Fishing in Sandusky

A lot of people know Sandusky, Ohio for its beauty and famous Cedar Park amusement park, but for anglers, this town is a goldmine. Lake Erie and Sandusky Bay boast excellent fishing opportunities, and both locals and traveling fishermen know it well. On top of that, Sandusky, Ohio, fishing charters know the waters like the back of their hand and they’ll help you catch something good.

Walleye gets the most attention in Sandusky, which only makes sense, seeing that Lake Erie is one of the top destinations for this species on the planet. Come to the city in late spring and summer, and you’re in for an action-filled excursion with more Walleye than you can count. This freshwater gamefish grows to trophy sizes and is on everyone’s to-catch list.

Other species that deserve the spotlight are Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass – they live in the lake in huge numbers. Sandusky Bay has a strong Channel Catfish population, and there are guides who specialize in getting you on these whiskery fellas. You can set off to the Canadian waters in search of Rainbow Trout, too. Ice fishing is top-notch in the winter months.

Half days on the water are usually booked by families and beginners, while full day trips are open to everyone, especially seasoned anglers ready to wrestle with their next trophy fish. You can also find combo expeditions that will take you to deeper waters, closer to lunkers.

Sandusky, Ohio, fishing charters move out from many city marinas, including Docks of the Bay, Safe Harbor, and Deep Water Marina.  Pick your charter and get ready to have the time of your life.

Rules & Regulations

The most important thing to bring on your charter trip is a valid Ohio fishing license, your captain will provide everything else. If you plan on going to Canadian waters, make sure to bring your passport.

Sandusky Fishing Seasons

January

Low January temperatures create excellent ice fishing conditions, so if you’re waiting for the bite in the cold, you’ll love this time on the water. Yellow Perch are most active during this time, so you might have some delicious fish fillets for dinner.

February

The second month of the year is the period between good ice fishing conditions and the beginning of the new fishing season, so the bite varies depending on the day and the temperature. Perch and odd Walleye are the most common catches.

March

Everybody loves March because it marks the official beginning of the fishing season, not to mention the milder weather it brings. More and more Walleye come closer to shore, and Catfish in the bay are becoming more active.

April

The spring is in full swing, and so is the fishing in Sandusky! Walleye are getting ready for spawning and you better believe that Catfish are hungry and ready to attack your bait with abandon. The high season is just around the corner.

May

Yellow Perch join the fray in large numbers, so you get to pick what you’d like to target. You’ll find the mighty Walleye around underwater structures and in shallow waters, and there’s plenty of Channel Catfish for everyone in Sandusky Bay.

June

This is one of the hottest fishing months in the area and Sandusky, Ohio, fishing charters know it well! There’s more Walleye than you can catch, Perch fishing will keep you reeling them in, and Smallmouth Bass are ready to eat as well.

July

Local anglers claim that July is the best time of year to hit the waters of Lake Erie and target whatever your heart desires – Walleye, Perch, and Smallies are all there for the taking. For a change of pace, stay in the bay and go after big Catfish.

August

Late summer is the best time to visit Sandusky and enjoy its charm, not to mention its premier fishing. What can you hope to catch? Lunker Walleye, Jumbo Perch, and good numbers of Smallies are all fair game, so it’s up to your preferences.

September

If you haven’t had the time to get a taste of Sandusky fishing yet this year, stop by in September, while all the A-listers are biting and there’s still time to land something bragworthy. Remember to bring your raingear, the Lake Erie weather is notorious for its sudden changes.

October

It gets colder in October, but there’s still a good chance of tempting Walleye and Perch into biting, and Bass action is solid as well. Get some smelly bait and head to the bay – chances are, Channel Catfish will find your offering irresistible.

November

Most of the Sandusky fishing charters are out of the water by November 15 and days are getting colder. The ice isn’t setting yet, so your best bet is to do some casting from shore and get some last-minute Smallmouth Bass on the line.

December

You won’t see a lot of people on the lake in December, and the fish follow suit, hibernating in deep waters. If the temperatures stay low over a span of days, dust off your ice fishing gear, make sure that it’s safe, and let the winter fishing games begin.
