Lake Erie Fishing Charters
Lake Erie Fishing is booming for walleyes, perhaps the best tasting freshwater fish. The dull-eyed walleye domination is in a population explosion that is expected to grow for the next several years.
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, perch, and smallmouth charters in the western basin of Lake Erie.
Captain John will use his thirty-one years of fishing charter experience to guide you to the hot spots. Call or text Captain John at 419-345-3948 to book your 2022 fishing charter of choice.
Recent Walleye Hatches
The walleye boom has started. Walleye trawl surveys in the western basin of Lake Erie have documented enormous walleye hatches in 2015 and 2018, 2019, 2020, and now 2021. Let’s go fishing guys.
It is becoming quite clear that the elevated water on Lake Erie is the most significant factor in the booming walleye production.
The combined walleye trawl survey results from Ohio and Canada show that the 2021 walleye hatch was the highest ever recorded in Lake Erie’s western basin. The 2018, 2019, 2020, walleye hatches are all above average hatches for Lake Erie. This sets up Lake Erie for some great walleye fishing for several years to come.
The walleye estimates for the 2022 walleye season is at a whopping 93 million walleyes that are two years old.
Consistent walleye fishing success in the western basin of Lake Erie is dependent on having good numbers of young fish in the system, e now and in the foreseeable future. Book your next walleye charter at Lake Erie Walleye Charters with Captain John.
Anglers will mostly encounter walleyes ranging from 17 to 25 inches from the 2014- and 2015-year classes. A large number of walleyes from the 2018-year class will be 17- inches or more. Last fall during perch season we were catching small walleyes that measured six inches from this year’s hatch.
