Fishing charters in Canadian waters on Lake Erie around Pelee Island for smallmouth bass and walleye charters
For a second season, Badman Charters will be fishing Canadian waters, when offered, throughout the 2024 fishing season. Re-opening last season, Badman Charters will give all anglers opportunities at some prime charter fishing for smallmouth bass and superb mid-summer in to fall walleye action.
It's best explained, Pelee Island is unique because of its large areas of shallow water reefs, with deeper water just off the edge. As the summer progresses with warmer water temps, walleyes can still be targeted nearby as well as on the shallow reefs, when fishing the structure that the island offers.
It's very common for larger walleyes to be found in deeper Canadian waters when the Ohio walleyes get sluggish and somewhat tougher to catch. Angler's responsibility would be to have a Canadian fishing license, which can be purchased online very easily. Please make note of that in any emails, messages, or phone calls when inquiring.
"2024 will be an outstanding year for walleye on Lake Erie. Having record or near hatches during the previous six spawning periods means recruitment is strong. This will reward anglers with some of the best walleye fishing anywhere else in the great lakes or the world"
On all Lake Erie charters,
your group has multiple methods to use when chasing 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 are available for individual use if needed on the trip. Start times can be adjusted easily. The normal time for The Badman to leave the dock is between 6 and 6:30am. For those wanting to arrive later that morning, different times just need to be discussed.
