Fishhound Charters invites you on a Lake Erie fishing adventure out of Lakeside-Marblehead, Ohio. The beautiful and bustling village of Marblehead is located at the tip of Lakeside township, which makes for easy access to the best fishing grounds around. Your guide, Steve Rumer, has fished the local waters for over 40 years and is as excited now as he was when he first started.
Fishing opportunities on Lake Erie are extraordinary from March through mid-November. Walleye is a major fish superstar that draws anglers from all over the world to this region. In the early season, you can use crankbaits, spoons, or spinners, and in the Fall, jigging with spoons in deep water is very productive. Walleye is a fish very sensitive to light, so you can target them in the early morning or evening in shallow water.
Other popular species on Lake Erie include Smallmouth Bass and Perch. Bass is only targeted on full day trips, whereas Perch can be hooked on half and full days. If you want to fish for Smallmouth Bass using live baits, just let Steve know so he can purchase the bait for you prior to the trip and at a discounted rate.
Fishhound Charters operates a 27’ Sportcraft performance fishing boat originally built in 1989 and restored in 2014. Powered by a 350 HP Mercruiser engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots, the boat can get you from one spot to the next in a heartbeat. The vessel features a VHF radio which Steve uses to stay in touch with other captains on their own VHF channel. This way they are always in the know of where the fish have been spotted.
The boat also has a GPS and a fishfinder, as well as a livebait tank, and a toilet, which is a huge plus if you’re bringing the whole family out. Up to five children over the age of seven are welcome, and life jackets will be provided for them.
Fishhound Charters will provide Okuma trolling rods, St Croix drifting rods, Ugly Stick rods for Perch fishing, Penn reels, and lures. Fish cleaning is available, too.
