Reel King Charters is here to provide you with some of the best Lake Erie fishing charters imaginable. We fish ice-out to ice-up on the Great Lakes. We spend the majority of the year on Lake Erie’s Western and Central Basin. Our goal is to make each trip as fun and educational as possible.

You can expect Captain Craig Rothgeb or Captain Doug Rothgeb to lead the way on your Ohio fishing trip. Both of these seasoned captains are fully Coast Guard licensed and insured. With their many years of combined experience fishing the Great Lakes, you will be in excellent hands no matter which captain you end up with. Both of these captains will go the extra mile to make sure your trip with them is a success.

Your fishing charter in Lake Erie will begin in Lakeside Marblehead and could go on to explore the nearby areas of Kellys Island, Catawba Island, Sandusky, Ruggles Beach, Huron, Put-In-Bay, Middle Bass, Port Clinton, Bay View, and many other wonderful locations around the Ohio shores of Lake Erie.

Fishing will be done off of our stunning 27ft Sportcraft that is perfect for fishing in Lake Erie. This fishing vessel is fully rigged for Great Lakes fishing trips and is loaded with state-of-the-art equipment for Walleye fishing. You can expect to see all the necessary safety equipment on board including life jackets, flares, VHF radio, fire extinguishers, and first aid. A toilet will be on deck so fishing will not have to get interrupted by going back to the dock for a restroom.

We offer 5 and 8-hour trips targeting the beautiful species that swim Lake Erie. All of our fishing trips will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. A cooler full of ice will be included to keep your lunch and all your drinks fresh. A first mate will be on your trip as well to help you out with anything you may need.

Fishing on Lake Erie with us will have you chasing after Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, and Yellow Perch. A few techniques will we use to catch these species include bottom fishing, drift fishing, jigging, light tackle, spinning, and trolling.

8 Hour Trip
Hands down one of the best charters we have been on! Captain Craig was down to earth and easy to talk to. He let us do as much as we were comfortable doing as in handling the gear so it felt like actual fishing and not just reeling. We learned a lot, had some good laughs and best of all caught fish. We had some rough conditions at first with some big swells but I never felt unsafe. I highly recommend Reel King. If we are ever back in the area we will most definitely book again.
