Cast-A-Way Fishing Charters

Cast-A-Way Fishing Charters specializes in family-friendly adventures in Lake Erie. If you are looking for a productive day on the water, you have found the right place.

Explore the finest angling opportunities this Great Lake has to offer. Your Captain - Michael Lange - has been mastering the cast for over three decades now. His trips are always educational - Capt. Michael will teach you and your party how to drift fish and troll for Walleye. After just one trip with Cast-A-Way Fishing Charters, you will come back to shore with a richer knowledge!

Capt. Michael operates a 21 ft Ranger 621, with room for up to 4 guests on board. You can enjoy your day on the lake while sitting under a hardtop (out of the sun) or in the open air in the back of the boat. It comes powered by a 300 HP Mercury engines to get you to the hotspots quickly and efficiently. The boat’s GPS and fishfinder will build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding, while its icebox will make sure your catch is fresh during the day.

Enjoy the thrill of catching a healthy dose of Walleye and target Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Musky. All the necessary rods and reels by Ugly Stiks and Okuma will be available on board along with lures. You will need to purchase a valid Michigan fishing license and bring your choice of food and drinks.
