BlackH2oDog Lake Erie Walleye Charter

Free cancellation
BlackH2oDog Charters offer a hands-on experience on Lake Erie! With Captain David at the helm, you’ll have the best guidance you could have asked for. He’s been fishing on Lake Erie for over 35 years and knows the best spots around the islands of the lake. As you can see from the photos, his trips are very family-friendly and kids are encouraged to participate as well. You’ll be fishing on a 25’ Scout that accommodates up to 4 guests. This express cruiser has a fully enclosed helm that offers protection from wind and rain, so even a tricky weather won’t spoil your day. The boat is powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and features navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and a cooler. Target Walleye any time from Late March to Thanksgiving (early December). Trolling is the most productive and the primary method used to catch Lake Erie Walleye, but you can also try with casting and drift fishing. Walleye over 28" are fairly common on Lake Erie, these Fish Ohio category Walleye can weigh 9 to 13 pounds. For the next few years, the average Walleye size will be 18" to 24". You’ll fish the open waters as well as reef structures in shallow and deep water. Besides Walleye, we might also catch Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass as well as a variety of other species. Capt. David covers your fishing equipment, so you don’t need to rent it. Just purchase your fishing license and bring your snacks and drinks. Kids of all ages are welcome to join. The captain loves to show newbies how to use the equipment and catch fish. Take a trip with BlackH2oDog Charters and have fun on Lake Erie!

Boat Specs


BlackH2oDog is fully packed with amenities, the 242 Scout Abaco is the boat you’ll love spending the day on! BlachH2oDog is an express style boat built by Scout and powered by Yamaha. The Scout is rough-water-hungry with its deep-V hull design and enhanced bow flare that is designed to keep things smooth and dry. The fully enclosed helm with a full wrap-around windshield and Eisenglass enclosure provide protection from wind and rain as well as providing a shade break from the hot summer sun. The entire cockpit, gunwales and foredeck are finished in a diamond nonskid finish, so footing is secure even when wet. Below deck, the cabin offers a private V-berth. We are fitted with Raymarine electronics with multiple Multi-Functional Displays for depth, fish sonar and GPS charts. We also run a 24-mile Radar for those time when weather conditions limit our visibility. We also operate with multiple VHF radios to monitor local conditions. We also carry a Personal Locator Beacon on board. It’s perfect for getting to the best fishing sites, and the aft deck allows plenty of space to make your fishing experience a great one!

My fishing started a a very early age with my father and grandfather. If it swam I wanted to catch it and I spent my childhood fishing in big water and the smallest of ponds. Eventually my father and I focused on Lake Erie. I loved it so much I moved from Central Ohio to the Shores of Lake Erie. My father an I fished club Walleye tournaments. Electronics were simple, chart plotters were not yet in play and we used actual charts and Loran C to mark our spots. My network expanded and I was first mating on 6 pack charters in the Western Basin of Lake Erie. Casting was the primary method of catching a limit of Walleye. I have been fishing the Islands for over 35 years. Spent several years on the Lake Erie Walleye Trail tournament series. Great experience in fishing for Walleye in all types of conditions. I now find myself enjoying sharing the awesome resource that Lake Erie offers. I love teaching people what I have learned and helping others land their best – or their first – fish and hopefully allow them to have as much fun as possible doing so. My charter caters to anglers of all levels, so you can enjoy a fun day on the water and create lasting memories with your family!
