Lake Erie Fishing Charters
Lake Erie Fishing is booming for walleyes, perhaps the best-tasting freshwater fish you can eat. The dull-eyed walleye domination is in a population explosion expected to grow to record numbers.
Lake Erie fishing charters have never been more exciting than when you join Captain John for a day of walleye fishing on Lake Erie. We specialize in walleye and perch charters in the western basin of Lake Erie.
Captain John will use his thirty-plus years of fishing charter experience to guide you to the hot spots. Call or text Captain John at 419-345-3948 to book your 2023 fishing charter.
Recent Walleye Hatches
The walleye boom has started. Walleye trawl surveys in the western basin of Lake Erie documented enormous walleye hatches in 2015, 2018, 2019, and 2020. Also, the fifth largest hatch in 2021 and the 2022 hatch is the ninth largest in the 35 years of keeping records. Let’s go walleye fishing in 2023.
The walleye estimates for the 2023 walleye season are at a whopping 151 million walleyes.
Consistent walleye fishing success in the western basin of Lake Erie depends on having good numbers of young fish in the system, now and in the foreseeable future. Book your next walleye charter at Lake Erie Walleye Charters with Captain John.
Anglers will mostly encounter walleyes from 17 to 25 inches from the 2014 and 2015-year classes. Many walleyes from the 2018-year class will be 17 plus- inches. Last fall, during perch season, we were catching small walleyes that measured six inches from this year’s hatch.
New this year: Ohio’s annual fishing licenses are now valid 365 days from the date of purchase, and you can buy multiple other licenses. Now. http://www.wildohio.gov
