Billy D Charters

Billy D Charters invites you to spend a day on the prolific waters of Lake Erie, catch your limit of fish, and make some beautiful memories! Captain Dean Northcutt has been running charters out of Port Clinton for 30 years, and he built a successful career on his dedication to his customers’ satisfaction.

Join him on his 30’ Baha boat with a 350 HP Mercruiser engine and Capt. Dean will go out of his way to show you to the best fishing hideouts. The vessel can sit up to 6 anglers and is equipped with reliable navigational electronics that will make sure you stay on the fish’s tail. There’s a private toilet on board, so you’ll be fishing in comfort even on full day trips.

Your guide will also provide quality fishing equipment for you, live bait and an assortment of lures. Bear in mind that live bait is included in the price on the Walleye and Perch outings, and there’s an additional charge for it if you’re going after Bass.

Capt. Dean offers specialized trips where you’ll focus on one species, whether it’s Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, or Yellow and White Perch. Pick between half day and full day expeditions, choose your prey of preference, and your fishing jaunt can begin. To prepare for your adventure, buy a fishing license, and bring drinks, snacks, and lunch.

Whether you come with your kids or a group of fishing friends, Billy D Charters will show you what dynamic Lake Erie fishing is all about!

I've been fishing almost every day of my life and I decided to make a living out of it since I already enjoy it very much. I've been fishing for more than 50 years, and I got my captain's license 30 years ago. I'm a local and I know all the good spots for fishing, but more than anything, I love meeting new people and teaching them a new fishing trick or two.
