April kicks off the start of the Lake Erie charter fishing season and what better way to get started than pitching and cranking for Lake Erie walleye. The western basin of Lake Erie provides good catches of walleye for the drift and cast fisherman, although nowadays there seems to be more and more trolling. The traditional weight forward spinners and jigs tipped with live bait work well. Good size yellow perch are readily available. A great way to get rid of those winter blues.
May signals the start of smallmouth bass activity on Lake Erie as water temperatures warm into the 50’s. These bronzebacks are excellent fighters and can be casted or trolled for. Early walleye and perch activity continues to be good as the Lake Erie waters continue to warm. Ashtabula Ohio produces some trophy sized smallmouth ….we have had customers say that they have fished all over the states fior smallmouth and did best right in the Lake Erie waters of Ashtabula, Ohio
Junes warming waters help set up thermo clines which help concentrate fish offshore. Lake Erie’s central basin shows mixed catches of perch, smallmouth bass, and walleye. We love June in Ashtabula, Ohio ~ June is our best weather month we fish on Lake Erie!! Planer boards and minnow imitating plugs account for many mixed bags of fish. Pleasant weather and pleasing catches ~ Lake Erie and mother nature deliver the best of both worlds!
July provides consistent fishing on Lake Erie. Lake Erie’s central basin walleye activity is in full swing. Trophy walleyes over 8 pounds are quite common. Summer steelhead trout catches seem to keep getting better each year. If you have never had a 15+ pound steelhead trout on the tackle end of your line beware…….the action provided by these freshwater tarpon can only be described as awesome! Trolling trips eight plus miles offshore fishing with planer boards, dipsy divers, and wire line with deep diving stickbaits yield many quality catches.
August is a prime month on Lake Erie. Lake Erie’s central basin walleye fishing continues to be excellent. Offshore trolling trips over 10 miles are the norm, fishing with crawler harnesses, body baits and spoons rigged off dipsy divers, wire line and planer boards. During mid month perch begin to concentrate near shore. Women anglers…..visit the “Bring It On” and add your smiling picture here!
September perch fishing on Lake Erie gets into full swing. We continue to catch walleyes into October, though not as fast paced as the prime summer months, as they are on their migratory moves. We begin to see steelhead trout show up near shore! Whether you choose perch or walleye you should do well on your charter.
October fishing duplicates September’s as long as gale force winds do not force us off the water. Depending on their geographic location we can catch steelhead trout such as this beautiful fish as well as excellent charters for yellow perch. Depending on mother nature sometimes walleyes park themselves in front of our harbor and the fishing can be awesome. Ask the captain what’s currently happening on the lake. We try to fish as long as the weather allows us. Our marina officially closes October 15th and the boat is usually out of the water by the end of the month.
