Here at Gator4charters, they strive to give every guest the best learning and engaging fishing experience. Your guide, Captain Brian, runs a family friendly charter,  which means he welcomes all ages to enjoy the hobby of fishing. He wants everybody on board to be part of the action. Don’t be afraid to grab that fishing rod and contribute to a bountifully hull!

A group of up to 6 guests can join on the captain’s 28’ Baha boat. This cruiser boat is equipped with the latest navigational and safety equipment, and she’s powered by a 350 HP Mercruiser engine. She also has an enclosed cabin, a private toilet, and lots of seating space. Even if it starts raining, you’ll enjoy a safe, dry, and comfortable ride.

During your trip, you’ll mostly be trolling for Walleye, which is the most effective way to fill your bucket. You can spend a small part of the trip drifting or anchored jigging for Perch and Walleye. If you want a more hard-core experience, come after July, later in the season, when the fish move to deeper spots.

Capt. Brian will cover your fishing equipment, but you’ll need to purchase your fishing license and bring snacks and drinks. If you want him to clean your catch after the trip, he’ll gladly do it for a small fee ($2 per fish).

Do not worry about your experience level when it comes to fishing and boating, because all levels are welcome. Gator4charters and Captain Brian aim to have a fun time out on the lake for every guest!

    Walleye fishing in Lake Erie is at its best. Early in the season (May-July) there's no need to go far and it's a perfect trip for families and kids. Later in the season, you'll need to cover more distance to reach the fishing grounds. Capt. Brian encourages everyone to be involved during the trip, even if you don't have any fishing experience. This is a great opportunity for the kids to catch their first fish!

I started back in 1976, when I bought my first boat and have been an avid fisher since. I lived right next to Lake Erie for forty years now. My main catches are Walleye, Perch, and Steelhead. The largest Walleye I have ever caught was 14lbs 32” back in 2016 and I’m ready to top my record hopefully this summer.
