Reel King Charters – 20’ Lund

The crew of Reel King Charters welcomes you aboard! They are hands-on fishing charter and do their best to help you teach different techniques used to make the trip successful. Here to guide and help you as much as needed from lure selection to netting. They will definitely take time for pictures and capture moments that last a lifetime!

You’ll be fishing on a 20’ boat named Hooker, which is part of Team Reel King. The boat is a Lund Tyee Grandsport Magnum, built for the Great Lakes. Powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, with a 9.9hp kicker and Minnkota Ulterra I-pilot. Onboard state of the art navigation and safety equipment will keep you on fish while safely enjoying the day.

Depart the dock and take a short ride out to the main Lake, during which the captain will give you a short safety briefing. Batten down the hatches and you’re off to the fishing grounds! Your main targets of the day are Yellow Perch, Walleye, and Smallmouth Bass.

Please bring a small cooler with your drinks and food and a big cooler to take your fish home (which can stay in your car). Sunscreen, clothing, and a valid Ohio fishing license (online sale with a screenshot is legal). Since this is a smoke and drug free vessel, feel free to bring an ecig, vape, etc. if you will need it.

After a successful day of fishing, you’re welcome to take your fish with you to clean at home or take them to the local cleaners (this option varies depending on return time of trip). The fish cleaners are a few miles down the road and offer free pick up at the dock (this varies by departure location and return time).

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I have been fishing my whole life. Started fishing with family on inland lakes in northern Indiana. This led to fishing Lake Michigan with my grandfather in my early teens. Then we moved the boat to Bass Haven Marina on Lake Erie. Spent the next decade casting for Walleye and eventually, taking the trolling skills learned from Lake Michigan and applied them to Lake Erie as the water cleaned up. I spent off the water time raising a family, farming, in management, maintenance, and eventually being self-employed. My family operates C & K Greenhouses in the spring, on our farm. This allows me the opportunity to charter full-time during the summer. Reel King Charters LLC. is a family business founded in 2018 by brothers Capt Doug and Capt Craig Rothgeb. I am excited to fulfill a childhood dream of being a professional fisherman that can share a lifetime of knowledge with both the new and experienced anglers on the boat.
