Resuming fishing Canadian waters on Lake Erie around Pelee Island for smallmouth bass and walleye charters

Finally Badman Charters will be fishing Canadian waters all throughout the 2023 fishing season.   It recently re-opened allowing anglers opportunities at some prime smallmouth bass fishing and superb mid-summer to fall walleye action.  Angler responsibility would be having a Canadian fishing license, which can be purchased on-line very easily.

Pelee Island is unique because it has large areas of shallow water reefs, with deeper water just off the edge.  As the summer progresives with warmer water temps, larger walleyes can still be targeted a few miles off the island in either direction.  It's not un-commen for larger walleyes to be found in deeper Canadian waters when the Ohio walleyes get sluggish and somewhat tougher to catch.  Please make note of that in any emails, messages, or phone calls when inquiring.

"2022 was an outstanding year for walleye on Lake Erie.  Record or near hatches during the previous six spawning periods means recruitment is strong.  This means nothing but some of the best walleye fishing anywhere else in the great lakes or the world"

On all Lake Erie walleye charters

your group can pick which method to use for walleyes.   

Fish on The Badman and you'll learn that this charter service isn't one-dimensional; we use every trick in the trade to get you fish.  Better yet, you'll fish the preferred or sometimes the best method for that day! This simply means you have choices for taking walleyes used on your charter.

All trips include ice and bait, lures, rods for drifting or trolling are also included with the trip. Start times can be adjusted easily.  The normal time for The Badman to leave the dock is 6:30am. For those wanting to arrive later that morning, different times just need to be discussed.
When booking your trip, this is what Badman Charters can do for you before, during and at the
