Free Spirit Charters L.L.C.

Free Spirit Charters offers specialist trips fishing the beautiful Lake Erie for its two top species: Walleye and Perch. Whether you’re a family group looking to enjoy the lake and learn how to catch big fish, or a single seasoned angler after your personal best, you won’t find a better boat to do it on.

Capt Mike owns and operates a 31’ Tiara cruiser. The boat has masses of deck space, with a large convertible top which gives plenty of shade from the summer sun. The boat also has an enclosed head for extra comfort and a bed to rest in after long fights up on deck. You may need it!

When it comes to the fishing, you will have everything you need to land a winner. Quality Lowrance electronics scan the depths and let you pinpoint the best spots to fish. Planer boards and dipsey divers to let you troll at any depth, and quality light tackle will take the strain of even the lake’s biggest Walleye.

You will find a trip to suit anyone with Free Spirit Charters. There are options to suit your schedule, group size, and the amount of time you want to spend on the water. You can also choose whether you want to focus on Walleye or Perch. Bycatch species you may encounter are Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, and Rainbow Trout.

At the end of your trip, all your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you, ready to enjoy as you discuss the day’s fishing. Sound like the perfect lake fishing trip? That’s because it is! So climb aboard and have a great day out on Lake Erie.
