Lake Erie charters

Badman Charters is a dedicated Lake Erie Charter Service


It doesn't matter if you're an experienced angler, first timer to Lake Erie or a novice and wanting to catch your first walleye. Badman Charters will take the time to show what it takes to hook and land walleye!    

Remember, you shouldn't trip shouldn't always restrict your trip to just Ohio waters!   Fish with Badman Charters and you'll see that it's possible to fish both Ontario and Ohio waters on any of your Lake Erie fishing trips There are 4 distinct advantages to fishing Pelee and Ontario waters:

  1. This is to your advantage giving you "Greater Angler Success", which means more fish opportunities!
  2. On Lake Erie charters in Ontario waters around Pelee Island, anglers can still use two rods!
  3. As the summer leads into fall, when it's tough in Ohio, some of the best fishing can be found across the border on Lake Erie!  
  4. Pelee Island means more fishing opportunities for walleyes, perch, and smallmouth bass!

It's a 6-walleye limit all season long!  Trips will start in April, beginning with the jig bite and go into October!


NOTICE:    Fuel prices are increasing at such a rapid rate.   You will be advised of any rate increases.

With walleye being the primary species, anglers have the choice to fish for any species and use any method when on your Lake Erie fishing trip. Whether it's trolling, jigging or drifting for walleyes. Many fishing charters will begin with one method, but end with another if fishing is slow.  Location for each day charter, whether it's Lake Erie waters of Ohio or Ontario, will be discussed and recommendations will be offered for each charter.
