Mega Bites Charters

Mega Bites Charters provides light tackle fishing in Lake Erie. They are run and operated by Captain Tony, one of the best specialists in the area. Mega Bites Charters will make sure you spend some quality time with your fishing pole on the waters of one of the most beautiful lakes of the continent.

You will be sailing aboard a spacious 30-foot Baha Cruisers boat, powered by a 350HP GM 7.4L engine. The vessel’s navigational electronics will ensure you have a quality experience on the water. What is more, there is a bed and a toilet on board, as well as an anchoring system and an ice-box for your maximum comfort.

Docks are maintained in the Port Clinton area in the spring, and Vermilion, Ohio the rest of the season. Millions of fish, especially Walleye, migrate east of the Lake Erie Islands into the deep waters off Vermilion during the summer so a move makes sense. Mega Bites Charters specializes in light tackle fishing for Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Yellow Perch, and Catfish. Trips vary from four hours weekdays to six and seven hours on weekends.

Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. You may want to bring your own snacks and drinks. Please, keep in mind that Mega Bites Charters has No Alcohol policy on their charters, so any alcoholic beverage stronger than beers is forbidden aboard. 

With a simple objection of keeping the action going all day long, Mega Bites Charters will make sure to give you some lifetime memories!

    Yellow Perch is a Lake Erie fall fishing favorite. They are fun to catch and are quite tasty to eat. Each fisherman is permitted to keep 30 perch. The method to catch perch is simple and easy. First the captain locates a school of them and anchors. Then special weighted perch rigs are baited with minnows and dropped to the bottom to await a strike. This style of fishing is great for beginners but don't be fooled. Old timers love to fish for perch, too. All gear and minnows are provided for you.

I've been fishing on Lake Erie since childhood. I earned my captain's license in 1983 when I was working full time as a news journalist. I continued working and fishing on the side until I retired in 2000. That's when I started chartering full time.

Captain Tony did a real nice job on our trip.  The boat was large enough for 4 guests to be able to keep some spacing. ...
