Lost Tackle Charters – Ashtabula

The fishing opportunities in Lake Erie are one of the best things about Ohio. Let "Lost Tackle Charters" and Captain Alan Ammon show you just how good it can get! Freshwater fishing enthusiasts of all skill levels are invited onboard for a chance to catch some legendary fish.

Your vessel for the day is a 28’ Cherokee boat, freshly restored in 2021 and decked out with the latest in safety gear and navigational electronics. She’s perfect for a group of 6 anglers, who all want to be able to fish at the same time. Comfort is no problem thanks to ample seating and a private toilet.

Capt. Alan makes sure you have a great day on the water and puts plenty of fish on the boat. You’ll go after two Lake Erie legends: Yellow Perch and Walleye. Troll in deeper waters for that fun-to-catch and tasty Walleye, or stick to shallower waters closer to shore for Yellow Perch. Trolling is Capt. Alan’s favorite way to get big fish on the boat but you cast and jig too.

All of your gear is waiting on board when you arrive at the dock. What you will want to bring are drinks and snacks to enjoy throughout the trip! Let Capt. Alan know in advance if there are any children in your party so he can provide life jackets.

Lastly, don’t forget to pick up an Ohio fishing license online or from a registered vendor. What are you waiting for? Strap in for some freshwater fun with Lost Tackle Charters!

As a long-time fisherman and tournament angler, my dream has always been to be a Charter Captain on Lake Erie. I set my goal many years ago and now enjoy meeting new people on each trip I take. I have many different ways to catch these tasty critters and happy to share my knowledge with others. I have a real passion for catching fish and will work extremely hard to make sure we put fish in the boat.
