Port Clinton OH, United States

’03’ Fishing Charters offers exciting trips on the Western Basin of Lake Erie. Departing from Port Clinton, Ohio, you will be guided by one of the best captains in the area. Jerry has decades of professional experience and is a patient angler. He knows the zone like the back of his hand and can put you on the fish with his eyes closed.

If you are intrigued, step aboard the ’03’, which is a 30-foot Aquasport vessel. She comes powered by twin 270 HP Crusader engines and is a well-maintained fishing machine. The ’03’ is clean (Captain Jerry makes sure she is scrubbed daily) and can comfortably take up to six anglers. She is rigged with top-notch navigational electronics, a toilet for your maximum comfort, and coolers for the catch and your snacks. The ’03’ is docked at Lake Front Marina and located conveniently right on the lake.

Lake Erie fishing charters with Captain Jerry is always a fun and productive experience. Jerry is a great teacher who uses his vast experience wisely. On your day out, you will be bottom fishing and drift fishing Lake Erie’s Western Basin for Yellow Perch and Walleye, the local superstar. Depending on the bite, the captain can take you fishing nearshore and offshore, as well as the reefs.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, and bait. You only need to purchase a fishing license prior to the trip and grab something to eat and drink.

Fish the “Walleye Capital of the world” with ’03’ Fishing Charters and make a great catch possible. Fishing is always better on your side of the lake!
