Lake Erie Fishin' Edition Charters


Lake Erie Fishin' Edition Charters
(Formerly Limited Edition and Lake Erie Gold Watch Charters)
Some of the Best Fishing in the World on Lake Erie for Walleye, Perch and Smallmouth Bass with Captain John 'JW' Welch at your service on the Roomy 30 ft. Island Hopper Sport Fisherman

Lake Erie Fishing at its best aboard the Fishin’ Edition 

Lake Erie Walleye, Yellow Perch and Smallmouth Bass is our specialty. The Fishin’ Edition. is a 2005 model 30’ Island Hopper. The vessel is a no-nonsense fishing platform and affords ample room for everyone on board. Its design makes it a great vessel for fishing on Lake Erie. 

The Fishin’ Edition is a large vessel that meets USCG regulations. WE CAN ACCOMMODATE PARTIES OF UP TO 10. It is 30’ feet long and 12’ feet wide. It is equipped with multiple radios, GPS systems and fish finders to access the best fishing locations each time we leave the dock.

There is lot’s of room for you to fish or take a break in the cabin. This same cabin affords you shelter from the weather and sun. If you have to don rain gear, it sure is nice to be under cover to do it.

We aim to teach the novice angler techniques to catch fish. Many of our customers do not need coaching. Whatever the case, it is our goal to help you catch fish. You will find some of the finest fishing rods and reels available for your use or you can bring your own gear. Your happiness means continued success for us with repeat business.

Although we do not emphasize it, we do offer trolling for Walleye. There are times when it produces more fish than drifting and casting. Whether or not we troll is up to you. If we troll, you will be an active participant in setting lines and working with the rods. We need to know before we leave the dock if you wish to troll. We still maintain catching fish by drifting and casting is the most fun!

Lake Erie is known for its great walleye fishing. Many fishermen overlook the smallmouth bass fishing. Smallmouth fishing on Lake Erie is as good as it gets. Yellow Perch trips are also a lot of fun. Yellow Perch trips are great family outings and an excellent time to bring the young anglers. 

Please read the stories associated with our web site. They will help you with your Lake Erie vacation. We hope you book with us. We do not offer any special deals or gimmicks. We try to give all our customers the best service available. We thank all of our customers who continue to fish with us year after year.

We can accommodate parties larger than 6 persons. Maximum of 8 for walleye is comfortable and 10 persons for perch at an additional per person charge.

Contact us with any questions and book as soon as possible for your choice of dates. jwelch@lakeeriefishing.com.

Thank all of you for your business and we look forward to more great times on the lake!

From your Fishin’ Edition Walleye, Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch fishing team, Capt. John "JW" Welch, Capt. Adam Welch, First Mate Chet Welch, and First Mate Don Pisula.
