Old Lakeshore Charters – 21'

Welcome to Old Lakeshore Charters! A fishing adventure with experienced Captain Jerod Smith awaits you at Lake Erie - one of the best freshwater fishing spots in the country. Whether it is freshwater species like Walleye and Perch you’re hoping to catch, or you’re after one of America’s favorite sport fish – Bass – hop on!

You’ll be fishing on a 21’ Starcraft freshly restored in 2020, with a Johnson engine and speed of 90 hp. It’s an open boat, so you can have plenty of space to move around as the fish bite. The boat can accommodate up to 4 people, so if you’re want to have a personal touch of a private fishing charter reserved for your group setting, look no further.

Whether you’re just getting started or you’ve already got a lot of experience, Old Lakeshore Carters have you covered: casting, trolling or jigging. Pick your preference and Capt. Jerod will make sure you have an eventful and daring day out on the water. He’s been fishing all his life and loves spending every second of his free time at Lake Erie, so with him you’ll get to discover the best spots for going after Walley and Perch, along with some experienced tips and tricks.

If you want a real sport adventure, try our Bass fishing option in the West or East Harbor. Capt. Jerod will help you capture a real summer bass fishing day out on the lake and equip you with high-quality lures and pro secrets for catching that giant mouth.

You want to be jigging the bottom of the lake for Perch or you’re less about comfort and more about the thrill of going after Bass and being having fun fishing the way you want? The choice is yours. Capt. Jerod will work hard to accommodate you and offer advice and help no matter the age or skill level. All you need to do is get a valid fishing license for the best saltwater experience to start!
