictime Sportfishing

Spend a fantastic day on Lake Erie with Pacifictime Sportfishing! This charter not only welcomes children but encourages them to come aboard. Captain Todd Pavlik loves teaching people how to fish and the little ones are no exception. All ages are welcome, so bring your whole family and set off to a new adventure.

Captain Todd welcomes you aboard his 30’ Pursuit offshore fishing boat. She’s powered by twin 265 HP Crusader engines that can reach high speeds and take you to your fishing spot very fast. The boat accommodates up to 5 guests and there’s enough room for everybody to fish at the same time.

This spacious boat also has a private toilet and resting area and she’s equipped with a cooler to keep your snacks and drinks fresh. The captain provides life vests for everybody age 8 and above, so please bring the smaller ones if your kids are younger.

You’ll target Walleye, Steelhead, and Yellow Perch, mostly using trolling. You can keep the catch and the crew will clean it for you. Your fishing equipment is included in the price but you’ll need to purchase your fishing license in advance.

A trip with Pacifictime Sportfishing could be the one where your kid catches their first fish. It may even start a lifelong passion for fishing, so you may have to buy a few rods after the trip. Book a trip with Capt. Todd and spend unforgettable family time on Lake Erie.
