Hooked Up Sportfishing – Monroe

Discover the greatness of Lake Erie with Hooked Up Sportfishing. Based out of Monroe, MI, you’ll have access to the productive reefs and deeper waters just beyond as you target a range of thrilling and delicious fish. Captain William Rea is a native to the area and has fished these waters his whole life. He knows just what makes a good fishing trip, and can’t wait to show you the sweets spots.

Depending on the season, you’ll explore some different fishing grounds. All year long, you’ll have the chance to go after Walleye as you troll to entice their bite. While you can take a more hands-on approach in Spring as you jig to lure them in. They’ll congregate in big crowds as they spawn, so there’ll be no shortage of tough-finding creatures at the end of your line.

From July through October, you’ll also have the chance to go after delicious Yellow Perch. These small creatures will fit right in your pan, and you’ll get the chance to fish with live bait to trick these creatures. Every trip has the same aim: to get you reeling in your daily limit.

In order to tackle these incredible beasts, you’ll need a sturdy boat. The 20’ Pro-Line dual console is just that. Designed to cut across the water tops, you’ll speed off to the sweet spots thanks to the 150 HP Mercury engine. There’s plenty of space for up to 2 guests, but a third could be allowed in certain circumstances, just ask your captain.

With Capt. William’s experience, everyone is welcome aboard to learn about Lake Erie’s incredible fishing. Children over 6 are welcome, but please make sure that they’ll be able to put up with so many hours on the boat.

All the gear and lures needed for a productive day on the water awaits you on board. If you also want to have your catch cleaned, it’s $1.50 per Walleye and $3.00 per Salmon. Tipping 15% - 20% for staff is customary. All you need to do is get a fishing license, bring some snacks and drinks aboard, and get ready for an incredible day out with Hooked Up Sportfishing.

Member since Febrero 2019
An avid angler since he was a child, Captain William has been on boats his whole life. Growing up in Michigan, he spent every second possible out on the Great Lakes and has worked hard to get where he is today – doing what he loves doing for a living. At the age of 13, he became the youngest member of the Association, despite being too young to have a valid ID, before moving on to being a first mate on several boats. He's been running his own charters since 2000 and still never tires of getting out on the water.
