Summer Bandit Charters

Walleye fishing with one of the Summer Bandit Charter captains is always a great way to spend your day! With their newest addition to the fleet, you’ll have even more options for fishing. If you notice one boat is booked for the date you want, simply check the other one.

The second boat is the newer version of the 30’ Sportcraft they already have. There’s enough room for 6 guests and everybody can fish at the same time. You’ll have all necessary navigational electronics to locate the fish easily, a live bait tank, and a private toilet. There’s plenty of seating space to make the trip more comfortable.

Your main target will, of course, be Walleye but you can occasionally get Yellow Perch as well. The captain specializes in several techniques, so you can try out trolling, drifting, or jigging. Once the trip is over, you’re not leaving empty handed – you can keep the catch! Just make sure to bring your cooler to carry it.

Your fishing equipment, lures, and bait are fully covered. Make sure to purchase your fishing license in advance and bring some snacks and drinks for the day.

Fish with the crew that knows how to find the hottest spots. Summer Bandit Charters are available every day Apr-Oct and they’re always ready to make a memorable day for you!

Captain Paul has been fishing this lake for 30 years. A lot of his friends are captains, so he started his career working for them as a first mate. He decided to become a captain himself and got his license in 2018. Having beginners on the boat is something he loves, showing them how to fish on Lake Erie and teaching them his techniques. Introducing kids to the world of fishing has been his passion his whole life.
