Summer Bandit Charters

Explore the wonders of Lake Erie with Summer Bandit Charters! Captain Paul will take you on a quest for the tastiest freshwater fish you’ll ever catch. Whether you’re already a fishing enthusiast or you’re setting off to catch your first trophy, you’ll have a great time here. Capt. Paul has over 30 years of experience on this lake, so fishing by his side is sure to bring lots of knowledge and tricks.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 27’ Hewscraft pilothouse that accommodates up to 6 anglers. This brand new fishing machine was made in 2020 and features the latest navigational electronics. There are twin 150 HP Suzuki engines, a live bait tank, and a private toilet. There’s enough room for all anglers to fish in comfort, offering a safe and reliable ride at all times.

Try out trolling, spinning, and jigging, depending on your target. Some of the species you can catch here are Walleye, Yellow Perch, Catfish, Steelhead, Smallmouth Bass, and White Bass. Since you get to keep your catch, don’t forget to bring a cooler and keep the fish fresh until you get home.

All fishing equipment is included in the price. You’ll need to purchase your fishing license and pack food and drinks you’d like for your day out. It’s recommended to watch the forecast, so you can dress accordingly.

There’s nothing more relaxing than a day of fishing on the lake. Book with Summer Bandit Charters and enjoy it to the fullest!

Captain Paul has been fishing this lake for 30 years. A lot of his friends are captains, so he started his career working for them as a first mate. He decided to become a captain himself and got his license in 2018. Having beginners on the boat is something he loves, showing them how to fish on Lake Erie and teaching them his techniques. Introducing kids to the world of fishing has been his passion his whole life.
