About Your Trip
Although Lake Erie isn't the biggest or the deepest of the Great Lakes, it certainly has some of the best fishing, with strong native stocks of Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Perch, and more! On this trip with Captain Charles, you'll chase Walleye and Perch—both fun gamefish that are also known their

You'll be chasing these freshwater sportfish with classic light tackle fishing techniques as well as trolling. Walleye and Perch will hit both bait and lures, so you can switch things up depending on the conditions. Captain Charles will make sure you're set up with the best tackle for the job!
You'll get out there aboard his 27' Sportcraft sportfisher, a beautiful boat with a big deck for fishing. She runs a 300-HP engine so you'll be out there in the blink of an eye, and has plenty of amenities to keep you comfortable. You'll be provided with everything you need for a blue-ribbon fishing trip; all you need to bring is proper clothing for the weather, your Ohio fishing licenses, and a good attitude!

About Your Guide
Captain Charles writes: "Even as a boy in Michigan, I fished every opportunity I had, whether from my dad’s boat or in my uncle’s farm pond. With decades of experience fishing the Great Lakes, I can say there is no better place for Walleye and Perch. I have my USCG
... Read More Captains License and the Ohio Guide License. I take both your enjoyment and safety seriously, and for that reason I choose to limit my trips to 1 to 4 people for Walleye charters, and up to 6 people for Perch. This gives me the best opportunity to not just get everyone directly involved but to also educate my clients on the secrets of fishing the Erie Islands and the methodologies to how we fish. It also means there is room for everyone to be safe, especially in those periods where the fish are hitting and the lines are popping! I particularly enjoy working for families and the opportunity to get someone’s son or daughter as excited about fishing as I am. My commitment to safety also means that I have a zero-tolerance drug policy, and while my guests are welcome to bring beer, extreme inebriation on the water is inherently unsafe and will likely mean the end of your trip.
I am committed to my clients having a successful trip; even on Lake Erie the fish can be fickle. I will keep working until I find the right spot, the right depths, the right lures that are the magic combination that day."

Highly recommend, my dad has some health issues and Captain Slidmore did everything possible to accommodate our needs. We would book with him again without hesitation.
Great with families, hand on, knows where to get your limit!
Half day on the water with captain Charles was great. We caught walleye, sheepshead, and white bass. Took our 4 and 6 year old out with my mom and had a blast. My husband learned how to set the lines and we all reeled in fish to keep (of course
...Read More we had to throw back, too). It really was non stop reeling in lines and setting them for a couple hours straight. At one point we had about 5 different rods to bring in. My oldest could have been out there for another 2 hours.
Couple that with great scenery of put-in-bay, Kelley’s, and cedar point… it was hard to beat being out on the water.
Super patient with young kids and helping them. Highly recommend for adults or families!
We had a great time with Captain Charles! This was the first fishing trip for 2 of these kiddos and he was able to teach them all with so much patience. He knows where the fish are at and how to bring them in. Super clean beautiful boat!
What a great day of fishing. We limited out with some nice fish. Wanted to take my family, many never fished Erie and they had a blast. Captain Charles was very personable and patient. He really worked to get us fish. Would highly recommend and hope to
