Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Charter Boat:

Lake Erie is one of the best Walleye lakes in Ontario for numbers and size and we are located at the west-end of the lake, which is the best and most productive area of Lake Erie. You would have to drive 14 hours north to find Walleye fishing like this.

Your day of Walleye fishing can be launched from either Colchester Harbour & Wheatley Harbour. Both locations produce outstanding Walleye fishing. It's really a question of convenience for our customers but if we know one area is producing more at that time of year we will suggest changing ports. There is also a time factor. Selecting a launching area closer to where the schools of Walleyes are means more time fishing and less time traveling.

Walleyes in Lake Erie are located around suspend schools of baitfish so all of the Walleye fishing will be open-water trolling. Generally they are around 30 to 35 feed deep but can come shallower on overcast days or in the spring when the water is colder. When the Walleyes are shallow we use planer boards or free trolling but 90% of the time they are down where the baitfish are. In this case we will put a couple of lines down on downriggers and have the baits just under the bait-fish, which is one of the areas Walleye congregate because it's easy striking distance at any unlucky minnow that ventures too far from the school. We also free-line with Dipsy Divers and Jet Divers to run lures beside the baitfish and just above the baitfish. Sometimes we use inline weights depending on the wind. The Walleyes will be found all around the school of baitfish. We use a variety of lures such as Bombers, Crawler Harnesses, Erie Dearies and spoons. Once we know what they are hitting best that day, we can switch the other lines.

Walleyes in Lake Erie are most common around the 3-pound range. The majority will be that size. Usually we pick up a couple in the 4 to 6-pound range. Lake Erie is known for Monster-size Walleyes and occasionally a really big Walleye in the 10 to 15-pound range gets caught. The big Walleyes are down there and your lure goes right close to them but the smaller Walleyes are faster and more aggressive during the day and go after your lure first. Catching a big one comes down to spending lots of time fishing and eventually a big Trophy Walleye will hit. We find the bigger Walleyes get caught first thing in the morning or in the evening near the end of the day.

Rainbow Trout are found at the same depth as the Walleyes and around the same schools and if the trout are biting well, you may find that you will catch just as many trout as Walleyes while out Walleye fishing.

We keep the Walleyes fresh in a live well and then clean them for you when we get back to port. Spending a day out on the open water, catching lots of fish and then coming home and having a feast of fresh Walleye is a great day in anyone's book.

Our boat is a 24-foot Trophy Bayliner. It's fast and comfortable and has a washroom on board. We have equipped the boat with state-of-the-art electronics and the best fishing equipment.
