Top Fishing Charters in Lakeshore


If you’re looking for a place where you can cast your line in peace, away from the crowds, you’ll probably like Lakeshore in Ontario, Canada. Nestled right in between three very fishable bodies of water – Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie, and Detroit River – the Lakeshore fishing scene has a lot to offer to a passionate angler.
 
With two lakes and one river, it’s safe to say that you’ve got your angling choices wide open. Spend your spring fishing the Detroit River for Whitefish, Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, and more. Come summer, hit Lake Erie for big Musky and Walleye, or head to Lake St. Clair for a variety of freshwater species.
 
Anglers who don’t mind the Canadian cold can come to Lakeshore in the winter for some ice fishing and enjoy the top-notch bite of Pike, Walleye, and Yellow Perch. Whatever your angling appetite, you’ll have a good time in this quaint little town.
 
Coming to Lakeshore for the first time? It’s strongly recommended to find a charter that can take you to the fish. Local guides have plenty of experience fishing in the area, and they usually have a variety of trips on offer. If there’s a particular species you’d like to target (Musky, Walleye, Bass), some guides offer specialized excursions where you’ll target only the fish of your choice.
 

Rules & Regulations

Anglers who want to get a taste of Lakeshore fishing action need to be informed about Ontario fishing regulations and daily limits. Canadian and US citizens need both an Outdoors Card and a valid fishing licence before they start fishing.
 
You can choose between a Conservation and Sport licence. If you want to fish for one day only, you don’t need an Outdoors Card, but you will need a special one-day sport licence.

January

You better believe that it can get cold in Lakeshore in January. If the temperatures are cold enough, you could enjoy some ice fishing. If that’s not really your thing, stay warm and wait for sunnier days.

February

The weather is still far from those fishing-perfect temperatures, but maybe towards the end of the month, you can start preparing and fixing up your gear. It doesn’t hurt to get prepared for the upcoming spring.

March

We’re still not out of the woods, but there are more and more pleasant days in the forecast. If you can’t wait to start fishing, head to the Detroit River in the second half of the month, and you could hook some nice Walleye.

April

Spring is in town and as the waters warm up, Smallmouth Bass come out to play in the lakes. Hit the water on a clear sunny day and see how many Bass you can catch. Remember to bring rain gear!

May

May usually signifies the beginning of the peak fishing seasons on the lakes, and now is the time to get out and cast your line for Musky, Walleye, Bass, Crappie, and more. Fishing on the Detroit River is strong.

June

This is THE month for top-notch fishing action! The weather has somewhat stabilized, which means that the waters of Lake Erie are calm and teeming with Walleye, Pike, and Musky. Fish on!

July

Whichever lake you pick for your fishing endeavors in July, you’re going to have a blast! Lake St. Clair offers excellent freshwater action for Walleye, Musky, Bluegill, and even Rainbow Trout.

August

Whatever your prey of choice, chances are you’ll have a super productive day on Lake Erie. Whether it’s Perch, Walleye, Trout, or Musky you’re after, you’re in for a treat.

September

The coming of fall announces more unpredictable weather patterns, which is what can keep anglers off the water. However, fishing is still going strong, so don’t let a bit of rain get in the way of your Walleye dinner.

October

Some Lakeshore fishing charters will only be running trips by the end of the month, so if you want to get your fill of fishing with a professional guide, now is the time to book your dates. Pike, Musky, Walleye, and Bass are all out there for the taking.

November

We’re starting to get a taste of Canadian winter in November, so fishing is slowing down. If you get the chance, cast your line from the shore of the lake and see if you can hook some Perch, Pike, or Walleye.

December

With the holidays come freezing temperatures, so you’ve got two options – either dust off your ice fishing gear (if the ice on the lakes is thick enough) or take a fishing break over the winter. Whatever your choice, enjoy this joyful time of year.
