Lake Erie Perch Charters
Lake Erie fishing charters for walleye, yellow perch and smallmouth bass in both Ohio and Ontario waters of Lake Erie
Lake Erie Yellow Perch
Yellow Perch limit is 30 each day per angler!
Yellow perch bites very light and it may take a novice awhile to get the hang of it. Many days we get on a "hot" bite and fish go into the cooler as fast as you can, reel them in, re-bait and get your line back to the fish. So, if you are a novice or experienced angler and enjoy fishing for perch and wish to do it on a Badman perch charter, give me a call.
Throughout Lake Erie, yellow perch tend to be found near or on the lake bottom. We fish perch with minnows on spreaders or perch rigs. Varying the bait on or near the bottom and jigging up and down results in the best catches.
Lake Erie perch fishing is second to none, and what better way to enjoy a day on the great lakes than a Lake Erie perch charter. These tasty fish provide good charter and family fun. All bait and tackle is provided for your use.

Best Times to Perch Fish
Most people feel that perch fishing in the fall is the only time, and they couldn't be MORE wrong! Perch WILL bite, and CAN be caught, all year long! The bigger fish are caught in the spring and later into the fall months.
After the spring spawning period, the average size does drop, but can still average a respectable 8-10 inches during the warmer, summer months; limits are still pretty easy to fill.
An often overlooked perch time is in April through early May. Perch can be found close to structures, such as shorelines, reefs and islands getting ready to spawn. The size can oftentimes match fall fish.
Perch fishing is usually good all year long! Some days day limits are taken in 5 to 6 hrs. Average fish (8-10 inches) are very common, with most spring and late summer-fall thru fall catches, some fish showing up to 10-12 inches.
