“Manatau Charters” invites you on the fishing trip of a lifetime on the Pennsylvania side of Lake Erie, one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the US! The charter is operated by Captain Jim Pettys, who was born and raised in Erie and has fished the lake for over 5 decades. He knows the best spots to find your targets and has perfected the art of catching them!
Hop aboard his 24’ Trophy walkaround boat, powered by a 250 HP Mercruiser engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This speedy beauty will take you to the best spots with the help of top-notch GPS and Fishfinder. She also features a toilet, bed, and kitchen for maximum comfort on board.
You’ll target some of the most sought-after freshwater fish in Lake Erie’s blue waters. From June to September, its all way about hooking into the ever-elusive Walleye. May through September will see you going after Perch, as well as Smallmouth Bass. And the fall? It’s reserved for Steelhead, of course!
All of the fishing gear you need for a productive day is already on board and at the end of the trip, Capt. Jim is happy to clean and fillet your catch. Bring along any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy and, most importantly, don’t forget to pick up a fishing license beforehand!
Experience the best of what Lake Erie has to offer with Manatau Charters!
