Lake Erie Fishing Charters for Walleye, Smallmouth and Perch
Lake Ontario Salmon Charters
Canadian border crossings
The 2020 fishing season finished with no trips crossing the border. This was due to Covid virus affecting millions of Americans.
So far this year the ban is extended monthly without any hint that it might be lifted soon. If for some reason it is lifted and we can fish Ontario waters, the update will be posted on the Badman Charters facebook page.
Currently I'm not booking any Canadian Smallmouth or Walleye trips. If the ban is lifted this year, any Lake Erie charters can be changed to fish Ontario waters.
Reminder to non-residents
Remember, all non-residents that
are coming to Lake Erie to fish on a charter before May 1, must have a Non-resident sportfishing permit. These can be obtained on line or at any DNR license outlet in the area. Information on cost and where to purchase the permits, can be found at the Charter Fishing License Information page
We leave the dock at 6:30am for 10 hours of fishing. Fish for your choice of the best sport fish that swims in Lake Erie. We can fish both Ohio and Ontario waters.
>>Booking for 2021 already
Now is the time to try and secure
that good date for Lake Erie walleye, smallmouth, perch or Lake Ontario salmon and steelhead. If you were planning on coming back in 2021 or maybe you forgot to mentioned rebooking, now's the time.

There's still time to target the best fighting fish that swims in Lake Erie. Create an excellent adventure for anglers of all ages on one of many Lake Erie fishing charters.

Lake Erie fishing with Badman Charters!
Badman charters has always tried to increase your charter experience by always integrating clients into the trolling or drifting program. The charter is as much of a learning experience by explaning the trolling and drifting fundamentals, as it is catching limts.
Lake Erie walleye charters are multi-presentation
You'll find that Badman Charters fishing charters aren't just 'one' dimensional, you'll fish your preferred or maybe the best method for that day! This simply means you have choices for taking walleyes used on your charter.
You'll be busy rather then sitting!
My policy has always been on all of the Lake Erie fishing charters, especially when trolling, to teach and have my charters be more of a hands-on trolling experience as much as possible, this includes netting fish, setting lines.
Book a fishing trip. Fish the Walleye Capital of the World!!
Seek out the aptly named, King Salmon!!
Seek out the aptly named, King Salmon!!
With walleye being the primary species for Lake Erie anglers, don't forget you can pick any of the two other favorites, Smallmouth bass and yellow perch, for any of your fishing charters. If Lake Erie isn't your choice, try King salmon or steelhead on a Lake Ontario salmon charter. You'll soon find out why the Chinook salmon is title 'King". Lot's of fun and a real challenge for anglers.
