Make your way to the south end of Lake Erie for some world-class fishing! You’ll be out on the water with Captain Al who has over 40 years of Walleye fishing experience on this lake.

He’ll take you to the water on his 23’ Chris-Craft walkaround. Built in 1985, its been Captain Al’s trusted companion for a long time. It’s rigged up with all that you need for a successful day on the lake including fishfinder technology, GPS, and a live bait well.

Walleye is the specialty species of Lake Erie so that will be your main target. However, the lake has Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Crappie that you can also target. Rods and reels are supplied for trolling but if you wish to go jigging you should take your own gear for it.

If you are from Ohio then a Lake Erie permit is covered but if you’re from elsewhere then you’ll need to book it in advance of your trip. Catch cleaning is not included in the price but you’ll be given directions to the nearest cleaning stations. Live bait is used occasionally and if you would like to use it then please ask in advance so that it can be arranged for you.

For some superb Trophy Walleye fishing, you need not look much further beyond Grumpy’s Charters.
