All that is needed to make a reservation is a $100.00 deposit for each fishing day. This will confirm your prime fishing date with Badman Charters. If you need lodging it can be reserved at one of Lake Erie's full housekeeping accommodations with a $40.00 deposit for each night lodging, or we'll send you information so you can find your own.

Remember, multi-day packages are offered to help makes the decision making process alot easier. They are set up to make prime time seasonal bookings more trouble free and relaxing. Based on a group of six, the package rates are more affordable then if your charter trip was booked day by day and you had to find your own lodging. If extended lodging is necessary to make your trip more comfortable, simply add an extra $25 per night for each person.

Good Fishing,
Captain Joseph Holly

Additional information:

Since I own one boat and run one fishing charter per day, you know I will be your captain and more:

  • This means you will get a full day on Lake Erie and you'll experience both the morning and afternoon bites,

  • You will not be charged extra for gas if the trip goes a set distance,  You will never be surprised with additional hidden costs,

The Badman will go wherever the fish are. It could be west to the Michigan line, east into the central basin by Avon point and north into Canadian waters.

Call me anytime and use (800) 266-2520. In doing so:

  • This allows me to work closely with you before your group arrives, as well as when your already here, 
  • I talk to you a couple days before the trip to discuss any weather problems,
  • The day you arrive for your trip, I discuss fishing locations with you, how we did that day, and purchasing of fishing licenses.
  • This is important because we might fish Canadian waters,:
  • In this case, we go to Pelee Island in Ontario waters to purchase licenses,
  • Keep in mind that we can adjust your start time for your day's trips. We can begin later or earlier to adjust for arrival or departure schedules to fit your needs,
  • If we finish early, we'll fish for Smallmouth Bass or other species!
