Weather is very unpredictable this time of year. Bring a mix of clothing and rain gear. Try night fishing off a pier if you aren't able to get out on the water. Catawba State Park and Lakeside dock are two good places to try.

Mike actually asked us if we wanted to switch to Lorain. He thought the fishing was better over there and the catch would be larger. We did get into some larger fish there and caught our limit in 2-3 hours.

Definitely book with Captain Scott for a great time catfishing - don't let the walleye snobs discourage you. This is where the real action is...lots of catching to go along with your fishing and a chance and some BIG fish. If you are into walleye, get a ride on the Miss Cindy or one of her sisters at Fisherman's wharf in Port Clinton...gotta bring your own gear and bait. Just stop at Fishing Buddies beforehand and they'll set you up - don't be afraid to ask if you are new to walleye. Very friendly there and happy to help.

I would like to recommend to take pictures if you haven't experience something like it because it's that great, and take family members because yall can create great memories and get some good laughs of things that happen.

Captain Mike asked if he could move the location to farther east before I arrived so that he could put us on more walleye. I said yes and was glad I did.

I would recommend using Erie Eyes with Brian and Kelly because all of their equipment and boat are first class and they show you just how to fish for your target fish, very helpful and courteous.

Went fishing with JT Sportfishing Charters on July 28, 2018
April and May may be the best for numbers of walleye, however, we caught 6 walleye & 1 perch on calm waters during 4:30 - 7:30 pm on July 28th while enjoying a beautiful evening.

This was my first time being in Port Clinton and it was a nice area for being on the water, whether you wanted to be in the water swimming or fishing it was a great time.

Be prepared for the heat. Make sure of your hotel accommodation in advance (Best Western in Port Clinton is clean and close to the marinas)

Book with Carla because she moved around frequently so we had the best chance to catch fish.

If you want to limit out you could try trolling but If just 1/4 of our fish were 1/4" longer, we would have limited our buy noon! We caught a couple of real nice ones too!! Really enjoyed our Day!
