Come up to Lakeside Marblehead Ohio and discover the western area of Lake Erie. There H2Oboss Charters is waiting for you to provide a safe and exciting cruise on the waters of the lake. Hopefully, after a fun trip, you’ll have a cooler full of fish. The experienced Captain John Ware will be with you to make sure of that.

You’ll be gliding the cool waters of Lake Erie on the Sportcraft (walkaround) model from 2001. The charter takes up to 5 guests per trip, and they’ll be happy to know there’s an onboard toilet for their convenience. The boat is 27ft long and it is equipped with a single Mercruiser engine with 310HP that can reach speeds of 35 knots.

The crew can take you to the nearshore and offshore locations of the western basin of Lake Erie, along with its reef locations. The clients can fish for Walleye and Yellow Perch. You get to choose from several fishing techniques like light tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, just to name some. It’s best you ask Captain John for pointers.

Children of 10 years of age and older are welcome aboard. Be sure to check and purchase the online license for Lake Erie fishing in Ohio, as the charter doesn’t cover it. They do provide the fishing equipment and lures and some live bait on board. The crew includes a first mate. Feel free to bring some beverages and snacks.

When up north it would be a shame to miss the relaxing fishing adventure on the waters of Lake Erie. Book a trip with H2Oboss Charters and have a great time, and hopefully after it a fridge full fish.
