Old Lakeshore Charters

Old Lakeshore Charters invites you for an amazing fishing adventure on Lake Erie, from Lakeside Marblehead in Ohio. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Jerod who has 25 years of fishing experience with 10 years fishing right here on Lake Erie. He welcomes families and children whom he loves to teach all about fishing and the local fishery.

You will go out on his 30-foot Sportcraft cuddy cabin boat, which is powered by a 330 HP Mercruiser engine. The boat is fast and stable on the chop and will get you to and from the productive grounds efficiently.

It contains all the safety and navigation equipment such as life jackets, a GPS with marked productive spots, and a fishfinder. The boat also features a cabin enclosure to provide you with a warm windbreak in the Fall months. There is a toilet on board which will prove a huge plus when you take the whole family out.

Old Lakeshore Charters will take you fishing for Lake Erie favorites such as Walleye, Perch, and Smallmouth Bass. You will cast for Walleye while drifting and fish for Yellow Perch while anchored. You can jig or cast for Smallmouth Bass.

Captain Jerod will happily spend time teaching new anglers how to catch fish and have a relaxing charter experience. He is a patient and reliable person who will make sure your trip is safe, fun, and exciting.

Now all you have to do is find an opening in the captain’s calendar, book a trip that best suits your needs and get ready for your next fishing adventure!
