FAQ's - Small Program Charters
What hours do we fish?
We fish from 6am to 2pm, dock to dock, or whenever we limit... which ever happens
What should we bring on our charter?
The list of suggestions is HERE
Can we fish for more than one species?
Yes and no. Depending on the time of year, walleye and steelhead can be caught
simultaneously in deep water, however perch charters require different styles
of fishing and locations on the lake and should be treated as a separate charter
Where is the boat located?
The dock and boat are located HERE
Is it customary to tip the mate?
Yes it is! The first mate works hard for you to operate the back of the boat,
set lines, net fish and help you and your guests have an enjoyable day. He will
also fillet your fish and prepare them for you to take home. How much? A
good baseline typically starts at 25 bucks per fisherman. Please reward
your mate accordingly.
What kind of license do I need?
All passengers 16 and older need a valid Pa fishing license with a Lake Erie
stamp. If you are targeting trout species, a trout stamp is required. You may
also use the combo Erie/Trout stamp. Purchase your license ahead of time.
Am I required to send a deposit?
Yes, your deposit assures that your date is reserved for you. A check for $100.00
can be sent HERE Policy: Deposits or paid in full
trips are non-refundable. If your trip is cancelled for any reason (dangerous
weather or poor fishing) as determined by the Captain, the trip must be rescheduled.
Deposits not used during a calendar year will be carried over to the following
year. The deposit can be used on any type of trip at any time. If you cancel
the trip on your own, you must give a 30 day notice or the deposit will be forfeited.
How should I pay for my charter?
We prefer CASH for the balance due at the conclusion of your day. No checks
Can we bring beer?
Yes, but no hard alcohol please. If you are coming to get wasted, you have the
wrong boat. ABSOLUTELY NO DRUGS OR FIREARMS!!
What size cooler can we bring? There
is no strict policy here, but obviously we don't want to trip all over your
monster cooler all day long while fishing. 120's and up should be avoided to
save room. Always better to have a couple of smaller ones, than a coffin sized
cooler! I mention this because it is a routine problem. Thanks!
