Eyepopper Fishing Charters offers anglers a first-class Great Lakes fishing experience on lakes Erie and Ontario. Captain Dennis Viers is a retired school teacher and past bait and tackle shop owner with over 30 years of fishing experience and charter operation on Erie and Ontario. He welcomes families, children, business clients, and friend groups, to join him on the Eyepopper and create a fish story of a lifetime!
The vessel you’ll be fishing from is a 27’ Sportcraft boat, powered by a 310 HP Chevrolet/MerCruiser engine. Equipped with state of the art electronics such as dual radio, GPS system with plotter and autopilot features, and a fish finder – she has all the equipment you could possibly need for a productive day on the water. On board, you’ll also find a private toilet, and plenty of room for up to 6 anglers to fish comfortably at the same time.
All fishing tackle is also top-notch, and is kept in first-class condition. You’ll be equipped with world-class JVI, Planer Board, and Dipsy Diver rods, and Diawa reels. You’ll also have access to a variety of bait such as nightcrawlers, artificial lures, and artificial jigs.
All trips last until the group catches their daily limit, or until the full 8 hours pass. Depending on the day a group may only take 2,5 hours to fully load up on fish. Other times it may take the whole day. According to regulations, customers can keep 5 Smallmouth Bass per person, per day, and 6 Walleye per person, per day.
The only thing you should pack is a small cooler with drinks and snacks. Beer is also allowed, however, no glass bottles. If you so chose, the captain can customize your fishing trip to include additional services like lodging, on board food, fish cleaning, and mounting.
All guests over the age of 16 will also need to purchase a fishing license. The easiest place to do this is on ODNR online.
