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 fisherman how to catch fish and have a relaxing charter experience.

About the Captain

Jerod Smith
Lakeside Marblehead, Ohio, United States
Member since February 2017
I started fishing as a kid in rivers and ponds then transitioned into lake fishing. I started fishing Lake Erie when I became a firefighter for the city of Huron. The transition from Bass to Walleye was a pretty easy one after a few friends showed me some things. I couldn't get enough time on the Lake so I decided to make it a career. I am still a full-time Firefighter/Paramedic and run the charter operation on my days off. I enjoy fishing as much as possible and can accommodate up to 6 on the boat, we specialize in fishing with families and new fishermen as well as seasoned pro's.
