Ratchetjaw Charters

The town of Monroe Michigan lies just between Toledo and Detroit. With its River Raisin National Park and the shore of Lake Erie, this place is great to get away from the hustle and bustle.  When you’re there, use the opportunity to contact Ratchetjaw Charters. They will help you set off on the waters of Lake Erie and do some relaxing fishing. Captain Aaron Brink will guide you along the way and make sure you have a good time.

You’ll be gliding the lake on board the Hewescraft Ocean Pro, aluminum fishing model from 2020 with a heated cabin.

It can accommodate up to 6 guests per trip. The boat is 26’ and it is fitted with a single Suzuki engine that can reach top speeds of 36 kn. For your better fishing experience, Garmin fishfinding equipment is available, and you can keep your catch in the onboard livewell.

This charter specializes in Lake Erie tours and depending on how the fish lead you, the boat might be cruising from Michigan to Ohio waters. You’ll be targeting the mouth-watering Walleye, so you might stock up your fridge with some tasty fish. You are going to use trolling to go after your fish, while jigging is also an option during springtime.

You don’t have to bring your fishing equipment and lures, as the crew will provide you with everything. However, the charter doesn’t cover the Michigan or Ohio fishing license. Depending on the weather, the captain will contact you in advance regarding this. If you get lucky you can keep your catch, or you can release it. Families with children are welcome.

Experience the magnificence of Lake Erie and get yourself the chance to fill your fridge with some delicious Walleye. Book a trip with Ratchetjaw Charters.

Been fishing sense I was old enough to walk. My dad ran a charter boat when I was young on Lake Erie and Lake Michigan till we moved down south. I fished crappie tournaments all over the Southeast. I enjoy being on the water and taking people fishing. The smile that is on peoples face when they’re catching fish is what made me want to get into chartering especially when that smile is on a kids face.
