Captain’s log book

The 2017 Lake Erie fishing season is underway and the action is ramping up. With numerous cold fronts behind us, the walleyes are on the move from the lake’s Western Basin into the shallows along the South shore from Cedar Point to Vermilion. It’s about time and I’m itching to pull some big fish which is always the case at Vermilion during the month of June. The weather gods appear to be on our side for a change as the next ten days looks good with temps in thge 70’s. Typical June weather. Walleyes that were hatched in 2013 and 2014  are the main catch with bigger fish from earlier years. Recently, customers pulled nice catches of 17-20-inch fish. That’s what we call “eaters.” Nothing wrong with that.   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. We’ve caught numerous smallmouth bass while casting for walleyes this spring. Most of them have been in the four-pound range. 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. Also, there is professional fishing cleaning available right at the dock. These guys are good and their knives are sharp which means you will get more meat to take home. Cost is $1 pound for walleye and $2 pound for perch (live weight).   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.
