Lake Erie Charter Service LLC

Come join Lake Erie Charter Service LLC for an epic fishing adventure.
This charter is as much about fishing as creating an enjoyable experience for every type of angler. Whether you are the angler who wants to be handed a rod with a fish already hooked, or the angler who wants to be a part of every step, Captain Tom Ullum has you covered!

Capt. Tom grew up fishing Lake Erie, and he’s all about having a good time on the water. With him as your guide, you’ll have the chance to target some of this Great Lake’s famous species – Walleye and Steelhead! In addition to this, your captain is more than prepared to accommodate any special requests, so don’t hesitate to ask. He’ll help you tailor your trip to perfectly suit your preferences.

You’ll be fishing from your captain’s 30’ Hewescraft Alaskan, freshly on the water in 2021. Powered by two 200 HP Mercury outboards and a 15 HP kicker motor, it can accommodate up to 6 guests in comfort. The vessel is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, life jackets for a variety of ages, as well as gear that’ll help you drift fish and troll for your catch. Usually, there will be up to 12 lines in the water at all times and, when the fish bite, you’ll take it in turns to fight it.

When it comes to the trips on offer, your captain recommends that experienced anglers opt for the Steelhead/Walleye combo adventure. It’s great way to test your skills and catch some tasty fish. All of your captain’s other trips can be adjusted to fit anglers of all skill levels, and shorter trips are the perfect option for families traveling with little ones. If you’re not sure which trip to opt for, just speak to Capt. Tom beforehand, and he’ll help you out.

Your captain will provide you with rods, reels, lures, and bait. You’ll need to bring along snacks and drinks, a cooler to store your catch in, and a valid fishing license. Then you just need to get ready to cast off on an excellent adventure with Lake Erie Charter Service LLC!

I started fishing at a very young age. My grandfather had a boat on Lake Erie. Not only did my father also have a boat on Lake Erie, but he had a bass boat too. Needless to say I didn't have a chance of not becoming a fisherman! If we weren't on Lake Erie fishing, we were on one of the other nearby inland lakes. From when I was about age 10 and onwards, we fished at least one tournament a week. There really aren't a lot of styles of fishing I don't have some sort of experience in. Fishing for me has always just been "what we do."
