Reef Bobber Fishing Charters On The 5

Join Reef Bobber Fishing Charters and fill out your bucket with tasty fish! Launching from Lakeside Marblehead, Captain Brad Miller offers amazing fishing trips from April-November. Lake Erie fishing can be challenging at times, but this doesn’t mean you have to be an expert. These trips are suitable for beginners as well, so don’t hesitate to join. You got to start fishing somewhere, so why not in one of the best freshwater places in the world?

You will be casting your line out of a 22’ Starcraft cuddy cabin with a 150 HP Evinrude engine and plenty of space to seat up to 4 anglers. The boat sports an 11’ beam and a convertible top to keep you safe from the elements, because the weather on western Lake Erie can be tricky. There’s an enclosed porta potty on board, so you will travel and fish in full comfort.

The main targets on your trip are Yellow Perch and Walleye but you can also catch some Smallmouth Bass as well. There are several techniques you can use to catch them and you’ll mostly do jigging, bottom fishing, and drifting. For Perch specifically, you’ll use minnow-tipped hookes, which are a great fun for kids as well.

The captain will clean your catch after the trip free of charge. Whether you decide to prepare it at your home or take it to a restaurant, you’ll enjoy a delicious meal.

Capt. Brad fully covers your fishing equipment but there are some things you need to prepare - your license, food, and drinks.
