If you’re looking for an authentic fishing experience on the northern shores of Lake Erie, Port Clinton fishing charters will have a lot to offer you. This city is known for its outstanding bite, and here, fishing is a way of life.

In Port Clinton, there’s no catch more beloved and plentiful than the mighty Walleye. From spring to fall, hundreds of fishermen come here, ready to hook into the biggest Walleye of their lives. Their expectations are justified. These hard-fighting species can grow to weigh anywhere from 10–40 pounds and they’re a real challenge to catch.

But it’s not just the clear-eyed Walleye that gets all the attention on Port Clinton fishing charters. Jumbo Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass are also on the menu, in case you want a variety of fish fillets in your cooler. If you’d like something more exotic, there are guides that go after Catfish, Northern Pike, and Rainbow Trout. If in doubt, try a bit of everything.

There’s a huge variety of trips you can choose from, depending on who you’re coming with and your angling ambitions. You can spend a couple of hours in the shallower parts of the lake and have plenty of fish for dinner, or head off into the offshore waters for a lunker Walleye hunt. Ice fishing can also be good, as long as you’re going out with an experienced guide.

Fisherman’s Wharf, Riverside Marina, and West Lakeshore Drive are just a few of the most popular departure points for Port Clinton fishing charters.

Reglas & Regulaciones

The most important thing to remember is to bring your Ohio fishing license on your trip. Wading, spearfishing, or having fishing equipment near Nursery Waters isn’t allowed. Your captain will let you know how much fish you can keep.

Enero

If the lake is frozen solid, try your luck with ice fishing. If it’s not, hop on a boat and follow the southern wind – you might find some Perch. When the winter is warm, the annual spawning Walleye run can come early, so you never know.

Febrero

It’s only safe to go out if the ice is still strong in the western basin, otherwise stay patient just a bit longer. The beginning of the Walleye season is a-coming, as are the possible trophy catches, so start preparing your tackle.

Marzo

Finally, the weather is warmer and Walleye come closer to shore, getting ready to spawn. Jig or troll with planer boards and stick baits for large female Walleye. They’re moving into the shallow waters, and so should you!

Abril

This month is all about prime Walleye fishing. The western basin reefs are the place to be in April. Book a Port Clinton fishing charter and go jigging or trolling for Walleye. You can also find more than decent Rainbow Trout swimming around in the cool waters.

Mayo

The western basin holds lots of big Walleye. They can be taken by trolling crankbaits and spoons. Fish near and over the reefs or outside the shelf edge, and you’ll find a growing population of Yellow Perch and Rainbows are out there as well.

Junio

Drift fishing is in its prime! Walleye are snapping left and right in the western basin. If you want your fill of Yellow Perch, target them with spreaders and shiners. The fishing is hot at the beginning of summer, and it’s only getting better from here.

Julio

Just about everything is biting in Lake Erie! Head out to the shallow reefs for a productive day – this is where your prey congregates. We’re talking Walleye in the hundreds! Perch can be pretty aggressive, and let’s not forget about the excellent Smallmouth Bass fishing.

Agosto

Turn an average of 30 Smallmouth Bass? Easy! The days are growing shorter and the waters cool down. Walleye, Bass, and Perch are in good numbers and big enough to keep in the dozens. Deepwater reefs are the best place to find them.

Septiembre

The prime areas on the shallow reefs close to deep water can easily give you your limit of catches. Troll or drift fish for Walleye. And don’t forget about Yellow Perch and Bass – there are some big specimens swimming around in search of their next meal.

Octubre

It’s getting colder on the water, but the western basin still holds good numbers of Walleye. Cast spinners in the shallow waters or stay focused on your trolling efforts. Yellow Perch and Bass fishing is going strong, so make the most of it while you can.

Noviembre

By mid-November, the season is winding down, and Port Clinton charter boats are getting off the water. This is a great time to take some of your recent catches from the freezer and make a nice Perch dinner for your family.

Diciembre

The western basin is quiet and the fish are getting ready for Christmas. If the lake is frozen, book a trip with your favorite Port Clinton guide and go ice fishing. Why not try something new? Just remember to dress warmly. Layers are the key!

The size of the boat and the engine largely determines how fast and how far you can go during your time. We plan to come back in June next year, instead of July.

Mike actually asked us if we wanted to switch to Lorain. He thought the fishing was better over there and the catch would be larger. We did get into some larger fish there and caught our limit in 2-3 hours.

Had a great time with captian Frank. Our first day was awesome. The weather was great and captian Frank took us to a great spot. We hit our limit before noon with some nice size walleye. Our second day was a bust due to the weather, but captian Frank still took us out. It end up raining and was rough so we called it a day. We appreciate his dedication to our trip and would highly recommend him if your looking to charter a trip.

While strong north winds turned off the walleye closer in 22 miles out 16 year guide Captain Frank Sherry put us on the fish. After four hours out we landed our limit and couldn’t be more pleased with the size of walleye we caught on our first Lake Erie outing. The largest of which was 27”. Frank turned out to be a great teacher too sharing many of his fishing tips. Can’t recommend Captain Frank and South of Heaven guide service highly enough. We will definitely return. Thank you.

Captain Scott was great and clearly knowledgeable about the bay area fishing. Like most good things 6 hours flew past in what seemed like a couple. Already planning a second trip before he shuts down for the season. Our outing was slow According to Scott but we still had fun and took home plenty of fillets.

3 of us fished with Frank for 2 days, didn’t have the best weather wind wise. We had a good time catching walleyes the first day. The second day we tried for perch but the wind was too much and we didn’t do too well, but that was NOT due to a lack of effort on Captain Frank’s part. Frank was accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly. We had a great time the 2 days we fished, and will be back again

Capt John was excellent. We would happily choose Capt John for future trips. Even in August he was able to get us in the walleye zone even though many others were Striking out we still came home with 13lbs of walleye and 3lbs of yellow perch even though bite was slow. You can't get better than that. Book you JT Sport fishing Trip now!
