Captain’s log book

The 2017 Lake Erie fishing season has been underway for some weeks. Early on, the jig fishing was spectacular then Mother Nature stepped in and put out a stop sign in the way of cold, windy weather. The wind and big waves stirred up the lake quite a bit and that halted much of the action. I was forced to reschedule many customers, hopefully to better days. The winds have slowed and now we are waiting for the lake waters to clear so we can get into the fish. I’m tired of looking out on gray, blustery days and a lake that is white- capping. The forecast for the next ten days looks promising though. Walleyes that were hatched in 2013, 2014 are waiting and there are millions of them from Toledo to Cleveland.   By June, the 2014 fish  will be 15-17 inches long and they will be filling up fishermen’s coolers all summer and fall for a few years. The annual sport fishing harvest is only around a million fish so we won’t be running out of these walleyes for quite some time. The good hatches and prospects for excellent fishing is good news for the charter captains and other lakeshore businesses such as tackle shops, motels and restaurants. Plus boat sales will likely shoot up and marinas will be docking more boats. As for Mega Bites Charters, I have already taken quite a few reservations for this year so it will be important to get your bookings early especially if there is a specific date you want. While walleye is king, yellow perch is a very close second. May and June is always a good time for perch so keep that in mind. I have plenty of open dates left in May and June but the weekends are getting scarce, which is always the case. Most customers shoot for a weekend but I like weekday fishing best. There’s less boat traffic and often that makes for better catching.   Remember, I supply bait, ice and tackle including rods and reels, for all my charters. So don’t worry if you feel you don’t have the right gear for a Lake Erie fishing charter. I’ve got you covered. Call me at 440-365-9932 or 440-610-1932

Handicapped anglers

Mega Bites Charters is handicaped accessible and all handicapped fishermen are most welcome. However, I require wheelchairs have locking wheels for stability when the lake is choppy. Or, the individual can bring along a deck chair to sit in while on the boat. The chair must have rubber cups on the legs to prevent slipping. Limit of two wheelchairs or deck chairs per outing. Perch trips are perfect for those who are chair bound.
