Looking to share your passion for fishing with your family? Maybe you want to tick a monster fish off your bucket list? JT Sportfishing Charters will put you on top of the hottest bite on Lake Erie while providing premier service.

Captain John Tucholski invites you to join him for a fishing excursion on board his 30’ Sportcraft. She’s roomy and you can bring 5 of your family or fishing buddies with you. You’ll be on top of the fish after a quick and smooth ride, thanks to the 400 HP MerCruiser engine.

The boat is comfortable so you can focus on making the perfect cast. There’s a toilet on board, as well as a bed in case you want to take a break between the strikes.

Fishing with Capt. John is all about hooking up Walleye, Jumbo Perch, and Smallmouth Bass. He has a variety of packages available and he’s able to cater to any angler’s taste. If you’re looking to introduce your kids to the joys of fishing, the 4-hour trip is very family-friendly. You’ll drift on light tackle with the captain.

Anglers looking to hook up a trophy or beat their personal best should hit the waters of Lake Erie on the afternoon or full day trips.

Kids are welcome on board and the captain will provide every guest with all the necessary safety and fishing equipment. You’re free to bring your own tackle though.

Book a trip with JT Sportfishing Charters today and explore the bountiful waters of Lake Erie the right way, with a rod in your hands!
